Both are well-rated, both are 16x4. You wouldn't notice any difference between the two in a double-blind test.

Simply put, if you're under 200mbps and you've got 8x4 or higher, you're fine. Higher number of channels can help during busy times, but aren't absolutely necessary unless your ISP has some special requirements.

PS: I do love netgear's recommendation chart, saying 8x4 is "recommended" for 0-10mbps, 16x4 for 10-49mbps, 24x8 for 50-99mbps, and 32x8 for 100+... totally ridiculous because even 8x4 can do 200mbps+ comfortably.

Speed wise, prob comparable. However, Netgear CM500 has a Broadcom chipset and Linksys CM3016 has Intel Puma 6 chip. The Intel chip is known to have latency issue - google it if you want to learn more. I'd go with CM500 for similar price range.

Good price, I got mine for $59 with a $10 coupon. $44 looks like a good price vs paying $11 a month

How does this compare to the Linksys CM3016 [amazon.com]? Available for $39.99 refurbished on Amazon.

Thanks for posting. I need a new modem by tomorrow and this one appears to be eligible for same-day shipping.

Should be fine.

It's a Modem, Router, Switch & Wireless Access Point all in one - so unless you want to wire some extra stuff up, you shouldn't need anything else.

I prefer to have them separate, but I'm hardly normal where technology is concerned. I've got enterprise level switching & standalone AP for my network.

Most of the issues with the Puma have been worked out. One more firmware coming through the ISP's should fully fix the problems.

Of course, some ISP's may not bother or will take forever to process the firmware update. Especially if its to a modem they don't sell/rent themselves. I'd stick with the Broadcom models for now. I have a 24 channel broadcom modem and the 32 channel Puma based SB6190. The 6190 was horrible with high latency bursts 6-9 months ago but they're uncommon and not quite as bad. The problem is that Intel put a single core atom cpu in the modem to perform all of the work and when it runs periodic maintenance chores it stops passing packets. Not too bright. A second core would have prevented the problems completely.

And I'll once again dispute the claim that 4x or 8x modems are "good enough". They are if you want to save $20 over a 5 year period and get variable download rates and ping times.

The ISP's aren't going to pay for and rent to you 16x and 24x if its unnecessary, nor would they have been actively swapping the 4x and 8x rental modems out of their systems. Nobody in Comcast or Charter management woke up 2 years ago and said "Hey, how can I spend a lot of money doing something that won't benefit us or our customers?!?"

Of course, if your line of thinking is "Comcast...man do they always go above and beyond to give me more than I need at a higher cost to them!", then you should get a head x-ray.

Moving into a new home and Comcast is the only provider around my area. Is this a good modem or should I wait until Black Friday/Holiday season. Moving in next month.

Thanks for the help in advance!
