Because you only hook up what you have to, to avoid signal loss. If you're serious about getting HD to all your jacks, you should probably look into getting a powered splitter. Otherwise, you just want a small passive splitter in a good MHz range. Over 2k was bare minimum last time I checked. I have internet cable and I want it as clean as possible, so I ...

Before you ground large metal structures on your roof to Earth, consider not just code, but consider why lightning happens. Electrical potential develops between the sky and the ground, and it will find the easiest path it can to discharge, even if that means breaking down hundreds of feet of air into plasma! If you are putting a large surface area on your ...

My guess would be that each room had coax wires routed to a common panel, and that there are wall plates in each room, or possibly that the wire was left in the wall. Coax cable is cheap, and if your house was recently built, this is a definite possibility. My other guess is that one of your two connected wires is your outside cable and the other is the ...

There's a decent probability that this won't work due to voltage drop from the power adapter, and not through interference: Voltage Drop Calculator A 15m run using 22AWG wires yields a voltage of 8 at the range extender. This may or may not be sufficient to power the extender. Power over Ethernet devices typically use 48v to minimize the voltage drop. ...

You can run a cable next to your CAT cable. You just cant really use the twisted pairs inside the cat cable, unless you are using PoE devices, which deal with the interfierence. The problem is that the twisted pairs cause an electromagnetic field in the cable which is NOT part of the cable causing issues. Running low voltage, even high voltage with a ...

That won't cause any problems, but I would consider a PoE Wireless Access Point rather than a range extender. All range extenders cut your throughput in half and significantly increase latency.
