Got rid of [...] Cable modem and purchased this one. Does a great job. A little bit difficult to set up as I missed one step but a quick call to Motorola and the problem was fixed.
Great support and great price
The modem acts as expected. I've been running it for over a week now, and I have not had to reset it once. The router portion, though, has a weak signal, so if you need your wifi signal to travel far, buy a separate modem and router.
i've read many reviews, from several various websites, regarding this all-in-one unit before i bought it. most reviewers praise the modem's performance, however, the consensus mostly agrees that the limited wireless range of the SBG6580 is something to consider before purchasing it.
my place is small (less than 650 sq. ft.) and so far, i have not experienced any problems with wireless connectivity. the modem works very well. there are 4 ethernet ports which
is plenty for most home users. and, the SBG6580 is also very easy to install......just plug & play.
the cost is reasonable for an all-in-one unit. i looked into getting motorola's SB6141 (which has been getting very good reviews) and buying a separate wireless router. the cost for both units would've been approximately the same as target's price for the SBG6580. besides, having an all-in-one unit saves a little more space and there's one less electrical plug to worry about.
the only problem that i've noticed so far is that the unit does run hot when you're pushing it. so, be sure to keep it in a well ventilated area.
i'd give the SBG6580 4.5 stars. but, got round up and rate it with 5 stars.
It's both router and wireless modem
It hooks up to your coax cable
If you receive internet from cable, This is what you need
the only negative comment.... no picture of the coax attachment on the back.
it is hard to know for sure from the info & the pictures
even the guys in the ele. department did not know, no picture on the box.
We had to open the box to make sure, weird because that is a selling point
So it works great, easy to set up,
no problems, it's a beautiful thing!
GREAT! Easy setup, great range and security. I have mine set-up on the second floor, in a back room. The signal on the first floor, in the front room is great. It's runs between 84 to 100 percent power delivered to the front room.
I like it very much. Always on and ready. I run three laptops and a smart TV. Streaming is not a problem.
Now this device is MINE.
One less device that [retailer] can bill me for. The modem will pay for itself, with the money saved o
n my cable bill, in 18 to 19 months.
