Q.  How can I get all my messy cables under control?

A.

First, remove cables that are not in use.
If a cable is not in use now but may be used in the future
still remove it.  Designate a box (or something) for such cables.

In my office I have a power "bus".  Since nearly every device needs
power I placed power bars a even intervals under the desk.  They are
attached (with cable ties) to the underside of the desk.
Then its a short run from nearly every device to a plug.
I then use cable ties to shorten the device power cables.

You can buy a 1 foot crossover ethernet cable for connecting your DSL/cable
modem to you router.
