hello im using bell express vu satellite service and i was wondering if there are such things as extension cords for the satellite. its the one with a round outside and one little metal thread in the middle.

also a better alternative would be like a wireless adapter if there even is such thing lol

couple of questions...

how does the satelite hook to your computer? does that cable (that's a COAX cable by the way....same as what goes to your TV) not connect into a modem of some kind inside of your house? how does that modem connect to y our computer? what are you trying to extend? the connection between the modem and the satelite or the modem and your computer?

....and are you wanting to extend from the satellite to the box or the box to the TV?...the answer to either is yes...you can extend that connection....to a point...if you get too far away the signal will degrade

well assuming that the cable that goes from your satelite dish to your reciever box is plain coaxial cable...then all you have to do is go to your hardware store and buy one long enough
