Thread: Cable modem question

    Cable modem question

    My cable modem and router sit atop a shelf above my wall mounted TV and I want to relocate it to another wall. I recently got rid of my cable TV but kept the internet. The cable that used to plug into my cable box is not being used and I was wondering if I could plug my modem into the unused TV coax cable.

    Otherwise I will have to call the cable company and give them even more money.

    should, as long as its connected from the source...

    I chatted with customer support and they said that it wouldn't work because only one cable was "turned on" to send/receive the internet.

    yeah, that's the one that has to be changed at the box outside..if you have coax cable outlet in every room, you have a box outside that you'd just have to change the connection over to that plug..

    I'm going to have my dad try that today. It'll save him the headache of drilling holes and snaking cable through.
