There is a known issue with this modem

Linksys DPC3008 Advanced DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
Linksys DPC3008 Advanced DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem

Pros: Compact.

Cons: Extremely unreliable. Drops connection every 15-20 minutes with any sort of load. Is known to have broken firmware. Should not be for sale.

Overall Review: I game and steam and it dropping connection bothered me. After investigating forums about why it resets every 15 mins, I found several posts about it being a firmware issue from 2012. The only way around it seems to be replace the modem. Why would Linksys sell me something that is broken? Why would they not have fresh firmware to address this issue. It's a 3 year old problem and it continues to exist. I've always loved Linksys products but this level of laziness changes my mind. I would return it but then I would have no internet at all and I would have to wait on the shipping. Instead I'm going to go to a store, buy a netgear or something, and then never giving Linksys money again. You guys blew it.
