msmisfit -- I'll have to check on the firmware version; it's possible I got a push last night explaining the faster speeds this morning (but still slower than expected).
compuguybna -- you trying to make me feel bad with your 60Mbps DLd speeds? Anyway a friend just got her new Cable modem about a month before I did, and hers was a Cisco.
The brand of modem depends on the market you are in. In this area Motorola is the choice of Charter, while in other areas it is Cisco.
I remember someone else mentioned that this may be due in fact to equipment at the headend of each areas system. The headend stuff here is also Motorola.
