    A great cable modem/router. Handles both wired and wireless routing plus the modem capabilities, so I replaced two Linksys units with this one Motorola unit. Lightening fast performance, even with the kids hogging bandwidth on the home network.
    Lets you set up a Guest channel for WiFi access without granting access to your whole network.
    Easy set up. You don't even have to call your cable provider to register the Motorola modem. The set up software does that for you! Couldn't be easier. Took about 7 minutes.
    Carefull how tightly you lock down the firewall setting. If you play on-line games the tigher settings will shut off ports you need for the games. You can adjust it via the set up software that is included.
    Only complaint is that the vertical design can be tricky to stand up once you have all the cables plugged in. Twist them around until they stop pulling the modem over. Or use the packaging material as a 'base' to keep it upright.

          I am very satisfied with the product. It was easy to set up on my end. The conversation with TWC to set it up on their end took a while, but now that is it is up and running, I have had no connection problems. We run a Mac, and a number of PCs and laptops off it, as well as mobile devices. so far all the devices have stayed connected at all times.
