Customer Reviews

Based on 203 reviews

Works Great, Easy to set up.

Amazon Customer

I bought this because we upped our internet speeds and still had lagging speeds and connectivity issues with our prior device. I went with the reviews and I was impressed! The instructions for setting it up and activating with our provide were great. I didn’t even need to call the ISP, which saved a ton of time. The WiFi speed, even with multiple devices on it, is the best we’ve had in years. When I need to get a new one in the future, I will definitely be looking at the same brand.

I had modem/router from cable company for about 8 years. I had continuing intermittent issues. I wondered if the the wifi signal could be improved. I suffered too long and should have made a move to a better unit sooner. That being said I think some other pertinent information might elucidate my situation.I have a brick home. The exterior wallboard is backed with some type of foil ( aluminum?). My garage is detached and bout 50 feet away[ direct line] it is aluminum sided. Previously my wifi devices had issues with reception in the garage: not any longer. Based solely on this I am gratified about my my choice and recommend this device.


I think Motorola definitely has a reputation for quality being in the electronics game for a long long time . I love the design of the modem nice and simple but sleek blends in nicely .The signal is outstanding and we can run up all our devices at full speed . No lag gaming is welcoming.The modem runs cool which is reassuring. Expensive but really gets the job done cuts no corners .


I’m so glad I decided to get this! This helped me finally cut the cord and save over $100. I was so skeptical about leaving my internet and TV provider because I thought my service wouldn’t be up to par. I was very wrong. I should have cut the cord and stop paying monthly fees to rent a router and boxes for each tv long ago.
