    I got 2 cable splitters here. Ones a 2-way and the otehr is a 3-way

    On the 2-way, both outgoing jacks say "-3.5db" for each one.

    On the 3-way, 2 of the 3 outgoing jacks say "-7db" for each and the one remaining says "-3.5db".

    My question is what do these numbers represent and should I worry about them when connecting my internet and other cable related things.

    Right now I'm using the two way and only one of it is connected, and thats to my modem, and I'm currently getting 6.1 mb's.

    Those numbers represent the amount of signal loss when connected to that leg of the splitter. If you do use the 3 way, make sure you use the -3.5db for the cable modem.
