We just received our modem and it was well packaged by Supreme Deals SCR. Instructions were simple and clear. Set up was about 10 minutes. Had to call Comcast twice because the first time they did not disable our old modem… and we knew to ask because we were instructed to on the instructions included with our new modem. All is working excellently! Would order from this company again and wish them well!
First was not possible to detect the wifi signal, i called the motorolla cs they said i have to either pay for the phone service or contact them via chat, i did chat with them and they asked me to do physical reset it didn’t work and than they said it is spectrum fault because their signal doesn’t let the router detect the wifi, i called spectrum they confirmed their signal is good, i returned to Motorola cs, they said they can do nothing else but physical reset again, we did it router still con’t detect wifi signal, i went to Google and found a forum talking about same issue i have and suggested i do a software reset, it did help router detect the wifi signal, connection good for a week than i have to do the software reset again, than worked for a week and lost the signal, i tried the software reset still can’t detect signal, fortunately i still can return the router (thanks).
Great price. Worked perfectly with Comcast / Xfinity. I have the 100 Mbps package and am getting consistent speeds of 100 Mbps over wifi. Couldn’t be happier, as I’ve spent over $100 on modem / router combos and this one works just as well!!

Up and running. Did arrive with a little cosmetic damage but for the price can’t really complain. Update 8/6/18 Wi-Fi started dropping in and out every few minutes and had to replace it.
Works just a well as the high end router that I was renting from my cable company. Easy to set up and the range is pretty good. I live in a concerete surrounded apartment and can still get good signal at the other end of the apartment.
The unit is also quite small, which means it is not an obvious eyesore.
Sorry. This was another worthless piece of junk. It showed up with parts clearly rattling around inside. Not a good start. What a surprise, it did not work. After calling several numbers, waiting on hold, and wasting a lot of time, the warranty agent said that I needed to register the product online for him to be able to speak to me or there would be a charge of something like $39.99. I told him the product was not working, therefore I could not at the moment register the product without his assistance. Nice! I was force to “Chat” with them on my phone through their website. After the unit was reset, the connection was lost as was the chat and was never able to get anyone else and the unit was a total failure. Great customer service huh?

Pretty good but it does not have quite the range as the one I was renting from comcast…. I would guestimate it has about 85% of the range… It also wont broadcast in both 2.6 and 5. Its one or the other.

A++! No issues so far! I had to have Comcast install the necessary cables to have internet/wifi capabilities in my older apartment unit, so they made sure my router worked too. I’ve had no problems in the 2+ months so far!

Unfortunately I received a dud modem. At first I thought it was my internet, but upon reading the reviews, I found that the problems I was encountering were common. I initially purchased this because I have no need for a high tier modem. What I did need though one that actually worked. This thing constantly kicks you off WiFi, and has to be reset. Please read the reviews and look elsewhere!
I try not to buy refurbished products, but the price was right. I am super impressed with this gateway. The packaging is excellent, and the product actually seems brand new. I had no trouble in connecting to Xfinity. And the Wi-Fi signal is strong. I am very happy with this purchase. I haven’t had a bit of trouble with this refurb.

Really disappointed, this item only worked for one and a half months then it just turned off and didn’t turn on any more. I bought a refurbished modem 2 years ago and It’s still working, but I think this time I wasn’t so lucky.

This router does not require the LAN cable to be configured as the WPS set up button enables a quick first connection (just remember to hold it, not just press it).
You then have to contact your provider to register the device and in a few mins you are online.
There are comprehensive instructions in the box and the device is properly refurbished and sealed. Looks like new.
If you are having issues with xFinity modem due to b/g/n mode (eg. FitBit Aria connection), those will disappear with this modem.
I am glad I bought it and would definitely recommend.

First thing I noticed is the wifi range is not very good, I can be in the room next to it and the wifi is only about 20% of what it should be. But I have my main computer connected with ethernet so it’s not too big of a deal. If you’re using ethernet it works as it should I have no complaints, just plan ahead accordingly.
Edit: After a month of using it the wifi has stopped working completely. I do not recommend this product and would encourage you to buy a different router.
This modem arrived exactly as described. Obviously used, but also seemingly tested and wrapped to appear as new.
Worked perfectly. The serial number and Mac numbers were clear on the label.

I was excited about using this over the cheap cable company unit. I suppose it works well but I never got to try it as my cable company figured a way to screw their customers by locking out the Wi-Fi – unless you pay their monthly Wi-Fi fee.
I bought this and gave Xfinity back there crappy box that always restarts randomly. This one has been running flawlessly.
Excellant product. Refurb. Good wifi range.
No manual. No instruction sheet. No coax cable. No splitter. No printout from refurb company.

Docsis 3.0 and compatible with my cable company.. working well on wireless and LAN — no noticeable packet loss… games rockin’
Works fine was disappointed it was in a small box shipped in a larger box with no packaging so it flopped around inside the larger box but it fired right up and I’m saving on rental fees
