Re: [Cable] How can I get my SBG6580 Activated with teksavvy?

It's probably a shame as if you did put it as a SB6120 you'd probably only get 4/4 channel bonding instead of 8/4.

The model number has nothing to do with how many channels the modem will bond, it will bond the with the most available channels available on the CMTS and how many channels the modem will support.

Correct, the bonding happens BEFORE the modem is even authorized.
Unauthorized modems bond channels, and then are usually sent to the rogers walled garden where they can order Rogers service (provided the modem firmware can handle it).
While it is possible for Rogers to check, they dont make sure the modem is the model you say it is.
This was made ABUNDANTLY clear when Rogers users started registering Motorola SB6120's as SMC D3 gateways a few years ago.
So basically any docsis 3 modem is fine...... just say its one of the supported modems....

HOWEVER, dont complain to TekSavvy if your unsupported modem EVER has an issue!! You wont get any help there.
