My room mate's room is next to mine..
She does gov work and must have her computer wired into the router (for strict security measures) so it has to be in her room.
I have always done 5Ghz WiFi using the Linksys router. No complaints.
But I really wanted to be wired because it's a more reliable connection and makes streaming to other devices in the house much easier and snappier.
Her closet is located on the wall that separates our rooms, and the router is under her desk right next to it. I just drilled right through the wall. It comes out in her closet. It's nice and concealed. Only place it can be seen is just coming right out the closet along the baseboard.
Couldn't be happier with the way it worked out.
Now I'm getting a solid 65mb/s down and 20-30mb/s up. Much more consistent connection.

Won't that be an insulation problem now?

Thanks guys. So glad you're as thrilled as I am!!

(And no, its an interior wall. It contains no insulation at all. It was literally hollow and strait through)

Should've drilled a peephole while you were at it.
