Have Cable TV connected to wall outlet. Will need to connect Modem for Internet.
I have Spectrum Cable TV box connected to my apt wall outlet using a coax cable.
Will be recieving Internet service from Spectrum in about a month.
Will rent TWC Modem and buy AsusRt-Ac66u_B1 router for a self-install Internet & wifi.
From reading the Forum, It appears I will need a Splitter to connect both TV box(receiver) and Modem.
On Spectrum tech support page they write: “A splitter weakens the signal level. This can cause intermittent loss of service or, in rare cases, complete service failure.
We recommend connecting your modem or Spectrum Receiver directly to a wall outlet rather than using a splitter. “
Does Spectrum self-installation kit provide the coax spltter & coax cables for their Modem setup?
If Spectrum suggest not using a splitter (stated above) what other alternatives do I have for setup?
How are other members signal connecting the splitter with Cable TV and Modem?
