Frequently Asked Questions
Here are answers to questions our customers frequently ask.
Q
What is high-speed cable Internet access?
A
Cable Internet access uses cable television wires instead of telephone lines to connect to the Internet. It is extremely fast and affordable and
does not tie up telephone lines for incoming or outgoing calls and faxes.
Q
How fast are cable modems?
A
Cable modems offer Internet access at speeds up to 100 times faster than a traditional phone modem. You can experience speeds of over
1,000 Kbps. Due to network condition such as traffic volume and the speed of the sites you visit, actual speed may vary. Many network and
other factors can affect download speeds.
Q
Can I still watch cable TV while using my cable modem?
A
Yes, your cable TV line can carry the TV signal while you send and receive information on the Internet.
Q
What are CableLabs Certified, DOCSIS and Euro-DOCSIS?
A
CableLabs® Certified™, DOCSIS™, and Euro-DOCSIS™ are the industry standards for high-speed data distribution over cable television
system networks. They are intended to ensure that all compliant cable modems interface with all compliant cable systems. Your Motorola
SURFboard cable modem is DOCSIS or Euro-DOCSIS certified.

Q
If I have a cable modem, can I still use my old 28.8 Kbps or 56 Kbps modem?
A
Yes! Although once you’ve experienced the speed of cable Internet access, you’ll never again want to wait for traditional dial-up services.
Q
I have more than one computer. Do I need more than one SURFboard cable modem?
A
No, not if your computers are connected on a network. The SURFboard cable modem supports current Internet connection sharing
technologies to enable you to connect up to 32 PCs to the Internet using a single cable modem.
Q
Do I need to change my Internet service provider (ISP)?
A
Currently, most Internet service providers do not provide cable Internet access. Contact your cable company for your specific information.
Q
Do I need to subscribe to cable TV to get cable Internet access?
A
No, but you will need to subscribe to cable Internet service. Some systems require that you subscribe to basic service before you can get
Internet access and/or offer a discount when you use your own cable modem. Check with your local cable company for specific information.
Q
What type of technical support is available?
A
For questions about your Internet service, connection, or cable modem, call your cable service provider.
Q
What do I do if my SURFboard cable modem stops working?
A
“Troubleshooting” on page 35 provides tips to diagnose problems and simple solutions. If you continue to have problems, call your cable
service provider.
