Motorola’s next generation SURFboard SB5100 Cable Modem incorporates the latest DOCSIS 2.0 Advanced Time Division Multiple Access (A-TDMA) and Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access (S-CDMA) technologies to provide up to three times greater upstream capacity than DOCSIS 1.0/1.1 systems. Packed with power, the SB5100 is interoperable and backward compatible with DOCSIS 1.0 and 1.1 for a fast and timely transition — operators can deploy the SB5100 today without a service interruption. The Motorola SURFboard SB5100 is flexible and allows operators to maximize their current infrastructure investments and also offer additional cost-effective services, all at the same time. Convenient for both operators and end-users alike, the Motorola SURFboard SB5100 ensures end-user security via a top-mounted stand-by button that quickly isolates the USB and Ethernet connection to the PC without disconnecting the cable modem from the RF network. What’s more, the SB5100 simplifies troubleshooting with its front panel status indicator LEDs and integrated HTML diagnostics page. The Motorola SURFboard SB5100 is competitively priced and includes many of the valuable features found in previous SURFboard models, such as USB and Ethernet connectivity, software upgrades available over the network, proven field reliability and quality, advanced RF design and a high-performance processor.

Anyway, multiple attempts to activate the modem failed. I suspect the individual modem I purchased was faulty; it appeared to reset the connection repeatedly. Still, I wouldn't rule out Comcast incompetence as a reason it wouldn't activate. So... I wasted a lot of time today trying to get it activated by Comcast, and I'm not sure who to blame here. I'll be returning the modem and looking at purchasing a different model.
Wish me luck, and I hope you have good luck if you decide to purchase this modem, too.
