👤Wow! What a change! Tech came to the house and could not find any problems with the line, but he told me my 7 month old routers was garbage, and I looked up a dual band routers, which was Amazons Choice. Same day delivery! I went through setup with my internet service provider and within 10 minutes I went from 15-20 Mbps to 200mbps with no issues for the last 72 hours. I was impressed with the range and availability of this mix. I was looking for a cheaper option, but I found this unit that has a 5G wireless option, and it's even better on the other side of the house. I was so impressed by the first review I have ever written, that I decided to log on to Amazon and write it in the middle of streaming. Same day delivery for a super buy? I am a fan.
👤This is the modem for you. You can launch your browser by hooking up to it with an Ethernet cable. A screen will show up in a minute, and you are done in a few minutes. I changed my password and sign on to my previous one and all my devices were ready to go. Rental fees are no longer charged.
👤I try to avoid modem/wireless combo. I made an exception because of the reviews and ease of only having one device and after 2 and a half months, the wireless signal on the router has degraded to the point where I'll be returning the device. The signal degraded 20 days outside of the return period so I picked up the protection plan. When I purchased the modem/router, I was getting between 140 and 150 mbps on 5 GHz and 40-50 mbps on 2.4 GHz on a 200mbps connection. It was expected that apartments have a lot of congestion. The issue isn't on the internet service provider but the computer that I have hard-wired to it. I purchased a protection plan for the device, but tonight has pushed me to the point where I'm going to use it. I'm getting 70-90 mbps on 5 GHz and 20mbps on 2.4 GHz at 5 feet away. At 30 feet away, my signal is around 30 mbps on 5 GHz and 900 kBps on 2.4 GHz. There is an update on 9-21. When I got a new router, the download speeds were better than they were when I wrote the review. If frequent resets are required to maintain adequate speed, will update.
👤The coverage for my 2,500 square foot house is great, it works perfectly without being located near the center of the house, and several items using the internet, without any issues: two computers, one laptop, 2 cellphones, one tablet, two firesticks, an Apple device. I'm very happy with the equipment, no more dead spots inside the house, and good coverage outside, with two concrete blocks wall between my phone and the modem.
👤Wow. I got this because people said it boosted their speeds a bit. The picture was plugged in and up and running in no time. I think I ran at 200. Let's see how it handles streaming devices. It is worth it in my opinion... I was charged $10 a month for their rental, but it will pay for itself in a year.

👤The modem is certified by our internet provider, and we purchased it because of it's high ratings. The cable modem was easy to set up and use. The internet signal has been malfunctioning. After talking to the internet technicians, it appears the modem is not compatible with the company. We are stuck with a modem that can't be used because it has been over 60 days. I submitted this review to help other buyers.
👤I use the internet as a power user. When I use it, I expect it to be there. The units of the internet service provider were flaky. After changing their unit four times, they finally said that there needs to be a better solution to intermittent equipment. Can't say enough nice things about the unit that I bought. It works better than the units of the internet service provider. Nice. It pays itself in one year. Thanks for making a quality product.
👤There is a huge hole in the security of this modem, because the ISP can change the default admin password, thus denying you access to its configuration settings. The customer support of the company was aware of the issue and knew exactly what my internet service provider had done. It makes sense that they need to give the ISP access to the firmware during the provisioning stage. When the modem is hard/factory reset, the admin password should be stored in read-only memory, which should be accessed by holding down the reset button for 10 seconds. A factory reset only resets the password to the modified value. My internet service provider deserves ire for their actions, but they should also be criticized for allowing them to hijack their customers' personal property. I would not have been able to set my modem's security settings if my modem customer support hadn't known what my ISP had changed to. It would have left me open to attacks if I wasn't able to change my passwords. Should my internet service provider feel like it, they can re-provision my modem at any time, change my admin password to something else, and brick my modem - at least as far as protecting my security goes. When employees who have physical access to the modem should not be allowed to arbitrarily reset the password, I am aware that there may be instances when entities want to change what the default factory-reset admin password is. It's not something that most end- users of this product would be affected by, and it's an option to consider in a high-end commercial model. Changing the default factory reset admin password should require physical access to the modem if that is required. It should not be possible to remotely change the password from outside the device's local intranet.
👤The unit that was replaced with the Xfinity one works great. The signal is better at all points in the house because of the speed improvements. It's simple to setup. It was about 15 minutes to get up and run. After 17 months, I can start saving money on my capital investment. Change all the default passwords for theLAN and admin of theRouter if you log into it. Do not call them. You can register online. Go to the internet and open up your browser, and you will see a registration screen. Have your account number ready.
DOCSIS 3.0 has 24x faster download speeds than DOCSIS 2.0. Cox and Spectrum have speeds up to 150Mbps. It is comparable with major cable internet providers. Not compatible with any of the above providers. Fast internet performance. Medium sized homes with an AC1200 speed can get simultaneous dual-band coverage. Monthly rental fees can be saved. You can save up to $168/yr in equipment rental fees if you replace your cable modem. Fast wired connections to your computer, printer, game box, storage drive, and other devices can be made with two Gigabit Ethernet ports and a single USB port.
👤There is a big warning for this product. This is not like other modem devices, where you type in the address and it takes you to the settings of the device. You have to register with NETGEAR to be able to log into your modem after you log into the router. The internet is connected to this secondary system. If you don't have internet on the device, you can't access the settings. I don't know who designed this, but most of the time someone is using this to change the password, port forward, or provide diagnostic information to their internet service provider, it's to access the private address for their modem. It's beyond me why this modem has a log in system that requires online access to operate. I have found out that you can't stop the 2ndary log in. It's on permanently. There is a I was hung up on when I tried to get information about this router. Trying to work with this device on a networking level was very frustrating. Get a SURFboard instead of this device.
👤I chose this product because it has a preferred product for Xfinity. I would have gone with another product if I had known that it would take hours to set it up. 1) It took three apps to set up the model for me. I had to spend another $75 for a new Wifi extender because the one that worked with the former Netgear model was no longer suitable. I had to set up an account before anyone at Netgear would help me, and they only offered suggestions like "turn it off and on again." The box's instructions didn't work out. It was clear that I was not focused on the task at hand. I fixed the problem myself, because a cable that wasn't included in the box or mentioned in the set up instructions was required. Everything I was told by the two people I spoke with was incorrect.
👤The device will not connect to the internet and will not hook up to your roots.
👤Don't buy unless you want to waste a lot of time. I have been on the phone with both Netgear and Xfinity for an hour and it does not work. This thing is frightening. I can only use a browser called chrome. It won't let me connect to duck without going through the same admin process. There is a I would give this zero stars or better yet, 10,000 negative stars. It is finally working after about 5 hours. If you want to reset the modem, you should have a PAPER CLIP in your house. You have to call your internet provider back. I almost lost the paperclip when I was told to get it. I do not have a paper clip. I used an earring stud. I made it clear to tech support that the modem was poorly designed and that the process was ridiculous. I don't have to use chrome anymore, I can get on any browser I want. This was the most frustrating thing I have had in a long time. There is a If you have a lot of free time, then you should take it. Don't go to another brand or model if not.
Wireless power boost for better speed and range adds high- performance power amplifier to boost the wireless signals to the legal limit, giving a significant boost in speed and range. AnyBeam beamforming at both 2. 4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies focuses the signal on wireless clients to further enhance performance and range. The backup battery option that allows your phone to make calls for 8 hours after power is lost is not included. It is comparable with major cable internet providers. Not compatible with any of the above providers. It is built for ultimate speed. The best plan for cable provider is up to 6Gbps. Up to 3,000 sq. of fast WIFI 6 performance. The coverage is up to 6Gbps with dual-band wireless. Fast wired connections to your computer, printer, game box, storage drive, and other devices can be made with one of the tile connections. DOCSIS 3.1 and 32x8 channel bonding is Mime Technology.
👤I can't recommend against this modem enough. I almost broke down in tears when I tried to fix the faulty ports on my original one, and I don't cry easily. I'm a college-educated programmer with professional IT experience, but I couldn't get these pieces of crap to work. Two modems in a row were duds because of Netgear's poor quality control. Imagine charging half a grand for a product that you don't know how to make. Trash. It's garbage. It's not better than a paperweight.
👤The product worked well for a couple of weeks, then it stopped connecting to the internet. We decided to connect another modem to see if it worked after we had a cable tech come out and replace the wiring. It did. I spent the last 45 minutes explaining to the guy that he is not authorized to replace the product and will have to transfer me to tech support to do so. I will not buy another product from Netgear.
👤I bought this device because of its features. After waiting 16 days, I received the v2 device. The Hardware Replacement Warranty from Netgear gives you 2 years of replacement. It took me 3 hours to get the address of the C7800 provision associated to my account. On the third day, on 2.4 GHz. No device can associate with the failed SSID. The same problem came up again, I contacted the NetGear tech support, they made me change the channel from 6 to 1 and turn on the beam. Reload is applied changes. The changes have disappeared after 2 weeks of work. The only way to get in touch with Tech Support is via email. 3 weeks of back and forth with boat load of reboots, factory reset and moving the power cables from power strip to wall outlet all on Tech Support instructions. I received an email from Netgear today that said they would be able to give me a repair for a known bug and issue with the c7800 v2 routers. I will either ship a refurbished unit or a new unit if it's available first, based on my own expense, and post the fulfillment center receiving the faulty unit. This is the worst thing a networking manufacturer can do in the times of Pandemic. 3 weeks of wasted time for rotter TECH Support for a known issue and then don't bother shipping a replacement unit with a paid return label for cross ship of the faulty unit. I would have returned the product if the return window had not expired. Shame on you.
👤I wanted a modem-router combo with the latest technology. The Nighthawk CAX80 met all the requirements. The installation of the CAX80 wasn't easy. I could not use the Web to do so. The Nighthawk app can be used to setup a modem, but not a wireless one. Spectrum is my cable company. I have had my internet account with them for more than 20 years. Once you get a live person, their customer service is excellent. They said the modem was working. I couldn't connect to the internet. I called for assistance after I was given a direct number. My modem-router worked perfectly within minutes. They are competent. The modem-router has a less constant signal than the wi-fi one. There is no buffering or pauses when watching video movies. The advertising from Netgear is reliable. So is the performance. I am very pleased with this device and recommend it to others.
Certified by the manufacturer. 1 year is a long time. It's compatible with the Xfinity cable and voice plans. Three-in-one DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem, AC1900 wi-fi router, and 2usb ports. DOCSIS 3.0 has 24x faster download speeds than DOCSIS 2.0. It's ideal for streaming 4K HD videos. There is an optional battery backup for power outages that can last up to 8 hours. There are 2 Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) ports and 4 Gagabit Ethernet ports. System requirements include Microsoft Windows 7, 8, Vista, XP, 2000, Mac OS, and Linux. The browsers that are higher are Microsoft Internet Explorer, Firefox 2.0, or the newer browsers.
👤I'll note first that I'm reviewing the Netgear AC1900 WiFi Cable Modem with two lines of telephone support, as it appears Amazon is grouping reviews of similar products. I paid for it on Amazon. This is not one of the "AC1900" models that are out there. I was paying $10 per month for the cable modem that I bought this to replace. It looks like it will take 28 months before I see a return on my investment. I assume my modem will work for the next two years. It was easy to set up, and once I had my own password and SSID, I called the cable company. The nice lady who spoke English well and was a subscriber to Xfinity was able to get internet and voice telephone working easily, even though she had to send multiple signals to the modem, but it eventually responded and has been working fine ever since. I was surprised that I now have two internet connections in my house, one 2.4 GHz and the other 5.0 GHz. The old 2.4 GHz signal is required by some of my devices, including my printer, Oppo BluRay, and even an older version of the Nexus 7. I have no complaints about using my new cable modem. Installation is easy and the bill is lower. I'm happy.
👤This is a review of a cable modem. I use speedtest.net to measure the internet speed of my service from Comcast Blast. I still found that browsing the web was very interesting, with each new page typically taking less than a second to fully paint, who has time for that?! When I ordered this modem, I assumed that it would improve the performance of my web experience on WIRED connections, but I didn't think so. I was wrong. The difference was immediately apparent when I had this modem up and running. Web pages pop up like TV ads. This will change my life, and I already find myself going deeper into websites because I am not afraid of the slow painting with each new click. The difference in browsing performance seems to be much quicker than the previous 150, even though Speedtest.net is now showing 280+ downloads. I have a modem in one corner of the house, and the signals seem to be faster than I thought. The installation was easy. I just went to xfinity.com and didn't call the station. I was up and running with internet and phone service after just 2 clicks. The administration utility for the routers is easy to use, and seems to have all the capabilities that a technical user might need. I feel like I have jumped 5 years into the future with the new speed of this box. It is worth $300 to me since I will get back my rental fees after 30 months. I discovered that the 'Stream TV' service wouldn't work because their system thought I was not on my home network, so wouldn't show some of the TV Channels. I wasted an hour of my life telling them that they needed to register the MAC addresses. It worked after they did that. The web might not suck anymore, but it still does.
Share a storage drive with any connected device. Not comparable with other providers of voice services. It is comparable with all major cable internet providers. Model C7000 replaces your cable modem and can save you up to $150/yr in equipment rental fees. Check your cable internet service provider website for compatibility, not compatible with cable bundled voice services, Microsoft Windows 7, 8,Vista, XP, 2000, Mac OS, UNIX, or Linux, or a combination of the two. It is built for fast speed. Best for cable provider plans that can reach 400 Mbps. You can get up to 1800 sq ft of wireless coverage and 30 devices connected with AC1900 speed. DOCSIS 3.0 SAFE & SECURE: Includes parental controls, and supports WEP andWPA2 wireless security protocols.
👤I wouldn't buy refurbished items. You have a chance to get 2 bad modems just like I did. The first one worked for 2 weeks and the second for 5 weeks. The reason why this was frustrating was because the second modem was out of the warranty time frame and was already registered to someone else. The technical support guy at Amazon was aware of the issues. My question is: why is Amazon selling modems that are false about being renewed?
👤The nighthawk cable modem worked well. It was easy to set up. The modem has a password that you need to use to access it. Some of the reviews may have been due to not being able to set it up correctly. I've had it for a month. Works well. The internet speed is the same, but the modem is better. The difference is obvious. The day and night are different. Didn't get paid to write about it.
👤If you are looking for the best modem/router in the market today, look no further, the Netgear Nighthawk is the answer. It's easy to install. The equipment is fast.
👤This is a product that has been used before. The unit was not reset back to factory settings and the admin password was not set to default. This locked me out of the router and made it impossible for me to control it. They told me to return the unit and order another one. If the next one has the same issue, I will abandon the'renewed' option and go for the new. The product was completely different when I received the 2nd one. The first one was just a box with a power cable and the second one was almost new. Each component was individually wrapped. The product works perfectly. It seems like a flip of the coin as to what you will get with renewed based on my experience, but the return policy on Amazon makes it easy to return if you get a lemon.
👤The first one wouldn't let me log on, it wouldn't project a signal for me to log onto, and when we contacted customer service, they got us a replacement and that one had the same problem. Don't buy a refurbished modem. Its not worth it.
👤While using multiple devices, the internet does not lag. The current provider has 400mbps.
👤Modem works well most of the time. I lost the wireless signal while working on the computer. I looked at my phone. The internet may not be available next to the icon. The music was played through all the problems. The modem works great out of the box. I live in a small condo and get great signals in each room. I am testing signal on my Fire TV devices and I am getting close to 170-190 Mbps. I would buy this again, instead of renting the modem. I haven't contacted customer support for this modem. You can't take it off once you click on it.
👤The new modem. When you can find a refurbished cheaper device, you shouldn't buy a new one.
DOCSIS 3.0 has 24x faster download speeds than DOCSIS 2.0. There are 3 products in 1: 24x8 DOCSIS. The modem is from the Xfinity brand. It was approved for use with the internet and voice service. Not compatible with any other internet provider. Doesn't support home security or home control service without an internet-enabled device. The cable modem has 24 download and 8 load channels. This product requires a certain internet service. The AC1750 is a routers. A dual-band concurrent wi-fi router with 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports. Certified by the manufacturer. 1 year is a long time.
👤I am not able to express my disappointment with the product or the headaches it caused me. I have been trying to figure it out for the last 3 hours. I thought it was new. It didn't mention that it was being refurbished. It was still registered to a different account when xfinity sorted it out. I was getting zero internet from it when it was fixed, but it was giving xfinity a signal that it was working. This entire process was a huge waste of money and time because I don't have a car and I didn't hear about the internet for three hours. I wouldn't recommend this product.
👤I bought this modem because it has all of the functions I need to replace my modem. The modem is still active and I was unable to get it to work. I bought a new version at 2x the price and hoped it would be less headaches.
👤The item was packaged well and easy to install. It turned out that it was registered under another user's account and so I was not able to add it to my account. Had to return it so time wasted. I am hesitant to work with this vendor again.
👤I spent an entire Saturday on the phone with Tech support from both Arris and Comcast trying to get this piece of junk working. The Arris Gateway was registered in the system of the company that had a problem with it. They were able to read the MAC ID back to me, so I knew it was in their system. I couldn't get the internet to work with my devices. Arris Tech Support couldn't figure out why no device could connect with their Gateway. They never offered to replace it. I'm an Amazon prime member. Don't waste your money or time on this garbage.
👤I want the product replaced since it didn't work and only the option of sending it back to get a refund is available. I will be with out internet since I already got comcast.
👤This purchase was made to save on our monthly charges for an Xfinity provided unit. It was compatible with our requirements for a bundle of internet, phone and modem services. It has met all of our internet needs and we have not had any issues with TV streaming on several devices. The process of setting up was fairly straightforward and the rep was very helpful.
👤It was a smart move to buy this unit and pay it off in 6 months, cutting my bill for the old rental unit. I waited so long.
👤It was important to call Cox/Xfinity to have them recognize the modem. The internet and cable were easy to use. It took them about 15 minutes to get the phone hooked up, but it worked out well.
The cable modem and the router can be combined to create a more reliable connection that can save desk space. The vertical design improves cooling, reduces shelf space, and looks great in any home or office. It is comparable with all major cable internet providers. Not compatible with any of the other providers. Model C6 220 replaces your cable modem and will save you up to 168 dollars a year in equipment rental fees. The speeds by carrier are: Cox up to 150Mbps, Spectrum up to 100Mbps. Get up to 1200 sq ft of wireless coverage and 20 devices connected with AC1200 speed. Fast wired connections to your computer, printer, game box, storage drive, and other devices can be made with 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports and 1USB port.
👤I've always had great luck with netgear products. I thought I could get rid of the router from comcast since it was under 50 bucks. The brass connection that the antennas use was loose, like really loose. I had to tighten them down with a pair of pliers to keep them from tipping over. Installation and setup for a netgear routers was easy, as you'd expect. This and the smooth ordering process with Amazon are the only reasons I didn't give this thing a star. The first picture shows that the device is listed on xfinity's site as an approved device for their 200 Mbps plans. Things went downhill once it was setup. The signal strength was terrible. We were able to use ethernet to see if we could get better speed. The TV, laptop, and Xbox Series X all had terrible speeds. We called netgear support because we were paying for a 200Mbps plan and the internet was fine with our existing modem. They were useless, and after a few calls to different techs we were told that we needed to upgrade the firmware. I've done it many times on other devices. I log into the device in a browser at 192.168.0.1 while I'm on the phone with support and can't find the option to upgrade the firmware anywhere. I was told by the tech that I needed to connect from a phone to the device and use the netgear genie app for the IOS platform. The problem is that the app on my phone can't connect to my router because it's out of date, so I have to go through the hassle of finding our password and download the app on the phone. The tech told me that I needed to contact my internet service provider and that they would push the update to the routers. The netgear C6 220 was the one that came with the 1.02.01 version. In the second picture, you can see that the comcast version is I called comcast just for the sake of it, knowing full well what they'd tell me, and they told me to pound sand, and that they weren't going to push out a firmware update to a customer owned device. In case you're thinking of trying it. I thought I'd try to use the netgear genie app for windows on my laptop. It was able to connect to the router and see the v.1.02.01. When I hit the update button, I was told that I already had the most current version. There was no luck there. In conclusion... I think that's correct. The device ships with a newer version of the software. You can't update it from netgear's own app because it won't connect to the device because it's outdated. The only way to upgrade the firmware is to connect to the router with a browser. It will not be pushed out that would hopefully get the thing working correctly. What do you do? If you return it, you should seriously consider buying a netgear router from Arris or Motorola, and pay the extra couple of bucks. Even if you get one of these with newer firmware, you might not be able to use it for a long time because comcast updates their list of deployed firmware. If you've already bought it and are having issues with it, you should not return it. We wasted hours trying to get it to work.
It supports wireless security protocols. Three-in-one cable modem, AC1900 router and symmetrical voice ports are included. Four GigE ports, two XFINITY Voice compatible phone ports, and a 4 GHz and 5 GHz Gigabit Router are included. This product is recommended by the company for their XFINITY internet service that can reach 400 Mbps. It is required that you have access to the X Fibre internet service. It was approved by and for use with the two companies. The product will not work with any other internet service provider. It is possible to eliminate monthly rental fees and phone costs with a limit of 156 dollars per year. The built-in high-speed ROUTER with AC1900 WIRELESS and POWER BOOST provides internet access for a variety of devices. wired connections to Windows and Mac computers are provided by four 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports.

Wireless power boost for better speed and range adds high- performance power amplifier to boost the wireless signals to the legal limit, giving a significant boost in speed and range. AnyBeam beamforming at both 2. 4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies focuses the signal on wireless clients to further enhance performance and range. The backup battery option that allows your phone to make calls for 8 hours after power is lost is not included.
👤I bought this because of the increase in the monthly rental fee. I always had a gateway unit. I know that most techies buy a separate modem. I didn't want to have 2 pieces of equipment in the house and I never had a problem with the gateway unit. We don't do anything like that. I have a triple play package with Comcast. It is cheaper to have triple play than it is to have the landline. It takes about 15 minutes to set up. That is true, but there is no way to not call them. You can't just switch the phone lines and cables. You have to call the company to register the unit so they can connect everything on their end. You can't do that without calling them. When I called early in the morning, I didn't want to be on hold forever. I was fortunate to have two women who knew what they were doing and made the process very easy. I was worried about having to call. Press the prompt for internet service when you call. Get that set up. After that, check your phone. You will not have a dial tone. The internet person doesn't know that you don't have a dial tone, so tell the agent. They need to connect you to someone else. If you want to change the names of your networks, you can do it after you have everything connected. I am not a techie. I didn't want the network names to be what comes with the unit. I thought it would take another hour of my time. The instructions can be found on page 6 of the booklet. It took 2 minutes to change the network names. When you do this, you will have to log in to your internet again on all of your devices, and give the password. I am really pleased with the unit and getting it connected, but be aware that changing the network name kicks you off and you need to sign back in. I want people to know that they have to call to complete the process, register the device and get connected. Good luck.
👤It was easy to install. It was connected to the cable line. My PC opened the website and I entered my password. I was back on line within a few minutes. Do it! My download speed went from 250 MBs to 295 MBs. If you use the same name and password for your previous network, it will be easier to connect all your peripherals. When I returned my modem, it was the best thing. I overheard the teller tell another customer that the current modem rentals are $11 and will be going up to $13 on January 1st. I will return to my modem quicker. When I got to the front to return my modem, the teller scanned it and asked me where my new modem was, so they could register it. I told them that the phone line was working. She tells me that if they remove my modem, I will lose all my internet access in the house. I assure them that their modem has been working fine for the past 5 days, yet they still ask if I want to return it. They give me a receipt and a paper with instructions to register the modem when it stops working. The modem is still working perfectly after I got home. It's obvious to me that they want to steal every cent from their customers, including from renting equipment, and they're trying to scare me into keeping their modem.
The SURFboard Central App provides step-by-step instructions to set up your network. Setting screen time parental controls is possible once complete.

The SURFboard Manager app can be used to setup and manage your network. It's compatible with major U S cable internet providers. It is necessary for cable internet service. Not compatible with other internet providers. There are 16 downstream and 4 upstream channels. The best for cable internet service is up to 400 Mbps. The SBG10-RB part number is 1000886-RB.
👤The modem was in perfect condition and all the cables, connections, and lights were brand new. I was unable to get my internet service activated. I was unable to use my new internet service because the modem belonged to another account. I was told to contact the seller or the original owner and ask them to manually cancel the previous activation. This is not a problem with the device itself and the modem looked brand new from the outside. There is a word of caution for anyone looking to buy a cheap modem.
👤I'll update this review if the operation of this unit changes. I got the unit today to replace my modem/router combo since I have an Apple Airport Extreme. It was very easy. I connected the new modem after I unplugged the old one and then made a phone call to tech support to give them my address. After a few minutes, they shot a signal to my modem and I saw the lights flicker. I plugged in my Airport Extreme. I reset my Airport Extreme because I couldn't connect to my network. It worked like a champ. I've done a number of speed tests with the old modem/router. I would get between 47 and 51 mbps. I've gotten 56-58 mbps when I run the same speed test with this modem. The refurbished unit saved me $20, I paid $44 for it. I will be able to save $10/mo because of the modem lease deal I have with Comcast. I hope he keeps up his performance. So far, so good!
👤I have owned this Surfboard for several months and it has not had a single problem. We use it with a number of operating systems. The cable provider gives us a rated speed of 30 mBps down and 5 mBps up. When the cable company goofs, we get over the speed we pay for and this modem is more than happy to oblige. It's a good thing that al channels bond all the time. The modem does a better job of maintaining speed in the evening than the rental modem. We can still get 30 mBps. I've never been checked for speed. Wowway and Arris received good marks. We can watch educational documentaries on PBS while we surf the internet. There are chick flicks and monster movies. Even in the evening, this modem doesn't break a sweat. Tech support is excellent. It wouldn't register on Arris' warranty registration page when I first got it. Apparently it was registered to someone else, and they must have returned it. A live English speaking person answered my call in 1 minute. The technician fixed the problem in less than 2 minutes and offered to stay on the phone while I connected it, just in case I had a problem. Cool, huh? A happy guy. It was easy to connect it. The only thing I had to do was call the internet service provider. Arris fixed it after they saw that it was registered to someone else. It took about 3 minutes to provision a person at the internet service provider. Simple! I had a problem setting the Energy Saving feature for Wide Open West. The manual's procedure didn't match what the screen said. I wrote to someone. I got a reply an hour later. To set this feature, one has to unhook it from the internet service provider. The manual didn't include that part. Oh well! I wanted to re-boot it in case the power goes out. It wouldn't re-boot after the manual's procedure. I contacted tech support. A person called one minute later. He told them to unhook it from the cable. Excellent tech support again. The manual is Crummy. When we have had power failures, it does re- connect to the internet service provider without my intervention. If you are doing a software re-boot, you don't have to unhook the cable. The device runs well. It's very cool. The power supply is not inside the device, so this is probably because of that. It helps the circuitry run cooler. The power supply is a brick and it runs cooler than the outside brick. If needed, a generic can be replaced. It works well with my TP-Link routers. They have no family feuds. The report card was based on performance, reliability, and easy of connecting. The registration problem is the reason for B. A+ tech support by A+ temperature A+ Tech Support By E-Mail is called A+ User Manual. It's off to summer school for writers. If this ever needs to be replaced, I will buy Arris again. I will buy it on Amazon. Why is Amazon here? They helped me out when the first one I bought turned out to be a second hand one. I do recommend this device because it is cheap and not from Amazon. I'll update this review if it ever messes up.
A worldwide leader in technology depends on reliability. Comes with two years of expert support from their team. A built-in AC1900 dual band cable modem is a fast 24x8 DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem. Power boost, security, and more can be achieved with a wi-fi gigabit routers. The maximum modem speed is 1000 Mbps. The cable modem rental fee is up to 156 dollars per year. The savings are shown for the cable service provider, but not for the cable modem. Provides internet access for a variety of devices, including laptops, tablets, and more. wired connections to Windows and Mac computers are provided by 4 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports. A cable modem chip protects against denial of service attacks. Adding a high- performance wi-fi power amplifier to boost the wireless signals to the legal limit gives a significant boost in speed and range. The signal on wireless clients is further enhanced by anybeam performing at both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies.
👤I moved into a new home and there is only one game in town. I used to rent the modem/router monthly. I told myself that the next company wouldn't get me on that. I know that this will pay for itself down the line, even though it is an expensive out of pocket cost now. I read and researched between the different models and decided on this one. Installation was flawless. I was already connected to the internet when the tech was about to set up the TV. There is a strong signal in the house. There have been no problems thus far. The modem has been solid for the last 4 months. The signal is strong.
👤I bought a modem/router to replace my old one which cost me $11/mo to rent. Why didn't I do this earlier? The new router will pay for itself in 15 months, but the upgrade to the performace was so dramatic I could not believe it. The rented modem was less than a year old. The signal was unreliable on the 3rd floor of my house. It was very annoying that my nest cam would go off-line several times a day. I was blaming the other person. The download speeds were not impressive. Since I switched over to the new routers about 3 weeks ago, I'm getting strong signal on the 3rd floor and my nest cam hasn't gone off-line. The download speeds are much faster than with the internet service provider. This is a very good routers, bottom line. I could not be happier.
👤The device works. The self-installation process with Xfinity did not work out. I have an existing account with a modem. I had to register the modem by phone. The tech had to shut down the modem. The new modem was activated. The process took about 30 minutes. All is well after that.
👤I had trouble getting a strong signal in some corners of my house with my first routers, which was much cheaper. I replaced it with a satellite unit and it solved my issues with the internet. I needed to replace my modem about a year after I bought the device that could replace it. The beam forming and power boost features of the MG7700 sounded like they might be enough to overcome my home. Without an extra satellite unit, there is no need for a mesh routers. I was wrong. Even though this is a much more expensive and fancy router, it still has the same problems as my older cheaper one, which is a strong internet signal throughout my home. I am going to buy a new cable modem and return the old one. Apparently 5ghz signals have more trouble going through walls than 2.4ghz... When I connected my phone to the 5ghz network, it lost the connection in a far corner of my house, but it still showed the 2.4ghz network. The product was easy to set up, I just plugged it in, and I was prompted to sign into my account, which took less than 30 minutes. Since this is a dual band, you can have one network for both 5 and 2.4 GHz. It's nice because it gives you more control over which device you want to have on which network, but keep in mind that 2.4 GHz is more susceptible to interference than 5 GHz, and it has less trouble going through walls. You can set the SSIDs to be the same and leave it up to your devices to choose, which is what I did, and the Orbi uses the same SSID for both. The status and configuration pages are usable, but I have seen worse products. One thing I don't like about most other routers is that they only show the wireless devices, and you can't see the other devices. There are many advanced settings that I didn't play with, but almost all of them have an info popup with explanations. It's a decent looking device with a simple design. I rented a combo modem+router that looked like an alien spaceship, but it is not as big or ugly as this one. The shelf space is saved by having it stand vertically. The modem and router are combined into a single device, but I discovered that the firmware is not user-updatable. This is normal for cable modems, but not every other router allows me to update the firmware. Updating the functions of the device was not allowed. The manual says that when there are updates, they will be sent to your internet service provider for approval and deployment.
