Coax Splitters - What to look for?
Hey guys, I’m trying to hook my cable lines back up. Current setup is the cable line connected to one coax going to our guest room. I did this just to get our internet hooked up and I knew I could move my modem later.
All other lines at some point had been cut. Fortunately all lines are long enough that I can put the coax connectors on the ends and still use them. But here’s my question, what splitter do I get? I thought I’d read somewhere that a splitter with like 2000 MHz was what you look for. But then I read today on the Xfinity forums that the 5-1000 MHz was what you need.
For now, I’m mainly focused on making sure a line in the basement is working so I can move the modem and router. So cable internet is the service in mind. But I want to hook all lines up should we in the future get satellite service or even cable through Xfinity.
I’ve tried to read on these splitters and now I come to you wonderful people. I’ve read about MHz. I’ve read about signal loss. I’m looking at the very least a 4 way splitter, maybe even 5 or 6 to cover different rooms. Do I need to just get one splitter to cover most rooms with television in some form (antenna, cable, satellite) and just keep a separate line for internet?
