There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Did a bit of research reading the reviews and found out it works if you just claim its a SB6141. I also read comcast engineers on dslreports will help you activate one of these. So I made a posting about it, and they refused to help saying its not supported and trying to activate it as an SB6141 is not possible. Blah. So A couple days later I called up again and just claimed its an SB6141 and it does indeed work.
Only thing is in the logs it says its refusing the firmware update from comcast because its in the wrong format:
2016-06-16 17:22:27 4-Error SW upgrade Failed after download - Incompatible SW file
Does this matter? Who knows. My modem currently has:
Software Version: SB6180-18.104.22.168-GA-01-516-NOSH
Either way, works and performance is just as good as the old xfinity modem.
- great price
- works with Time Warner
- you can stop paying modem rental fees
- its refurbished (mine looked used, but it works perfectly fine)
I have the standard package with TimeWarner, the download speed was 15 MB before. They have upgraded their services recently and now my subscription supports up to 50 MB download rate. This modem is compatible with the new speed and I get actually around 50 MB of download bandwidth.
I would like also to mention that I had hard time to have it running the first time. I had a problem when I tried to connect it to my wireless router. It was working fine when it is connected directly to my laptop via the wire. However, the router did not recognize the modem at first or the other way around. I kept power cycling until it worked at last.
Overall, this modem completely fulfills its purpose and it supports high download speeds. I would recommend.
The modem will work fine for a period of time, initially a couple of hours. After that, the speed will drop to almost zero on the upload and download. Packet loss becomes a problem, too (20-30% loss), but this does not even come close to accounting for the overall drop in speed. One test (I had to run it several times before it would even complete) showed that the modem was downloading at 0.15 Mbps!
Unplugging the modem and plugging it back in solved the problem for a short time, but the modem would almost immediately run into the same problem unless it remained unplugged for several hours. After leaving it unplugged overnight, I again got an hour or two of reliable speed out of it. After that, the same thing happened, again and again.
I returned this product to the seller for a refund, and got a Netgear modem. I have had no issues with it.
I followed user reviewer Tamer's instructions: connected the modem directly to the computer, accessed IP address 192.168.100.1 to access the modem's page, clicked the "Configuration" tab and clicked the "Reset Factory Defaults" button (this is explained here: http://arris.force.com/consumers/articles/General_FAQs/SB6180-Factory-Reset)
I then called Comcast and asked them to provision my new modem, identifying it as an SB6141 as suggested by Tamer. Worked like a charm.
Recommended -- it works with Comcast in the San Fransisco South Bay.
Thanks again to user Tamer for his review and all the helpful people who left comments there.
