I need to purchase a new cable modem. Anyone have any recommendations? I am leaning towards a Motorola model. I appreciate any help.
Hey AB, I'm using a Scientific Atlanta Webstar 2100 and it's been able to hold a strong, stable connection even with quite a heavy load consisting of my 360, desktop, laptop, and 3 other family computers.
Most problems I encounter are with my actual ISP, not the modem, so I definitely recommend it. My old modem was a Motorola and it wasn't the greatest tbh.
Should have mentioned that. It's the DPC2100R2 model, and unfortunately I'm unable to tell you where it came from as my cable company provided it for me free as a replacement for my original Motorola modem.
I used the last 3 models of the Motorola surfboard in the last 7 years and have had no problems. I also rent it from the cable company, so if I do have a problem, I just switch it out. I'm currently using the SBV 5220 model, that enables a phone connection as well as an internet connection. As long as you get a Docsis 2.0 capable modem and a warranty you should be fine.
