Pros Reliable for the most part, I rarely ever have to power cycle (Turn it off for 5 minutes to get it working)and I do count on it for working full time from home. However I am hard wired directly to the modem.
Cons As for the WIFI capabilities, I am not so confident. I'm only commenting here as I'm on a search for a better device... I suspect the range is not so great, I've had to move it a few times to get good WIFI signals in my 2200 SQ FT house. Hmmm.
Summary If your using it in an open... unobstructed space and dont need to rely on it's wireless capabilities it is a good device. For the most part the WIFI has been good so I give it a 3 star rating, but I have had low signal readings when I test it around the house. "Could" be related to how many people are on in my area. But i pat $80 for top speeds from SHAW.

Summary The fix for me was to go to a Motorola modem and return to my Airport Extreme. I don't know if the device was not set up right by Mediacom or the DPC3825 is a lemon. After reading the first review I'm glad I didn't waste my time trying to get support. Apple by the way tried to assist me.
Pros It worked for 30 days easy to set up if you are computer savy
Cons Zero product support from Cisco as iits called and Enterprise product
Manuals form Cisco references are wrong and its not supported at all
I have tried two and got the same problem product line is defective
No not buy this
Summary This gateway is not a native Cisco product its from Scientic Atlanta so they don't "own" or stand behind it. Cisco will only support Enterprise users when it can be purchased via the web through other outlets. My dealiing with Cisco was beyond poor. Note that Cisco makes Linksys so be aware product QC and support is not correct.
