I am trying to relocate my residential gateway from the study to the living room. In the living room, I only have one coaxial outlet. Can I connect the Residential Gateway using the coaxial outlet and then connect the receiver using ethernet cable or usb cable at the back of the Residential Gateway? I also want to relieve the DHCP assignment duty from the Residential Gateway and let a standalone wireless router takes care of that. Do you all see any problems? I have minimal knowledge about networking, so pardon me if this doesn't make sense at all. Below is a summary of how I want to set it up.
Coaxial -> RG -> Ethernet -> Receiver
-> Wireless Router -> Powerline Adap. -> Comp1 (Ethernet)
-> Xbox (Ethernet)
-> Smart TV (Ethernet)
-> Tablets (Wireless)

How is the RG currently connected to the NID? If by Coax, continue...
Can you map out your entire coax network in your house, Include all spliters and duplexors? It may be possible to change the "direction" of a diplexor and do what you want.
HOWEVER, the RG must provide the DHCP duty for your DVR/STBs. You can shift that duty for other devices IF you can isolate them behind your router. There are other posts that help with doing that, for example see post 2 in this thread.

No, all other receivers are COAX connection, so it sounds like I can't just move the RG from one COAX outlet in the house to another COAX without a technician?
The RG must hand out DHCP because of the TV.. Is that why people connecting to another router needs to have a different IP range so that the RG and router can each their own territories?
Or is there any cheap devices (not professional type) that I can figure out interference? I tried to undo the security console or motion sensors but no luck isolating the problem.
Thanks all for your input!
