Cable Modem Advice

I am getting cable internet access on the 8th of this month thru Insight. They are allowing me to use one of the following modems.

3Com CMX2940, 3CR29220, 3CR29221, 3CR29223
Arris/Nortel CM100, CM200, CM200U
BestData CMX100, CMX110
COM21 DP1010, DP101, DP111, DP1110, Doxport 1110
D-Link DCM-100, DCM-200
Ericsson PipeRider HM200C
High Speed Surfing SM100
Linksys BEFCMU10
Motorola (formerly General Instruments) SB2100, SB3100, SB4100
Thomson/RCA DCM105, DCM205, DCM215, DCM225, DCM226, DCM235, DCM235R,
DCM245, DCM245R
Toshiba DAZ8801, DAZ8811, DAZ8813, PCX1100, PCX1100U
Zoom 5011 (external model only)

I have been a 3COM fan in the past but if anyone uses one of these and likes it or hates it please let me know.
I will be connecting LAN not USB.
Thanks
Jeff

im sitting at a tier 2 cable internet helpdesk right now :P
Out of all the choices I see there, which are pretty good.. I'd choose a Toshiba PCX 1100U.
But don't take my word for it, what do I know? :P




(I know I keep customers connected :P)

I also highly recommend the Toshiba modem

I originally had a Surfboard modem which required a reboot about once a month, I got sick of it and bought the Toshiba which was cheaper than the origianl one I had ($150 at compusa) offers both USB and CAT-5 connections and hasn't crashed once sine I set it up

I have a Motorola SB4100. Has worked fine for me.. last 2 years. Never had a problem.

In my experience Insight RR service can be really poor. They don't maintain their cable lines.

I've had great service with Time Warner RR.

I can also vouch for the Motorola SB4100 being a good choice

Oh, the sb4100 is a good choice, it's a damned work horse, but I preffer the Toshiba for some reason..

Allright, well i say toshiba (highest number you can go, because that means newer)
or.. secondary motorola (same here, 4200 if you can.)

Does the type of modem help the speed at all or is a cable modem a cable modem

That's the same modem I have. I have had no problems with that modem. It's fairly new model so if the cable company's list isn't up to date, that would be why that model isn't listed on there. My cable company just put that model on their list when I called to set up my account.
