Compatible with Comcast? I am hoping to replace my $3/month Comcast rental modem with my own modem. This is the same model as my Comcast modem, does any one if I can just buy my own and replace the comcast one wihout any problems? Has anyone done this? Thanks.

Yes. All you have to do is 1) buy the new modem, 2) call Comcast support and give them the numbers on the bottom or back of the modem and they will register the modem with their system and 3) return their modem.
We're charged $3.50 for our Comcast modem out here in Sacramento, CA.
I disconnected this modem soon after installing it and put my Comcast modem back online. The download speed of this Motorola paled in comparison to the Arris Comcast modem. Wasted my money with this modem since I'm not using it.
Got tired of the Arris modem from Comast and re-installed the Motorola. So far, it's not bad at all. I guess the last time I installed it, I was having line issues with the provider (Comcast). I no longer have to reset the modem to get on the internet like the Arris modem.
Update: yes about a month ago I got a Linksys (CM100) modem and it works perfectly fine with comcast. I am very happy to see my bill go down exactly $5/mo and also buy a quality product. Just an update. :)
Does anyone have experience with using the SB5101 and the Ooma with Comcast? So far as I research these modems, it seems most people are extremely satisfied and a few find they don't work well at all. So I'm looking for the best option for a modem. The Ooma so far has worked well with the Arris modem we are renting from Comcast and we're saving $40/month, but I would like to save another $5 in the rental fees. However I don't want to be the guinea pig. Any thoughts?
