(XB3) Cisco DPC3941T vs. Arris TG1682G

Which XB3 do you guys prefer after owning one or the other?

 

I recently swapped out the highly reputable Arris TM822G paired with an Asus RT-AC68U router and decided to move on after how many years and picked up a Cisco DPC3941T due to the upgraded channel bonding. Of course I bridged as well with the Asus RT-AC68U. But, I want to know your thoughts and experiences on either or. After researching both XB3's, I did notice that the Cisco is 24 x 4 and Arris is 24 x 8. Anyone with the Arris have all 8 upstream channels unlocked? I was thinking of swapping out my Cisco for the Arris but I want your guys' input.

 

For anyone wondering,

I am on the Preferred Triple Play with the California Grandfathered Blast! 150/10 add-on. Soon to be on Blast! Pro.

 

Thanks.

No Comcast systems have more than 4 upstream, and many have 3.  You won't know any differance between the two, I'd stick with the Cisco.

 

Even 20 up works fine on 3 upstreams.

 

Your going to drive yourself crazy checking the channels every week thinking it's going to magically go to 8 upstreams, and more downstreams like 20, 24, 32.

Yep. It is practically not possible for cable operators to offer any more than 4 upstream channel's with the current low / high spectrum split (5 to 45 Mhz) bandwidth allocation that exists.

Can you post an update on your experience with the Arris modem. Were you having any particular problems with the Cisco? I have the Cisco and I can't get to the admin page to make adjustments. (10.0.0.1) Were you having the same problem with the Cisco? Are you having the problem with the Arris? Thanks

I've had the Arris TG1682G and had no problems with it besides the wireless wasn't strong enough the reach the last room in our apt. but I have a linksys router that I've flashed with DD-WRT which would reach 2 blocks away. I only had it for 6 months and it started to act up and ComCast said I qyalified for a speed upgrade (from 25Mbps to 200Mbps) and it comes with a Cisco Systems DPC3941T. Gett'n it tomarrow (WooHoo) I'm excited to try it out and see how well it works....I'm a big Cisco fan and really wanna check it out. If it's not any good I'd like to get an ASUS AC-88U but with my budget I'm look'n at a TP-Link N300.
