      Answer

      1st if ain't broke don't fix it. What you want is a 5way to be proper. You lose signal with every split so split a split give much weaker signal on the secondary splitter. With what you have place the cable modem and what I am guessing is your longest run on the the primary splitter. You modem need a strong signal and the long run needs a strong signal for distance. Then put the 3 short runs on the secondary splitter. That will give you optimum signal to all devices with the set up you currently have

        Answer

        The fewer connectors and splitters in-line the better. Think where your "home-run" drop is (back of cable box or internet box usually), try to run that with no or one split or connector. Split the rest off a single splitter if possible. 120' is nothing if you've got good cables (If it's less than 3 years old to pick a number you should be OK).

          not recommended for outdoors as they don't have sleeves over the connections. you can find splitters for outdoor use.

              Every splitter will lose some decibel with every split. I chose to use a powered booster at the t.v.'s and it solved the glitches. The modem is not harmed and so far worked great. I use one 10 decibel boost at each smart t.v.
