What is the best modem to connect to the internet via VPN?


This is a known issue with that modem and Comcast wont support VPN from residential installations. If you want to change modems that don't have this issue, get a Motorola surfboard. If you want to change settings on the one that you have because of the protocols for assignment of addresses let me know

This modem will work with Comcast High Speed Internet.

I recently purchase comcast internet and cable. I have a motorola surfboard SB5101U cable modem and when I try 2 connect my xbox to xboxlive, it says that my network doesn't have a sufficient MTU setting....


You actually should call comcast and tell them about the issue, They have a backdoor into your modem that they can troubleshoot it for you. The issue with their modems is they are usually locked with some weird password they use.

Usually with a modem or router you can dial an internal page but there system like Time Warner is set to their needs so that they can keep that back-door open.

Comcast phone number is 1-800-266-2278 or 1-800-Comcast same numbers thats just the way they word it on their site.
