hide your network cable with carpet. customer sends in a small sample of carpet fibres. company determine the average colour, then die a requested length of already white-fibred cable to that colour. crimp the ends and dispatch.

ideal now that people have found out that wireless isnt reliable (or secure).

       Way too dangerous. Cables are easy enough to trip over without being camoflauged.

       Tucking the camoflaged wire into the corner between wall and carpet solves the problem of tripping.

       How about sticking with the regular cable but covering it with camo duct tape???

       i keep reading this as carpet fire. I'd like to be able to set fire to my downstairs carpet & have it regrow somehow.

       weave fiber into a carpet for a powerful mesh network

       sp. 'die' -> 'dye'?   

       Nice idea, anyway, with [Voice]'s modification.

       I first thought this to be a suggestion for running the network cables in the carpet itself, crimping jacks at every few feet around the edges.

       be good for a long hallway carpet in a building - also is very secure as there is no easy, single point to interdict the cable, especially if the whole carpet, and not just one section of cable, became the connection +
