How to Install the Arris SB6182

Activating your Arris cable modem is super easy, and generally takes around 30 minutes or so to complete. We recommend taking a picture or writing down your modem’s serial number and CMAC numbers before beginning, as this can help speed things up when you’re on the phone with your provider.

  1. Connect the coaxial cable into the back of your Motorola Surfboard
  2. Connect the power cable into the back of the modem and then plug it into the power outlet.
  3. Wait 5 minutes for your modem to power on & fully boot up.
  4. Call your internet service provider to have them activate your new modem.

After finishing with your activation, make sure to test out your connection by opening any web page. Then, if you’re using a separate WiFi router to supply wireless signal to devices in your home, you can now get that connected.

Arris SB6182 vs Motorola SB6182

There are actually 2 different versions of this model, however both are identical except for branding. Back in 2012, Motorola merged with Arris, and as a result many of their products have varied branding. You may see several other models listed as either Arris or Motorola, but ultimately we want you to know that the Motorola Surfboard SB6182 and the Arris SB6182 are the exact same model – same specs, same compatibility, same everything.
