Cable Modem recommendations

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for feedback and/or suggestions on purchasing a good quality cable modem for my home network. I currently have a rental unit from Comcast which occasionally needs to be reset one or twice a month. Not only would I prefer to own my own hardware, but I'd like something reliable and hardworking. Any recommendations be would fantastic.

Most any cable Modem Except the Linksys one would Do. The Motorola SB5120 SURFboard is one of the more Popular ones.

I like my D-Link DCM-202. It's DOCSIS 2.0 compatible, so it'll work with commucast's 'power boost' or whatever they call it. It's cheap... I would highly recommend owning versus renting.

Definitely call Comcast and see what models of modems they will support. Just because it is DOCSIS compliant doesn't meant they will support a config file for it.

 

I've always had very good luck with the Motorola Surfboard modems. Check around on Ebay once you find one Comcast supports. I bought mine for $10

Actually, yes it does. DOCSIS is a standard. All cable operators support it. Now, whether they support DOCSIS 2.0 doesn't mean anything, they may only support 1.0. But DOCSIS is a standard, see Here
