    Well, aren't they just going to give you another one of the same model? I'm guessing you are renting the modem from the cable company, right? Or are you going to buy one?

    renting yes.
    I have a choice between that 'RCA' one
    and Surfboard.
    just thought I'd get some opinion's.. ;)

    If Comcast has given you a choice I would go with the Surfboard. Why? Just based on comments from users on the Comcast forum at Broadband Reports.

    My impression is that people generally have reported less satisfaction with RCA's or at least a definite preference for the Surfboard, FWIW. People mention the diagnostics available with the Surfboard. Which is why I'd want one if my COM21 that ATTBI gave me ever conks out. Dunno about the RCA.

    Anyway, in addition to the Comcast forum at BBR there are also a cable users forum (not ISP specific) which seems to have questions regrarding cable modems and also a cable modem (hardware) forum. You can see what forums are available here: Browse around and see if there's anything that addresses your question. Perhaps you can find more specific comparative info at one of these forums. (You don't have to register to post, btw.)

    edit: Just really looked at your nick. Haven't I seen you at BBR Security forum? Well my suggestion still goes but if my recollection is correct, then I guess you're already somewhat familar with BBR. Don't mind me, I'm just spacing out after a long day. ;)
