Can I connect the Internet router to the TV box ... ?

OK,

 

Just got FIOS, and the Verizon tech installed:

 

  • TV box near the TV downstairs (good!),
  • WiFi router (Westell A90-xxx) upstairs by the primary computer in the house (also good!). 

 

But, we are in the process of moving the computer desk downstairs near the TV, and I would like to also move the Westell router down there as well. Problem is, there is only one cable connection downstairs. I am trying to figure out if there is some say to "daisy chain" the Westell router to the TV box, or do I need to go to Radio Shack and get some kind of coax cable splitter?

 

Appreciate any help.

 

Jake

You will need a splitter

Another option is to run your computer wirelessly.  If you have a wireless adapter in the computer you can connect to your network wireless.  I did this for my daughter and it is working fine.
