Re: roadrunner turbo with sb5101 ?

Do your research carefully. I had a TW RCA DOCSIS 2.0 modem and went to service center to get a 3.0, they just laughed. So, I bought the SB6141. It is a great modem BUT TW provisions it in a way that they block you being able to configure any options. They tell me that this is not a problem, it is a feature... They are protecting me from myself in making changes that might not work. It is up and running but much slower than the old DOCSIS 2.0. These are the same folks that told me sometime back that the reason my service was down was probably because I had installed my ethernet cable wrong, to remove it and switch ends between the router and the NIC.

??? The SB6141 is a dumb modem (only) and has no settings to change...
