Solid Inexpensive Alternative to ArrisSB8200 and Netgear CM1000 The Xfiniity compatible Modem was super easy to set-up following the Quick Start guide included in the box. Word of advice for Comcast / Xfinity subscribers — when stepping through the set-up Wizard, selecting the option to text an activation code is a joke — the code is only good for 15 minutes but I didn’t receive the text until 30 minutes had passed; just stick with your Xfinity account name for the activation and provisioning.Xfinity upgraded to DOCSIS 3.1, and, while my own 6 year old trusty Motorola Surfboard SB6580 was working fine, Xfinity found every reason to pester me about an upgrade and how much I’m missing not having a 3.1 modem lease an upgrade. I prefer to own my own modem, so, after perusing compatible modems for my region on Xfinity’s approved device page, I narrowed my choices to the ARRIS Surfboard SB8200, Netgear CM1000, and, this, the Motorola MB8600. All three are comparable at 1001 Mbps, 32 down x 8 up DOCSIS channels, and DOCSIS 3.1…

Constant disconnect issues; DO NOT BUY I purchased this modem for use with my new gigabit service with Comcast Xfinity. Constant disconnect issues. At first I thought it was because there weren’t any telephony lines and Comcast was trying to provision voice. When it failed, it would be disconnected.I wasn’t using voice, so I took it off my plan… and continued to have issues. I got wise and started researching (Google “MB8600 Comcast Disconnect) and found several others with issues.I decided to buy a Netgear CM1000. Got it set up with Comcast in just a few minutes and it’s been rock solid.Not sure if this is a bad modem, or needs updated firmware, or if the issues happen to be on Comcast’s side (even thought I had several techs come out and check my house’s wiring, all the way up to the equipment on the pole), but the Netgear works as expected and this one doesn’t.I missed the return window and can’t get my money back. Heed my warning; don’t lose money like I did.

Works Like a Charm with Comcast / Xfinity Great product. Works as advertised. Instruction manual is terrible but Motorola support is too notch.To use with Comcast / Xfinity:1) plug in modem, attach coax, and connect port 1 to a laptop with Ethernet cord2) go to xfinity setup webpage on your laptop and enter account credentials to activate modem (web page address is in instruction manual)3) modem will reset and then you should have wired web connectivity with your laptop4) unplug modem power, disconnect laptop and connect terminal 1 of modem with Ethernet cable to your router with router powered on, and then plug in modem power5) after plugging in modem it will reboot and then your wifi should now work.Tips:1) you may need to factory reset your router to get it to connect with this modem. I had to reset my apple time capsule reuter2) this is a bridge modem, so you must power it down before connecting a router. Plug in router to modem and give router power, and…
