- Questionwill this work with CenturyLink on 20 mbps? (10 Answers)Answers
NO, not anymore! They're trying to switch all their internet service over to some certain type of technology, so this modem is no longer "approved." I ended up on the phone with Tech Support from Centurylink for over an hour trying to figure out why this stupid thing didn't work. Took them that long to actually check their list and figure it out!

- Questiondo ethernet ports work even when wireless modem is turned off (10 Answers)Answers
Depends on what you mean by "turn off". If you mean "unplug from electricity", the Ethernet ports won't work, because the modem is off. It needs power to run. If by "turn off" you mean "there are no LEDs on the Modem when I turn it off", yeah, it's dead. There are some models that can be powered by the Ethernet cords themselves, but that requires Power over Ethernet support, and the devices connected to the modem to be giving Power over Ethernet... you likely don't have that in your home. If you mean "turn off the Wireless broadcast from the menu," Wireless and Ethernet work independently. Ethernet will work even if Wireless is turned off, generally there is no way to disable ethernet ports on most household-grade modems.

- Questionis it comcast/xfinity compatible (8 Answers)Answers
No, this device is NOT compatible with Comcast/Xfinity. It is to be used with DSL-type providers (not cable). It does not have a battery backup, but configuration settings are persistent across power off/on. Just plug it into a regular home UPC.

- QuestionIs this compatible with a Mac? (9 Answers)Answers
My SB6183 has a power cord, a coax cable, and an ethernet cable. We have the ethernet cable plugged into an Apple Airport Extreme. When everyone has all their devices on (iMAC, iPOD(s), iPAD(s), MacBook(s), iPhone(s), Android(s), and Windows box(s)) we have about 20 happy (mostly) MAC customers.. I would say, "Yes, it's compatible with 20+ MACs."
