How far does it have to run to be too far? Ive had this since 2006 but after reading that the longer the cable the worse it can be I`m kinda worried.
I know its not a good pic, (maybe 50ft?) But the Drop runs from that power line and into a grounded coupler thats on the side of the house and then another maybe 30-40 foot up to go into the house (upstairs) and Directly into the cable modem. is that good or way to far?
Thanks! Does a Coupler hurt anything? there is one outside that is grounded that connected the wire coming from the power line inside, and then another one inside connecting to a 6 foot coaxial line as I needed to extend it.
Cable Company is coming out tommrow as I asked if they could just cut me some new Coax but not sure if they will
Technically, the coupler does introduce a very small amount of signal loss in the line, but nothing that you would need to be concerned about. I once saw a contractor do a 150' run with barrels and 6 foot pre made jumpers.
The drop to your house is extremely short. Most are much longer.
