Re: [Speed] Northeast speed changes coming.

Not quite getting the speeds I expected... Using an ancient BEFCMU10 ver. 4.. Is it time for a SB6121?

The Lynksys is not Docsis3.0 Compatible. ALLor almost all of Comcast is now DOCSIS3.0 enabled with multiple downstream Bonding to achieve the higher speeds.

Oh, yes. Your modem very old. Docsis 2 if memory serves. If you buy your own modems, I recommend this one:

»www.amazon.com/Zoom-DOCSIS-Cable···le+modem

Many who have come here asking the same question have bought one with great results. Plus, it's 8x4 vs the 4X4 that you get with the Motorola SB6121. The Zoom modem I linked to is also not only better then the SB6121 specs wise, it's also cheaper.

THanks, order a J revision, I guess I'll have to chug along at 34mbit for the time being

Yes. 34 megs ain't bad, but getting the full 50/10 or better Blast! gives is better. Also, what router do you use? You might wanna think about upgrading that too, depending on what you already have.

My router is fine, got a D-Link DIR-655 (not the best but it works fine)

Thanks for your help.

You're welcome. Be sure to come back and post when you get the new modem, so we can drool. If you have any problems, come back as well. Good luck, my man.
