Re: [Express] Should I bother with the SMCD3GN-RES modem? I purchased mine from a Rogers store for about the same price about a year ago.
This model has been rock solid for my "Extreme Plus" internet connection.
Wireless is not bad, but if you need alot of range (like your backyard) or have some difficult spots to reach in your home, I'd look for something else.
I tried a D-Link range extender, but I had a ton of problems getting it to stay connected. I haven't bothered to bridge mine to a separate wireless router yet.
