RG6 cable should be fine. Your installation should include a ground block (near your electrical panel or some other grounded place) and than a splitter to your modem and TVs. The modem should be the first and only thing on it's leg of the splitter and the TVs on the remaining 1 or more legs. Get a splitter that can handle all your rooms - up to 7 with an 1:8 splitter (hopefully they all home run to the same point of origin outside).

I just signed up for ADELPHIA cable internet. I have been on dialup, new to cable. I want to purchase my own modem rather than rent. I read good reviews on the Motorola SURFboard 5100. Do you know if it's compatible with ADELPHIA? If not, give me several good selections for modem selection. Also, I'm running a dedicated coax cable from outside to my PC. Is the RJ6 cable OK to use? Best Buy directed me that way. Thanks for any impute.
