Hi everyone,

 

I have Technicolor modem from vodafone that is connected to wall mount in the living room.

 

This modem suits all my needs as it has all features I need (like white lists, port forwarding, etc), has acceptably stable performance and provides two band WiFi. The only issue is its location. It placed in outer corner of the house and WiFi coverage is not enough for my backyard. Closer to edge of my yard and in garage connection is weak and unstable.

 

I want to put it to the other side of the house, approximately 10m from its original place. After quick research I found that it works on DOCSIS 3.1 protocol which is based on standard TV cables. There's my question.Will it work if I just buy some 15m UHF cable and move modem to other place, or there can be some gotchas?

Hi, are there any other RG6 cables that Telstra/Voda installed for TV's in the house, then it would be possible to connect one of those back at the demac and move the modem to there.

 

You could run a new RG6, but be aware you MUST use tri sheild, and it must use approved and correctly installed F connectors.

 

I would recommend asking Voda or a suitably qualified tech to add the cable for you, that way its all kosher.
