Does a double jack extension coord affect my internet speed?

Message 1 of 4

I used to have time warner cable with 25mbps, and today I switched to verizon fios also with 25mbps.

My internet works fine,and  I am pretty sure I didn't connect any of my phone filters to the modem.

I used to be able to watch HD videos on youtube but now it takes forever for them to stream.

My modem is connected to a grey extension cable(it came with the box) and that is connected to a 50 ft double jack extension coord which is then connected to a 3-jack wall adapter.

The other 2 jacks are for 2 filters for my phones.

 

Is it because of the double jack extension coord? Should I just buy an extension coord with no jacks?

Or is it because it is just day 1.

 

I can post images , if it ain't clear enough.

Fios doesn't use a modem it uses a router. None of the cords are grey or come with filters. Sounds like you are talking about DSL if that is so post your question there.

If it's DSL as suggested by your post and by Telco Guru, then yes the double jack ext can affect your speed, and the 50 feet of wire can also.

We haven't heard back from you. Are you talking about fios VDSL or plain DSL service?
