I currently have ATT Uverse. I have the router in my front room but want to move the router to the other side of the room. Currently the main feed to the router comes up from under the floor, my plan was to cut the feed wire (Cut the fitting off) and then feed it throught the floorboards into the new position. This will require a new fitting to be crimped once it is poked through. The problem is the wire does not look like the old syle coax wires it still has the copper needle coming out of it but the crimp fitting looks different. Any advice on how to crimp the wire or if it needs to be professionally done, i can pretty much do everything apart form the fitting on the end and ATT want to charge me almost $200 for a service call. Any advice ?????

Thanks for the reply. The fitting definitely wont go back through the hole, i thought about opening the hole up a bit but after looking at the hole from under the house i realised the installer had also drilled through a supporting beam so i just cant open it up. I do have 2 other boxes in the house already (3 in total) one of which is wireless, so im a little nervous about going with regular coax, i might give it a go though just to see. I will take a look at the tools - The fitting is a trs-6l . Do you have any recomendations on the best tool for it ? Thanks in advance

The reason for moving the router is we are moving the tv to the other side of the room along with the PS3, Apple TV etc. The fitting on the end is a trs-6l, i hoped it would be as easy as cutting and re-crimping.

It does at that. I'm of the hope that I'll not have to use my coax gear much more. I'm more interested in Twisted Pair crimpers, etc.
