The problem could also be and dont take it personal cause idk what type of fittings and splitters you consider good quality. But it could be your handy work.
Heres what you do..go pick up your phone call comcast and schedule for a tech to come out and check the drop aswell as your handy work to see if they are actually good compression fittings aswell as 1ghz splitters.
To everyone who trys to be a DIY thats cool and all but I can honestly tell you out of the number of people that try and do things on their own very..and i mean very few actually succeed. Most of the time making more work for the tech. Just call your office and get a tech out it will prolly save you time in the end anyway. considering you prolly spent most of a day trying to fix it yourself and in the end its still doing the same thing..so save yourself the trouble next time
Well considering that the splitters were provided by comcast, I would hope that they are good quality. And as far as my handiwork with stripping/crimping cable ends... I have the proper tools (a coax stripper and a properly sized crimper for the cable ends I use). And while RF is not my forte, I am am EE, so I think I know a bit about the importance of proper technique and equipment when it comes to doing electrical/electronics work.
