My VIP5662W is currently co-located with my Telus modem and connected with an ethernet jumper. I have to relocate the modem and I won't be able to wire between the new modem location and the existing VIP5662W, which is staying put.

 

Arris literature says this is doable, does anyone know how?

 

Any and all help appreciated.

You never mentioned what modem/router you are currently using. Providing you have the proper Telus equipment (modem or access point) the instructions are easy to follow. Please select the proper instructions for your particular installation. https://www.telus.com/en/bc/support/article/optik-tv-self-install

This document suggests you just need to follow the prompts on the TV screen.

 

You need either a Telus T3200M gateway, or a T1200H / T2200H gateway & Telus supplied Access Point (VEN501) from what I can gather in order to set the Arris unit up wirelessly.
