Anyways, I did notice some things about the new modem. It is *much* smaller than the original one. It is actually less massive than the power wart (on the right) that it comes with. I also saw that I get a new address range 70.113.33.X versus 24.?.?.X.
Update: I have also noticed that the receive light is always on. It is like the cable company is always trying to communicate with the LinkSys box.
