    • Very easy installation with no customer support required.
    • I already made the installation, easy installation,one call phone to my cable service company all set
    • It was the smoothest installation I did in 25 years of using PCs and networks.
    • Pretty impressive since most of the products that claim easy installation fail to be setup properly since they can't even load the initial web page correctly

    • Great option for upgrading from aproved internet service providers rental modem routers better range dual-band option much better traffic control helps with even slower speed service for youre devices
    • Our internet speed had been increased but instead we were getting slower speeds and half the time no internet at all
    • I have 55 Mbps and the laptops in the house get that speed through the router just fine.
    • --I switched internet providers due to VERY slow speed, and decided to purchase a modem rather than paying monthly.
    • With this Motorola modem plus wifi router, the wireless speed drastically improved

    • Great coverage for my 2,500 sf house; works perfectly well without even being located near the center of the house (my wife did not approve it!) ; several items using the WiFi, without any issues: two computers, one laptop, 2 cellphones, one tablet, two firesticks, an Apple TV box; at any time, at least 60% of all those items are working at the same time, with no apparent slow down, in the real life, not measured with any type of equipment, that of course would show that there are too many pieces of equipment using the available bandwidth at the same time, but again, not noticeable slow down in the daily life
    • Even when placed in the center of the house, the wifi's loses 50% of its strength between floors
    • The 5G wifi is very fast and has a decent range as well (I live in an apartment, can't say how good it is for a house)
    • The 5G WiFi worked great (not many people use 5Ghz WiFi, so lots of open channels), but since I have an older Ring doorbell i needed to use 2.4 Ghz.

    • I was cheap and got the cheaper version but internet was slow AF
    • I didnt want to mess with seperate modem and router, figuring that the way technology prices fall, if either component of this one dies down the road, i can get a newer version for just as little.
    • Unfortunately for me, COX does not support this particular version of the MG product line
