    I would do it from the drain where the hose goes into. Odds are it's not the air vent if you already tried snaking it with a hand one.

    Ah, now I see. Besides the fact you'd have to go below the sink (not a good thing) you'd have to rip out the wall all the way around the bathroom and replace it to do it that way. While I'd be as...
