In case this helps. My house is also on a concrete slab. I ran a
cable from the garage up through a closet and into the attic. I hired
an electrician to install an electrical outlet in the attic (under one
hour job), and put an 8-port switch in the attic. Four of the ports
run cables down into the upstairs bedrooms, and the remaining three
cables exit the attic to the outside through a vent, run down the side
of the house, and reenter at various points. The house is stucco so I
needed a masonry drill bit, and of course you want to seal the hole
after the cable is in place. Those three cables require outdoor-rated
cable, which is even more expensive than plenum-rated.
