How easy is it to run cable for a home network?

Wiring yourself?

Experts recommend running network cables through walls. Even though it involves some drilling, it eliminates the need to cross doorways with cables (either under a threshold, which can create a tripping hazard, or above the moulding., which can be unsightly.)

Also, be sure NEVER to run cables through an air conditioning ducts or electrical conduit. This may be a violation of building codes, and it may invalidate some kinds of fire insurance.
