Motorola has provided some of the first Cable modems and still sells them under the General Instruments name.

Toshiba has a site, which includes Europe, Global worldwide.  I use the Toshiba PCX1100U and is much better that the one I had before.

Their Link is :http://www.toshiba.com/

General Intruments/Motorola modems are the most widely used by the Cable provider I work for.  The Toshibas may work just as well but are not what we normally recommend.  Too many issues and not enough vendor support for these products.  
Check with yoyur provider as they may have certain modems they will and will not support.  I would see if they support this brand as they have been the most reliable in the field.  http://www.gi.com/noflash/surfboard.html

Hi pbessman, you are correct that Motorola is very good, but as my installations go, I chose the Toshiba, because of excellent support and is already XP ready, plus it is USB or RJ45 ports.  The only reason i did choose the Toshiba is, it's the one Time Warner uses the most.  I have tested both and D-Link, and all three were nearly the same in through put, so I suppose which one is avaialble in his/her area.  

Just about everything else I own wireless is Motorola or Intel.

Just a thought.  Probably a dead qustion anyway.  :-)

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

mtdzgl to my knowledge, the older versions on the NT partitioning (NTFS) did not perform well, if not at all.  Windows 2000 supports USB, as does the new Winodws XPPro, but to be honest, I still trust the Cat 5 calbles.

The Toshiba PCX1100U supports both USB and Standard Cable and will work with Cable, DSL, and ASDL.  The modem is very to program as well.  To configure it, turn on the modem after it is wired up with your ASDL, open your browser and in the URL space, clear it and type 192.168.1.1 and you will see a login screen, all you need to type in there is your user name  and the password is always *admin* and you can set the modem up any way you like.

When you are done, re-boot and you on line.  I must mention your Lan card, and tcp/ip, set properties in the TCP/IP to DHCP, that is all that needs to be there, and make sure you are using *Client for Microsoft Network*
