Drop Amplifier

In a spare bedroom in my home I have a AC adapter (model CDS007-W150U)  plugged into a power strip with a cable connection from the wall. It has a warning to not disconnet or Broadband service will be lost. (That does happen, I tried it) I have a utility cabinet where the cable comes in and is split to the different rooms.  Is it related to that spitter? Why is the adapter it in a random room? Does this device affect my internet speeds? This is Xfinity installed equipment.

Re: Drop Amplifier

What’s the model of the amplifier? It’s not random it sounds like the tech installed the amp in a room not being used and is being remote powered by coax, in a room where you don’t have a cable box or modem. It doesn’t negatively affect your internet speeds. Wherever the amp is located, there is most likely no power close by, that’s why it’s plugged in where it is.

Re: Drop Amplifier

Commscope (CSAPAE615V500) I understand what you saying. Thanks.

For what it's worth - I worked out a way to directly plug in the power supply to the household splitter and testing before at 450 jumped to 600 after. May not be related, but I'll take it.
