House Amp Box

Hi, I have a Netgear Nighthawk Cable Modem/Router. I have it connected into the coax cable outlet in the wall. The Coax cable from the wall then directly runs into the house amp box (Model PPC 9-point Entry Series) located outside. Is it okay that the coax cable connects to the Passive Output Voice Modem connector to receive internet? Or is it ideal that the coax cable connects to a regular Output Connector in the House Amp box?

It depends. Do you also have their telephone / voice service ?

No I do not have Xfinity voice/telephone service. I experimented and connected the coax to the Passive Output Voice Modem connector and there seems to be no issues. Internet is working. I read that if not using voice modem for voice/telephone that it can be used for data services. Any issues that may arise in the future because of this?

It depends on what the signal strength / connection quality is in the first place. You may or may not need any amplification at all. The bottom line is if you actually have connectivity problems or not. "If it ain't broke, then there's no need to fix it".
