    A friend lives in a 4 story condo and is experiencing erratic/slow connections on one of his two laptops. (A 5 year old Inspiron).
    Comcast recently installed their Xfinity service, including phone service, in the basement, and I suggested it might make more sense to have the equipment on the second or third floor.
    If that makes sense, how difficult is it to move this equipment? I've installed their modems before, but have never fooled with moving the phone service.

    As long as extending the cable input doesn't cause any problems (ie: signal issues), it should simply be a matter of moving all of the hardware to another location.
