This question already has an answer here:
I'm considering getting a new cable modem. Doing some research I found myself on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DOCSIS. I'm wondering if it's worth the extra $30-40 for my home network to go ahead and get version 3.0 instead of 2.0.
The table on this page refers to
number of channels that hardware must be able to support. Is this referring to my router and network card?
