So I'm getting the T3200m modem installed as I'm upgrading to the internet 100.

I was unable to find in detail the tech specs and details of this modem as Telus does not include a user manual.

So can anyone tell me your experience with this modem and all the settings it has available.

I heard of the band steering and does that work good?

Thanks

There are several hundred settings. My suggestion is to review the options and come back with questions regarding your particular setup.

Do you have this modem? If so what are the best settings for the best performance to get the best speeds available?

I have mine on the default settings with the exception I turned off band steering. Works very well for me and speeds are higher than what my plan is advertised to be. (25/5 but I get nearly 30/7)

Is band steering not good? I heard this modem has it but should I just keep the two bands separate?

Band steering has caused issues for many users who used it. Most keep it Off, or we bridge and use our own routers. Band steering works better on non Actiontec devices, which seems to be a firmware/software issue on the 3200.

Default settings. Most information sources cannot provide data to you as fast as you can consume it.  High speed data is more about fulfilling the demands of a number of consumers on your connection, rather than supplying one with blistering speeds.
