Darren Davis: Not to mention there is quite a bit of distance and wall/flooring between
the computer and the device.
Edward Innes: cannot connect dlink dir820L to my sbg wireless Motorola cable modem/router
Jack Mejia: How many devices can be connected before you see a slow down? My girlfriend
has an SMC from time Warner. She can have 2 people streaming a video but
when a third person tried to surf the Internet, it doesn't load anything on
the third device.
Arne Maeschaelck: Here in Belgium we only have DSL internet or cable internet. No fiber.
My provider has fiber to the backbone, but that's it.
My ex-DSL provider has VDSL2 but only in the big cities, so not at my place.
I had only ADSL at 4 mbps down, 0.5 mbps up, and they couldn't tell me if
there were higher speeds available for me in my street…
So I left them and got cable internet. Now I'm getting 120 Mbps down and 6
Mbps up (uploading is always slow in Belgium, except when you have a
business internet plan)…
I've got the same modem but with the carrier's logo on it.
The WiFi connection of that modem/router is crap, I had to buy a second
But with a RJ45-cable, I'm really getting awesome speeds.
10 ms ping - 114,4 Mbps down - 5,94 Mbps up
I know some people have a lower ping than me, here in Belgium, but I live
in a tiny city and the cable isn't underground here (on other places, the
tv distribution cable lays under the ground), so when the weather's bad, my
speeds can go down a little :(
I actually had no problems with that yet :)
ranscott2005: wow, with this modem and cox cable top tier, I'm getting 68 download and 22
upload on my wireless on Speedtest. net. the modem is back in a bedroom and
i'm in the dinning room. that's amazing to me!
TJFII1978: There will be a stat titled speed: That tells you the speed at which you
are connected to the router.
majestics97: Thanks it helps to know
DarkFusion1080: looking at these scores makes my wifi look like crap
André Reber: you have more upload then i do download
jose31hartford: Does it work with comcast?
tonycns: N is faster but you need a wireless device that supports N.
mpa324: I should have been more specific. I meant the router, I got it in wireless
network mode wpa2 aes. I'm still getting 130mbps
howardkevinm: mostly likely it should. the Gateway (which is what he has) uses your
computer cards speed. I have I Gateway Modem and a 1Gbps Eternet Card so my
connection is considerably faster. I pay Comcast for 105mbps and I
routinely get 125mbps.
DarkFusion1080: even mine is like that our city is planned to get google fiber so i look
forward to that
Rob M: You can also buy the SBG 6580 and they will let you use it like any other
sanctioned modem you can buy.
Dipen Patel: Can't believe I am paying 49.99 for 6 MBs for frontier. Im gona get TW rite
Ps3ReacTGaming: thats not very good
RedFromWinter: How well is the wireless range, and how well does this perform when there
are many connections? I am looking to purchase a reliable cable
modem/wireless router product.
hung pham: Hi : I bought one, but I could not get WiFi working ! No signal, even the
WiFi light is on & flashing. I tried CD loaded in, I tried WPS button. I
would greatly appreciate your helps. Thanks
TJFII1978: You are testing your internet speed when you use speedtest net. You are not
testing your wireless N speed at all. The way to tell the difference
between the wireless G and N speed is to go into the network & Sharing
center (windows vista, 7, and 8) or network connections (win XP). Click on
change adapter settings if you are using win vista or newer, it will open
your network connections window. Find your wireless connection and right
click on it and select properties or status (win 7).
howardkevinm: my speed is so fast the speedometer cant even calculate it lol. 121.21mbps
down and 21.75 up. Nearly 4 times faster than yours.
sga86: What wireless bandwidth are you getting? 100, 150, 300Mbps??
Michael Norman: I'll break this down in a way I got a 9 year-old to understand. What
confuses people is the idea that a faster router gives you faster internet.
Wrong. Pretend your internet speed is the speed of your car, the speed data
travels on the internet highway. And your car goes 120mbps max speed
without any traffic to slow you down. Stay with me: As you near your home,
the speed limit is suddenly 400mpbs, about 3 times the speed you pay for.
No matter how much you try, 120mbps is your limit. Think.
Dan B: I so love mine got mine for free from craphouse, just ask them to swap for
it!! I can torrent and play online at the same time with no lag!!!
Rob M: @TJFII1978 True, but Ive had other wireless N routers that couldn't do
these speeds in this situation.. one point of the video was to show speed
of 30+ Mb/s were indeed more then possible to a few naysayers who told me
interference from neighbors ( I live in apartments ) would degrade my
signal too much. At first it appeared they were right, but after a few
channel changes I found out they were wrong.
Konnor Adams: i dont even get 4.0 download lol
lonelyboy323: I am a bit confused. so which one is better N Or G ?
voronwae: Thanks, 40928rf. The only problem is that this test has little to do with
802.11n compared to 802.11g, and more to do with you testing your download
Widg3t's Widgets: you can never trust speed test apps.....and BTW, ookla runs both of those
Scott Mukubua: yes it does have one home at my home
Lalabran: My internet plan is up to 100mbps download speed and 20mbps upload. Will
this modem allow me to reach those speeds?
mpa324: I just got this setup,i cannot get 300mbps for wireless how can you get
that,i have it all settings with wpa2 aes.
dyrokudobane: Wireless N unless your computer doesn't have a wifi card that can handle N.
They go from a, b, g, & n with the first being the worst & the last being
xRickyVI: can someone help me? my modem(exactly like this one) works perfectly but
from time warner cable i have turbo but im only going up to 10 download
speed but im supposed to get 20 download speed. is there a way to increase
the box speed?
Anthony Marquart: Why pay their lease on " Their " equipment ; unless its temporarily , but
JadedSaints: Good review of the wireless capability. Thank you.
