    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

    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 purchased the Motorola SBG6580 SURFboard Docsis 3.0 Wireless Gateway a few weeks ago. It replaced a ten year old Motorola Surfboard and a ten year old Microsoft router. I subscribe to Comcast Blast and my download speed went from an average 11Mbps to 35Mbps. I have seven WiFi devices and all were easy to set up. The modem/router combo is great. It makes for less clutter on my desk and fewer cables to mess with. It is very easy to set up and you can easily change settings. Only wish I had bought this sooner.

    • 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:

    • This will work as one unit option. But all you need is a wireless router, which will work better.

    • 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). Source:,336,493,317,000

    • 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 - ?

    • 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.
