hey guys, need some help, just moved into a new place.
I have a bit of a dilemma. I have CableVision/OptimumOnline. I had the service installed a week ago, but the thing is, by my front door, that is where the main line in cable is, that cable has a splitter, one going to the cable modem and the other going to the TV in the living room. The cable that goes into the living room, it has a splitter to the living room TV and the other cable goes to my guestroom. The cable that goes into the guest room has another splitter, one cable going to the TV in the guest room, another that goes to the TV in the bedroom.
Front Door --- to cable modem and living room
Living Room --- to living room tv and guest room
Guest Room --- to guest room tv and bedroom
Now the thing is, I moved the cable modem from the front door area and removed the splitter and instead put a barrel connector just to pretty much extend that cable, so now pretty much its one long wire from the living room which is split to the living room tv and guest room, from the guest room another splitter to guest room tv and bedroom, and bedroom now has a splitter for bedroom tv and modem.
My dilemma is that the TVs work fine, but the cable modem that has now gone through 2 splitters keeps loosing connection every 20 minutes. I do have a router, but the thing is that all the equipment that is in the bedroom has an Ethernet wire so the router is in my bedroom too, I have a TV, TiVo, sound system, computer, and one just in case. So the modem has to be in my room so I do not have to re-wire the entire apartment.
I want to know, what do I need to buy and at which point would i need to connect it in order to avoid any signal lose? Please help
