And with backwards compatibility to Wireless N, you'll be able to maximize your network now and be prepared for the next wave of wireless tech!

This cutting-edge Motorola SURFboard device is DOCSIS 3.0 certified and combines an ultra-fast cable modem and concurrent dual band (2.4GHz & 5.0GHz) wireless AC router into one device. It's compatible with most major U.S. cable networks and also offers two wired Gigabit Ethernet connections so you can directly connect a game system, smart TV or computer. Wireless isn't going away, it's where were headed, so be ready for it with Motorola.

The Essentials
  • Works with most major U.S. cable providers including Comcast/Xfinity, Time Warner Cable, Cox and more
  • Certified DOCSIS 3.0 modem that's also backwards compatible with DOCSIS 2.0 channel bonding
  • Integrated dual-band concurrent 2.4GHz 802.11n and 5.0GHz 802.11ac Wi-Fi router works with your current equipment and gets you ready for the next wave of wireless tech
  • Two gigabit Ethernet ports for ultra-fast wired connections to compatible game systems, smart TVs and computers
  • Fast data download speeds of up to 343 Mbps reduce lag-time for a better experience
  • 2 x 2 MIMO antennas on the 2.4GHz spectrum and 3 x 3 MIMO antennas on the 5.0GHz spectrum enhance wireless connectivity
  • Dedicated Wi-Fi pairing button with WPS allows for easy device connections to the network
  • Preset Wi-Fi security helps you get connected quickly so you can start streaming
  • Supports latest IPv6 internet standard to expand network addressing capabilities
  • Eight download and four upload channels keeps data flowing freely

Ports: (2) Gigabit Ethernet, (1) Coaxial Cable, (1) Power

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.

Networking FAQs
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:

  • Wireless G - Entry-Level/Budget: Sufficient for surfing the internet, emailing and other basic tasks; If you want to be able to stream content, however, choose a faster speed
  • Wireless N/N+ - Mid-Level: Faster speeds allow for streaming content and connecting to multiple devices
  • Wireless AC - Best in the Market: Great option for high networking use, especially if you want to connect a smart TV or home automation system to your wireless network

Range Extenders
Range Extenders are like a power boost for your wireless router. They allow your signal to travel farther and come in a range of transfer speeds. Extenders can be wireless and/or operate over your power line to bring your signal directly to devices around your home through Ethernet cables. Before purchasing, check your router technology to ensure compatibility.

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.
