    Motorola MB8600-10 reviews

    MB8600 DOCSIS 3.1 Cable Modem is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 34.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatly improved the reliability of Cox Internet My Internet package is only 15 megabits per second downstream and 2 upstream when it is working properly. Probably due to the heavily-loaded Cox circuits, my downstream speed would often slow to dial-up speeds in the afternoon and evening when I used my DOCSIS 3.0 modem, which had only four bonded downstream channels. This Motorola DOCSIS 3.1 modem appears at first blush to be overkill for my modest internet package, but with its 32 downstream channels, even at the worst, my downstream speed seldom now drops below 6 megabits per second. There are enough channels to compensate for many of the problems with my Cox connection. I shouldn't have needed to upgrade, but because Cox is the only internet provider in my neighborhood, I had to either find a way to work around the Cox connection problems or forgo an internet connection altogether. If you want very high-speed internet, a DOSCIS 3.1 modem such as this one is essential, but even at lower speeds, a good DOSCIS 3.1 modem can go a long way to compensate for poor service from a dodgy service provider like Cox.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works perfectly For several years I tolerated an all in one Netgear N600 cable modem router. The only thing I could count on was dropped connections about every 45 minutes and logged errors for which there were no known fixes. I installed the Motorola cable modem and attached a D-link N750 WiFi router several weeks ago and experienced flawless performance ever since. My advice would be to never purchase all in one cable modem WiFi routers unless you're buying the most expensive and proven hardware available. Separate devices are the way to go. With DOCSIS 3.1 I thought it was odd that after connecting the modem via Ethernet cable to the separate Wi-Fi router the remaining open ports on modem rejected my attempt to connect a laptop or a second router via Ethernet. The manufacturer responded quickly to my inquiry, stating this is a planned behavior which has something to do with future extreme multi gigabit speeds where you'll run two Ethernet cables to a single future router in order to handle extreme speeds. Which leads me to believe this modem is less likely to prematurely join my closets collection of outdated electronics.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Max speeds Comcast Xfinity sent a notice that my unsupported modem is not allowing me to get maximum internet speeds.� Since I already have an older Motorola DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem, I decided to get the top of the line Motorola one versus the NetGear while saving $20.� Since this is Xfinity supported, all I had to do was plug it in, wait for a service connection and open a browser.� There was a redirected screen to initiate the activation/enrollment.� It didn't take much time at all.� No need to call Comcast and give them the model and read the MAC address to register and reboot.� Now I get ~175mbps.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This Sucks Drops internet 3 time a day. Comcast says it is Motorola, Motorola says it is Comcast.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Updated my Modem at Comcast request I received a notice from Comcast that I needed to upgrade my Modem. They gave me four brands (with model #) that they recommended. In 2013 I had purchased a Motorola SB6121 and was happy with it so I purchased Motorola again.� The SB6121 gave me good service and I hope this model does also.� Sure beats getting one from Comcast and paying a monthly 'rental' fee forever.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Modem My SB6190 stopped working and with KNOWN problems with that model, rather than buy another one I decided to go with the Motorola MB8600 DOCSIS 3.1 model. It is cheaper than the Arris SB8200 and runs COOLER and where the Arris SB8200 uses the same chip set as the Motorola, I knew I couldn't go wrong with Motorola

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Compatible with XFINITY Phone Service Modem has great specs. Unfortunately it is not compatible with XFINITY Phone Service. They cannot activate the modem, due to some asinine policy if you have phone service on your plan. Even if you don't use the phone and like me just have the service on your package to get a better price on cable and internet. The blame falls mostly on Comcast for the policy, but also on Motorola for marketing it as XFINITY compatible when that's partially true.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cable Modem Love my new modem.� Easy to install.� Seems to remain cool.� Up for about a week.� Some of the ports on the back were blocked with a removable plastic tab to avoid confusion.� Hopefully I will be somewhat future proofed since it is capable of more than 1000mb per second and is Docsis 3.1.
