    a modem built to last

    Customer review by Riding2Heaven

    5.0 stars by Riding2Heaven

    I purchased this in a local walmart about 5 years ago. And I finally decided to write a review. All I can say is that this is one of the best modems ever built due to it's low price tag and reliablility. I used this modem by itself along with my local internet provider and it performed flawlessly 24 hours a day/7 days a week. So I finally connected it to a wireless G router and I got the same flawless performance too. Iv'e never had a single problem in the 5 years I've owned it.. This modem may be the last one I ever need....

    This modem works just fine with Comcast internet. So it saves me $5 a month from the Comcast modem rental. Great price and shipped fast.

    Once I found out Comcast was once again raising the rental rate for their modem from $5 to $7 that was pretty much it for me. This modem is a great buy. Very simple to install, 1 quick phone call to Comcast to finalize the set up and that is it. Took about 5 minutes or so. Modem works great, no problems at all. FYI - don't forget to return your modem to Comcast as they will continue to charge you for it until it is returned to them.

    • A. I'm located in Oregon. But that is exactly what I purchased this modem to do. Unplugged the comcast modem, replaced it with this modem, called comcast gave a representative the MAC address from the label on the modem, and returned the old one. Now no more $7 lease fee. Hope this helps.
