Re: sb6141, sb6180, zoom5341, dpc3010

45$ for a dpc3010, comcaststeve said he can activate it but can't guarantee that it will be stable or something. It is much cheaper than a used sb6121, or sb6141 or 5341j though.

Thanks for the link, do you have the same modem and if you do how is your experience with it.

Since Comcast is already placing the blame for your connection problems on your older SB5121, it might not be a good choice for you to try to use a modem purchased from eBay (and that by itself is a risky proposition) that is not officially supported (even if ComcastSteve pulls some strings to activate it). Here is a link to Comcast's official supported modem list: »mydeviceinfo.comcast.net/ (try to find the Cisco DPC3010 on that list).

Of course, after receiving my Caveat Emptor warning, YMMV.
