SMC have very good cable modems and they are very cost effective.  Some 
tech support people have said that having a mixture of SMC and other 
brands can cause some problems,  the SMC keeps resending the signal and 
therefore slows down the network.  It may have been a few isolated cases 
rather than being a true pattern.

What happened to the Best Data cable modem?  Even though Cox doesn't 
actually support it, mine works great.  Cox can't control (limit the 
bandwidth) some cable modems as well as others.  The Toshiba and the 
Surfboard are the easiest for them to limit the speed with.
