Which one is correct to use to connect my cable tv and computer modem? I have a -6db tap right now.(it says one way digital coupler on it) That ( -6db )leg is connected to the tv. My tv signal seems to pause a lot like buffering. Should the -6db leg be going to the modem instead or would a splitter be best. I only have 1 tv and 1 modem. Thanks..
Solved! Go to Solution.

Depends on what power levels you currently have to the modem now. What do they look like ? Try getting them here; http://192.168.100.1
Please post the *Downstream Power Level*, the *Upstream Power Level*, and the *SNR* (Signal to Noise Ratio) numbers.
Typically the minus 6 dB tap should go to a T.V. because a modem typically needs a better connection. Are you having any internet modem issues ? You may need to use a simple two way splitter.

Here are the power levels:
|Frequency||651000000 Hz Locked|
|Signal to Noise Ratio||37 dB|
|Power Level||-5 dBmV |
|Frequency||34800000 Hz Ranged|
No internet connection problems at the time.

Can't hurt to try switching them and see what happens, you could always put it back the way it was. It probably should be kept the way it is because you are already having T.V. issues and because you really don't want to short change the modem either or you may begin to have internet connectivity issues. You should probably call in and report the T.V. issue and have a tech come out and have a look.
