Bad move. The correct/better way to do it.
Install Cat 5e between the locations and fit RJ45 sockets. Then short patch leads between the modem & socket and socket & hub. And if you are sensible put a second cable run in just in case you need a local network connection close to the modem - for example a burglar alarm control box might be tucked away in the same cupboard.
Cat5e will normally give Gbit on 30m runs so that should be enough for the future.
