- Hard wire some Ethernet ports in the kitchen, so that I could connect to the router with a laptop without needing to crawl under the stairs (a necessity when changing wireless network settings).
- Add an Ethernet port in the basement, so that I could relocate the backup server.
Then I remembered the Needham institution You Do It Electronics (or, to the initiated], You Blew it Electronics). Wow. They had exactly what I needed, and at excellent, excellent prices.
And subsidiary goodness: I actually got all the wiring installed and it works!
