We bought this modem to use with Time Warner cable so that we wouldn't have to pay the ridiculous monthly rental fee for one of their modems. We chose this over some other cable modems mostly because it had wireless capability so that we wouldn't have to buy an additional wireless router. We've had this modem for a week and have not had any issues with it.

Everything works for me so far. I'm on a Mac and use it for TWC cable. Set up is fairly easy. Setting up WiFi requires a bit more of a research online because the docs that comes with it missing some infos and not clear enough. Go to Youtube and search for it, it's there.

lorye L  Is a router included with this modem?
Francisco M  YES IT DOES.
Ernest M  does the blue light blink? If not what should do?
RICHARD D  The blue light remains illuminated with no blinking along with three other lights in green. The only light flashing is the antenna icon in green below them.
Sue V  I have a new Motorola surfboard modem and when I hooked it up there was a red blinking lightning sign showing up. What does that mean?
Francisco M  WHAT DOES THE SIGN READ? HAVE YOU REPEATED THE PROCESS? HAVE YOU CONTACTED MOTOROLA? HAVE YOU BROWSED THE MANUAL? IT COULD MEAN MORE THAN ONE THING.
