I’ve been looking for a new router for my Home office and I was excited to hear about the Surf SOHO.
I headed over to the Peplink forum and started reading about a WAN connectivity problem that others have experienced when pairing with their Arris SURFboard / Motorola SB model cable modems. I saw a fix posted on a peplink forum thread here:
SB6121 Cable Modem.
After reading on though, I discovered other user’s tried the fix without resolving the problem and I started to wonder whether this fix has resolved the connectivity issue on more models of Arris SB cable modems.
Some users stated they had not been able to resolve this with the fix posted on this thread:
I really am interested in purchasing a Surf SOHO MK3, but I happen to own an Arris SB 6183 and if these two don’t play nice together, I may need to find another comparable router somewhere. I’m not looking forward to have to go through hours of troubleshooting, only to learn I might have to settle for a workaround to resolve this issue as a permanent fix.
I’m looking to drill down and find out if Peplink can say they have tested and resolved to date this issue since the last posted fix in January '17 which worked for some people, while for some others it didn’t.
Thank you in advance
