Hi everyone,

 

I've just moved into a new house and trying to get my internet all wired up and just had a general question about the Comcast coaxial cable in. 

 

I've managed to find my coaxial in the basement. My question is there a recommend cable length for the coaxial to my router. Ideally would like the best performance rather than best location for me.

Wondered if coaxial has any cable limitations?

You should leave a foot or two extra maybe in case repairs need to be made in the future. Cable loses signal over distance so it would depend how big your house is to get coax to your modem (not your router).

Re: Ridgers

Yes sorry normal have a combo modem a router.

 

This time using the ISP modem. Currently cable in is routed to the living room and has a broken connector.

 

So looking to rerun the coax to the modem in a sever rack in the basement. Id say the basement is 40FT long and the cable in is the other side of the basement as to where the rack would be.

 

Just wanted to make sure than the new lenght of cable wouldnt decrease the performance.

As long as you do good connections and quality splitters you’re fine
