If it were me, I think I'd put a splitter before the amp and put the
cable modem on one leg of the splitter. This is assuming the 3 dB loss
of the splitter isn't too much for the modem, but it usually isn't.
In general, when I had a cable modem, I tried to put it on the first
split. e.g., if I had to go to three TVs, I'd use a two-way splitter
with the modem on one leg, then put a three-way splitter on the other
leg for the TVs. TVs are usually less picky about signal loss than modems.
