[TWC] Motorola SB5120 Modem

I'm thinking of using an old Motorola SB5120 I have laying around with TWC Internet. I recall I trying it before, but had issues getting it working with TWC and ended switching back to the RCA modem they issued me. But now that they are charging the rental fee, would like to use my own modem.

Oddly the TWC web site lists the SB5120 as one they lease out (link), but not on their approved list to buy (link). Is anyone using the SB5120 currently with TWC?

I don't know of anyone off the top of my head, but if that doesn't work, I'd look at getting a D3. The rumor (There's another thread about it) is they're increasing speeds again, and with a D3 you've "futureproofed" yourself for some time.

Thanks for the replies guys. Just got service reactivated today, and old SB5120 modem is working fine. Only took a short call to TWC to get the modem registered with them.
