I'm a bit of a novice and just wondering what sort of saw I should use to cut through already installed laminate flooring. We are running cables for full fibre and borrowed a circular saw but getting way too much kick back. I'm guessing a smaller blade with lots of teeth would be better or saw???

Have you ever tried cutting laminate with an oscillating tool ? I have and it takes forever.
You must have the blade set too low so it's touching the ground.
Reduce the height to slightly less then the thickness of the laminate, I'm guessing that's 6mm laminate looking at that.
Or use some ducting or new skirting board with inbuilt ducting.
I'd be using a track saw or a oscillating multitool - depending on circumstances.
The blade on that circular saw!? I'd not use that for anything.
Have you not considered a mesh system, and leaving your router location where it is?
Out of interest why did you lay carpet over the laminate flooring ?
Also is it definitely boards and not concrete under your laminate ?
I installed laminate last year and had FTTP installed two weeks ago. The ONT was installed on entry point of fibre cable. I had put one length of cat5e ethernet cable behind the scotia from ONT position to hub position across the room.
