  • Advice on Cable Modem/WiFi Router for TWC connection

    I am relocating and will be using TWC cable internet for the first time. I'm seeking recommendations for single unit Modem/Router - esp the best "Bang for the Buck" TWC does recommend Netgear N300 and N600 - both offer 300mbs speed. However, it appears the only difference is N600 is "300+300" Dual-Band. I'm not sure if the higher priced "300+300" is worth it or even required as I'll be the only user. Any suggestions or insight is greatly appreciated! newfreep "DRAIN the SWAMP...with extreme prejudice"

    Like clockwork, every September the entire tech world gets excited for the newest Apple device. The combination of a premium build, unmatched system performance, and tightly integrated software and services delivers what’s considered to be the gold standard in smartphone user experience. Over the past five years, Apple’s modem supplier was Qualcomm, but this year, Apple has taken a different approach with the decision to source two instead of one baseband chipset suppliers: Qualcomm and Intel. This created two distinct RF SKUs, one limited to GSM/WCDMA/LTE support (A1778, A1784), powered by Intel’s modem, and one with GSM/CDMA/WCDMA/TD-SCDMA/LTE support (A1660,...

    My 6 year old DSL modem is apparently dying. Turning the power on and off to the modem immediately brings it back for a while, but it is unreliable. I added on a router for a workstation and a hardwired network printing and an access point for wireless, but I would like to replace all of these pieces with a single unit. Requirements are compatibility with AT&T DSL, a hardwired network printer and workstation, and N and G wireless. Anyone have suggestions? Thanks.

    I have a question regarding the modem on my PC. My OS is Windows Vista and my IP is NetZero. When someone tries to call on my phone, it won't disconnect my Internet dial-up service. Instead, callers listen to my line ringing and ringing. How can I fix my modem software so that incoming calls will get through (IOW, my phone will ring)? I went to the control panel and can't figure it out. Than you!

  • How do I log cable modem down time?

    My internet cable modem company, Millennium Digital, has had its ups/downs lately. My wife says it is down during the day a lot. I don't have to pay for down time if I report it. It would be nice to have a simple system tray program that monitors/logs the cable Internet down time so I can request a refund if it gets unreasonable. Does anyone know of such a program? It would be nice if it was designed to just do the above.
