Terrible Wireless performance!!

Customer review by Lazyazzdaddy

1.0 stars by Lazyazzdaddy

I bought this modem/router combo to replace the one that I had been renting from Time Warner cable. The reason I decided to purchase my own modem/router was, 1- To save money! and, 2- I had always had problems with the units I was getting from Time Warner. The issue's I would always encounter were that anything that was hard wired to the modem combo would work great, but anything connected through wireless would cut in and out and would have terrible connection speeds. So I purchased this unit (motorola SBG6580) from my local Walmart thinking that it would solve my wireless connection issues. What a big disappointment and huge waste of money that was! After connecting this modem/router combo I continued to have the same issues I had before with the Time Warner unit. (I found out later on that this modem combo is one of the same units Time Warner rents their customers!) Well after almost a year of tweaking and constantly having to reset my modem combo unit, I finally gave up and looked to the internet for answers. Apparently I am not the only person that has issues with the wireless portion of this unit. It seems to be a very well documented issue for many others as well. What I ended up having to do was to go out and purchase a separate wireless router.(for those interested, I purchased a Netgear N600.) I then put my Motorola SBG6580 into bridged mode and ran the wireless signal through the Netgear router, instead of the motorola unit. Basically I had to turn off the wireless signal of the Motorola unit and use it strictly as a basic cable modem. (something that costs a fraction of this unit). Ever since doing this my wireless connection speeds have been consistently right at, or above, my advertised speeds. Bottom line, if you are looking to upgrade the router/modem you have been renting from TWC, PLEASE do not buy this unit, unless you are prepared to do as mentioned above! This unit is no different then the unit you are already renting and will end up costing you MORE money in the long run!!! If I had to do it all over again, I would have just bought a decent modem and the same Netgear wireless router I ended up purchasing. I could have saved about $100 and a LOT of headaches!
