I have had no problems at all with my Motorola SB5101.
Check the modems and customer reviews at Newegg.

I would agree with the Motorola Surfboard 5101 or 5110 models, we used them at the isp i worked at for years. Compared to a bunch of other ones, they were definitely the best...except for supporting that stupid stanby button on top! Everyone would always press that and then call.

"How many lights do you see on your modem sir?"
"Oh, just one...standby."
"Can you hit the standby button on top again please? K THX BYE"

I know what Jarvis is talking about with the stupid button. thats funny

The Motorola is a good modem. Its actualy the modem that COX uses as their OEM modem here in New Orleans and they do work good but, I have a sugestion that might save you some cash and give you more options with all the bells and whistles.

The motorola modem usualy runs about $75.00 retail

Try this, It's way more reliable and faster!

D-link DCM-202 Cabel modem

I took the liberty and found you the best price on the internet
at $45.00 and no shipping. (almost half the price of the motorola)

I'm a network administrator at a very large church here in new orleans. I built the network from scratch. The property is half of an entire city block and has wireless throughout the whole property and also about six hard wired computers.
Our whole network is D-Link and I couldn't be happier with it.
It's extreamly reliable with lots of features on each peace of equipment.
D-link realy goes the extra mile on giving more options and speed than any other company.
Oh, and the tech support is top notch. Way better than Charter will give you with that Motorola.
