    I figured it out: please ignore this post unless you are having similar problems. Answer in post 2.


    Just got Time Warner's "Wideband" (55MbpsDn/5Up), modem: "Motorola SURFboard Wireless Cable Modem Gateway". (WiFi on the modem off at my request).
    Short version: Works when I connect Ethernet to a Mac, Network: using DHCP.

    Does not work with my Airport Extreme, using the setting left over from my last attempt at Verizon DSL:
    Internet Connection (tab): Connect Using: Ethernet
    Connection Sharing: Off (Bridge Mode)

    TCP/IP (tab): Configure IPv4: DHCP

    Never picks up an address from DHCP. Maybe I simply never did the right dance with powering up/down Airport Extreme/Cable modem.

    Does anyone have a similar setup and can tell me what setting they are using on their Airport? Any and all help immeasurably appreciated!
    Time Warner's customer support was singularly unhelpful.

    Is TWC rolling out DOCSIS 3.0 in select regions, or nationally? We're still stuck with a RR Turbo capped at 1Mbps upload. I'd love the 5+ upload apparently possible with the D3 system.

    Have you checked that it is not available in your neck of the woods? It has been available in all of New York City for a while now, but if I hadn't heard about it on the NY Times Tech Talk podcast I never would have known about it -- TWC is simply not promoting, more like keeping it secret. No idea why -- maybe they don't have the backbone capacity to handle mass adoption.

    You'd thing they'd be hammering Verizon with it, considering that FIOS isn't available outside of brand new buildings in most of Manhattan (and likely the story isn't better in the other boroughs).
