Slow Dl speed with Wide Open West Cable


Recommended Posts


Sorry if this is posted in the wrong section but heres my problem.  For about the past 2-3 months I have had issues with my cable internet going out.  The light for cable on the modem would go out and start a slow blinking endless loop.  I recently figured out that it can not be just WOW it was too often and found out they were using a 2way splitter for my tv and the cable.  I thought what the heck maybe its going bad and once I plugged the cable line directly into the wall then the light came back on woo hoo, I thought I fixed it but now my speeds are nothing I have tried many of the tweaking guides and software programs.  I have also tried different cables / resetting everything and was wondering if anyone has had the same problem or knows a fix or where I should try and start looking for more problems.

mikegreen, Welcome to the forum. The splitter going to the TV & Internet are two different frequency's. I can't remember the numbers right now but you can call your cable company and find out which is which. I would say you are having problem that your ISP should check out for you.

Yep they came out and replaced the drop line and the tech said the previous guy had the splitters wrong so back to this :)
