Linksys DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem (DPC3008-CC)

After a great deal of research for my circumstances, this specific cable modem is my best available option as a "supported device" with Comcast, my Internet Service Provider (ISP). Amazon Prime offered a competitive price (since increased). The order arrived on time along with another Amazon order placed later that arrived a day early.

If you are a basic internet service consumer, you probably are not shopping for a DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem. If you want the best "bang for your buck" and need fast internet access say for video on demand or online gaming, read on.

Bottom line, this Cisco DPC3800-CC cable modem works on my Comcast service. It does not operate at DOCSIS 3.0 speeds. My quantifiable thru put is now more than doubled by replacing a leased DOCSIS 2 cable modem with this DOCSIS 3 modem. The pay back is 12.2 months by eliminating the Comcast modem lease. My disappointment rests with Comcast, not this product. Here is why.

While the FCC wants US ISPs to make 100 million bits per second (100 Mbps) download speed our national standard by 2020, we are FAR from that standard in 2012. A cable internet provider that implements the full feature set of the cable industry's DOCSIS 3.0 standard could meet the FCC objective. But my service provider is not even close and has no incentive to do so. All we can do, as consumers footing the bill, is to be informed (search "DOCSIS 3.0") and purchase products that will work if the service level is provided.

This modem drops connections and/or get hung up constantly. It gets hung up and reboots itself several times a day. Sometimes I have to manually reset/power cycle the modem to get it back up and running again. You should NOT have to manually reset or power cycle your modem 2-10 times a day, especially a brand new modem. Tried troubleshooting with Comcast and was referred to Linksys Tech Support, who then tried to refer me back to Comcast. After telling them that Comcast referred me to Linksys in the first place, they tell me it is beyond their scope of expertise and referred me to Cisco Tech Support. Cisco Tech flat out said that they couldn't do anything for me or my problem since there is nothing configurable on the modem. I asked if the modem was faulty then wouldn't Cisco have to replace it under their 1 year warranty? The Cisco Tech said there was nothing they can do to help.

This problem with constant disconnects affects a lot of Comcast customers and the only fix seems to be have the firmware flashed back to the Aug 2011 because the Jan 2012 firmware is faulty. Unfortunately, none of the tech support people that I got in touch would was knowledgeable enough to help. Of the two Linksys and Cisco Tech I spoke to, neither was able to even give me the default password for the Modem status page.

The DPC3008 maybe Certified by Comcast but neither Comcast nor any part of Cisco or Linksys will provide support for it.
This modem doesn't have a log page to see what went wrong and there is no interface or even download site for the user to change the firmware.

Also, when the modem is hung up or if the internet status is disconnected, there is no way to reach the modem status page through a browser via the IP address

I bought this product b/c I signed up for comcast internet service based on a promo. The speed of service is guaranteed around 20mbps, so it's not their blast service etc. Since my promo runs for 12-months, I figured this was a cheaper alternative to leasing one of their modems at a tune of $7/month. A couple of things people should know before purchasing any cable modem. You need to ensure that the device is on their supported list. It turns out that comcast had about 50 modems on their supported list, but only about a half dozen or so where docsis 3.0 compatible. The 3.0 isn't a huge deal when you consider that most 2.0 modems have speeds that exceed the standard cable modem service speed. For example, my motorola surfboard 5120 is a docsis 2 modem and has a max speed of 38mbps. What I didn't want to have was an issue where I call comcast if there's a service issue...b/c their first diagnosis will be that I have an end of life modem. The 3.0 modem (this one) has a speed of around 760+mbps, which I'll probably never hit in owning it (unless google fiber comes along). So in the end I chose this modem, my break-even for purchase vs. rental is around 10.5 months. This modem is the same exact modem that comcast gave me, model etc. However, there were two differences that I noticed:
1) the manufacture date on the one I bought is 2/13 whereas the one from comcast is 5/12. When I plugged in (installed) the one from comcast a few weeks ago I noticed that the modem had to download some updated firmware. I've read that a few people on here have been having connectivity issues with the modem they've bought off of here and I'm thinking the updates/firmware are part of the problem. So I didn't have to download any firmware when I plugged in my modem since Cisco probably loaded it on there.
