Delivering high-speed, stable Internet connectivity, the Linksys CM3016 Cable Modem is meant for Internet plans of up to 250 Mbps.* Optimize your Internet service and enjoy strong Wi-Fi to simultaneously stream media, enjoy online games, and browse the web. This modem is certified by all major cable providers, including Comcast Xfinity, Time Warner, Cox, and Charter, saving you the cost of monthly modem rental fees. Plus, the simple plug-and-play setup makes switching from your old, outdated modem quick and easy.
Get the most out of your existing cable broadband connection with 16 download and 4 upload bonded channels and DOCSIS 3.0 standard certification that ensure high-bandwidth transfer rates over existing cable lines at speeds of up to 686 Mbps.** The CM3016 is powered by an Intel Puma 6 chipset for high-speed downstream and upstream performance.
Note: Cable customers with Internet speeds above 250 Mbps should use the Linksys CM3024 Cable Modem. If your Internet service plan is 100 Mbps or less, then the Linksys CM3008 Cable Modem is recommended.
Installing your Linksys CM3016 Cable Modem is quick and easy and does not require a CD. Simply plug the modem into a power source.
Then use the coaxial cable to plug the modem into the wall jack.
Then connect an Ethernet cable from the modem to your Wi-Fi router.
*250 Mbps is the maximum throughput you can achieve with the Internet plan provided by your cable service provider. Actual throughput could be lower than 250 Mbps as this throughput is dependent on your contract with your cable service provider.
**686 Mbps based on DOCSIS 3.0 throughput. Maximum speed varies depending on the service provided by the cable operator. IPv6 availability is dependent upon your ISP or service provider providing IPv6 capability.
Speed references are provided, marketed, and sold by your broadband service provider and not Linksys. Actual performance, including network speed and data throughput rate, may vary. Performance depends upon many factors, conditions, and variables, including products used, number of users accessing the Internet, type of traffic generated by each user (interactive browsing versus video streaming), interference, and other adverse conditions. Actual data throughput will be lower than that indicated and may depend on the mix of products used and external factors.

My son landed in the hospital and I have not got to fully test it. I would like to see more cat 5 connection on it. It looks good. Will give you new review at a later time Thank You
Easy to install
from Laguna Niguel, CA, United States
Had to contact my internet provider after completing the install, as they have to update their system to recognize the new modem. Initial install requires a direct modem to computer hard wire be to do the setup, then you can go wireless.

need to know the product well be4 purchase am from east africa
Replaced my cable company router.
Like many, I decided to replace my cable company modem and save money. Glad I did. My Linksys CM3016 was a good choice in moderate priced units and serving me well. Called my IP to switch over following their instructions and installation went seamlessly. This is a new model and wasn't in my IP's list of compatible modems but it works just fine. I did have to update my wireless router to recognize the modem but that was easy to do. Speed seems to be just fine for my use and no downgrade from the IP's modem. Good choice.
LINKSYS CM3016 16X4 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
from Iowa, United States
Had the modem for a month now. Easy setup w/a call to MediaCom to give them the MAC address. Setup total w/call 10 min. Quick start guide provided. Has never dropped carrier with being on 24 hrs. a day. Nice to have an ethernet cable (approx 3.5 ft.) included in the box. Some minor negatives: foot print is about 1 1/2 times larger than the supplied Motorola modem by MediaCom. Would be nice to have an on/off switch. LED lights could be a little larger and brighter. All in all an excellent modem for my home use that I would recommend to anyone looking to purchase or as an upgrade to your home or small office network.
Linksys model CM3016--Easy setup and works great!
from Western New York
I received the modem through Linksys Friends And Family for review. Replaced my Motorola SB6141 with the Linksys, setup was almost plug and play, although I did have to make one phone call to my internet provider to activate. I use some websites that are a real bore to navigate (scroll down and wait) not with the Linksys it seems to have solved this problem. I am very pleased with this CM3016 and think it is well worth what they ask for it.
10 Minutes and I was up and running!
from Kentucky, United States
The Linksys CM 3016 comes nicely packaged with a quick-start guide that is very understandable and easy to follow. I did need to give the product information to my service provider, but the entire process only took about 10 minutes and everything is working great! I don't know why I waited so long to get my own modem and eliminate the monthly equipment charge.
