about 23Mbps/7Mbps. I switched to Digital Voice a few years ago and have =

$50 then Comcast upgraded it to an SB5100 free. I don't know the=20
difference between the SB4100 and the SB5100. I do know that the SB5100=20
is 100baseT where the 4100 is 10baseT. Some forums say that the 5100 is=20
more stable, but then there is some discussion about the 5120. My=20
