I've been watching for a 6190 to replace my old Cisco 8x4... Bought tons from woot, but never refurb. Any concerns or anyone have problems in the past?

Can't speak for woot but I just upgraded from 6141 to 6190 last week and the difference is night and day with the more poorly optimized streaming services. Hulu and Netflix always worked ok but HBO NOW was constantly like 480p quality. Those extra channels have it looking HD every time now. Worth it to me!

What ISP are you on and what speeds do you pay for? 8/4 modems (like the 6141) should have absolutely no issue surpassing 100mbps download.. guess it's entirely possible that your area is way overprovisioned (i.e. too many people sharing the same pipe) and that the added channels helps mitigate your perceived slowdowns.

I believe it's simply an oversubscribed area. I pay for 50mb on Comcast and often get it via speed tests (both Comcast and 3rd party like testmy.net), but actual performance was crap for streaming. As you say, the extra channels presumably let me spread traffic to more lightly used ones. I bond on all 32 downstream.

I realize the 6141 *should* be fine, but the difference really is easily apparent after the switch!

Yep.. that'll do it. We have no problem sustaining 90/12 on the 75/10 connection we pay for using a 8x4 channel SB6141.

Here's hoping the house I'm buying just up the road is in the same (seemingly underutilized) "block".

Just be warned, supposedly the arris sb6190 and other Puma6 chipset based modems should be avoided. I don't know if it should be avoided at all costs, but the problems people are having with it seem to warrant not buying it.

http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r...ar-mistake

There is also a class action lawsuit against arris and others for the defect in the chipset in the sb6190 and others based on Intel's Puma6. See here: https://www.classactionlawyers.com/puma6/

So... I dunno, buy the SB6190 at your own risk/frustration.

I have been lucky with mine so far but I noticed that if I don't reboot after every 3 days, it becomes more sluggish even during the early morning hours. Lives in Dallas and I know it is oversold in my area. All my neighbors uses Spectrum. So, ....I'm kind of neutral about the device.

If your isp doesn't provide you more than 300mbps or so, the Sb6141 can be had for $10-20 on eBay and works just as fine if not better than this since this does have chipset issues once in a while.

Just FYI.

A 32 channel modem will ALWAYS perform better than an 8x4 modem, given it is a good modem. Think of the channels to be like a freeway... if the freeway is congested but you have 32 lanes to choose from, you will get there faster. If you have a 32 lane freeway but can only travel in 8 lanes and those 8 lanes are full of traffic, there is no where else to go so you will have to slow down until a lane frees up.

you should call your isp, you should not be having issues like that. run speedtest and if you are not getting the numbers that you are paying for call them and tell them to fix it. also, something might be wrong with your 6141.
