Re: How far can the modem be placed from entry point

You've been told tripe, it can be as far as is needed, but potentially that affects the impedance of your hub's connection to the network, and needs to be done by a VM technician. If you just buy some cable yourself, then (regardless of supplier promises) that may not be the very high grade required for cable internet, so in addition to the risk of beggaring up the power levels you may introduce noise to the network, affecting speed and reliability for yourself and other customers near you. If this is an unsatisfactory first install, then wait and see if the forum staff can sort things out, failing that raise a formal complaint (online, form in My Virgin Media). If it's a change and you've been with VM for a while, you're looking at a £99 "non-fault call out" charge.
