Not compatable with all Charter systems7/14/2011
I bought two of these modems, one for home and one for work. Our home was set up first with cable internet service, so I began there. Had problems getting it to lock on to the signal. Had installer come out - cable signal was perfect. Went through process of provisioning, deprovisioning, and reprovisioning. Nothing worked. Installer tried a "rental" modem he had in his truck (a Cisco DOCSYS3.0), and it worked fine. Weird. He even said that these modems may work on other Charter systems, just not the one here (Upper Michigan, which is DOCSYS 3.0 ready). A real head-scratcher.
This is the one to buy4/28/2011
Doubled my download speed (speedtest.net) from my old Motorola surfboard. Easy to connect. Couldn't be happier with this purchase.
This modem is the best, beats out all the other brands that i have switched to including motorola, rca, etc. I noticed the speed of the upload and download once i logged onto the net. It just uploads with breeze. One thing, you have to call your cable provider to give them the MAC address.
On speedtest.net, I am now consistently getting 50 Mbps down and 10 Mbps up, which is 5x faster than what I am paying for. (Don't tell the cable company.) The increase in performance is well worth the price of this unit. It is compact, easy to install, and works as advertised. My only complaint is the external power supply. I find "wall wart" external power sources annoying. Unfortunately, I could not find a cable modem with the power supply built in.
