5 out of 5 eggsGreat Modem

Comments: I was having trouble with my old modem, I kept losing my conection. This happened at least every other day and some times would take hours to get to reconnect only to drop out 20 minutes later. So I decided to research the problem and many people said it was associated with a poor modem. I got this modem and all my trouble went away. took about 10 minutes to set up and connect to the internet and I am getting faster download went from 2.5Mb to 4.3Mb(I am going through a Netgear wireless router to the modem). I have not had one problem yet for over one week. (that's how long I've had it.)
Word of advice - before attaching this to your cable ISP provider, get instructions from your ISP on how to set up a new modem. Most ISPs require the modem to be regestered with their systems.

5 out of 5 eggsRecommended Upgrade

Comments: I was very impressed with this modem. Out of the box to run time was about 10 min (including the call to Comcast to get the new modem setup). With the old Comcast loaner modem I was happy getting 250 - 300 KB/s. After installing this my download speed doubled (I 've actually sustained a download rate of 725 KB/s)
