Why would you allow TWC to give you a crap modem? Accept ONLY Motorola 6141. NEVER accept a junk modem that has supposedly router, family controls, etc. Use YOUR ROUTER. Accept only a MODEM without other junk included.
said by Fleeced:
Or you can have it bridged so none of the "junk" is present. Lots of people on here do that and don't have an issue.
Let me first address Mele20s comments.
Why do you feel that the Ubee is a crap modem? Im in the Raleigh-Durham area of NC & the Motorola 6141 is not an option for me; only the Ubee or an Arris.
What JUNK are you referring to? I had a Cisco Valet M20 router, whose signal wasnt performing well in my home. I had thought about upgrading to another router of my own, but of course, TWC is not going to be responsible for servicing it. In addition, I had a problem awhile back with a different TWC modem & my own router & they tried to blame the issue on my router.
Bottom line for me is if the TWC equipment performs the way I expect it to, Id rather leave well enough alone.
Now to Fleeceds comment about bridging so that none of the junk is present. Im presuming that you are referring to bridge the TWC modem with a router of my own if I chose to go that route, correct? If not, why would I want to bridge my LAN & local network at this point?
My understanding of bridging is that by creating one between an Internet connection and a network connection creates an unprotected link between my network and the Internet, which makes my network accessible to anyone on the Internet. True?
