For a tree install, I've thought about a mesh network powered off solar panels.
Running ethernet up a tree is sort of asking for it to be hit by lightning. You'd want to go out of the way surge protect everything.

|ReverseHandedJO||the more i think about running an AP and.or network adapter up a tree/pole , what about snaking the Ethernet (POE) thru a garden house to protect it form the elements and varmints. a garden hose is designed to keep the water inside it, so what about keeping moisture out of it.|

Mines in the living room on one side of the house. Have a 4 port switch tied to the router for extra ports. A powerline adapter in the router going to a daughter's bedroom across the house for her desktop and network printer. And a wireless repeater in the middle of the house so the wife can use ipad on far side of house and on back porch. And two 4 port switches in my office for all my stuff.
Thinking about adding another 4 port switch between the modem and router so I can use software to track facebook IM for 2 of my kids.

The trees kill signal but it's manageable. No squirrel problems since the dogs finished them off, and I think birds just don't care.
