modem - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

What is the difference between an expensive cable modem and a cheap cable modem? I recently bought an Xbox 360 and I am tired of moving my cable modem between my computer and my xbox. I have an Motorola SB5120 right now. Will I notice any difference in online game play between the modem I have now and a cheap or older model modem? Any recomendations?

I'd say any cable modem made in the last 10 years will easily handle the fastest speed your cable provider can deliver. We get pretty crappy baud rates here in the US. If you were in S. Korea where they typically are in the 15-20 mbps baud rate you might have to be concerned, but not here. You can get something really cheap on eBay. Jusy look up the moel number and make sure it can do 6 mbps or so and you'll be covered. The Motorola SB5120 is rated at 30.
