Does Viasat have an official number for what is normal and/or acceptable cable resistance? Based on the meter in the modem screen it seems like 8 would be in the middle.

Not sure what is considered the max allowable, but mine is showing 2.5 Ohms at the moment.

5 or above is NOT good and indicates there is a problem that must be resolved.

5 or above at time of installation will not allow an installation to continue/be completed.

Every value below 5 is fine.
