It works! but needs to be set correctly (on Time-Warner cable)
, January 3, 2014
This review is from: Netgear CG3000D Euro-Docsis 3.0 Wireless Cable Modem Gateway (Personal Computers)
Initially I had the same problem everyone else has complained about - slow loading of webpages, but fast according to Speedtest. To get it to work correctly, you need to turn off IP Flood Detection in the Services menu (apparently the modem decides that complex webpages are flooding the modem and throttles the traffic, when you shut off this setting, now you get full speed internet without any problems). To set it, connect to the modem at http://192.168.0.1, user: MSO, password: changeme (these are the defaults), click on Services (on the left), and uncheck IP Flood Detection. You still need to call TimeWarner cable with the MAC address for them to allow it on their network. After they did their stuff, I reset the modem (using a paperclip in the bottom for 10 seconds), but I don't think this was necessary (this was before I found the IP Flood Detection setting). (Time-Warner Cable wouldn't give any help at all (they suck), and neither will Netgear.)
After it is set correctly the modem works great and the WiFi works great too, actually working better/faster/more reliably than the modem/router that TimeWarner cable was renting to us. Best of all, it is $7 per month that we don't give to TimeWarner Cable.
