[TW] Slow download speeds, need to get a new cable modem.
I have a Toshiba PCX2500 modem since Sept 07,TWC EarthLink. Averaging just under 5.00 Mb/s download speeds. The rep over the phone advised me to go to my local TWC center to get a new modem. Will they give me a choice of brands? I have read that they have a modem router combo. Is that a better setup then having 1 separate modem and 1 wireless router.
I wouldn't want a combo. If your internet is not working it will be difficult to tell what is wrong--the line, the modem, or the router. And routers can have a lot problems. But if you'd use a random crappy router otherwise, and don't mind having to go in again to swap TWC's combo device if any problem happens, it could be worth it.
