My question is does my Telus modem require the coax connection or can I remove it and use that for my cable internet?
Can I remove the moca adapter in the living room tv that runs into the pvr and run a Telus Wi-Fi box there instead so I can use that coax jack for my cable modem?
Telus had offered a solution as to plug the pvr next to their modem in the kitchen which would free up my living room coax jack and then to use a Wi-Fi optik box there instead. Why does the pvr need to be plugged in next to the modem and why can't I just run 2 Wi-Fi boxes?
Also, if I were to plug the pvr next to the modem, then can I eliminate the coax connection and just run it with the Ethernet connection?
The modem requires the coax connection as it is connected to the moca adapter going in to the PVR. The PVR must remain hard wired straight to the modem in some way for the PVR function to work on the network.
You can put a wireless box in the PVR's current location if you can hard wire the PVR in a different location in the home. Plugging it in next to the modem works just fine. Just connect a cat5 cable to the PVR and plug it in to any of the yellow ports on the back of the modem.
