Here is my Cox Speed and I too have the 4mbps/512kbps package as well. This is about as fast as I can get mine even tweaking it with VanBuren's Settings. I'm not really complaining tho. :)

Cox has a monthly bandwidth limit of like 30 gigs down and 7 gigs up... and like 2 a day... Thats what I have against them... Internet should always be unlimited if you pay for 'unlimited'. I like to use my whole 3.0 / 768K to its fullest with Verizon, and know that I wont get a letter saying I used 160 gigs of bandwidth and Im abusing the network.

I current have the home office package  from Cox right now at 4mb/512k, I was thinking about getting another cable modem and account and mulitlinking them together using BAP, so I'd have around 10Mbps down, 1.5mbs up if I upgraded both accounts.  If I had the money to get a cisco 2600 router, i'd just set up load balancing then.
