Cable Modems - Part 1 of 3
You might think you could save money by installing your own cable splitter (to share your cable Internet access with another room in your house) instead of having your cable service company do it. Be careful. Cable modems are very sensitive to decreases in signal strength, and you will be decreasing the signal by splitting it. Cable technicians have special measuring equipment and can adjust the signal strength of the service in your house. Unless you have the experience and the equipment, it's best to let the experts handle extending your cable service to additional rooms.
