Top critical review

Right out of the box, I ran into nonstop issues with this modem. Some online research (outside of Amazon) confirms that I am by far not the only person to experience this.
The modem will work fine for a period of time, initially a couple of hours. After that, the speed will drop to almost zero on the upload and download. Packet loss becomes a problem, too (20-30% loss), but this does not even come close to accounting for the overall drop in speed. One test (I had to run it several times before it would even complete) showed that the modem was downloading at 0.15 Mbps!
Unplugging the modem and plugging it back in solved the problem for a short time, but the modem would almost immediately run into the same problem unless it remained unplugged for several hours. After leaving it unplugged overnight, I again got an hour or two of reliable speed out of it. After that, the same thing happened, again and again.
I returned this product to the seller for a refund, and got a Netgear modem. I have had no issues with it.
