[quotemsg=10408538,5,665924]One question, when you upgradrd your line did the ISP install any new hardware in your home (ie a modem)? What kind of hardware are you using now (modem and router), do they support the new bandwidth?[/quotemsg]
Well its not that new but they replaced my modem (forgot which model was the old one) and my router (which I bought). The telephony modem is an ARRIS Model TM822G DOCSIS 3.0 capable of 343 mbps downstream (Theoretical) and 122 mbps upstream (Theoretical). The LAN port (correct me if im wrong) is 10/100/1000 mbps. Since this modem was capable of gaining 300+mbps I tried to attempt to changed the WAN to 300 mpbs but no luck so far as it's locked onto 100 mbps. My guess is that Optimum does it to cap your speed. As for the router, they replaced my WNR3500L with an WNDR3700. The weird part is that my WNR3500L range capability was better than WNDR3700. Though it's a replacement router what can you complain about? My entire cabling is CAT 5E which is good for gigabit Ethernet but pretty much useless to me as the family doesn't use LAN as much. Everything on my end supports gigabit but I've made another post questioning a few points on which got me confused. My other post basically questions what happens if I were to change the WAN to 300mbps if its even possible with this modem? As for the bandwidth, I not really so sure if its supported but most of the hardware they changed seem to be decent to top of the line. The router is decent but the modem is pretty new i guess considering its DOCSIS 3.0.
