    The only way to tell is to try it. I imagine there will be some loss in signal quality/strength but unsure as to what extent. It comes down to the shielding quality of the cables and physical units as to how much interference is blocked.

    Probably no significant problem, but there's no way we can tell without trying it. Too many variables such as loss connectors that might get involved. As ToddN2000 suggests, try it. No equipment is likely at risk.

    Recommended that don't put them just too near or next to each other. Keep a little space to gain the signal properly. Better ask the cable operator or get help from them. It is not possible to see the actual position of these equipment by us. So depending on guess, not possible to provide fruitful replies.

    I don't think there should be any problem as setup box used infrared and router works on 2.4 & 5Ghz band
