Arris Surfboard SB6183 Modem
What is this?
A DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem.
Why did I buy it?
If you foolishly just call Time Warner Cable and ask for internet, they will be more than happy to give you a modem/router combo that you have no control over and pay for monthly. But if you know literally anything about computers you can break free from their internet shackles and save some money in the process.
Diatribe aside, buying a cable modem instead of renting one will pay for itself within a year. Time Warner says they can't give me support on it since it isn't theirs, but I haven't needed them yet and I sure as hell needed that sweet savings. Plus, when it gets old you actually have something of value to sell.
