Relocating modem/internet from one room to another

Relocating modem/internet from one room to another

I need to relocate my modem/ wifi from one room to another. My father recently moved into my home,  because of his rapidly deteriorating health he requires the bedroom closest to the bathroom with extra windows.  Does Xfinity provide this service?  If it makes a difference I have HD Complete and have been a happy customer for over 25 years.   

 

Thank you, Nita

What exactly are you saying that you need ? Are you saying that you need a coaxial cable outlet in that room ? Can the WiFi where it is now not reach in to that room where he will be ?

Re: Relocating modem/internet from one room to another

I have two rooms.  Room 1 presently has my modem/wifi.  Room 2  presently has Cable Tv.    So both rooms do have cable wires in them.    I simply need to switch the location of these devices.  Room 1 to have cable tv   Room 2 to have modem/wifi.   Will the the cable wire that was used for the tv be able to handle the modem/wifi?  Or will I have to run a more specific wire into room 2?

Depending on the signal strength, it should be o/k. Give it a try.
