I need a news one and I'm looking for suggestions
Jewelzz, Cox usually sells/leases Toshibas or Motorolas.
I bought mine from them ... it's a Toshiba PCX1100U, and it's great. It's DOCSIS certified, and it has both Ethernet and USB connections.
The Motorolas are very good too. Just go for the one that costs less.
I'm moving NetRyder, remember?
The reason I'm looking for another one, my current one seems to be dying It just has to be docsys compatable
Jewelzz - don't know as this will be any help at all (probably not), but I rent mine from Comcast for $3.50 a month with the idea that "if I have a problem" - it's their modem - so they'll have to replace it! Mine is on 24/7 - couldn't find one for less than $100 - so I have to rent for about 2 1/2 years with no problems before I lose money on the deal!
hey i just got a linksys etherfast cable modem and it blazes, could ask for a more stable modem the crap cox provided was well .... crap ! LOL get the linksys prolly the same money cox is offering its modem to ya for.
I won't be using Cox once I move, it's some local cable company.
Linksys Etherfast Cable mode is nice....
here, linky for Jewelzz.
Toshiba and Moterola make good modems also, although I've got an RCA and it works wonderful for a year + now with no switching off.
SON OF A B!@&CH i got screwed i payed 120 for mine . but jewlezz it works with almost any cable isp. i tried renting mine from cox but they all but refused to come service it the first 2 times it broke down and refused me the third.
LOL That's pretty darn high for a cable modem! I think I got mine for around 80 at the time.
I just purchased a Motorola SB 5100 for $59
yeah the surfboards are cheap! and theres no problem with them. cable modems don't really make a difference its just the cable company that determines the speed.
Some ISPs do require that you have a DOCSIS certified modem, though. But I'm sure the Motorola is, in any case.
my surfboard 4100 is old, and power hungry... add to that a crap ISP. fun fun fun
Can u still buy Legacy modems ?
Get any Cable Modem with DOCSIS.
