Thanks for the advice, but that sounds like more trouble than it's worth. I'll keep the Motorola as a backup in case I ever need it.

The problem is THE CABLE COMPANY I AM ON is not stable in levels!!! (modem kept locking up due to the extremes in signal to it)


I have a new one I could get activated but im sure they will try to give me BS about it... (Its a DOCSIS 2.0 modem I think) - It gave me FAST ENOUGH FOR ME speeds!
I had that Toshiba modem 12 years ago, it was great while it lasted, one of the early all in one devices. That is a DOCSIS 1.0 modem.

Good plan, Comcast took down one of my cable modems, luckily I had another one to connect to the internet and do online chat instead of having to call them.

It's fine for you, it's not fine for your ISP, which is what matters. Their network, they make the rules.

Mine actually stopped working and Adelphia said they won't make it work with their system. It was only 802.11b with WEP anyways. It was cheap real for what it was back then.
