5 out of 5 eggsTop of the line

Pros: Great Price going through Newegg.com, Very easy to install, all information that the ISP would need to add the modem to your account is clearly named on the device as well as the product comes with a card that has the information, Web based UI is a bit overwhelming, but Motorola offers good help guides for what each options is.

Cons: Where the help guides inside the Web UI is good, there should definitely be more information available for some of the rarely used features. help is a bit vague on some of the features.

Other Thoughts: All in all, this product is a great addition if you are in need of a DOCSIS 3.0 all-in-one cable modem, router, wireless unit.

5 out of 5 eggsBang for the Buck and Long-term Savings

Pros: -No Modem Lease Fee indefintely through ISP,
-Modem and Router in Single Unit reduces wire clutter and saves space.
-Gigabit ethernet supports virtually any consumer level bandwidth speeds currently available. Also allows for fast transfering of files between different devices within the same Home Network.
-Dual Band N-router has good range and signal strength, capable of supporting multiple wireless devices at quick speeds.
-Supports upcoming next-gen technology such as DOCSIS 3.0 and IPv6.
-Router Software/Firmware has extensive features, including parental controls.
-WPA2-PSK (and other options) to help ensure "bandwidth thieves" aren't robbing you blind.

Cons: -802.11 n is "old" technology, does not have newer AC level wireless bandwidth.
-Does not come with adjustable external antennae.

Other Thoughts: Running 50 Mbps service from ISP, seeing speeds over 7 megabytes/sec. through my wired ethernet desktop PC. Supplies plenty of wireless bandwidth and connections stay strong throughout the apartment, even after travelling 60 feet through multiple walls, and servicing up to 3 wireless devices simultaneously (Laptop while gaming, iPad, Android Smartphone). We have two people playing MMO's (one wired, one wireless) at the same time with no speed or connectivity issues.

Good bang for the buck and pays for itself (by not having to pay modem lease fees) far sooner than when it will need to be replaced for newer tech. Would Recommend to Friends and Family.

3 out of 5 eggsUpdate to my recent review

Pros: All in wireless router and cable modem, small footprint.

Cons: Ever since the recent update older devices in 2.4Ghz randomly lose internet access. Resetting the adapter resolves the problem, but it will randomly happen again. I tried many settings and advice from forums with people having similar issues, but the problem continued. I ended up replacing it with the enormous sized 6782-AC(compared to the 6580). Range is better on that unit especially in 5Ghz, but the 2.4Ghz problem still exists, but with better 5Ghz range, I bought a 5Ghz adapter and things fly.

This 6580 is dual band, but they do not run at the same time.

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend the White (and large) 6782-AC over this one because it range is better in both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz and they run concurrently, the unit seems to run cooler and power supply is built in (no power brick)

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Only need one device

Cons: So slow, only getting 9Mbps while plugged in. On the on the SB6121 I get 95Mbps. Don't know how they can advertise the speed when it is not there.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: I have owned this Motorola/ARRIS modem for a few months now and have not had any problems with it until today (see other thoughts) It's been reliable and quick, works well with my wired and wireless devices plus my WD Cloud

Cons: Either Comcast or ARRIS pushed a firmware update recently that messed up Wi-Fi. (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: When I got this modem, the set up page (192.168.0.1) was all Motorola, It was simple, basic looking with the features an average user would need. Just within the past couple weeks, either Comcast, or ARRIS (who now operates the Moto SURFboard line) pushed a new firmware which changed everything. The setup page is all ARRIS now, but the new firmware also messed up the Wi-Fi where it would cut in and out. I ended up just factory resetting the modem then setting it back up to how it was and it seems the problems have been solved. The new ARRIS set up page is much better looking than Moto's, and with pretty much the same options, but much easier to navigate and use.

3 out of 5 eggsKludgy interface

Pros: Fast. Doesn't run too hot. One device to replace modem & router.

Cons: Poor wireless average. Terrible Motorola GUI for router configuration, with essentially worthless "Address Reservation" mechanism to assign static IP addresses to devices on your home LAN. Mistakenly treats "reserved" addresses mixed in with DHCP addresses, but dynamically assigns other devices to them anyway... with the "reserved" entries then no longer appearing as "reserved". Setting IP on a PC then reserving the address in the DHCP list causes entry to vanish! When editing the list, when you select an entry and hit delete, it deletses the next item in the list. Very poor software and , 1980's DOS appearance.

Occasional problems with WiFi dropping, both primary and guest networks. Growing problem holding ISP connection.

Other Thoughts: Agree with "Darryl S" and copied some of his comments. This device was recommended by local shop. Should have bought separate devices.

4 out of 5 eggsEasy setup

Pros: Fast
Reliable
Easy setup
Flexible

Cons: Can get warm, very warm, consider adding a 50mm fan to the side of the case.
Web support is not strong from manufacturer.

Other Thoughts: When I bought this over 2 years ago I had little modem/router setup experience. I now have over 2 dozen devises on wifi, a Gigabyte bridge with 6 cybercoin mines running 24/7. I have encountered a few devises that would drop the connection. I learned (Google) that by changing setting in the 6580 setup that this is fixed.

I've added 7TB of personal Cloud NAS storage (WD MyCloud) to the router, excellent up and down load speeds.

Only issues I have had trace back to my ISP. My ISP (Comcast) gives my speeds up to 72Mbs, but average is 54Mbs.

2 out of 5 eggsUnreliable... go with alternatives

Pros: Single box DOCSIS 3.0 modem acceptable to TWC, and 4-port gigabit router as well. As expected.

Cons: Poor wireless range. Terrible Motorola GUI for router configuration, with essentially worthless "Address Reservation" mechanism to assign static IP addresses to devices on your home LAN. Mistakenly treats "reserved" addresses mixed in with DHCP addresses, but dynamically assigns other devices to them anyway... with the "reserved" entries then no longer appearing as "reserved". HORRIBLE SOFTWARE and very unfriendly to the user.

Finally (naturally one month after the 1-year warranty expired) the Internet side began to persistently hang up with browser showing as "connecting to..." or "looking up..." but it would never resolve. Web pages would simply show the "spinning ball" as if they were still downloading, but would never finish. This became worse and worse until it was intolerable.

In frustration, I threw it out and replaced it with TWO boxes from Netgear: CMD31T DOCSIS 3.0 modem acceptable to TWC, and WNDR4000 dual-band gigabit router (with the much-loved and 100% user-friendly and 100% reliable Netgear Genie GUI software). All of my Motorola SBG6580 issues DISAPPEARED IMMEDIATELY!!

Strongly recommend that you do NOT buy this SBG6580, but instead go with something like the 2-box Netgear solution.

1 out of 5 eggsSeems like a good idea

Pros: Great combination of wireless and wired connection. Modem and Router all in one.

Cons: Exactly 1 year and 1 month of ownership, the wired connection ceased to work any longer. Upon contacting the company for support I was told that there was nothing that they could do. Wireless still works at least. If i could do it over again, I would spend the extra few bucks and set up a modem/router configuration. I would not recommend this product to anyone to be quite honest.

2 out of 5 eggsGood speeds but...BEWARE

Pros: Very high speeds when using a LAN connection given the cable provider.

5ghz signal also provides a solid speed when connected.

Cons: THIS PRODUCT IS NO LONGER SERVICED BY MOTOROLA.
They will not support you and you have to go through a secondary company if you have any issues (and you will).
Primary issue is that wifi is incredibly spotty and will take a while to re-establish connections.
False advertising in that the router DOES NOT project both 2.4ghz and 5ghz bandwidth's at the same time. Its one or the other and if you have a device that cant detect the 5ghz, well then your forced to only 50-60% possible speed capacity.

Tried connecting a 2.4ghz router to the device and running them on separate channels but the device wouldn't allow it.

Other Thoughts: Though I love the router when I have a hardline connection since it gives insane speeds and the wifi speeds are great when it works, I do regret purchasing this product since I dont have the option of just returning the router component and upgrading to a new router.

Still trying to get compensated from the new company thats "supporting" the Motorola routers/modems.
