2-way splitters, Higher Better Connection??

Recommended Posts

Most CATV systems bandwidth is from 54MHz up to 750MHz, and some 860MHz.

The upstream is from 5 to 42MHz, or so.

So therefore a 900MHz splitter is just fine.

Do either of you have Motorola modems?

If so, type 192.168.100.1 in the address bar, and hit the signal tab.

Copy and paste the info from that page and re-post here. It will tell us exactly what the downstream and upstream frequencies are that your ISP is using.

And all your levels look pretty good.

Your downstream frequency is 693.00 MHz, well below the 1 GHz rating of that splitter.

9 dB is approaching the high end on receive levels, but we usually don't see any problems until it hits 14-15dB.

my power level is -10dBmV downstream, is that bad?

Quite of a few modems can have power levels between +15dBmV and -15DbMV, so as long as you are having no speed problems you should be fine. Just make sure it stays within that threshhold.
