    That's how mine is split. Line comes into the house and I've put a 4-way 5-1000 splitter in which feeds the router and my boxes.

    I only know that the 5-1000 one works. I got the info on here somewhere, probably dsayers2014's cable thread.
    Not sure if the sat ones would work or not, they seem to be advertised separately.

    Forgive my ignorance as I am new to this but when I split my cable connection the speed dropped from 200meg to around 20meg, hard connection. I was using a 2 way splitter though 5-2450mhz. Is this the reason why and would a 5-1000mhz result in less of a drop?

    I'm not. I tried an ebay 5-2450 and was wondering if i purchased a 5-1000 it would yield better results as in my d/l speed. It drops from 200meg to about 20 on the 5-2450 splitter, so thats no good lol.
