    My modem I had been renting from comcast went dead, my options where to get a new leased one from comcast or buy one my self, I looked at all the options and this modem/router blew the rest away, the compcast staff had not even heard of this yet, its the newest and greatest. I have had it a few days and works GREAT!

    Customer review by Ranscott2011

    5.0 stars by Ranscott2011

    First off, and potential buyers need to know that this unit is both a modem AND a router in one unit, taking up a lot less space, and a lot fewer cables. For the price, it's a steal. I'm getting 75-104mbps on an 8 year old desktop with Windows XP3, wireless. On my newer Windows 7 machine with the same 4gb memory, I'm getting 150-170mbps, wireless. The pages just pop up, no loading. The downloads are so fast, I've actually looked to make sure I got it all. Imagine a 40mb file, in seconds, not minutes. On my old dial up a 40mb file would take at least 4 HOURS. This unit was purchased online from Walmart, with an extended 2 year service contract, installed by Cox cable guy, running on Cox Ultimate Internet service. Consider, you're buying the modem AND the router for this price, and at blazingly fast speeds. You can always revert to a slower and cheaper internet plan, and this unit will still work. With a slower unit, you can't bump up to a higher level of service without this or an equivalent modem/router. You'd have to buy a new one. Do the research. Once you do, you'll realize that the price is well worth it. I cruise the internet while at the same time streaming Netflix movies to the tv. I can't say enough good about this unit. It's only been one week, but I'm still amazed at the speed. Highly recommended!

    This modem works great with my 32 bit computers.It is fast enough to support multiple computer down loads while two seperate TV's are streaming video from the internet. This was my primary reason for this purchase, I'm very satisfied. A 64 bit computer computer at standard "download speed test" sights is incredible! My ISP has an advertised speed of 10mb. I've been happy with 5mb on my 32bit machines. On a 64 bit lap top, I've seen 20mb of download speed.

    • A. This IS a cable modem and works via a coax type cable. NOT an ADSL like a few have commented on. Time Warner lists it as one of their supported modems They say " Modems approved for Internet plans up to 100Mbps download" Click on this pages "interactive tour" option to see the back of the unit. Time Warner's supported modem page is: http://www.timewarnercable.com/en/support/internet/topics/buy-your-modem.html

    • A. Yes and it works extremely better than the modem that was provided to me by Time Warner. As mentioned, you do have to contact Time Warner so that they will activate it on your account.

    • A. @wanderlinghs I think what you need es an EXTENDER for your router so that you'll have better connection upstairs.

    • A. It will work as a router. You may connect via WiFi (802.11 a/b/g/n) or one of the four Gigabit Ethernet ports. It supports simultaneous use of a primary WiFi network and a guest WiFi network (guest access is optional).

    • A. I thought this works as a router too, but I guess we still need to get a router for upstairs because my daughters computer loses the connection constantly since we hooked up the surfboard. My connection (on same floor as surfboard) works fine BUT I do believe the overall "speed" is much slower than before when we had connection with rented modem from Charter. Anyone else have these two issues - ?

    • A. It's a modem AND a router, in one unit, a lot less used up space, and fewer cables needed. It takes up about 2"wide by 7" long, a very small footprint.
