    Between your router and the coax cable. You forgot to give the brand and model of your router.

    I am assuming that you have a separate router because you said, "the router detects the internet connection." But if you have a modem/router combo, just tell us about that. :)

    On the bottom of the devices, there is normally a label with the model number. Exact model numbers are essential to understanding the issues.
