I bought the SB6190 a month ago for about $50... Reading about these puma chip issues and I don't seem to have any problems. Is there anything I need to do to see the issue or problem in action?

eBay had some promotion and I bought it off a seller who listed it as new but it ended up being open box from Amazon Warehouse... Dude was straight up drop shipping from Amazon prime. It was a one off thing and he gave me a refund after complaining.

But is this 8200 worth the upgrade from the 6183
Only if your provider is serving up DOCSIS 3.1 and you have >400Mbps of bandwidth. Otherwise, not so much. The 6183 is rock solid and a far cheaper device for most users.

Heh that's pretty lame. But not surprising. I hate Fleabay.

I've had this modem for 3 years now and it's been great. Decent price point.

NETGEAR CM1000 32x8 DOCSIS 3.1 Gigabit Cable Modem $125.99

https://slickdeals.net/f/11819043-netgear-cm1000-32x8-docsis-3-1-gigabit-cable-modem-125-99?v=1&src=...

Can I use my own modem for Gig Speed service?
Yes, however we highly recommend that you use the Wave modem for Gig Speed service to ensure you get the fastest speed your devices can support.

There are three DOCSIS 3.1, 32-channel modems certified for use on Wave network. These include:

Motorola MB8600
Arris SB8200
Netgear CM1000

Reminder: Internet download speeds may vary and are not guaranteed. Observed speeds may vary by customer based on device, connection, & other factors outside of Wave's control.
I would personally go with Arris SB8200 or MB8600. There is lots of research on DSLreports as per performance and what I gathered they are very similar in performance with SB8200 barely performing better. The main detractor is the heat issue I mentioned which you can also find more details on dslreports about it which makes a lot of people pick the MB8600 since performance is the same basically.

The only flaw of the MB8600 that I have seen is in the physical design that leads it to sometimes toppling over easier than other modems. This is easily fixed though.

If you want to go with a non tech popular choice pick the cm1000 but it has no spectrum analyzer and doesn't have the 2/4 link aggregate ethernet ports the other two have. (This might not matter to you) Someone on DSLreports also physically opened a CM1000 and a SB8200 and the build/parts quality is way higher in the SB8200. In the end though I would do specific research based on your ISP and see how many download/upload channels it supports, whether it will support docsis 3.1 in the future or not (some arent like optimum), etc then pick the best one for yourself.

Just get an Arris CM8200A (black) off ebay. It's exactly the same thing and activates easily via all major providers needing DOCSIS 3.1 for gig internet.
