Is this cable modem obsolete?



New Member
Please pardon my ignorance of networking hardware. :)

I dug up a Motorola SURFboard SB5101 while packing up to move.

I plan to have cable internet when I move to Vancouver.

Is this thing still current, and can I use it in Vancouver to dodge the $5 rental fee per month? Or is it obsolete and should I sell it on ebay?

Or c) none of the above, should I sell this, and purchase another cable modem of your recommendation to dodge $5 rental fees per month?



Those Motorola cable modems were/are pretty decent.
Better than some other brands cable companies typically dump on customers.

With that said,
Check with the ISP, cable company in Vancouver, if model is supported.
