  1. My upload test for 3MB just came back at 31KBps, about 7KB over average. Not sure what the difference is, but I love it. Anyone know if Mediacom has it capped at 5Mbps? In alot of my download tests I am getting 5.6Mbps. Not that I mind.
  2. Hi, I am new to the forums. Just found them last night and was looking through some posts and found one that was interesting. One that said he went and bought a Surfboard Modem, model SB5120 and it increased his speed. Well, curious, I went to Walmart today and picked up one of these for $59.99. Came home and went through the process with Mediacom to get it to work. My scores last night were around 2.5Mbps down and 17Kb up. The first thing I did when we got the modem working is come here to test the speeds and here are the results: :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 4573 Kbps about 4.6 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) Download Speed is:: 558 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net (server1) Test Time:: 2006/03/08 - 3:08pm Bottom Line:: 82X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 1.84 sec Diagnosis: Awesome! 20% + : 39.89 % faster than the average for host (mchsi.com) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-X3OKF5AG8 I must have tested 50 times last night, always getting different results but they were always around 2-3 Mbits per second and always 17Kb per second for upload. Needless to say, with the change over on the cable modem I almost doubled my speed. I was using the Linksys before, cant remember the exact model number but it ended in a 10. Unreal the difference a cable modem can make, I have been limiting my upload/download speeds ever since I got cable internet 5 years ago, all because of the modem. I would suggest to anyone out there that has a linksys or other brand to upgrade to this Surfboard modem. If it doesnt work, you can always take it back to your local Walmart.
