Am i the only one who got one of these and Comcast said they wouldn't activate it because the mac address was already attached to an account? Ugh, Comcast. Ugh, Cisco for the customer service runaround.

not really Cisco's fault, Comcast is the one with an outdated MAC list. whoever returned that just had it sitting on their account, and got another one, i know you can have at least two modem MAC address on my account with Comcast. Sounds like you need to get past 1st tier support to someone who is more knowledgeable. Ask them the last time that MAC was active on their network. and explain the situation.

As a side note, i did activate modem on GF account on my Comcast account, and it worked, I used their walled garden online portal. basically just plug in and boot up the modem with a laptop plugged into the Ethernet port, should get a screen to log in with your account username and PW. give it a shot. as long as only active on one location at a time, should be ok, meaning not spoofed etc.

Has anyone successfully active it with Time Warner? I called tech support and was told they were not able to activate it. They were able to connect to it and read the model number.

Can anyone who activated with Comcast speak to the duration it took the modem to update itself and or connect? I activated this modem and it lights up but appears to have a problem. I had Comcast out to calibrate the line just to be sure after reading about the strength of (too much) signal issue. The modem just keeps repeating the boot sequence in a loop as if it's trying to update, however, 2 hours of this rebooting seems excessive. This outlet is currently provisioned for an Arris with telephony and split to a DTA. The tech said it "shouldn't" be an issue with signal strength at all and couldn't change the service (had to be done through call center). I'm wondering if it's worth it to attempt and have the telephony/preferred digital service changed/removed from the line before I assume the modem is broken and return it. Going this route would leave me hanging in the breeze if it is in fact the modem. Anyone with similar experience?

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.
What firmware update would that have been? The most recent one I am aware of is dated May 14, 2012, (I believe) and there are many, many folks who are having connection issues with it. Check out the link someone (sorry, forgot his name) posted to the Comcast support forums a few messages up. But I really, really hope you are right.

You have Comcast?

Did you have disconnect issues before you got the DPC3008?

How long have you had the DPC3008?

Can you tell us the Firmware Build Time for your DPC3008? (enter 192.168.100.1 into your browser address bar - the most recent update pushed by Comcast that I am aware of was last May 17)

There are many, many Comcast customers spread around the country who are having serious issues with disconnects, and not just with this modem. Visit Comcast support forums to see for yourself.

Thanks for any info you can provide. Smilie
