It works like a charm with Time Warner Cable too!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Motorola SB6180 SURFboard DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem (Personal Computers)
I've just purchased this SB6180 cable modem from Amazon to replace the rental SBG6580 from Time Warner Cable because they have started to charge me a fee for the modem since October.
The SB6180 was not listed on Time Warner's website as an approved cable modem, but when I connected the modem to the cable and called the tech support at Time Warner Cable, they activated the device and instantly it worked very well, giving me the full speed. The only thing different is that I now need a separate router to be used with this SB6180, while the previous SBG6580 came with an internal router.
Although the SB6180 is listed as used, it looks like new. Plus, it costs much less than an SBG6580, even if the cost for an external wireless router is added. By the way, the wireless router with my previous rental SBG6580 worked very poorly, so I had to buy an external wireless router anyway.
Three days has passed since I installed the modem, and the device is still working like a charm. I'm happy with this purchase.
