My 6141, model below this is already 'end of life' on Comcast systems. Tech told me that last week. Not that they won't work, as they should, but not sure if they give you a hard time activating one (say a backup) if they don't support it

This is a GREAT price.

Definitely an excellent price. Ordered 1. Thanks OP!

Excellent price, and excellent modem.

 You just plug it in. I just started using a 6121 a few months ago, that I got cheap at a yard sale. No activation. It does lose connection a lot, but so did my previous Motorola SURFboard SB5100 (made by Zebra).  I read recently that the Arris modems are noted for this.  So I'm wondering what brand is better.

Edit: Seems maybe my 6121 is made by Zebra too. Confusing.

How can it work without Comcast propagating it?  They need to enter the MAC address in your account for it to work.

 

With Comcast, you can register the modem yourself (with your user name and password) when you first turn on the modem.

Dead ? shows $44.99 for me

You used to.  Not anymore.
