Hi - I've got Comcast for my broadband provider.
The cable run comes into a splitter: one side goes to my only cable-active tv, the other to my modem.
I'm 'moving' in the next few weeks down the hall.
So, I plan on putting in a longer coax run another 30ft or so to the back bedroom.
I'll probably either bring up the one coax and split it out of the jack, or install two jacks (with the 2nd splitter underneath the house).
I'll have the modem and router (linksys wireless) in the bedroom and will have the ethernet for my pc simply connect there, but I'm thinking of having the other node (my wife's pc left behind in the original room) connect through a cat5 jack which would connect back to the study to another cat5 jack.
So, a few Qs....
1) any problem with extending the coax cable and splitting it again? I don't want to see any drop in speed if possible.
2) Any problem with the ethernet plan?
3) Would I be better off leaving the modem/router in the study and running an ethernet the same way back to the bedroom?
In the study, there will only be my wife's pc.
In the bedroom (aka my new office) I will have my wired PC and an occasional wired/wireless laptop - connecting over the network for an occasional print job to my wife's locally attached printer.
Thanx for looking. :^)
