how do i upgrade from my smc router/modem to the cisco?
Convience and employee you need one (features in the Cisco that aren't in the SMC?), and they should exchange it.
Are you having any trouble with your SMC at the moment sbestabrooks?
I'd be happy to help.
the SMC is not very accommodating. The wireless connection shows no errors but the web pages come up as unavailable.
the 3 apple products I have don't connect to the internet with any stability.
however I just had a tech in to correct some bad TV cabling and discussed whats coming in the spring; A new dual band wireless modem/router. I am thinking of waiting for that and upgrading then. currently I use a Cisco EA4500 bridged from the SMC and have not had any issues I can't correct.
The EA4500 is a good router, I wouldn't worry about replacing your SMC with the Cisco, or worrying about what new modem Shaw is coming out with... Having full control over your Linksys will likely be better for you than Shaw's locked down settings
