yep I did all of that and I don't have a router closed out all of my programs that might be using bandwith such as Skype im cloud storage programs

I will either go back to 100 megs down or either leave time warner all together. and now there attitude is UPTO 300 megs!! I had better service when I had the 100 meg plan than with this one

I do downloading like 20 and 40 gig games but that's it that's where the speed would come in..

And mike is right motorola is now arris. I am wondering if it's taking a while for the modem to provision itself through the system
wth?

Twice a day?!?! That's borderline obsessive, my friend.

Cable Internet has ALWAYS been UPTO. That old 100 package you had? It was UPTO also.

Depending on my usage I run Ccleaner once a day or once every two days. Keeps the crap out.

going with a local company in my area and dumping TWC!! since I will be getting faster speeds and there's NO sharing of bandwith from house to house. 10 megs all day is really not acceptable for an upto 300 meg plan

I telecommute, so I have a play computer on (this one), so it has multiple screens open and no matter what, popups are the norm no matter what is loaded. So this computer gets it done at least twice a day. My work related computers, get it at least once a day. At the EOD, haven't has a virus or malware issue in more than a decade. As to the other devices around the house, none of them have had a issue either. Also each computer gets a full deep scan once a week.

It's not sharing form house to house, its traffic on the line that connects you to the master server. No one has a direct connection to the master server.
