use coax wire for internet

I am looking to improve internet connection reliability across my home. Can I use the existing coax cabling in my home to wire PCs in rooms that are away from the wi-fi gateway?

We are here to help, @tdp224.


We recommend that you you use ethernet cables instead of coax because then you could connect them directly to your gateway for the best speeds.


Here is more information on how to improve the Wi-Fi connection in your home.


Let us know if you have any more questions or concerns.
