    Hey guys. There are two kinds I know of. One for tv cable and one for internet cable. As I show this picture, I need to know which cable I should connect for internet and tv. My internet router is cable plug in. There is no internet wire.


    Picture is way huge so I put spoiler to save your time for loading.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Why do I have a strong feeling in my gut that this thread will be entertaining?

    This is not for fun. Because next month, I will move out. So I need some help with it.

    I went to my room to make this diagram for you to help you:[​IMG]
    You have the item in my picture that shows the connected cables plugged in, and the cable for cable tv is connected to the cable box, and there is a cable on the cable box that connects to the tv. The internet cable is connected to the router, and the phone has a cable to connect the phone to a phone router. The side that has only one activates everything, and it's source is from outside.
    Hopefully, my setup info helped you.

    Under the trailer. I don't know why they do that. It should outside of trailer. Not under.

    They both use the same coax, it doesn't matter where you plug them in though you will most likely need a filter for your TV and phone, that is just a splitter to split the line in the pic.

    It can be in any order, the side with only one cable (bottom) was set by the provider's technician. It's source usually comes from a box your landlord set up and it connects the services.
