DOCSIS 3.0 Modem - Wired or Wireless?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I am upgrading my internet from 25 Mbps to 50 Mbps. The reason is because the download speeds are terrible with this. It's like 1.5 to 3 mbs per second when I use Fileserve and even less than when I use Filesonic or other sources. P2P is HORRIBLE. It's a shame too because the web surfing is fast and I get no lag when I play games and I can play and download at the same time with no problem.

But if I download over 1GB at the same time the modem likes to crash. Even does when I am under 1GB sometimes. Very unreliable.

Anyway, I am looking at two that I confirmed works with Cox.




I have no use for wireless but I've been told that wireless is safer for security purposes. It also has a 4 port Gigabyte router which I need for two sources of internet. It is $40+ more. Judging from the reviews it seems to be giving many people problems.

Can someone tell if it's worth it? Also, are these good modems? Has anyone had any experience with them? Thanks.

Keeping your hardware seprate is always a good idea incase their is a malfunction that way you won't be completely out.
If you do have to pick yourself up a modem the sb6120 is sweet. When i upgraded for my 9 year old one to the 6120 the dl speeds were a hugh improvement.
However, it could also the servers your dl from that may be limiting you to.
