@orbistatThank you so much for this helpful reply! So, what I'm reading is that with the proposed solution with my current hardware, it's not possible and that I should get a hard wired solution (will have to pay my cable guy to do this). I was looking at the powerline adapters but was reading that they don't work as well or at all if your wall points are not on the same circuit. So that will be a bit of a gamble. I think I'll have to bite the bullet and pay to get a cable run down to the new location! Kicking myself as I had time to think about the location but it was foiled on the day when the NBN technician presented me my options.

Hi, I just got NBN installed yesterday and firstly, props to TPG for the smooth transition and activation, I was pleasantly surprised! At the time of installation (mine is HFC), the NBN technician installed my new NBN wall plate in a different location to that of my ADSL. I was happy with this location but I am now regretting it as I forgot that I needed my wired CCTV Lan connection to be near the modem! Sorry, I've tried trawling the internet but couldn't exactly find the right answer to my problem so was hoping the community could help! So, I have a Swann NVR-7285 with NHD-810 cameras all wired up to wall plate to a downstairs study. Ethernet cable from the wall plugs into my previous ADSL modem. My question is this: Is there a solution to make the connection from the wall plate (my NVR) wireless so that I don't have to run ethernet cable along the skirting (which would look unsightly as it runs across the front door entrance) so that it can talk to my new modem? Can I use my old (TPG supplied) Netcomm NB304N as a wireless bridge or access point so that sits in the old location with the ethernet from the CCTV system attached while that is bridged to my new NBN connection via the TP-Link Archer VR1600V via access point or similar? In my head, I envision this: Internet ---> VR1600V ---> wireless bridge ---> NB304N --- ethernet --> CCTV I am not too familiar with the details of networking and have spent hours trying different things, but to no avail and any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
