Re: Two cable modem connections one coax run

Cable's a shared medium anyways... Basically, every modem on the node / segement is on a common cable. There's no difference between the modems being side by side in the same room, or one modem in your house, another in your neighbors.

As long as the signal is strong enough, there's no issues having two (or more) modems on the same drop.

This has been my experience. The tap that everyone in your neighborhood is connected to is pretty much nothing more involved than a splitter.
