- 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.

- 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 - ?by wanderlinghs5/21/2015Was this answer helpful? (4) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- 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.by Ranscott20112/25/2015Was this answer helpful? (7) (0)Was this answer helpful?
