regardless of what att tech tell you it appears that the uverse router does not like long runs of coax cable...i cannot attest to cat5, however try this: WHILE you are experiencing the crappy signal, IF YOU HAVE A SPLITTER, disconnect, one at a time, one of the outgoing lines. if the signal resumes that is your offending cable. leave it disconnected and you will have no problems...What to do about it? I havent figured that out yet...maybe cat5 OR what would be logical is an in line signal amplifier...idk if they have one yet or not...hope this helps.
Leaving an unterminated port on a splitter may cause an issue. Do this only if you have an 75 ohm terminator to replace the removed cable with.
