Hey guys, I was just wondering if I can keep my network wired if I were to upgrade my modem from the docsis 2 DPC2100 to the new docsis 3 modem. I do not want go wireless in my home.
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
Why do you want to upgrade to a docsis 3 modem? Will it give you faster download speeds?
What speeds are you getting now with Express and the DPC2100? (using speedtest.net? I always use Fibrenoire in Montreal, for reference... from Ottawa.)
Will you rent or buy a docsis 3 modem?
I can confirm, at least myself, where i live... that upgrading to a D3 modem, did increase my speeds.
Not only speedtests (which really are not true speed tests due to the speed boost).
But i overall have noticed increased speed in general.. as well as when downloading multiple files.
In the past.. say downloading 3 files, same source, i would max about 150k/s on each.
When i downloaded with the D3 recently, same source, was pulling between 200-300k/s.
Myself.. i rent.. all my rogers equipment.
Yes.. after 2 years, i will be paying MORE than someone who bought it.
But in the past.. i just dont trust the equipment... my father in law went through 3 surfboard modems.
The rogers cable boxes.. i had 5 8300's..
If i had bought these things.. i would be out ALOT of money, having to buy them after the warranty is out.
I went out last evening and upgraded to the Cisco DCP3832... I am very happy with this modem!! So, the SA DCP2100 I had really is a piece of junk that needed replacing. Again, Im wired, so I don't know how the wireless performs.
For wired gamers: It's the best Call of Duty experience I've had since the original Modern Warfare, when I used to have the Motorola Surf Board.
