If you have more than 15db, it can cause interference and corrupted data, which will hurt your performance.
If you have less than -15db, you have a very weak signal. Make sure your splitters are configured properly for cable modems, or if you are on a loop system, consider running a new line for the cable modem or moving the cable modem to a better location.
