Coax Connection

Hi, 

My internet cable currently comes into the house and then routes through an internal wall into another room and then into the router.

I need to move my router into the first room which is not a problem but I cant pull the cable through the wall due to the connection on the end being too big for the hole.

Is it possible to remove the connection at the end, pull the cable through the wall and then re attach the connection?

I was not sure if the cable is crimped inside the end connection and it is single use?

I do not want to cut the cable in any way, simply remove and then re-attach the end connector.

Thanks

Re: Coax Connection

You should not attempt this modification yourself.

It is necessary to get Virgin Media to do this at a charge of £99.

Unfortunately, due to COVID, this sort of non-fault work can’t be carried out.

Re: Coax Connection

Might just be a case of making the hole bigger then!

Re: Coax Connection

If you can make the hole large enough to fit the connector through and then fill it in afterwards, that would be acceptable.

Just don't remove the connector as doing so may introduce noise which will not just affect your connection but also your neighbours.

Re: Coax Connection

The F connector is crimped onto the cable, so even if you remove it you won't have the means to reconnect it properly. As advised, widen the hole.
