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
