I am hoping the folks here can help me. I am switching over to AT&T Uverse this week. My neighbor currently has it and loves it, and quite frankly, I am sick and tired of dealing with Time Warner over them having a "lost" payment and despite providing a cancelled check and bank statement showing it cleared, they are sticking with the story it was never paid.
My question is that I live in a rented townhouse and we are not allowed to drill through walls. The set up for the building is one phone jack and one cable jack in the living room area and then one phone jack in the den area (where my computer is currently located). Just kind of interested in how the RG would be hooked up since I don't want cables running all over the apartment.

Telephone drop cable terminates on NID on side of bldg.
Enters bldg on existing coax.
Existing coax splitter is replace with diplexer.
RG is placed in den & connected to coax.
Feeds computer & TV cat5.
LIving room coax is connected to diplexer.

Another possibliity would be that the U-verse would be fed in using your phone line from the NID and the RG connected to the phone jack in either room. If the RG is placed in the LR, then you can connect the DVR to the RG directly using Cat 5e or coax, but your computer would need to go wireless to the RG. If the RG is placed in your office, then you'd have to get creative about wiring up your TV.
