Lol, dude, okay I was in a similliar situation: My tv and xbox are downstairs and pc is upstairs....so I went to a mom and pop computer shop and bought 85 ft. of Cat-5 cable. I have not had the time to run it through the walls yet so...it just creeps down the stairs to my x-box! Kinda tacky but worth it!:)

OK I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM BUT I HAVE A ALL MY COMPUTERS CONNECTED ON CABLE MODUEM BUT I CHOSE TO USE THE UPSTAIRS TO BRING IT DOWN STAIRS, WHAT I DID WAS DRILLED A LIL WHOLE THROUGH THE FLOOR TO BRING IT DOWNSTAIRS! BUT THIS MAY SOUND DUMB BUT ITS NOT, I JUST RIPPED UP THE CARPET A BIT AND IT IS BEHIND A DESK BECAUSE IT IS IN THE COMPUTER ROOM AND IT GOES THROUGH THE CEILING OF THE ONLY ROOM THATS NOT FINISHED! WELL THATS WHAT I DID AND HOPEFULLY IT GAVE YOU SOME IDEAS OF WHAT TO DO!
YOU CAN ALSO GET A LAPTOP AND CONNECT THEM AND THEN GET A NETWORK CARD AND HOOK UP UP THAT WAY!!! THEN YOUR COMPUTERS RIGHT THERE! BECAUSE IT IS A PAIN TO GO UP STAIRS JUST TO GET IN ONE ROOM! IT WAS A PAIN JUST FOR ME JUST TO GO IN ONE OTHER ROOM! JUST GET A LAPTOP PROBABLY AND THAT WOULD PROB WORK THE BEST AND NOT SUCH A HASTLE! WELP I HOPE I GAVE YOU SOME IdeAS OR EVEN HELPED YOU!:)
