got mine from ebay from modems-modems for 65 with free shipping. It was brand new and double my speed from the sb5100. 8 bonding channel rocks but i only get 3 channels bond upload!!
Lucky, my offer at 65 was rejected on all of them lol, ended up finally grabbing one from same guy at 67.

BTW the Rakuten promotion appears dead as well - at least I attempted to purchase from them using the promotion code first and it rejected the code so I then went to plan B - ebay...

I'm curious too.

Also, I'm on an old DOCSIS 2.0 modem that I bought some years back and my Comcast internet has been acting pretty flaky for a while now. I'm assuming it's because of the old modem being outdated. Does anyone know if that sound like a safe assumption?
May or may not be. Hard to say without troubleshooting. I have a handful of Docsis 2.0 modems and all work great (currently on a SB5101 which pulls downloads at 32 and uploads at 5 according to speedtest.net).

Either way for the price I am upgrading to the SB6141 as it is top of the current heap and then will try to offload my older modems for $20 or $15 bucks a piece (if I sell 3 at 20 I end up losing nothing for the most part hehehe)

Are these future proof for DOCSIS 3.1 or would you have to buy a new modem for that?

The eBay seller rejected all my offers and stated he wanted at least $70.

Just as FYI, I had some issues with my DOCSIS 2.0 modem, and then even more pronounced issues (stability issues) with the SB6141 modem. The Comcast techs were really no help, so I had to test all the coax lines in my house with different modems (the SB6141 and a Comcast issued Arris modem) and finally came to conclusion that the splitter outside the house needed to be replaced. Once I got a new splitter from Radio Shack (a good quality one unlike what was issued from Comcast), broadband speeds have been reliable, quick, and stable.

Check your modem logs to see if you are experiencing an excessive amount of errors: 192.168.100.1

My modem had logs like crazy but not anymore since replacing the splitter.

I had to talk to the seller several times before he or she allowed me to purchase it for $67.

If anyone know of a wireless router deal, please let me know!

Thanks,

Is it worth upgrading to an SB6141 from a SB6120/SB6121?

I've bought one on eBay two weeks ago for $70; came brand new and works perfect with Time Warner Cable. Great upgrade and more steady speeds and downloads than a crappy Motorola 5121 I had before. Great modem!

I bought this from newegg two weeks ago for the same price. It is the black model and was factory sealed and new. I bought it on the off-chance it would increase my speeds... and it most certainty did.

Slowly over the last two years I have consistently been unable to maintain 2 or 3 MB/s down on a 15down connection from 4 to 11 pm. ISP Suddenlink couldn't get me a straight answer. I assumed it was due to them overselling their service, but it was actually because all their new customers were still buying docsis 2 modems.

Glad I went from Docsis 2 to 3. Now on docsis 3 I get my rated download bandwidth 24/7 with no exceptions. Plus the ISP doubled me speeds for free at the same price guaranteed for 3 years.

Apparently 4+ channel docsis 3 modems (like the SB6141) are placed on a segregated networks not shared with customers who have older modems due to some incompatibility with their equipment between docsis 2 and 3. I'm told this applies to many US cable companies.

Who knew?

As far as modems-modems not accepting bids - I had several bids at $67 that he rejected before I finally got one accepted. (I hit the limit on offers on several of his sales due to trying to get under $67 and did 67 as last bid on several which ended up rejected.)

And to the above poster about splitters- yes bad splitters or poor quality splitters or too many splitters can be the issue, it could be poor signal from the post, it could be poor signal at entry, degraded signal because of bad coax, it could be the coax that was installed had bad connectors attached or poorly attached, etc etc, there are so many reasons for flaky internet that it is hard to be definitive without checking logs or swapping out equipment =/

Is it as easy as switching out the modem with comcast? Or do I need to have them come install again?

For me all I did was switch it out and connect one of my computer directly. Opened up an internet browser and it walked me through setting it up on the account with zero problems 15 minutes of automated browser message later all was good. Power cycled the router and modem before reconnecting everything and internets just as fast as before bounce
