Comcast Modem Issues...Not working with router.

Comcast Modem Issues...Not working with router.

thread537-1173649: Problems with Comcast Modem...

I was having a strange issue, where if PC was connected to modem direct, all was fine....but when I introduced my router (Linksys WRT54G or WRT110), internet was flaky...and intermittent.  It drove me nuts.

My friend recommended replacing the modem with a motorola.  
Comcast had replaced twice with diferent brands, current being RCA.  I purchased the Motorola SB6120 at BestBuy @ $99...and BAM!  All is happy!!!

My test improved: (old / new)

You'll save the $5 rental fee from it will pay for itself eventually...but worth it already.
