On the modem topic. I upgraded from a 6 year old docsis 2.0 modem to a Motorola Surfboard docsis 3.0 modem. My ISP is Charter and consistently get 15-30 down and 2-3 up.
I would notice that my old modem would reset itself 2-3 times per night during heavy traffic (FaceTime streaming to Apple TV, large torrent downloads, etc...) so I decided to go to 3.0.
On speedtest.net, my ping is now about 10-15 ms when before it varied between 30-60 ms. Is this all due to my new 3.0 modem? If so, I think I definitely noticed it last night while playing BF3. I seemed to win WAY more one on one duels.... could this be due to 20-30 ms bump in ping? Or could it be due to the fact that I was drinking Union Jack IPA and in the zone?
My xbox is hard-wired to an Apple Airport extreme N wireless router.
