I moved a couple months ago and I have been a little challenged. I have put together a TV stand, dining room table and chairs, hooked up my surround sound, hung curtains, and hung some heavy pictures. All of these I am proud to say I accomplished, but when it came to hooking up my wireless modem, not so good, well at first anyway. I refuse to pay the cable company to rent a modem. I just don’t understand why you would pay money to rent something when you can buy it cheaper or for the same cost. I was lucky because I didn’t have to buy one. I had a friend that wasn’t using her router and another that wasn’t using her wireless modem so they donated them to me. How hard can it be to hook up? Well I got the modem hooked up but still had no idea why I couldn’t get the wireless router to work causing me to have to sit at my desk to work or play. I was lucky once again when I was presented the opportunity to review the SURFBOARD® SBG6782-AC: GATEWAY BY ARRIS.
ARRIS Surfboard Modem and WiFi Router
I didn’t even have to think about it I accepted right away. I am a little, well maybe very technically challenged, l read what the device has to offer, everything sounded wonderful and technical. I was impressed when I discovered that ARRIS created Digital TV and the first wireless broadband gateway WOW !
The Surfboard arrived on a Friday and it so happened that I had an appointment with the cable company for my TV on Saturday morning. The ARRIS Surfboard was sitting on my desk and the cable guy noticed it right away commenting on how great the ARRIS Surfboard is and how I was going to be extremely pleased with the speed. I told him all that sounds great as long as I can hook it up, hint, hint. He didn’t really take the hint but he did say it is easy, just hook it up to the cable, plug it in and search your wireless connections. Once you find the one that has the model number click on it and it will guide you to set it up, you can do it he said with a smile . I smiled back thinking sure I can do it, its easy, easy for him to say, but to my delight he was right. I had WiFi within minutes and it was wireless…….. no more being tied to my desk. I was thrilled and even more thrilled to see how fast the WiFi is in every part of my house. It is easy to install and easy to use.
