I'm not super tech savvy and wanted to ask for some advice on a seemingly simple issue.
I'm moving to an upstairs apartment in our house next month and we only have one cable wire running upstairs from the Verizon FiOS (optical) box in our basement. I need to to utilize a splitter to branch the signal from the main cable wire upstairs into 3 separate connections, two cable wires of which will run off the splitter to TV's, and one of which will go to our wireless internet modem located on the same floor.
What kind of of splitter should I look for and what Cat. cable wire do I need? I'm not well versed in the differences between the various types (5 and 6?). The splitter I'm hoping to pick up at a Radioshack but I'm not sure where to look for the various length cable wire.
Yes it is.. I may have made a typo above, I didn't mean to use the term "cat", referring to ethernet cables.. I meant to refer to the various RG ratings... Do I need RG6? I haven't purchased coax cable in ages.
Mikey Mike brought up a good point as well, a cable box will greatly help you.
I have cable boxes... Thanks for checking...
Well thanks for your help guys... I'm going to get the the cable splitter and RG6 cable wires on monoprice.com for dirt cheap... This should be fairly simple to do, hardest part will be running the cable wires cleanly...
