It uses the new DOCSIS 2.0 encoding. This is a great improvement. My old D-link would connect at around 3 MB/s. My new D-link with the new encoding connects at almost 5 MB/s. Just make sure your cable company supports it.
Buy/lease? Your choice. Two factors to consider. If you buy you're on your own if you have problems. If you lease you will get tech support.
I don't recommend using the USB connection.

Switching over from dial-up to cable internet and was wondering if it matters which cable modem you use are they pretty much universal. I found this Motorola Surfboard SB5120 cable modem with a standby switch and was wondering if I could use it. Thinking of just buying my own instead of leaseing from cable company.
