Ultra crappy ubee ...

The Motorola SBG6580 TWC provided me is no better. I'm shocked at how bad this thing is, especially given the amount of time it's been out on the market. There's been plenty of time for firmware refinement, yet it's still junk.

Trying to use its routing features, it progressively gets slower, to the point where you can't pull more than 30mbps after just two days (I have 50mbps service). I had to bridge it to stop that nonsense. Some people have to run QoS in their personal routers just to keep it from freezing while uploading files (even bridged). I haven't run into that, but I haven't stressed the upstream yet.

Do modem manufacturers just not care about quality anymore?
