Regardless of whether they can pick up on the fact from your MAC address or not, don't bring up the words "docsis 3" or "bonded channel"
unless you are supposed too have that 30+ Mb (down)


Reference info re DOCSIS
[wikipedia.org]


It doesn't work with Time Warner. I tried to have it activate twice. Both times I was told they were receiving errors.

How does it compare to Motorola modem? I have Comcast rental right now, but trying to decide if the Motorola SB 6120 is better

Excellent price especially as seeing as comcast pushed an update [comcast.com] on my current DOCSIS 3.0 device(SBG 6580) which disables its ability to act as a stupid bridge like this device.

Buying this and putting mine on ebay!

With coupon and tax it comes to $50.70 for me thanks person with coupon code, repped.

Does anyone know if Docsis 3.0 is required for comcast service? I've still got an old 2.0 Ambit modem that I'd like to use if possible. I'll be getting 30 meg service. Can 2.0 even handle that? I have an installer coming out saturday to run wires in my attic.

I have a linksys DOCSIS 2.0 modem working with comcast right now, i am currently getting 25mb down and 4mb up so you should be fine. I was told if i wanted to upgrade to blast (50mb down) i would need a DOCSIS 3.0 modem to handle the higher bandwidth.

I have one of these running on Comcast right now and have had zero issues with it. Bought it through the same refurb deal a couple months ago. These originally had major issues staying connected but Comcast pushed through a firmware update for them that took care of that.

One amazon reviewer [amazon.com] says that this worked on Time Warner Cable:
Quote :
This is great product. Runs too fast. My bandwith was 20/1.5 with my older modem - cisco 2100, with cisco 3008 now I get 40+, 2 times more than I suppose to. Althought, on the box it says Comcast only, but I have Time Warner, and it runs great. Installation took only 5 minutes.

I bought this few months back when it was just under $40, and ended up receiving a brand new unit. It's been working great!

It seems this modem has a history of dropping connection. The amazon top comment and third comment [amazon.com] is neither company will support with the new firmware and will drop connections routinely on comcast connection. I would be wary of buying it

Bought it, been getting those calls from comcast because they upgraded our area so i've been yearning for that 50Mbps +

Lets hope theres no issues and i can retire my reliable docsis 2.0 surfboard

They released an updated firmware that corrected that issue

I got this last go around. I did have reboot issues and drops, even with the newest available firmware. did some searching and found some useful info. Seems the cisco is very sensitive to too much signal strength downstream and maybe other factors such as noise etc. Older coax cabling / bent cabling will not help. I moved to a newly installed jack, put on a coax surge protector and has been fine since. Just trying to save others time who maybe have this or will buy it. in short, while it was on crappy old wiring with too much noise it would barely connect, but on new quad shield with attenuator ( i think splitters do the same thing) it was fine.
