I am attempting to connect a cable modem upstairs to a WiFi router downstairs. However, there is not a straight-run ethernet cable between these two points. I have a switch upstairs which connects the upstairs/downstairs jacks located on a 4-port wall plate nearby.
Will it work, if I connect the ethernet out of the back of the cable modem, to switch, then to the 'internet' port on the cable modem?
