There is an encryption key setting available, at least on Tivo. Having never used an adapter, I assume they support it as well as part of the Moca standard, but I'm not sure. if it works like encryption normally does, enabling it will cost you some speed with the overhead. I have numbers to back this up, so it might only be 1% or it might be substantial... <shrug>
If you cant get the filter on your end of the wire, maybe the next time you see a comcast truck at your building you can get the filter installed at the other end of your wire at their distribution point.
There are actually three benefits to have the filter...
1. keeps your signal from leaving your house (security).
2. Keeps neighbors Moca signals from coming into your apt. (reliability/speed)
3. Reduces the length of wiring that the moca adapters are trying to send their signaling down, improving quality. (again speed/reliability)
