@The two above replies. I know it isn't used. I was reply to the comment about used modems. Just a little PSA.

So from what I can tell, this modem is useless with most cablecos. My 6121 maxes my D3 speed. It's good if you need a new modem, but it has no advantage over 6120 w/ current speed offerings.

Wake me up when 100/50 is <$100mo

there are also several threads at DSL Reports about firmware on customer owned modems. TWC will not upgrade your firmware. there was a story about one of the ISP's bricking several customer owned modems pushing out a new firmware so now they won't do it. some people getting the 3.0 modems used had older firmwares and had some issues. Motorola will not provide firmware upgrades. they are specifically written and distributed by the ISP's.

something else to keep in mind when buying your own modem...

Folk i changed out a old Surfbord Docs 2 for this one and speed jumped to 25 with nothing on my end ( same price diff Mac ofcorse) i once worked at Broadcom in SJ , in the lab (settop boxes were tested and tweeked) they had a full Motorola Cable Headend and full inhouse cable system...i worked on the Satellite baseband end and had managed hardware on this system....so this lab had racks of streaming servers looping content and taking feeds from the birds and re-insering just like mini-Comcast...^(&^) cool i love RF!

is this model complaint for Comcast Internet? I've seen they listed sb6121, but I have not seen sb6141
yes, it should be.
if it doesn't work, tell them it's a sb6121 and they will push that tftp config which should be compatible.

I was about to buy this combo with the MOTOROLA SB5101U SURFboard Cable Modem [newegg.com] from this thread instead.

I have basic Time Warner roadrunner. Can anyone tell me what the better deal would be for me? I think I'm mainly concerned with the quality of the modem. The package in this thread would cost about $23 more. Is it worth it to spend a little more? Thanks for any help.
that's a horrible deal for the sb5101. you can get one of those used on ebay for $20 shipped all day (not sure how much the router is worth).
if you are on basic cable (e.g. < 20mbps), then docsis 2.0 is fine.

with firmware upgrades and new tchnology always popping up unless you can utilizes the 3.0 features currently, you are better off waiting until you need this as opposed to buying it in hopes of being "future proof".

Really? Since I switched from the old TWC Webstar to this 6121 I find my surfing has slowed. When I am at a website and clik to move ahead it takes a while. I look at the modem and nothing is flashing. Is it modem problem or TWC problem?

I purchased one of the brown box modems from ebay for TW and I have only problems. It would timeout and reboot 3-4 times a day which disconnected me for 2-3 minutes. Not a major problem, but if you using voip it can be a problem.

Google "sb6141 t3 timeouts" to see the errors I was getting. Apparently my line is not good all the time and the modem gives up pretty quickly. I am back to the old modem that TW supplied and my problems have gone away. (Old modem more tolerant of noise)

Now I am looking for a different modem that may work better. TW cannot/will not fix my line.

TWC issued modem won't have a cap on speed but sb6121/sb6141 will put a cap on speed that TWC promised you, but the advantage is you will get consistent speed of your TWC package.

I guess I am not understanding what you are saying. Speed is not my issue. I have basic and am getting up to and sometimes over 20. My problem is clicking to move through web pages and it takes a while for the page to flip (either forward or back).

Clear your cookies. Ahhh I kid. But this is a discussion suited for DSLR or elsewhere on SD because there is a ton of issues that could cause this.

Just activate it under someone else name then transfer it back to yours. Wink
is it possible to keep old account activated and open new one under different name. How can you transfer modem ? Is there a comcast website where it asks for account number and you can provide new account number to be linked with modem which is already registered ?

Are you connected wired or wireless in case of both modems? There could be other issues on wireless if the wired sb6121/6141 has no page flipping issue as you mentioned.

I was looking for an answer to this question myself when shopping for a 3.0 modem.
I went with the 6121 since i had a staples coupon and got it for $70.
the only difference is the 8 downstream channels on the 6141 vs 4 on the 6121.
giving the 6141 the ability to reach 300mbps. other than that i dont know what other advantages the extra 4 channels brings.
