We're moving our modem router from our bedroom to the office, but I have a TV connected already in the office. Wanted to know if I can use a splitter to connect the TV and modem router. Would it affect performance? We have the lower speed internet service.
Typically you should steer away from using splitters as Cox absolutely hates the use of splitters and if you have them and begin to have any sort of issues *be aware* they will begin blaming it on splitters which means YOU will be charged for their time and it will not be considered their problem so they will not pay for their time visiting your house. But for the most part splitters are fine and they really only cause problems on TV boxes and Modems because they can begin to lose packets in between the outside box and your house.
