Need help running wire for modem- and fast!

2019 30í AS Classis. Dish TV internet installing modem tomorrow for high speed internet. Will need to to run wire from outside to inside. I will not permit holes to be drilled. Any ideas of where/ how to run the wire? I assume it will be coax. There is a coax fitting for satellite outside not use but do not know itís terminus inside the AS. Ideas? Thanks.

It should connect right behind the TV. If itís not there then check the access point behind the access point in the overhead storage on the wall.

You don't want to use the built-in AT&T Internet? Why? DISH's version of high speed isn't what qualifies as high speed in your home.

Anyway, the connection from the DISH dish is probably coax that connects to a satellite modem. You already have an exterior coax connection running from outside (two in fact) to inside your trailer. The satellite connection ends up in the wall behind your dining room TV. It is marked "Satellite". It is somewhat hard to find most of the time because AS doesn't pull it all the way up to the overhead cabinet where your DVD player is located.

If you want to go this route, I can walk you through how to locate the cable and feed it up to the DVD cabinet.

The built-in ATT internet has been a disaster. I am going to call Turk for some advice. In a nutshell I have internet connectivity issues with ATT.
As to the DISH internet issue that is the subject of my post, the tech was not able to find the satellite pigtail beneath the DVD player so he ended up just splitting the CATV wire behind the TV. Worked perfect and the DISH modem fits behind the TV. Thanks to all for the help.
