Do you need a DOCSIS 3.0 modem? If not, and you don't have Comcast digital voice, I've had good results with the Motorola Surfboard."In any case, I hate everything that merely instructs me without augmenting or directly invigorating my activity" - Goethe

Ya I was looking at the surfbds just wondering how good of one I need. I tested the up and download speeds and got 4.39 and 20.08. I assume those vary.

The Comcast installer told me they have less trouble with the surfboards than anything else. Mine is rock solid.

Craigslist. Whatever is cheap. I got some generic brand 2 years ago and it's never blinked on Comcast or RCN.
At one point I went to BestBuy and tried a whole slew of 'em, including the Motorola Surfboard. No measurable difference.
The bottleneck is not the modem...Are we there yet?
