Docsis 1.1 enough?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So my internet has been **** lately. I'm not getting my usual speeds of 6mb down 512kb up. I didn't notice it until I did a speed test and I was getting like 1mb down. So I looked up my modem and I found out its a docsis 1.1. Am I fine with this docsis 1.1 modem or should I get a docsis 2.0 or 3.0 modem? To my understanding docsis 1.1 is outdated. Also could this also maybe mean that my modem has crapped out? I've had it for a long time and I got it for free from a friend.

model is motorola sb5120. and I'm pretty sure my signals are alright, because it doesn't ever lose connection or anything.

Depends what service are you paying for?

if you're on like docsis 2.0 and have 1.1 router i can see you're problem.

but the random drop is speed will probably be you're isps fault and not you're own maybe give them a call?

You really should try to have at least a Docsis 2.0. I had a 2.0 and upgraded to a 3.0 and got an additional 10mbps so the difference between a 1.1 and a 3.0 should be extremely noticeable.

The DOCSIS 1.1 standard has plenty of bandwidth in itself.
Only problem is, that's just the standard. Your device may or may not be able to reach the capacity of the standard.

Given the age of the standard, it's time to buy a new modem.
