Looking at the main board reveals a smattering of components, including some RAM, a flashable ROM, the cable tuner module and a few Ethernet support components. So, in 2 weeks I was already forced to powercycle? I’ve had it attached to my router for about 2 weeks now and I’ve already had a “fail”. It has that same simple to connect interface. I was on hold for about a million years as I made the mistake of underestimating the sheer number of people who become unhappy when they cannot watch pay-per-view wrestling. It works flawlessly and I have even seen a noticeable speed increase.

Today Augustthey seem to be handing out Arris modems.

I recently purchased one of these as second unit in case my primary gets struck by lightning, which happened to my neighbor a few weeks ago. The first few always seem to bear a January date, but that’s not too surprising considering that there is no built in real-time clock or backup battery.

Greyghost | Linksys BEFCMU10 Cable Modem Review

Which brings us to do the other interesting aspect— What’s Inside. I’m not sure how hackable this thing is, as I’m sure that both Linksys and the cable companies have put some roadblocks in the way to stop people from doing things they should not be doing with the linksyx cable TV network.


For the longest time, I did rent my cable modem from the cable company and it worked well enough. Linksys doesn’t even give you that much. The lowest-priced brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging where packaging is applicable.

It’s design is very similar to other Linksys branded units. You cannot reboot the modem from the web interface.

Befcmk10 one I’m current using was purchased new in and still going strong. Broadcom’s documentation in particular indicates that a Linux based firmware implementation is what they would recommend.

Show less Show more. I wanted a modem of my own and not have to rent from the cable company anymore.

This is a great concept long overdue. Sometimes you can make a repair, although the highly integrated nature of the modem’s internals may rule out all but the simplest modsm. Because people have asked, this is mostly educated guessing. The worst part—in my experience—was calling the cable company.

There are actually lots of cable modems to choose from on the market.

When you’ve been on a dial-up ISP long enough—especially if that dial-up ISP was the modsm service out there, and yet still not the fastest or most reliable— anything is an improvement. This item doesn’t belong on this page. This modem coupled with Comcast provides so-so download speeds and fairly good reliability with VPN connections.


Even when yours is hopelessly obsolete, it will probably still work just fine IF you can find something to connect it to. Early units would look for a source of instructions via TFTP on any of their network interfaces. I was working on my wireless laptop, put it aside and when I opened it again 15 minutes later I couldn’t get connected to the internet.

It has cble same simple to connect interface. Definitely get a cable modem of your own if you have cable internet. Compact Design, with a “Do it all” attitude This is the first I have seen of a Modem, wireless, and router all-in-one package. There’s not much to say Skip to main content. Otherwise, this modem is easy to use, the lights are easy to read and the modem lays flat right under the router.

And likewise can be mounted on a wall or seated in a couple positions on your desktop. So what else is there to explore? Easy installation, and reliable. So, in 2 weeks I was already forced to powercycle?
