Two Bands Are Better Than One
Cutting-edge technology drives the concurrent dual band operation, which functions on two spectrums to assist in reducing interference from other routers and devices in your neighborhood. Common low-impact Wi-Fi activities like web-browsing and email operate perfectly well on the 2.4GHz frequency, but when you want to start streaming HD content, the 5GHz frequency gives you more space to accommodate all that incoming data, without lags and time-outs. Keep in mind, you'll need a dual band compatible device to take full advantage of the speeds and potential of the Motorola SURFboard.
What Does "AC" Wireless Mean To Me?
To start, "AC" is the latest wireless network protocol following in the footsteps of the famous 802.11a/b/g/n. Here's where it gets a little more exciting, 802.11ac has the potential to wirelessly deliver more data at a faster rate to more devices at once over more channels at a greater distance. It's the next step in Wi-Fi. It's important to remember that in order to take full advantage of the top speeds of Gigabit AC wireless now, your equipment - computers and devices - will also need to be compatible with wireless AC and the 5GHz Wi-Fi frequency.

Made in China
Please Note: Requires cable internet service through a cable internet service provider for operation. Some devices may requires additional equipment or adapters to be compatible with all features of this modem and router. Standard transmission rates (ex. 300Mbps) are the physical data rates. Actual data throughput will be lower and may depend on the mix of wireless products used. Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS) is an international telecommunications standard that permits the addition of high-speed data transfer to an existing cable TV (CATV) system. It is employed by many cable television operators to provide Internet access over their existing hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) infrastructure.
With more and more devices connected to the internet, it’s important to ensure your at-home networking devices are up-to-date and can support the demand on connecting and streaming. A new tablet, phone or smart TV is great, but if you don’t have enough bandwidth or speed, you won’t have an optimal experience.
Modems are the portal to which your internet is connected from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). If your modem is provided by your ISP, you are renting it. (Check your bill to see if there's a monthly charge.) Most people will save money in the long term by buying one of their own. Routers
Routers pick up the internet signal from the modem and then distribute the signal to your devices, either through Ethernet ports or wirelessly. Wireless routers come in a range of technologies:
Adapters, also called wireless dongles, can be added to items that do not already have built-in wireless capability. This gives you the freedom to move around wire-free. Check your existing items for compatibility.
