Re: Oceanic Cable and SBG 6580 Wireless Settings

I've never had an issue with the 6580. I dont use the wireless myself, but i was just curious why it was locked. I just bridge the modem and run off my Airport Extreme. I didnt know oceanic offered the 6141. Maybe i might inquire about that modem since i dont the wireless feature!

Turbo, Extreme users also qualify for no additional fee. Just need to call and ask to add the wireless feature on the account

No, Turbo does not qualify. I was told that I had to pay $4 a month more if I wanted wireless on it turned on and they brought this to my home when I upgraded to 20/2.

The ONLY modems given out currently by Oceanic here on the Big Island are the 6580 and 6141 if you subscribe to 20/2 and above tiers. Standard tier and value tier still get DOCSIS 2 modems I think. If you have Oceanic phone also then you need two modems if you have 20/2 and above. This could have changed recently though as Oceanic was testing an all in one (phone and internet) DOCSIS 3 modem. Tests showed problems and I don't know if that has been worked out yet or not.
