Removing Internet Cable Filter
Hey, just wondering if anyone knows how to remove the filter from a Coaxial internet cable. Basically, it's at the end of the cable, just before it enters the modem. Damn thing is preventing me from trying out my new TV tuner.
Any help? :?
A sharp knife of some sort. That will take it off.
It's made of metal...unless you mean cutting the cable and re-installing the metal end. I'm considering doing that...going out to buy the supplies today.
Can you believe the bastards ar Rogers Cable (Canadian) won't even come-over to check it out. Pay for both services, and work for them, and they still treat you like trash (after 5 call transfers and 1 hour of wasted time).
Moral? Do your own dirty work 'cause no-one's gonna help.

i have a cable modem and tv tuner card in the same room right next to each other, and i just ended up leaving the line going into the modem alone and putting a splitter on one of the regular cable lines and running that to the tuner card
That's what I intended to do. However, the nearest seperate cable is about 10 meters away in another room. If anything, I'd have to run it outside but that involves drilling yet another hole through the wall in which the cable is located in.
Thanks for the help guys. I'll let ya know how it went.
