Motorola SB5101 IS THE BEST!!!!!
Motorola SURFboard SB5101 Cable Modem is the best modem you can get no matter which cable company you have. It is so good that it will even take weak signals and turn them into good working signals. Motorola has always been the leader in modems for cable company's nationwide. If you are planning to buy a modem don't go for anything other than this modem. It meets all the industry's highest standards and gives you the highest possible speed. You will not be dissapointed. This is the best modem I have ever purchased.

Great cable modem!
This is not my first cable modem. I've owned a 3Com "sharkfin", two very early model Motorola surfboard's (SB3100 and SB4200), a Teryon, and up until now a Scientific Atlanta.
I bought this SB5101 because I was tired of getting TCP resets from dropped packets on the Scientific Atlanta. It was also starting to affect the reliability of my VoIP phone service through Vonage. Oddly, my cable lines appear clean (the house is only 3 years old) and are buried outside. However, one of the things I noticed was that both upstream and downstream signals were close to their limits (-2dbmv downstream and 50dbmv upstream). I knew this was not ideal. However, I was irritated that my Scientific Atlanta would not let me look at any of the details of its configuration or its logs. Soooooo, I new I wanted a new modem, and that I wanted one of the best, most reliable, and most user friendly cable modems on the market, the SB5101.
This new modem plugged in very easily in place of the old unit (of course), and with the assistance of my cable ISP, was active in under 5 minutes. My only complaint is that the information with the customer serial number and HFC MAC address are printed too darn small for my aging eyes (without my reading glasses).
Since activating, I have had no dropped or missed connections. My upstream connection is now at 45dbmv and my downstream is at -4dbmv. My signal-to-noise ratio is running at 35db. All of this is well within acceptable levels of operation.
I love Motorola cable modems. They are the Cadillac of DOCSIS cable technology.
If you are looking for a good modem, buy this one!!!Read full review
