I think you'll find its the 250 mate
sure if u dont mind loosing a few hair on the 1st one after that its extrmely ez, depends which area ur (pure ntl/tw) a motorola 41/4200i can be quite ez if it doesnt have lock firmware all u would need is ethernet cable and away u go but a 250 is way cheaper

250 as you don't have to solder and to change mac you do it with mac changer thru ethernet, no need to change ip settings or disconnect the feed

4100i, 4200i, 4100e or 4200e, if you live in TW or Pure N*L.

If you ive in EXCW, the 4100e or 4200e

With the 4XXX model Moto's you normaly wont even need to open them just connect your ethernet lead, providing you don't get one with locked firmware. If you are unlucky enough to buy a locked model then you will need to use either a Max232/233 or a Blackcat cable.

For more info click the link in my signature and download the Haynes in PDF format.

I was just looking at fleabay and found a SB4200 with splitter and cables. Is it necessary to keep a subbed modem online in the same way you keep subbed stb online?

Sorry forgot the link.

So what you are really saying is that this seller selling the splitter and cables with modem doesn't really know what he is doing? BTW GENTLEX thanks for answering so many of my dumb questions.
