|High Speed, Low Cost
Cable Internet offers connectivity speeds up to 100 times faster than dial-up via a modem that connects your computer to the Internet. Many service providers charge a monthly fee to rent their modem, but own your own and you can save while you enjoy fast speeds for surfing, emailing, music, video, gaming and more.
From the leaders in networking, it's an ideal choice for reliable connectivity that's fully compliant with all industry standards, so you can be sure it will work with any DOCSIS cable Internet provider?s service.
Fast, Easy Set Up
Complete your setup with a single call to your service provider. Connect via USB or Ethernet to any computer and you're ready to start surfing. Or connect to a Linksys by Cisco wireless router to create a high-speed wireless home network that lets everyone in your family share the Internet without being tied down by wires.
Customer Reviews of Linksys CM100 Cable Modem with USB and Ethernet Connections
Great product, great service3/20/2009
Ordered this modem from Buy.com; product arrived as promised with no problem. Well satisfied. Will definitely come back for another purchase.
I recently upgraded a Docsis 1.0 Linksys cable modem with this new Docsis 2.0 cable modem and there was a huge difference. It was like going from dial-up to fiber. I have Comcast and the process took 5 minutes to upgrade to the new modem's MAC address. I was instantly getting close to 20 Mb/s download up from 3 Mb/s download. I would highly recommend that if you suspect your cable modem is old and running Docsis 1.0 then this is the solution.
Not as Good as my befcmu1012/31/2008
While this modem is an upgrade to my older BEFCMU10 modem it does not seem to work as good. I have difficulty accessing the modem settings and the log appears empty most times. When the log does contain entries the date/time is not set correctly. Connection speeds appear to be about the same as prior modem result. Comcast is the broadband carrier.
Happy With Purchase12/9/2008
Replaced a Toshiba modem that Cox said was nearing obsolescence. Installation was easy although it took two calls to Cox to get their system to recognize the modem. No problems since then. Uses half the power of the Toshiba (3W vs. 6W) and runs much cooler. Small desktop footprint. As always, fast shipping from Buy.com.
An Outstanding Cable Modem12/6/2008
I owned several Motorola cable modems in the past. The first would periodically stop working and had to be reset about once a month. The second stopped working when there was a thunderstorm about 5 miles away. The Linksys CM100 is a very capable device. I plugged it into the cable and the CableOne software recognized the new MAC number. I entered my name and password and was online in about one minute. The performance is very good with higher upload and download speeds and the unit is cool to the touch. I am very pleased with the product.
Good modem, could be cheaper.....11/26/2007
I bought this same modem at Staples during Black friday a few days back for only $40...It's very easy to use and you don't even need to install it to your PC unless you're using a USB connection(which isn't recommended if you're using high speed internet). Overall I'm satisfied with this modem but I wouldn't buy it for $60....
