RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

modem - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

What is the difference between an expensive cable modem and a cheap cable modem? I recently bought an Xbox 360 and I am tired of moving my cable modem between my computer and my xbox. I have an Motorola SB5120 right now. Will I notice any difference in online game play between the modem I have now and a cheap or older model modem? Any recomendations?

I'd say any cable modem made in the last 10 years will easily handle the fastest speed your cable provider can deliver. We get pretty crappy baud rates here in the US. If you were in S. Korea where they typically are in the 15-20 mbps baud rate you might have to be concerned, but not here. You can get something really cheap on eBay. Jusy look up the moel number and make sure it can do 6 mbps or so and you'll be covered. The Motorola SB5120 is rated at 30.
