Hi. My downstream signals are a bit on the low side I feel. I use a 2-way splitter outside and no splitter inside to the modem. Today, I decided I would get a TV for my room again (where modem is), so added a 2-way splitter for that and downstream signals dropped even more obviously (upstream signals went up). I started to notice connection problems. So, I'm back to the modem only. Is there a way to adjust these at all? I tried both locations coming off the splitter inside and also different splitters outside, but the signals still stay around the same level, -6 or -7 for downstream. I attached my current signal levels. I have the SB6183.
Thanks, EG. I guess I could just run a line throughout the house for the TV only then my modem would stay as it is now. Do you know if this is something that can be fixed properly outside somewhere, like maybe on the pole?
Also, EG, can you tell me which one you prefer between these two:
If I'm to understand correctly, my downstream will go up about 11 or so and my upstream would go down about 4 or so?
