I've got a modem connected using a coax cable on the ground level. I would like to move it to the loft.
Next to the coax box for the modem on the ground level, there is also another box with a TV socket (coax). The TV socket is connected to an antenna installed in my loft.
Can I patch the internet connection (coax) to the tv socket (coax) and move the modem upstairs? Could I face any problems with the network speed? My current internet connection is 200/20 Mbps. Could it go possible lower ? I assume the coax cable in the wall for the TV is no longer than 20 meters.
just a note: I don't use the antenna and I'm not planning to do so in the future. So I was thinking about disconnecting it and using the cable which is already wired in for the modem.
current setup: I have a fiber optic internet connection. the optic socket is outside of my house, which is connected using a very short coaxial cable (1m) through the wall to my living room downstairs - my ISP put the modem down there as well. next to the modem, there is a coax tv socket on the wall - I suppose this is connected to the antenna in the loft. I want to disconnect the antenna and move the modem into the loft.
I don't use cable TV / aerial TV. The modem is for my internet connection only.
