Ah, that depends on which SMC, but for just that reason, I'm glad you mentioned it.
The one you were on was likely the DOCSIS 2.0 SMC8014, whereas they began rolling out the DOCSIS 3.0 SMCD3G not too long ago, which is what I have.
Also, you have to use their provided SMC modems if you have static IPs assigned (which I do).
It's more likely the service in your area. Ours, here, just isn't that great.
That said, I may just grab a 6121, anyhow, to test, out of interest. I'm thinking it's the service outside the modem, though.Edited by Antonio-Malcolm - 12/27/12 at 3:12pm
