Before the gateway installation starts, there are key bits of information Sea Ranch residents will need to know. When the gateway (router) is installed inside your home it will be placed within 8 feet of the ONT and near an electrical outlet. This is a default placement for each residence. In some cases you may prefer the gateway to be located in another area of your home. This can be accomplished by the extension of wiring whether from the inside of the home or outside.
If this applies to you there are a few options. The gateway can be moved to another room in the house, by means of a fiber extension. You can also leave the gateway where it’s at and extend ethernet throughout your home. That way you can plug into your internet from multiple locations such as, having the gateway placed in the living room, but having an ethernet jack in the office for your home desktop. Most of the time these extensions are an easy process, but it does require some precautions and specific installation knowledge.
