Motorola SB6180 or SB6141 on Mediacom System
« on: July 18, 2012, 02:56:51 AM »
I am upgrading my home network and considering purchasing a Cable Modem to own rather than rent.  My current package is Online Max.  The Motorola SB6180 specs look very good, but I cannot determine if it can be provisioned on the Mediacom system.  I can maintain firmware myself unless Mediacom requires a special download.  The bottom line is ... can I use a Motorola SB6180 or SB6141 that I purchase from an outside source?

Both should work with our system.

Thanks for the reply.  I gather that I would need to maintain the current firmware since it would be "my" modem.  I know you guys push firmware updates to company-owned modems. 

One other option I am considering is the Motorola SBG6580 modem/router/wireless.  This unit does not seem to get good reviews by users.  Can you advise me regarding Mediacom's experience with the SBG6580?

I do not have a specific experience with this model.  If you are seeing negative reviews I would say where there is smoke there is fire. 
We can push firmware to customer owned modems but only if we have the firmware.  We do not have it for every modem.

OK ... Thanks for the information. 

That should be all the questions I have on this subject, so it should be OK to close this thread.  Many Thanks!!
