You do not need a splitter for the situation you describe. You need a Diplexer. it combines 2 different signals (with different frequencies) onto one cable, then breaks them up back into two outputs again.

In theory it should work, however I am not entirely sure what frequency range is used for cable modem, its definitely different than that of cable tv so i am unsure if a diplexer rated for Cable TV will pass thru the cable modem frequencies.

How challenging would it be to run 2 separate wires, one from the satellite dish, and one from the Rogers NID to your basement? Most of the time its very easy to do esp in older homes, but yeah if you absolutely cant, then yes you can consider a diplexer, you would need 2 of them, one to combine the signals onto one wire, and another one to break out the signals from one wire back to two.
