I just got Medicom Online today (the base package 12/1.) I am planning to get my own modem. I would like to buy a wireless modem. I am looking for a list of some type of modems that are approved. I've found other posts that discuss potential modems, but the latest post I found was from April.
The other posts that I read suggested that it would be better NOT to get a DOCSIS 3.0 modem. Is that true? When I asked the tech about it today, he said that 3.0 was better. That is probably somewhat obvious, but if it doesn't work well with the regular Online plan, then it won't be better for me.
I've read on more general networking websites that I needed to get 3.0 because 2.0 was almost obsolete, slower, etc., but what I read on here was that the base Online package did not work as well with the 3.0.
The modems I am looking at are all in the Motorola Surfboard Group.
Motorola SBG900, SBG901 (these are 2.0)
Motorola SBG6580 (this is 3.0)
any help would be greatly appreciated
