Fishing Cable Through a Wall from Below

Fish cable from belowIf your school has a basement with an unfinished ceiling, you can fish cable from there to first-floor jacks. Drill an 1/8-inch hole at an angle through the floor next to the baseboard. Shove a coat hanger into the hole, then go to the basement and mark a point under the wall 2 1/4 inches from the hole. At that spot, drill a 3/4-inch hole straight up through the subfloor and wall plate.

You can probably just push cable up through the larger hole to the wall opening. If pushing doesn't work, try fishing from above. Allow enough slack to reach the floor and extend another 2 or 3 feet.
