Linksys CM3016 16x4 686 Mbps DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Certified by All Major Cable Providers
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs Good stability and performance (but no GUI) 01/06/2017

This review is from: Linksys CM3016 16x4 686 Mbps DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Certified by All Major Cable Providers

Pros: Setup was simple: [a] Screw your cable companies (ISP's) Coax cable into the Modem, [b] Plug an Ethernet cable into the Modem, and your Router's Ethernet port, [c] Plug the A/C adapter into the Modem and a wall outlet, and wait for the Modem to boot up. At this point you should be able to access your ISP's "Walled Garden" web page. Enter the Modem's MAC address into the web page, and your ISP should soon activate the Modem on your account.

The Modem has maintain a stable connection with my ISP (Comcast). My ISP Upstream signal level is pretty poor (e.g. ~50 dBmV) which has caused instability is some Modems from time to time.

Good Modem Speed (I get about 120 Mbps Download and 6.3 Mbps Upload). DOCSIS 3.0 (anything less is becoming obsolete).

All Ethernet ports are Gigabit.

The Modem is rather large, but sits on end so it doesn't require much table space.

Cons:
Once the modem is activated with your ISP, there is no way to access the Modem's GUI Status web pages. With many other Modems, you can direct your web browser to the Modem's IP address (e.g. 192.168.100.1, etc.) and view the Modem's GUI. Not the case with the CM3016.

The Modem takes awhile to Boot up. When you power up the CM3016 it just sits there for a few minutes with nothing but the Power status LED on. After a few minutes the Modem illuminates (in sequence) the Upstream, Downstream, Internet, and Router status LEDs. The Upstream and Downstream status LED first turn Green, then later turn Blue (indicating "Channel Binding" has been successful with your ISP).

Other Thoughts: My greatest disappointment is the inability to view the Modem's Status GUI. If this is not an issue for you, I recommend this Modem (for it's Speed and Stability).
