let's say I have a cable modem and a wired router.

I have my coaxial outlets at point A and my router is at point B, which is quite a bit of distance (across floors and walls).

question is, would it be a better idea to have a long coaxial cable to go from point A to the modem then use a short Network cable to hook up between the modem and router, or use a short coaxial cable and long network cable?
[or does it matter in the first place?]

(I have yet to buy the cables and cable price isn't a concern yet)

doesnt matter. I would have the modem by the computer desk. Would make it easier to reset and trouble shoot if your internet goes down for some reason. power resets, firmware resets and such.
