Motorola SurfBoard SB6141 review

Motorola SurfBoard SB6141 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable modem came to my house as a replacement for Netgear CMD31T modem which was barely working for almost three weeks. Once installed I had a problem with Netgear CMD31T dropping Comcast/Xfinity Internet connection once or more per day. It was not hard to get the connection back, the Netgear modem has easy to understand lights that let me know what is going on with my connection. It usually it takes just a few minutes to get the connection back. but it doesn't work for me. I often work from home and recently dropped my land line phone service replacing it with Ooma Telo Free Home Phone Service. That's why I decided to give a try to Motorola SB6141

The modem was extremely easy to install. Plug in, call Comcast to register, navigate to www.comcast.com and you are good to go in the less than 15 minutes. Once I upgraded to Motorola SB6141 I couldn't believe it, it works like a charm for almost a month now. The only downside to this modem are those damn blue LED light. I taped over them with black electrical tape, but because the device is covered with ventilation holes, the LEDs blare through them. I would recommend installing the modem outside your my peripheral view.
