Staple gun help for network cabling please :)

I stapled a 20 metre cable to bring internet to the lounge. I did it good in most places & cabling looks good around the skirting. but the problem is that the gunds not angled so I couldnt staple the wires right into the corner so it doesnt look that neet around the doors. the cable turned out tobe 10m short so I will need to do it again. So can anyone recommend me a decent staple gun please?

Here's one I found on Amazon. would that be any good>

You need to be careful when clipping the cable into corners that you don't bend it too much, otherwise it won't work.

dont like the cable clips. looks messy. I like the way Sky & Virgin-Media just fit it with their staple gun. I want something like that :)

have u ever thought of trunking,so much tidier,and they do one with an adesive backing,and you never no you might need to run more cables in it,ie rj45 cable for hard wiring to you router,just a thought

You could always try some flat cable for running under carpet etc.

You can get it in lengths of up to 30 metres from here

its for my temporary rented accomodation. the cable only cost £3 for 20m rj45 so this is cheaper option than Powerline. just want to make it look tidy.

theres also 30m for £4.30 delivered

When I buy a house I'm gonna get the whole wiring sorted before decorating.
