I have cablevision/optimum online. Over the weekend, the tech was out for a cable modem issue. While he was here, I had him install the Moca POE filter outside the house before the 3-way splitter into the house. The tech waited around to see that the Tivo and internet worked. However, I forgot to check my VPN access to work Do you think the filter I have is somewhat of a dud? The cable guy that came out 2 weeks ago tested it first and told me it would block everything so he didn't install it. So he may be partially right, in that it is blocking more than it should. I had posted on this forum and someone suggested to just "test" putting the filter just before the Tivo and see what happens. Since that worked, I had the tech install it this time and told him I had just "tested" it before he came. Help please! I need to get my VPN working. I don't have any tools so I can't easily take that filter on/off.
