Panoramic WiFi Hookup

I picked up my new equipment, not knowing that it has to be hooked into a coax outlet.

The only coax are in the Livingroom & 3 bedrooms.  They all have the cable hooked up there.

I’m in a rental so I have to deal with what’s here.

 Would a coax splitter work in the living room or do I cut my losses and turn in the equipment?

  • Hi Kim B, try a splitter and see if you are able to get the modem to initialize. I recommend keeping a spare splitter on hand just in case. Also, you may have already considered this, but in case you haven't, I recommend getting a good power strip rated for electronics, to help protect the modem from power surges.

    Thank you,
