Moving your modem to another room in your house can seem like a daunting task, but it’s actually a relatively simple process. In this post, we’ll walk you through the steps to make it happen.
First, locate where the cable wires are coming through the outside of your house. The black wire is typically the one bringing the internet to your house. If you want to move your modem to another room, you’ll need to cut the wire that’s currently connected to it. This is usually done with wire cutters or a pocket knife.
Next, purchase a 50-foot coax cable (RG-6). This should be long enough to run to the other side of your house. Connect one end of the cable to the wire you just cut, and run the other end to the room where you want your modem to be.
You’ll need to drill a hole through your floor and subfloor to run the cable up to the room above. Once you’ve done that, connect the cable to the back of your modem.
It’s that simple! You may need to purchase additional fittings to connect the coax cables together if the 50-foot cable isn’t long enough. Once you’ve connected everything, turn on your modem and you should be good to go.
While this process may sound intimidating, it’s actually quite easy to do. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to leave a comment below.
