Modem with a cable splitter a bad idea?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm having trouble finding a definite answer on this one. Currently the coaxial wire that feeds my cable modem has a splitter on it from the wall (so I can have it go to both my TV and modem) and was wondering if this negatively impacts my internet speeds. I live in California and my ISP is Cox Cable if anyone is interested. Is there a special splitter or high quality one I should buy to ensure a good signal?

They generally shouldn't have a significant impact.
Your signal has already likely been split as it comes into your home.

I won't have any impact, like beers said, it's most likely already split when it comes into your house

Just make sure to buy one for the right frequency and make sure to cap any unused coaxial ports.

I grabbed a 5-2500MHz one today. I saw others that were 5-900MHz or 5-1000MHz. I figured the greater range was more useful. I don't know what the frequency means for a splitter, I could be wrong. Lol.
