What is the typical DB loss for a 3 way splitter?

Hence the reason why you will find a 3 way splitter that has 1 -3.5db output and 2 -7db outputs. It works like this: It doesn’t matter if the signal is split in the same splitter, or among different splitters. For every split, you will lose -3.5db every split.

How many Ethernet switches can be daisy chained?

Do Ethernet couplers slow down speed?

Distinguished. The Ethernet spec says cable runs of 100 meters is minimum to be IEEE compliant so 90 feet is no problem unless the coupler is bad. The the temperature changes in your attic will change the attenuation in the wire but with only 90 feet total run, you should have plenty of extra margin and will be okay.
