I would go with any other modem then the SURFboard SB6183. I bought one a few months ago from staples for $30. It barely lasted 2 months before dying.

I actually owned a RFB 6183 before, gave it to my ex. It was a perfectly fine modem for the little over a year I used it. I also have a few friends that have bought them from the various RFB sales and the only one that hasn't worked had a faulty power switch out of the box (and it was swapped for a working one). So my equally anecdotal evidence will have me ignore yours.

Good for you. All I did was give my opinion.

surfboard modems tend to have the best build quality, 6183 would be good... they were made by Arris under a Motorola license deal that ended. Now Zoom makes their (Motorola's) new modems thier good but not great, (made more cheaply). So I'm a but iffy about their future if they stop support/updates on those older modems. Should be fine for now but If they stop support they will get put on the EOL list. Arris continues making the best stuff.

The CM-3024 posted here has the dreaded Intel puma chip set that had ping spike issues , that can effect gaming /streaming and that has never been fixed, firmware has lessened the issues, but not fixed according to the DSL reports massive thread on the issue

might be better off with CM500 for $49 @ amazon

unless you want to jump on the MB8600/SB8200 train but they are not cheap
generally just stay away with anything with Intel PUMA chip set
