    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!

    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!

    I bought this at WalMart and took it home. After hooking it up and opening an internet browser tab it immediately redirected me to a page directing me to a number to call my ISP (Time Warner Cable) to provision the new modem. After calling, it took about 10 minutes for them to provision the new modem and everything was up and running. 10 minutes later I had set up the WiFi and connected all my devices including iPhones, iPad, Windows 7 Laptop and a Samsung SmartTV. I can't imagine an easier setup (unless TWC would allow automatic provision without calling in, though that is no fault of the product itself). The WiFi range is exceptional: I even tested it out by walking down the block and was still getting very fast connections 2 houses down from my house. I would highly recommend this to anyone considering a modem/wireles router combo.

    works beyond expectations increased my connection thru the roof.I have my pc hooked up thru built in router, as well as my xbox 360, and i have my nephews pc hooked up thru the built in wifi, and i have not had one problem with connections. Such as restarting modem or connectivity issues between devices. Plus when i went to install i thought i would have to call comcast my internet provider and nope, to my suprise after following the install disk instructions for hookup and installation, I was automatically taken to a setup and install website for device it took me 3 clicks of a button and waiting 5 mins maximum plus no phone calls to ip. i recommend this to anyone and everyone looking for faster internet speeds plus a modem/router/wifi 3 in 1 combo for a much better price then buying 3 units seperately saving space and tons of money, plus no modem rentals from internet provider pays for its self after 1 year!!!

    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. 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 - ?
