We have been using the antenna for TV viewing since we bought our 2015 Forest River Sierra 371 REBH. We just got cable Internet and TV and have started hooking it up. There seems to be an issue with the signal though to two of the three rooms.
The modem/router only works when hooked up in the bedroom. It does not work when hooked up in the living room or bunk room.
The same goes for the television. I cannot get a cable signal to the cable box in either of the other rooms. Why is this?
There is an antenna booster button in the bedroom which I know should be off when using cable instead of the antenna. It is off right now and that is the reason I am able to get a signal in the bedroom.
I would really appreciate anyone's help getting the cable signal to work in the bunk and living room. Thank you in advance!
My guess is the signal loss at each splitter exceeds that which is needed by your modem.
Does your wall plate have a "sat" connection?
If so, I suggest you plug the park cable into the SAT connector on the outside wall and attach a high speed splitter at the SAT connection in the bedroom.
Then you can run one leg of the splitter to the modem and the other to the input for the cable on the wall plate. Use a modification to the plans for doing something similar for a satellite receiver I have attached.
