My Current Signal Levels
I've read a few discussions on here where people have issues with signals when the temperature goes up in the summer.
However, I believe I have the opposite problem.
The pictures above show the current temperature, as well as my current signal / power levels.
Last week, it got down to around 8 degrees F. What I would notice is that when I was using Skype to make voice calls, I could not hear the person on the other end, or the call would drop.
When that was going on, I would take a look at my signal / power levels. For the downstream power, they would be in the range of 9.xx dBmV all the way up to 11.xx dBmV.
So, my question is, what options do I have to try to fix this issue?
As far as the wiring goes, my Cable Modem is plugged into a coax line that runs around my room, through the wall, and then outside. From there, it continues to the back of the house into a 3-way splitter. That is one solid line. There are no other splitters or couplers in it between the cable modem and the 3-way splitter.
From that point, the line runs up the side of the house, then across the yard to the pole at the street.
The other 2 legs go to different rooms in the house and are setup the same way and connect directly into Cable TV Set Top Boxes.
