After a few days of sporadic internet connectivity I’m finally back online. I spent far too long in modem swap hell with Time Warner Cable and decided to buckle down and purchase the Motorola SurfBoard SB6141 from my local Best Buy.
I decided on the SB6141 because it was the highest rated DOCSIS 3.0 modem on Newegg.com. Once I got it home, I made a (surprisingly) quick call to Time Warner, gave them the new modem’s MAC address, and was back online in about 30 seconds.
And now that I’m not spending $5.99 a month on modem rental fees, I’m seriously thinking about moving to Time Warner’s 50Mb down service.
