  1. What is disappointing is that you added LANDLINE ports instead of just doing 4 Ethernet ports, utterly disappointed in this as I don't even use phone line cables, what am i telus?

  2. Unfortunately with this modem you can connect only 2 Ethernet cable and the range is not good as 5G as it was on the 150 modem

  3. When i first got the Shaw Modem from Retail Store. I didn,t know what the Modem does Period. Nor i ever owned one. Anyways took the Modem home & Quickly study on how to set it up. At first thinking of calling a buddy up to Assist me. Cause he know these things. So i Call Shaw instead for Assistance. Meanwhile i,m Fiddling around which wires goes where. Finally. got everything set up. The modem was ready to use. So i used the SSID Numbers & Password. And Voila. my WIFI was set to take it,s first run on my Cellphone. It showed the WIFI Symbol on the screen. Boy was i Reliefed.

  4. Shaw should rename themselves rickshaw because they are so fn' slow. I got internet 150 two years ago and never saw speeds above 15 Mbps wireless.

  5. Are both of the bottom two ports for Ethernet? I connected my alarm system to the Ethernet port and it doesn't seem to be working (the amber light is flashing but not the green part).
