Hi everyone. At the moment my rooter is in the airing cupboard in my little boys bedroom. No idea why it is in there but not ideal for many reasons. The co axial and power leads are there. In my Lounge is a single cable from the virgin box outside going into the back of my TiVo box. My question is as follows:
does the cable going into the TiVo box also carry the broadband signal. If it does can I simply plug my rooter in next to the TiVo box and use an Ethernet cable to connect the two. Result would hopefully be fully working broadband and wireless.
rather than mess with cables & risk breaking the service, thus needing a callout anyway - I would call retentions and negotiate a new contract which included repositioning the equipment as part of an upgrade e.g. get a V6 box but have moving the hub close to the TV made part of the deal. Should be do-able as Virgin prefers those 2 devices to be near to each other. they can correctly then kill the cable to the aerial cupboard (from outside the house) so that it does not cause any interference & rebalance /retest all your signal levels to the new setup
