Question about RCA DCM425 DIGITAL CABLE MODEM (RCADCM425)
Theoretically you can because the purpose your cable serves is a conduit for data transmissions. Just a few cautions here. Just as in any circuit, the more the wire is spliced,split, or anything that taps into it on its way . to the modem will add resistance to the line, thus it could degrade or "slow down" your signal. There is a splitter I know mediacom haves that will help with lessening this effect.

First you need to be more clear on what you are wanting to split, if you want to connect your tv to the Modem (for internet apps like netflix) or if you want to connect your tv to the coax cable line for basic cable tv channels. if it is for internet apps you need a router to "route" internet connections because your modem can only support 1 device at a time without a router. if you are you want to split the coax line you want to make sure you have enough signal to you modem. to check this 1. open you web browser 2. insert http://192.168.100.1/ into address bar and hit enter 3. click on "Diagnostic" if "Received Signal Strength:" is greater then -2 dBmV and your "Power Level:" is less than 50 dBmV you are safe to use a splitter and connect your tv. but please get a splitter and jumper from you local Mediacom office and don't buy them at radio shack or try to make them!
