This is a thread to discuss the modems on the Bad Model main list. Please restrict postings here to additions or questions on why a device is listed. If you have a device thats not on the list, provide proof it has a Intel Puma chip powering it.

<b> If you have found a device that is wrongly put on this list and has a Broadcom chip in it. Please send me a PM right away with proof its a Broadcom device and I will remove it.</b>

Is the DTG1682G, the same as the TG1682G gateway leased by Comcast? I do not find DTG1682G in the DSLR hardware list, but the TG1682G is on the list: https://www.dslreports.com/hardware/ARRIS-TG1682-h4006 and it is Puma6

Hi,
I saw two images at your front "Testing" topic and I curious why you state that a picture at right is wrong.

There is a statement at "Cable Modem Puma 6 test" result page "Excess red is a concern if most measurements are 50ms or less" and there are red marks at 100 ms and above on your picture at right.
Thank you.

P.S. and also one more question how to upload a picture(s) from a local computer?

Any RED seen on the puma tool test page isn't good. Should be ALL GREEN or some Yellow mixed in with GREEN. NO RED!

Use a site like IMGBB.com or a photo file server site that supports and gives BBFORUM links to the photos you want to post here.

Use the attachment option, locate your pic file on the computer, click the place in-line and post. You need to use the full editor to do this.

How about NETGEAR CM500-1AZNAS (bought from Amazon, ASIN B06XH46MWW). I couldn't find if it has Intel Puma or Broadcom through internet search or on Netgear website datasheet. (only a deal website had a claim saying it is Broadcom, but I want to confirm from a more reliable source).

If it's not listed here, it's not effected.
app.php/badmodems
The CM-500 is an older generation modem 2015 era. Maybe early Puma 4 or 5 if it's an intel. Could be a Ti chip set as well however not sure.
