I currently have WOW service and need a new modem. My current plan is 200 download and 10 upload. I can get an SB6183 sealed unit (black - maybe this is older?) for $20. I have a Black Friday deal on the SB8200 for $98. Is the SB8200 worth the difference since I’m limited by my plan speed anyway. I do tend to keep my modems for some time. I had my last modem for 9 years. I’d like to hear opinions. Thanks.
I have a SB6183 and often have lower internet speeds than my current plan and high latency. When I contacted my provider, they had to reboot service on their side to correct the problem. However, I still have high latency. When I advised him that my ISP had to reboot before and my issue with high latency, he inquired about the age of my modem. I told him it at least 3 years old and he suggested upgrading to on with docsis 3.1. Is he correct? Current plan is 300Mbps. Speed was at 50Mbps before call. Thanks.
HI, I have recently connected to Cox Communications and the Geek Squad was here from Best Buy to connect it to the modem and it’s currently running at 250, not 500. Cox said that I need a software update and it can be done remotely? Can you please advise? thank you,Julia
The internet was down with Cox yesterday. So I unplugged everything . Coax, blue internet cable and power. Half hour later got text that Cox was working on internet issues. I have 3 blue int cables, and 2 coax. Of course I stupidly did not mark when disconnected. Now don't know which ones. Any ideas and my modem turns on but 2nd light just blinks. Never turned solid. How do I know which cables and/ or could my 4 year modem have gone bad?
i’ve been trying to set up my modem to no avail i had this modem and a tplink router set up at my previous address, using xfinity i’m trying to install it now, but the globe button won’t turn on and connect to the internet. i called xfinity and they said it all looks good on their end. i’ve unplugged and reset a few times, but still nothing.
The internet thru my sb6183 would not come back on after being knocked out by a snowstorm. I’m trying to trouble shoot. After a factory start the status for upstream power is below spec. 35.7 dBmV-39.7 dBmV versus the +51 dBmV to 45 dBmV that it’s supposed to be. Is that enough to make it not function?
