Need help with Internet Cable (signal too strong)

I recently added a signal amplifyer to boost cable signal to TVs throughout the house. Worked great; consequently, however, the signal now appears too high for the Cable modem and the modem crashes about once per day. Is there any way to maintain the boosted signal for TVs, but filter signal strength for Modem? Thanks....

Put a two way splitter on your incoming cable, feed the modem from one leg and the amp to the TVs from the other.

Welcome to the forums.

toolmon suggested what I would do too.

In order to use an amplifier in a system that has a modem it has to be dual directional. Many amplifiers just boost incoming signals. If the modem couldn't transmit back thru it reliably then that would cause a connection issue.
