To be honest, it probably will be fine, but every splitter that's been used at my home has caused some HD channels to have video/audio issues or loose the channel completely. Its not across the board, just some channels. Recently TW added an amplifier. I have 7 cable outlets in my house, so I'm sure that has a lot to do with it.

i was only asking b/c i was reading another thread and people were saying it has to be bi-directional. i couldn't figure out if this one is bi-directional...it didn't say it anywhere. are all splitters now adays bidirectional?

I think that'll be fine. The thing to consider is the frequency range it can handle. You need a splitter that can handle up to 1 GHz. This one goes to 2.3GHz, so I think it's ok. Not sure what bidirectional means, exactly. But I think this will work.

Bidirectional means that the signal can go both directions, both from the single "input" line to each of the "outputs," and from each of the "outputs" back to the "input." Since the STB, router, etc. all receive data packets from the "network" and send data packets back to the "network" a bidirectional splitter is required. Unidirectional splitters are designed to only provide a path from the input to the outputs as the signal splitting and line impedence matching is implemented in such a manner that restricts the reverse direction.

Hey Guys, This is Anup here.
I have coaxial cable running through my house, But I want to connect Wi-Fi router to the internet over coaxial cable. The router has just Cat 5 cable port ( I dont know what the port is called). So I am looking for some good and cheap solution which can convert coaxial cable to Cat 5 cable.
I would have no problems making Cat5 cable.

P.S. The wireless router does not contain port for coaxial cable, so only CaT 5 cable can be connected to it.
P.S. The coaxial port is a female port ( I think that is the way ports are).

please please guys recommend any solution to this problem.

Many Thanks.
