Updating and relocating router
I am updating and relocating (I think) my router. Right now I have my modem SB6141, a Linksys ea6900 and 24 port sw. all in one corner of the basement in my 2 story house. Considering, the wi-fi singal really is not that bad !! I would like to move the new router ea9500 to the top of the basement stairs wicth would be very close to center of house . This should give me full bars any place in the house ??
My qustion is what would be better moving my modem with the router or just the router ? If I move both I would need to run 80 ft of rg/6 and 80 ft of cat 6. If I move only the router then 160ft of cat 6 there and back to my sw. The corner they are at now is where the cable sevice enters, thats kinda why I put modem there . I have a vra-900b amp where it comes in the house FWD 52-1002 0db RTN 5-42 0db. right now my signal is Downstream 12dbmv on all 8 channels with 37 and 38 db s/n Upstream 40 and 41 dbmv on the 4 channels. Would I be better with moving both or just one ? Also would a newer or difernt modem be of any help ? To a degree mony is not issue good working network is !!! BTW I only have basic service 24 dl and 2.5 ul runs all the tv's and puters in the house with no issues, most are hard wired with cat 6 just need wi-fi for hand held items .
Thanks for any input and help
