  1. I have just recently had comcast install there filter at my house. My comcast worked fine until then. Now it works sometimes and then sometimes it stops. Nothing has changed on the computers or router. When I do plug it straight in to the modem it dosen't works as well, and like I said it happens every now and then.

    Remove the filter? Or complain to Comcast and ask them to replace it.

    for coaxial cables, there are several variations of splitters (ie one in, many out)
    and they are rated at XXX.xx mhz. Here in the USA, you can go to Radio Shack
    and buy the highest rated spliters and the should be fine.

    I had to upgrade mine, even if it was a seemingly trivial change,
    eg 900 mhz to 120.2 mhz (relative numbers, not precise for purchasing).
