Isn't there an Ethernet connection available? Can't you use your own
WiFi? My cable modem came with a built in router & WiFi. But I put
in bridge mode and use a Linux box as my router/firewall. I have a
separate WiFi access point that runs 802.11n.

Yes, it comes with 4 "holes", one used by the TV. The issue is that
the three new little boxes and cables are (mandatorily?) placed as
close to the TV in the sitting room as possible.

Three new boxes? If your TV is connected via ethernet (assuming the
4 "holes" are RJ45 sockets), max distance is 100m.

My computer room is on another room, far away, upstairs. With ADSL, as
I had ages ago cabled the house to have phone on several rooms (before
wireless home phones were popular), the ADSL router and AP were placed
in the "computer room". Everything neat and working.

Things happen at different times in different places, but for me, ADSL
came good few years after DECT phones became popular.

The ISP technicians did not place a cable from tv to computer on the
other room. The solution they offer is you buy a wifi card for the
desktop machine. I told the ISP that was impossible, as some of my
devices are not computers at all, they do not accept cards.

Do they have a USB port? Try googling "DWA-121 Wireless N 150 Pico USB
Adapter". I've just bought a couple of those.

However, a friend told me that the technicians have an obligation to
install the cable where the clients need it, but to me they denied the
I'm on my own for that.

Why don't you tie a cat5 cable on the end of our ADSL cable and pull it
