Re: Zoom 5341J vs Motorola SBG6580

I had provisioned a Motorola SURFboard SB6120 before the UBEE DDM- and I couldn't get the damn Motorola to stay online. Thats where I sold the Motorola on eBay and bout a NEW UBEE-DDM3513 and I picked this modem b/c when I first moved down to Hattiesburg, MS I lived in a fully furnished apartment. Including the internet connection. I got solid signals and in those 3 months not one Sync issue. So I switched.
Reason I asked the question is b/c I am swapping my VoIP gateway and it's internet connection for a modem with 8 bonded downstream and 4 upstream channels. I plan on getting the Extreme 50/15 and using the new modem (the Zoom) and keeping my Performance w/ PowerBoost on the UBEE. TV is digital starter w/ HD DVR.
So there is my explanation...

If you are saying that you are going to use two modems on the same account / address then be prepared to pay for two subscriptions (double what you are paying for internet now) ! That is if your particular local system even allows this.

Was just for curiosity's sake. Not accusing you of anything...

No not how I was interpreting it, Comcast made a mistake and forgot to do something....regarding MAC addresses...so I get a good deal.
And yes, you can run two cable modems on one drop, but the entire length is RG6Q (Quad Shielded) so I do get good signal levels. Nevermind the graphic at the top, I was splitting a modem two times that's why ,my Upstream Power is so high...

Be aware that their system auditing (automated or otherwise) will likely catch up to this one day.
