Can I split cable to TV and modem?
Similarly, you may ask, can you split a cable line for TV and Internet?
Coaxial cables, which is what cable providers use in your house, can carry a lot of bandwidth and are able to carry TV and Internet. So you can easily split the signal for both purposes. A cable splitter will allow you to send the same signal to several devices.
One may also ask, can I split cable signal? Splitting your cable signal can result in the loss of picture quality. You can buy signal amplifiers form most audio/visual stores to improve your viewing experience if you notice a marked drop in picture quality after splitting your signal.
Similarly, can I split cable before modem?
Welcome to Broadband Reports! said, your cable modem should be off the *first* 2-way splitter on the line that comes into your house. One side goes directly to the cable modem and the other side drives the TV's. Each splitter you run between the drop and your cable modem will cut the signal by at least 3.5db.
Does a modem affect cable TV?
Also, Cable modems, Digital Phone, and cable tv, and run on different frequency's so they do not interfere w/ each other. You can rest assure your cable modem will not affect your television. As stated above, each of the devices run on a different set of frequencies and theoretically should not affect each other.
