Arris TG1672G Wireless Cable Modem Product Details
The Touchstone Arris TG1672G is a DOCSIS 3.0 Data Gateway featuring 16×4 downstream/upstream channel-bonding with superior throughput. The TG1672G combines two analog voice lines, a 4-port Gigabit Router, and 802.11n wireless access point with two independent simultaneously operating 802.11n radios into a single device capable of supporting both home and small office applications. Using an advanced dual core processor, this modem can achieve high bandwidth performance without affecting voice quality, a historical ARRIS product standard.
The Arris TG1672G also supports MoCA 1.1 for in-home video and data distribution over coax. This feature packed dual stack IPv4/IPv6 wireless telephony gateway will lead the future for advanced home and small office services. The two 802.11n radios create two concurrently operating wireless networks on both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands.
The improved antennas provide increased flexibility and throughput and deliver unprecedented performance while also offering improvements in home coverage above those of previous technologies.
The TG1672G is Not Compatible with Optimum Cable
Optimum’s list of approved modems only includes a few models including both the Arris TM1602A and Arris TM822A, however the TG1672G is not currently listed as a compatible equipment option both on their website as well as on any other sites with an Optimum approved modems list. In the past, their list has included the “TM1672G” which is not currently being manufactured, and does not appear on Arris’ website. Additionally, past customers have purchased this model in an attempt to find an all-in-one device to handle their networking needs. Unfortunately, however all of these orders were returned due to compatibility issues.
