Best Cable Modem

Recommended Posts

I also recommend the Scientific-Atlanta DPC2100 Series, it's an extremely good Cable Modem. I always get good speeds results with this modem.  I would also recommend the Motorola Surfboard SB5100, I wouldn't recommend the SB5120. :)

i Have used 3 different modems

Some motorola

Toshiba PCX 2000

and a Dlink DCM 202

and the dlink DCM is by far the best. i have had it for 3 months now and i have never had to reset it, reboot it, or power cycle it ever. And its fast. + its compatable with all ISP that use docsis 1.0 1.1 or 2.0

and its not that expensive

Motorola SurfBoard SB5100 is the best one out there (my opinion)

It is compatible with most of the other devices (routers and voip gizmos)

I work in Voip Provider company as technical support and when even we see the customer has SB5100, its a relief to us.

i have the same one. i got it May of 2004 (last year). it was working great. now it's been messing up for the last month  :angry5:

i might end up getting "Motorola SurfBoard SB5100". i am reading good reviews here in testmy.net, cnet.com, and other sites. i was reading about the linksys BEFCMU10 ver.2 (have now) that it only last about a year or two than the connection starts to drop

First I've heard of it too:

http://www.ti.com/sc/docs/news/2001/01203.htm

EDIT:

clicking 'show all' under product specs, doesn't seem to be much difference except for the nifty TurboDOX feature on the 5120....seems maybe it is more flexible.  I'd say go with the 5120.
