Buy the SB6183 instead of this model i am going to repeat what another buyer said.. I am replacing this with the SB6183. I had the same exact problem as the other buyer posted exactly0 I am past my return date also so I am out $100.Do not buy this modem. This modem is running on a flawed Puma chipset and is plagued by continued disconnects. 8 of 10 times it recovers after 30-60 seconds, the other 2 you will have to bounce the modem. I did quite a bit of troubleshooting, first thinking this was my wifi router, then going after my ISP. but the issues turned to be due to this faulty modem. I’m unfortunately now outside of the return window, so I’m stuck with a $100 paper weight, as I’m buying a different modem to replace it. Why is this still being sold is beyond me.

Works great and saves you money but has a sensitivity to errors which can cause major headaches! I purchased the Arris SB8200 for Xfinity Gigabit Internet service as they have a deal for two years for the same price as the 400Mbps plan ($69.99). So in order to save almost $15 a month I decided to buy my own modem to replace my aging Motorola (Arris) SB6141. My SB6141 netted me 259Mbps down and 35Mbps up on my previous plan of 400Mbps down and 35Mbps up, which is great for a 8×4 channel Docsis 3.0 cable modem. So since Arris bought Motorola modem cable division I decided to get another one having had a great product with the 6141. The Arris SB8200 is also the only Docsis 3.1 modem with two Ethernet ports capable of doing 2Gbps down and is the most future proof of any modem on the market at the time of writing this review. And you can get a refurbished model for half the price which is even better!Inside the Arris SB8200 is a Broadcom BCM3390 chipset (a much needed change from the SB6190’s Intel Puma 6 chipset which had hardware bugs and caused them a lawsuit for good…

DON’T BUY DON’T BUY THIS MODEM. I’m so surprised that I experienced all of the same issues as the other negative reviewers. I ordered this modem because of a notice from xfinity that the DOCSIS 3.0 modems were no longer being supported (or something like that). Having a used SB6121 for about 5 years, which was still running great, I thought it was a good opportunity to upgrade, especially since I have had such a good experience with the older Surfboard modem. I had the modem for about 4 months, and suddenly it locked up on me, and we were out of internet for a couple of days. A lot of people seemed to have the same experience after 4-6 months. This also happened coincidentally after I came back from vacation. It seems like it it has happened to some others who gone on vacation to find their SB8200s locked up. Maybe it has to do with the overheating issue? But for 2 days, an ISP tech visit, hours of back and forth calling with xfinity support and Arris support, we determined it was the…
