Categories > Modems / Gateways > Motorola > MOTOROLA SB6141 SURFboard DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet (RJ-45)

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 So far so good
Pros: Not a terrible ISP modem. Able to go 5-10Mb over ISP limit DL and UL.
Cons: Lights are a bit distracting in the dark/night - too bright.
Other Thoughts: Fabio B. mentioned earlier this month about this not being compatible with the Airport Extreme. I don't really see how it couldn't be and I can attest to having mine setup along with my Airport Extreme immediately after powering up.

Categories > Modems / Gateways > Motorola > MOTOROLA SB6141 SURFboard DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet (RJ-45)

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 One of the best modems I've ever owned, twice
Pros: Set it and forget it. Aside from VERY RARELY needing a power cycle (and I have yet to find a piece of networking equipment that doesn't), this has performed flawlessly.
Cons: I don't like how the connection light flashes instead of staying solid. If you use 100MBPS connection it's blue. 10MBPS it's red (which is what I use). A bit disconcerting to have a flashing red light on the modem. Makes me think something is wrong. But at the other location, it flashes blue, which still bothers me, but isn't as bad as red
Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this device. It simply works and is a much cheaper alternative to paying the monthly rental fee to the cable company.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Rock Solid - 1 year
Pros: This modem has been rock solid for 1 year now. Provides the full 50 mbps I am provisioned for with Comcast. Not a single issue during this time.
Cons: Leds are bright. Not really a problem for me in my utility room, but it might be if you used it in an occupied room at night.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Shocking
Pros: Loved this modem. Ran fast, ran cool and never let me down.
Cons: It's not impervious to the wrath of Gawwd.
Other Thoughts: Died heroically when the house was struck with lightning. I blame the modem due to the simple fact that it was so full of awesome the heavens were jealous of it and had it taken out.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Works Great
Pros: Faster than the cable company modem and no rental fee
Cons: LEDs are bright
Other Thoughts: At first it frequently rebooted. (however, the cable company modem was worse) It turned out to be the ground connection where the cable enters the house. It took a couple of attempts to fix the ground. Modem up solid for 71 days. The log is now full of DHCP renew instead of critical failures. This modem should be a solid performer. If you are having problems check your cable grounding, connections, and routing. Avoid sharp bends in the cable. A good single point ground of the cable shield is essential for noise reduction.
