4 out of 5 eggsGood device

Pros: Easy to use web interface and the basic features I'd expect for a home network are available here. Fast speeds. Running strong for five months now.

Cons: WiFi signal is on the weaker side, not the device for a large home

2 out of 5 eggsAs reliable as a Hugo

Pros: Boots up fast for a modem
Speed is OK

Cons: Lasted a little over a year.
My Zoom modem that ran very hot lasted twice as long.
Can't anyone make a reliable modem?

Other Thoughts: It didn't last long, it's constantly re-booting and takes forever to re-boot. I use on my own Cooler Master case build and have it on top of my top 200mm cooling fan, so it stays very cool. Maybe it needs to be hot? Who knows..

I guess I'll try another brand.

5 out of 5 eggs(Motorola) ARRIS SBG6580 SURFboard Cable Modem

Pros: I ordered this modem early on a Monday morning and it was delivered the next day, Tuesday afternoon. I was extremely pleased with the speedy process and the excellent quality of the item. With free shipping and paying $119.99 for the modem made this my choice for replacing an older modem.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: A friend recommended this cable modem to me and I would also recommend it to others wanting a good modem. I didn't see the word "Arris" on this item when I received it, but Motorola is good enough for me and it works great. (Chase)

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than expected

Pros: Has both 2.4 and 5.8 ghz wireless transceivers. As it states it has 8 downstream, and 4 upstream channels built in. I have 4 computers and sometimes 1 to 4 other devices connected at the same time, and I have never noticed a drop in performance when I game online. It was easy to setup and configure.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend this Gateway router.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: -Easy to set-up and use
-Seems pretty fast and reliable

Cons: -Gets pretty hot

Other Thoughts: Bought mine used elsewhere and it works great. It does get pretty hot and I tend to keep things like these in the open anyway. I haven't used the wifi at all since I prefer a wired connection so I can't comment on how good that works. If you have problems keep calling your ISP because it's likely a problem on their end. I had some connectivity issues early on but worked it out by calling them and having them check on it on their end.

5 out of 5 eggsIs working well now that I replaced my wireless desktop USB unit.

Pros: Easy to set up; easy to use. Strong signal strength; fast.

Cons: Didn't work very well with my wireless Netgear WNDA3100v3 in a desktop unit. Fine for a few hours, then would go into slow funk mode, requiring a restart of the SBG6580 to restore reasonable internet speeds. Switched to a TP-Link TL-WN722N unit from Newegg and the SBG6580 is now faster than greased lightning.

Other Thoughts: There are other good Arris models but this one can be a fine value vs. renting from your cable provider. Be sure to investigate problems thoroughly; I never imagined the Netgear unit would cause so much trouble, but it sure did.

4 out of 5 eggsOlder motorola version

Pros: Worked well for the few years I had it. Moved to another cable provider so had to stop using it.

Cons: Connecting wifi devices (like a printer) was a bit of a pain

1 out of 5 eggsMeh. There's better out there. Get one of those instead.

Pros: It works in a pinch. But i don't know for how long.

Hooked up to comcast without issue.

Cons: Modem gets very hot. Even in a cool place and not enclosed.
Power adapter gets hot.

Wireless drops connection often.
Modem is NOT dual band. It's 2.4 OR 5ghz. Not both at once.
It must be manually switched in the config.

Wireless range is terrible in both bands. Literally half the distance of my old modems.

Wired ports CLAIM they support 10/100/1000. But i can't get it to work in 1000 with other products i KNOW work in 1000 because they worked fine with my old modems.

The wireless button pairing (wps) button needs to be really smashed hard to make it work.

The config is terrible. It's almost a complete copy of the functions (and bugs) in my 10 year old linksys cable modem/router.

Firewall functions cause massive lag and must be disabled.

I'm sure there's some complaints i'm forgetting. And some i will find in the comming weeks until my other mfg modem is replaced.

Bottom line is... If you have no other choice. This will work. But that's the best thing i can say about it.

Other Thoughts: I bought this modem retail due to my (other mfg) one failing suddenly.

Fluke failure. They'll likely replace it no problem i hope. But in the meantime i needed a modem.
This motorola was the only one i could find on short notice that was an all in one modem/router/wireless.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's simple

Pros: Having a cable modem with built in wireless and not having to buy both, saves me about $12/month compared to renting one from my cable provider, Time Warner. Works great! Was very easy to set up too.

Cons: None so far
