Re: Got New Modem- It the New LINKSYS MODEM VERSIO

When you get it hooked up, if you would be so kind, could you post the firmware?

How could I refuse such a polite request from a cool cat in shades?

OK, got it installed (another story for another day), not tweaked yet but did get 1.00MB/sec down from 55MB of a large file from Microsoft Download. Much better than what I have seen since the upgrade.

Per request:


Modem



Connection



Modem Log

looks like the only thing you cannot see anymore is the CM cfg file name.

I expected to see uptime, too. If it is there, I'm missing it.

And yes there is "3 LIGHTS" That is confirmed..It seem to be the better Cable Modem that I being Reading on this forum. I saw the other ones.. but after I heard the issue with those, I decide to go with this.. Heck I have a Router from LInksys No problem with it so far.:)
Also with that Router I have.. Would it hurt the router if I update the Firmware? Would I see any difference?
It a LINKSYS BEFW11S4 version 3. The firmware is 1.44.2, Dec 13 2002

I didn't buy the Linky modem because I thought it was better than some of the other popular ones and I'm not thinking it is. I bought mine primarily because I could get more diagnostic info from it than any of the others I had seen yet. I suspect there are a number of other newer modems which would perform as well as this one.

You probably should ask your router firmware question in the Linksys Forum. You will probably find more members there having experience with your particular router and the firmware versions.
