  1. Alright, so this has been pretty eye opening ordeal. Just to recap: Ordered two routers to test. SB6141 and CM500-100NAS. I currently had the SB6183. SB6183 Old test with SB6183 for comparison: SB6141 Now, I had them activate the SB6141. I didn't say anything about the type of router or anything, they just asked for the MAC address and it was activated 2-3 minutes later. Here are the results: I asked them about it downgrading me, and the lady had no idea what I was talking about. She said my plan was correct and that router "just can't do the speed you
  2. So I've ordered the SB6141 and spoke with Time Warner about it after doing so. They've told me that when I switch to the SB6141, their system will not allow me to use the 300/20mbps "Ultimate" speed provisioning and I will be reverted down to the old 100/10mbps speeds and they will not be allowed to modify that to use the theoretical 300+mbps speed rated on the packaging. Something to do about network saturation and the amount of bonded channels (8 down instead of the needed 16). The guy was pretty nice and he seemed to know what he was talking about (3rd person I spoke to, I assume he was
  3. Okay, you've sold me. I just purchased it and I'll report back tomorrow after work with a side-by-side comparison.
  4. @CA3LE, in your experience, will the SB6141 work with the 300/20 speed of DOCSIS 3.0? On Time Warner's site, the SB6141 is listed as being able to reach speeds "up to 100Mbps" (obviously from your post above, that isn't completely true). Would it be able to reach 300mbps download or should I look at some of the other rated 300mbps routers listed on their "approved list" of routers? The following are their approved list of ~300mbps approved routers: C6300 - $200 CM500-100NAS - $100 D3CM1604 - $100
  5. Excellent response, thank you! I will see about getting the 6141 to see if it fixes the issue and report back. I've recently done a complete overhaul of my home office networking equipment because a Mikrotik router was giving me some huge problems (sub 10mbit speeds on 1gbps link negotiation) and just bought what I assumed was the best cable router available. Everything has been much better, but as always I'm looking for "best" not just "better", which prompted this query. I almost wonder if this is by design given how it ramps back when nearing the end of the file. I'll have to test i
  6. Does anyone have an explanation of what is going on with my speed tests? I've been noticing this lately that I have a high middle variance, and hitting my maximum speed takes a good 3-5 seconds, then it quickly drops back off after hitting it when it nears the end of the test. Is this considered a "good" test? Notice the "Middle" value is 100+mbps different from my final result, and the "maximum" speed is 180+mbps different. My question is: What causes this and is there anything on my end I can do differently to correct it? From TWC's own speed test: Locally on my of
