"Use coat hanger to fish"

From: Kenneth <"kscron@execpc.com"@mail.execpc.com>

Take a wire coat hanger and cut off the bottom part. Cut one end at an angle. You now have a drill bit. Drill through the floor at hte edge of the carpet and just in front of the molding. Go to lower level and locate wire. Measure over about 1 3/4" for the center of wall and drillup. You should be right below your cut-in. This drill bit does not get caught on the threads of the carpet.
