4 out of 5 eggs Finally crapped out after ~9 yrs 12/07/2009

This review is from: MOTOROLA SB5101U SURFboard Cable Modem USB and Ethernet 10/100Base-T DOCSIS 2.0

Pros:

Owned a Motorola Surfboard for 8+ yrs with no issues (til now).

Cons:

Displayed same symptoms as others... Works, then no connection, have to unplug to reset and will work for several hours before needing to be reset again. Still works as of this writing but will order a new one before it (and my internet driven life) completely dies.

Other Thoughts:

My original unit made it through 2 house moves and then an office move to a different room. its started crapping out when I set it a small hutch cabinet and most likely overheated... felt warm/hot to the touch and now having issues. I recommend keeping it in a well ventilated area or in the open if possible.
