Great modem

by Rich on 10/3/2010

Much smaller than the SB4100 model. Doesn't have the power button, so the modem is all the time "on".

Worked ONLY for 2 months

by A customer on 11/28/2010

It worked great for 2 months and all of a sudden stopped working. All it does is show all the lights solid green, but no internet. I replaced it with Charter's cable modem and the Internet connection is working fine. Charter said the modem is no good.
