moving router

 my router is stuck behind the tv in the corner of the house,

my plan is to move router more central about 10m from where it is just now.

1 had the hub 3 but it was wasnt the best so i downgraded to the 2ac 

at the moment i still have coxial cable that came with the hub 3 (the one with isolation cylinder thing on it),

ii was going use some lszh dcs100 premium plus cable that i allready have and some screw in f connectors but i was wondering if i should connect to hub 3 coxial cable or remove it altogether and connect straight into box on the wall thanks ,

iam on 100mb deal at the moment

Re: moving router

you need to get VM to move it as changing the cable can effect you and everyone else in your area.

Re: moving router

your connection is just a split and power balanced cable from a splitter in the green box. change the cable can change the power levels that were set when installed and effect your connection. any faults or bad cable/install can lead to noise injected into the network taking down the connections of everyone in the area. its against the T&C to modify the cable my yourself you will need to get VM to move it. Standard cost for this is £99

Re: moving router

i'm not going to help you break the T&C. not when you have posted on the ISP forum telling them you are doing it. And if you mess it up they will know and you could face £1000's in damage costs.
