Hello Ed47.

Thanks for your first post and welcome to our Community.

Sorry to hear the cable supplied is too short to connect the hub in a location you prefer.

We all know how important a gaming room is.

I am pretty sure I can arrange for an engineer to attend and relocate the Hub for you.

Plus it's not advisable to purchase a 3rd party cable as it may have an impact on the network.

If you don't mind, I will need to send you a private message to pass security and arrange the visit.
If you can check your logo at the  top right of your screen that would be great. 



Wi-Fi is a shared half-duplex connection that degrades the interactive experience with Jitter and Latency.

Consider a long network cable to link the Hub to the console.
