Your video was just what I was looking for. Thanks for showing all the cable connections. That’s the part that most vids gloss over. Also, I appreciated the order in which to hook up the wires, too. Best of luck to your channed!!!

CryptoParody says:

Hello, I recently purchased the arris Motorola SB6183 modem. I removed all the wires from the old modem and transferred it to the new one. I bought this modem so i can have internet throughout all my devices (not through ethernet connection.) When I did that, the internet was not working. I talked to TWC and they said I need to purchase some kind of wireless cable. I’m still having trouble finding that cable. Is there a way you can help me with this problem?

Ku Isnotdaone says:

Yeah man, nice video, everything I need to know. Thank you sir

ViperTechnologies says:

Did you not notice that the top left of the panel on  your modem is popped out you should probably snap that back in place

Jamal Body Grafiti says:

Just bought this router last night to replace the Arris router that came with my internet Wow aka Knology that they are charging me 10 bucks for (Which i looked it up on amazon and it had 3 stars go figure) my internet had been dropping out and moving slow all the time and it didnt make sense so then i figured it probaly was the cheap crap router they gave so i bought the exact wireless router and modem you have in the video im hoping this fixes my issues with my internet

Lisa m says:

Jacob Kozlowski says:

Lil Butt says:

I have a question, do I NEED to have the coaxial cable on my modem at all times in order to work??

Quinn Lewis Quinn says:

can i put another modem in another room for a hard connection… no way to run cat6 between floors

pnoipr8 says:

Hi, new cox customer here, and stumbled upon your video. I’ve been using the modem/router box provided by cox for 4 days. However, I only attach two things (power and coaxial), from the box to the wall instead of three. Internet works fine. Is it still gonna work If i only use the 2 things as I did before or will I need to buy an extra cable now?

Khoa Dang Nguyen says:

Wait I thought this is a router and a modem

marsilio brandon says:

it helped a lot thank you 🙂

John Good says:

you’re doing God’s work

AJAX says:

Does it work if your trying to have a second wifi in you house?

insanecombo2 says:

I have Time Warner Cable Is it necessary to connect the SurfBoard to the current modem they proved with a ethernet cable OR can I just hook up the surfboard by itself

SomeSlyGuy1 says:

Is the 141 that much better than the 121 which is $20 less? I have comcast with four people in the apartment and the 75 mbps xfinity package? I am thinking about getting the Archer C7 router to go along with the modem! Thanks for the help!

Bryce McButtfuck, Furfag Supreme says:

Does it cost anything extra to use one of these, or is the ISP just enabling your internet to work through the Coax cable?
