Re: [Cable] How can I get my SBG6580 Activated with teksavvy? I agree with cerberus, Rogers is just looking more for stolen service than non approved modems. The funny thing is the SBG6580 is in Rogers database but is not on the approved list. One Rogers customer wanting to activate the SB6120 was told that the SBG6580 was in their database but not the SB6120.They had to provision it as an SMC D3 yet the SB6120 or SB6121 is approved for Teksavvy which is supposedly not in Rogers database. It is all about MONEY. Rogers is getting a cheap deal on that SMC garbage. If a customer wants to pay the extra money they should be able to buy the modem that they want. The Motorola SBG6580 is a great modem which I have been using since 2010 on Teksavvy's network. I keep buying Motorola modems because they are reliable and last a long time. They have a proven track record. I have had various Motorola modems since the late 90's when they made analogue ones. If a customer prefers a non gateway model the SB6180 would be a perfect fit for them. That would work just as well. Look at my signal levels, I am using cheap rg59 coax and the modem is still stable. I could increase my levels by upgrading the cable to rg6 but I haven't had the need to.
