I am seeking trying to determine if cable broadband might work for me. Right now I have Qwest DSL but the connection is not very fast. I live in an apartment and have cable TV already in the living room, so I have a cable outlet in the living room. The problem is I have a desktop computer in the master bedroom and that room does not have a cable outlet, and the cable company says they won't install an outlet in the master bedroom. I'm wondering if I can use the cable outlet in the living room, with a splitter for the TV as well, and just use wireless throughout the apartment without having any computer directly connected to the internet cable. In other words, can I use a router for wireless connected to the cable outlet in the living room and just use my computers with wireless connections, or must the computer in the living room be connected direct to the cable internet connection? I'd like to be able to make a completely wireless connection and have the benefit of the faster cable internet connection, but not if the Ethernet cable must be connected to one of the computers. I hope I am making myself clear. Any help you can provide will be much appreciated. Thank you.
