No Problems with DPC3000 & Comcast

I've been using the the DPC3000 with Comcast for over 6 months with no problems at all.
FYI, we are Internet users only, we don't have Comcast cable or phone service and we've been leasing the modem because I heard that their were going to be network upgrades and sure enough Comcast rolled out their DOCSIS 3.0 service. The DPC3000 cane as a free swap from Comcast. I called and got it 3 days later (I returned the old one to local Comcast office).
The only problem I encountered was due to my ancient Linksys BEFSR41 wired router. The comm chipset in the Linksys was so old that it wasn't designed for the kind of throughput that was coming down the wire from Comcast and the Cisco DOCSIS 3.0 DPC3000 Cable Modem DPC-3000, and it wouldn't sync up any faster than approx 5mbs (though it did work)! Once I replaced it *, I've been bumping along along at approx 18-20mbs. Quite a jump from the 6-8mb I had been getting before and NO cost increase, though it's still not cheap. Since it was installed the DPC3000 has been trouble free. Zero problems.
* FYI: I bought a Netgear N600 WNDR3700 router , which has been performing extremely well.
