Pros Easy to install
Cons Working OK at the beginning, but when it failed, it had passed return policy.
Summary I had bought this in Jan, and works for two months, then I found I network often down, my phone is not clear, the other party's vioce always in broken way, can not hear clearly.
sometimes a few seconds, and sometimes a few hours, I always thought this is cause by the ISP Wide Open West and the phone company Phone Power, but everytime I called, WOW told me the service was fine most of time, and Phone Power said they have not service problem. I also had called Linksys, they looked at the modem somehow through the Internet, and also said it works fine.
After two three months of phone struggle, WOW rent me another modem, and the VOIP phone provided by Phone Power then work perfectly good, and ISP service become very stable.
I sent the old Linksys modem CM100 in for replacement after a lot of arguement to tell them the modem doesn't work, they give me a replacement in about August, and now this replaced unit is broken again, I have to rent from WOW again.
With all those shipping and handling, I can buy a new cable modem.
Pros backed by the best router maker in the business
Cons only one ethernet port, or usb port, no MAC cloning
Summary Come on guys. you know as well as we do, most cable vendors require you to use their equipment. Usually this is a broken down version of last decade technology, and no features but a single eithernet port to pump your entire network data in and out. It doesnt matter how much data flow you have in house. That GB switch ait gonna cut it when you can only use a single cat5e.
How about MAC cloning so we can use your product with our hard to get along with Cable providors! (wireless N, file storage?, Firewall, gb switch with 8 ports backplained to the motherboard?) Oooooo and add on a wireless N Media Center extension, and we are talking the best of the best! I would trade in all my routers, switches, cables, nic cards, and firewall and pay $1000.00 for what Im asking for. What do you say linksys? (BREAK THE MOULD!) whew!
