Cable question - direct or not connection for modem

So I have a question. Since I left rogers and went with
I have disconnected the cable jacks at my network work panel that feeds the cable outlets in the house.
What I did was directly connect the outside / street feed to my modem, but I installed a -3db filter to the line. Should I or can do with out the filter? My concern is firing my cable modem if signal is too strong with out it. The manual of the Thomson 476 mentions a splitter but I guess they saying that for safety?

Any advise or ideas. Thanks in advance. :-)
