Are on Virgin cable broadband or BT? Do you have any pictures of what the current cabling is?

You may have already thought about this but I would also just consider WiFi signal strength from under the stairs.

Then your router would need coax, possibly RG6 or RG59 as you mention. Depending on distance you may need to change the attenuator if there is one.

Now why the move exactly. If you don't have good coverage at the other end of the house, then the easist course is to get a signal repeater, and plug thatsomewhere in the middle of the house. Or you could for an access point, or use a powerline adaptor instead.

If it's a BT line you've got, then have a chat with one of the Open Reach vans, and see if they can help. They have the kit to route the existing incoming point to the new hub centre location, and it'll give you a dedicated broadband connection as well. If you've creating a wiring hub using ethernet cable, then consider putting 2 points in each room to give you flexibility in the future.

I'm not sure how a Virgin installation would be handled in the future, as they bring the conector box in to the room, and then I think you have the phone, the router, and the broadband at one location, so it might mean that you get it installed in the hub location, and then have to route the TV conection to where the TV is.
