Re: Tired of renting Comcast's modem. Which to buy?


I have an ARRIS WBM-760A (picked up at Comcast Lanham/Seabrook on Annapolis Road), and I have the Performance plan. No upstream bonding since I swapped (US light has remained yellow), however, DS has been solid-green (bonding active) from the jump (all ports are gigabit from PC to modem - including the router between them).

Okay - took a peek at the browser-based diags (same IP as Motorola). DS bonding is indeed active, but US bonding is not (US is DOCSIS2/ATDMA). Looks like its external to the modem (possible CMTS issues); also, analog goes away this month (real reason I went to Comcast Lanham/Seabrook - to pick up a CableCard self-install kit [Motorola MediaCipher M-card]).
