Mark,

     I certainly wasn't trying to be flip or short and for that I 
apologize.  To answer the specific question on a CPE that depends both 
on what kind of access network you're connecting to as well as if its a 
service provider installed/supported device or one that a technical end 
user can support him/herself as those are very different use cases.

The point I am trying to communicate is that CPE issue not simple, 
straightforward, or cheap because in almost all of the non-DOCSIS cases 
we're looking at forklift upgrades.
