Default Need help to uncluster ***k my apartment

I apogolize because these questions do not completely revolve around hdtv, but I have looked around and gotten a jist of things I can do but not yet a complete idea. This is not just a hd issue as it is more of a coax and ethernet and hdmi issue.

Well here is the situation:

I am currently renting an apt. and as such cannot drill holes in the wall to run cables trough the wall.

The problem that arises is that there are two (2) televisions. One (1) television is in the bedroom and one (1) television is situated in the living room; there is only one (1) cable outlet situated in the living room. The bedroom contains no coax cable outlets; just a phone line outlet.

Currently I subscribe to internet and cable tv through comcast. Originally I had my own modem which I still use (Motrola Surfboard SB6120). The modem is situated in the bedroom along next to the computer. I currently have one cisco/linksys wireless router set up. Comcast has given an ARRIS TM402P/110 modem that can hande internet and telephone. It is currently only handling telephone. Comcast has also given there standard Motorola Top box for the hdtv in the living room. They only supplied a small motorola box for the hdtv in the bedroom (not even component output its the red yellow white outputs). Comcast said it would be an additional 35 dollars a month to place a hd top box in the room.

So here are my questions.
I am getting rid of the current surround sound set up I have, to mainly remove clutter; is there a wireless solution that works well for 5.1 or better? Or alternatively would it be better just to invest in a 2.0 solution with fiber optic to produce good sound? (I would much rather have accurate sound come out over surround sound with crappy audio).

Is there any sort of upscaling equipment that would help output a hd signal from the hd channels in the bedroom without me having to pay comcast an extra 35 dollars a month?

Is there any sort of wireless transmitter that works well for coax?
I have heard of using the power outlet but it does not quite make much sense to me.

I can get rid of the modem and just use the ARRIs that comcast has supplied no problem to get rid of one piece of equipment in the set up, but would it have detrimental effects to the internet speeds if a call comes in or something?
(I imagine it would not as currently the splitter thats splitting the signal to both the modem and the ARRIs is probably creating more noise then if I had just used the ARRIs in the first place.

I currently do not have a wireless card in my desktop pc in the bedroom (I do not wish to install one either). I would rather buy another router so I can move the ARRIS into the living room, connect the phone there as well as move the router there and buy another router to place in the bedroom as sort of an extender so I can plug an ethernet cable into my computer but would not have to run an ethernet from the living room into the bedroom. how would this effect the signal for the internet?

Have you considered keeping the surround sound system and using that flat adhesive speaker wire to absolve the clutter? ghostwire is the stuff i've seen and it looks pretty sweet: http://sewelldirect.com/Sewell-Super...pool-White.asp
