moving gateway to living room from basement

Can I connect the red ONT ethernet cable from the fiber dmark to an ethernet jack that extends to the living room 60 ft away then plug my gateway into that jack. Currently the gateway is in the basement and connected with the 6 ft red ethernet cable that came with the gateway.  However the signal for the wifi is horrible and we cannot stream to our tv. Does the connecting ethernet cable have any different configuration from regular ethernet cable. thanks

No problem, you can use any good Ethernet cable from the ONT to the gateway, nothing special about that red one.
