I just recently purchased a SB6141 for $50, my cable provider plan is at 100Mbps downloads speed. Should I return the cable modem for this one?

I've had better luck with Netgear CM500 on spectrum.

It can be had regularly for $49 after coupon on Amazon.
Why? What's the difference between the two?

don't know what the difference is.

All I know is I had a high mount of t4 timeouts and uncorrectable word count with the motorola.

LOL, SB6141 provides enough speed than most cable company can offer.
Then what's the point of upgrading and making "faster" modems? I have to assume a 24 channel modem is faster than my 8 channel.. Right or wrong? I'm on spectrum and believe it's 100mbps?

I see many tech sites rate the cm600 and cm500 highly.

SB6141 is enough for Spectrum 100mpbs service....
unless if you want new plan 400mpbs or higher plan, than you need a new modem (Spectrum offers a free modem)

The ISP determines how many and which channels for providing service (with certain rules regarding broadcast channels, etc.). Faster service means more channels needed, but in general the modem will either work (capable of handling the specific channels for the service) or not (not support one or more of the channels for the service). As others have said, the additional channels needed for Gbps service is not supported by less channel modems.

Theoretically, different number of channels modems should be the same speed for less bandwidth service plans. And theoretically, 8 channels should support up to 100 Mbps. But that is close to the limit.

Great modem as long as it's within your speed limit. Mine's been ultra reliable.

The arris lineup is fantastic I owned a few of their modems and can only say good things about them but this specific model is build with intels puma chip and this chip still has some issues after being patched up many many times. Head over to dslreports to read all about this chip.
You're thinking of the other model.

A 100Mbps plan will still only use 8 channels even if you have a 24 channel modem.

Ok. Just thinking an upgrade might help my speed congestion. Most everything in the house is wifi now. Ps4, Xbox, roku's and such. Running a nighthawk X4 router.

the point is there is no point in upgrading as long as you get the speed advertised by your ISP with your current modem (to check this - hardwire into the actual modem and run a speed test - dont use wifi from 20 ft away while others are connected because u wont get an accurate result). So a faster modem will not get you faster rates unless you are paying for faster rates. You could argue future proofing though if you plan on upgrading but otherwise buying a faster modem is a waste of money. Also check with your ISP before buying a modem and make sure they support it (like making sure it is on your ISPs "approved/compatible" modems). I learned that lesson the hard way.

I would upgrade the router. X4 is solid though but if you have deadspots then i would look into a mesh setup. If you have high latency when multiple users are connected then you need to get a more powerful router. Those are pretty much the 2 most common issues. You could also look into hard wiring certain devices to alleviate the wifi congestion - like the ps4 if its stationary, TVs or use MOCA adapters etc

If you need one of these you'll save money if you get a used or refurb one from ebay.

Modem and router is with the main TV and ps4. So I'll hard wire those off of the x4.
