I have been having problems with my cable modem. I split the line where it comes in the house. One leg to my modem, the other to the TV.
My internet kept dropping signal. I was sure to get a splitter that provided a direct pass-thru to 7dB on both outputs.
There is a three way splitter on the line coming in from you pole. It has output 7dB, 7dB, and 3.5dB.
Anyway, the cable guy came out and switched the hookup on the three-way splitter. He took the line that goes to my cable modem and TV off of a 7dB terminal and out it on the 3.5dB terminal. All is well now.
how is this possible?
