Looking to hire somebody for Access point install
Is there somebody I can hire to do an access point install at a house? The Rogers modem is on the 2nd floor, and I need better internet in the basement. Looking to have this done asap.

Keep in mind, it wasn't cheap (cost of about $400 per run), but I decided for the price it was worth it to reduce my internet frustrations. Now I have a TP-Link EAP245 in the middle of the home and every corner has great signal. No extenders required.

Yeah, it seems very lucrative. There is a lot of know-how and experience involved, having to go through walls, across floors, heading up into the attic, pulling tons of cables. If you can put in cables BEFORE a builder puts up the walls, it is significantly cheaper. But after what I paid for 3 days of work, I tell myself I'm in the wrong business.

Getting the credentials to take out a permit as a contractor requires formal training, a contractor's license, and other non-trivial paperwork. Doing this kind of work above-board also requires insurance.
If you pay $400 per drop to a legitimate contractor, what you're paying for is the hope of competent work and the reasonable assurance that that the contractor's insurer will pay out if the installer does something stupid, like drills through a gas line (or through your hydro service cable) and blows your house up.
Doing this kind of work as a side-hustle is doing electrical work without a license; you will regret it if you make a mistake that harms someone or if your local electrical safety authority catches you and decides to make an example out of you.

If you have central heating/cooling, plenum cable can make runs significantly easier.

Just do it yourself. It's not rocket science. YouTube it.
