Re: [TWC] Time warner cable and Motorola Surfboard 6141
Just an FYI to all on this thread: I have had endless issues with "peak time" slowdowns and also random poor speeds at various times/days. I routinely bypass my wireless and hard connect to router. Likewise, I direct connect to modem. Regardless, speeds are simply inconsistent and very low for a few days each month.
6141 signals taken 01-31-13
I purchased a 6141 running SB_KOMODO-18.104.22.168-SCM03-NOSH
three weeks ago and continue experiencing the same issues with intermittent slow speeds.
A TW tech came out again today, saw my new 6141 and immediately told me (yes, an actual quote) "Your modem is the problem. It cannot handle higher speeds." He then advised me to purchase a 6580. I asked him to quickly pack his $hit and leave.
