What wall outlets can I connect my cable modem to?

I may need to relocate my modem to another room, but before doing so, how can I tell if that room is capable of modem and phone line connection?  I have read/heard that although the outlet appears to be modem capable, it may not be.

The room would have to have both a live coax outlet and a phone jack. There’s really no way for you to test it until you physically move the equipment (unless you possibly have your wiring labeled).
