    Good capable device... setup can be tedious

    I bought this to replace an Arris SBG6580-2 that had issues with frequent resets and lockups (apparently not uncommon according to reviews) after a few months in service. The Motorola MG7550 is designed in large part by Zoom, and I've had good results with Motorola/Zoom products in the past... and the reviews of the MG7550 gave no reason to think otherwise of this unit. I'm familiar with programming home routers, including features like WiFi MAC access lists, port forwarding, firewall rules, DDNS, and DHCP address reservations. I had all of the necessary information on hand, and I thought getting the MG7550 set-up would be a relatively quick process. The user interface was easy enough to navigate, with on-screen contextual help available for just about every item. Getting the modem activated with Comcast/Xfinity was a quick online process. I then started to program the MG7550's features... and that's where things started to get dicey. Although I was finally able to get everything working properly after several hours (I learned to back up the configuration after each significant change was finally successful), I experienced many inexplicable quirks in the user interface that made what should have been a straightforward process pretty painful. For example, when making entries for DHCP address reservations, all entries except one would enter properly but that one particular entry would cause the DHCP server to switch itself to "disabled" (with the only apparent recovery being a factory reset "start over"... hence the frequent backups through the process). Finally only changing the name of the device I was trying to enter for a DHCP reservation allowed the process to complete. Also, my DDNS entry reported that the DDNS provider was unreachable until, after one of many times cycling the DDNS feature off and back on again, it decided to suddenly work. My guess is that this all reveals a "not ready for prime time" graphical interface behind which is a pretty solid machine. At the end of the day, the MG7550 is working well, with good WiFi coverage for a unit with integrated antennas. The WiFi scanner is a very helpful tool in selecting WiFi channels/bandwidths. Hopefully some updates are forthcoming that will improve the usability of the programming interface... the bad news is with this being a modem/router combo, you're at the mercy of your cable provider as to if or when you'll receive any available updates.

    I bought this cable modem router when I switched to Comcast cable from AT&T DSL. It saves me from renting one from the cable company for $20/ month. It was very easy to set up and has been working flawlessly. I have 250 gb service and have reached speeds of over 280 gb wirelessly through this wifi router with 5G. I was able to save even more money by adding Roku devices to run other TVs in the house connected wirelessly to this router. All total, I am saving over $60 per month with this modem and the Roku Express+ devices with the Comcast app. I can watch all cable channels, as well as DVR'd movies and shows. I cannot record from the Rokus, but I can record on the Comcast DVR and watch on Rokus, phones and tablets.

    After suffering for two years with the crappy router/modem from Spectrum I finally broke down and bought this. Now I feel so foolish for putting up with the old one! Since I hooked this up we have not lost connection on any device once with the old one we lost connections sometimes six or seven times a day and were always having to reset it as well..and it doubled the range of the old one as well. Both bands come thru strong even outside my house. We have a booster and don’t use it anymore...we are able to have PS4 online, a laptop gaming online and two more laptops surfing and watch Netflix with no issues all at the same time. I hope it lasts! But so far it is better than I had even hoped for.

    Perfect router for non-tech savvy people!

    Ok so I am not tech savvy. All I knew was that my old router wasn’t working properly because it kept dropping my WiFi requiring me to reset it constantly. I tried a well know router brand (name whom I won’t mention) but it was horrible, the tv screens kept pixelating. So I bought this unit, which said it had the same technical features as the other brand, such as number of channels etc, and this one performed amazing!! No breaks in streaming throughout a 1500 sq ft house. And my son can play Xbox and have a laptop in use and 2 WiFi connected Netflix’s TVs on in house and no one has interrupted or slow WiFi service. Setup was super easy, and no more modem fees, yay! Highly recommend!

    Great modem/router for a fair price

    I originally purchased a ARRIs 1600 Surfboard modem router. After giving it a test run, I noticed a few quirks that I was not happy with. The Arris ran super hot. I also experienced a large frequency of lagging and buffering issues. Returned the Arris and got the Motorola 7550 modem/ router. What an improvement. The Motorola unit has 16 X 4 channel mode, significantly reducing lag time and buffering. Very easy to install. Was up and running in less than 15 minutes. Just called Comcast, to activate my service and was up and running in no time. The price was very fair. Another plus factor, this unit has a 2 year mfg warranty. Pretty impressive.

    Got this to replace a 2 year old Netgear model that just died. Works OK, but doesn't seem to have quite the oomph the other one did. Reception out in the shop is spotty, same with the back bedroom. Not like we live in a giant house either. The other thing is that I can't use my printer if I'm running on the 5G side with the computer. Just won't recognize it until I swap to the other band. Can't get any of our devices besides my iMac & iPhone to even use the 5G side. Never had that problem before. Maybe I should have stuck with a Netgear product................

    After five years of reliable service our Motorola SB6580 started to have internet connectivity issues even with hardwired connections - so we replaced it with a Motorola Dual Band AC1900 Router. No more connectivity problems with this router; it has 4 LAN connections, easy installation and easy online activation through the Comcast website, no phone call necessary... So far we have noticed an increase in download speed and our aging Apple TV performs works better streaming Netflix, Youtube, etc.
