Arris SB6183 Manual & Product Guides

How to Activate Arris SB6183

Activating your Arris SB6183 is the first step you need to take after unboxing your new modem. It’s a fairly simple process, and we recommend setting aside about an hour of your time to ensure you’re able to complete the whole activation.

  1. Plug in your new modem the same as the one it’s replacing. Make sure power cable is plugged in and coaxial cable is screwed in on the back as well. It’s recommended to do this and then wait an hour before calling your provider, if possible, so that your modem can download whatever firmware is needed for the activation.
  2. Next, call your provider and let them know that you’re doing an activation with a self-install of your new modem. They’ll ask you for a few of the numbers on the bottom of the unit and then proceed to get your modem added to your account and service plan.
  3. The call will end after the representative verifies with you that you have an internet connection. You can test this for yourself simply by visiting a few websites.

Your modem is now activated!

How to Reset Arris SB6183

Resetting your Arris SB6183 is one of the easiest ways to correct almost all common technical issues that you may experience over the life of your modem. It’s a super handy tool to have in your troubleshooting repertoire and can save you hours on the phone with your provider. Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Plug your modem in to the power supply and wait 2 minutes for it to boot up fully. You’ll know it’s booted fully when the wireless lights come on.
  2. Locate the reset button on the back of the modem. It’ll be on the same side where all the ports are located. Generally reset buttons on this kind of device will just be a tiny hole that may or may not be labeled.
  3. You’ll need a flattened paperclip or pen cartridge to do this next part. Press down and hold the reset button for 30 seconds with your modem still plugged in. You should feel a small dull click when you press in the reset button with your paperclip.
  4. Now wait a few minutes for your modem to reset and reboot itself. You’ll know it’s finished and ready to use when the WiFi lights come back on.

Tip: Still not resetting? Try just holding down for 15 or 20 seconds instead of the full 30. Some firmware versions differ on the number of seconds needed for a reset.

How to Find Your IP Address

This method works on Windows computers and does not require any software to be downloaded. You’ll be using command prompt to find the internal IP address so you can log into your WiFi router or modem router’s settings panel.

  1. Click the start menu in the bottom left of your screen.
  2. In the search bar in your start menu, type in “cmd.exe” and then click on that program when it appears in the search.
  3. When the program opens, you’ll see a black window on your screen with white text.
  4. Type into the program “ipconfig“, then hit Enter. Your window should look like the one shown below. The IP address circled below shows where your internal IP address will be on your command prompt window. Now you can move on to accessing your modem or modem router’s settings admin panel.

10 reviews for Arris SB6183 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem – Black

  1. Oliver M.

    Worked well to start, but after only 4 months of use I woke up one morning to find all the status lights off with the exception of a single flashing light that indicated that I was no longer getting an IP connection. Customer service was initially friendly, but without an Ethernet cable on my Mac laptop, I wasn’t able to access the modem’s diagnostics and despite still being under warranty, ARRIS claimed to be unable to issue a replacement without running a test first. Since they said they would have to take my credit card number down as collateral anyway, I didn’t see the sensibility in the company taking this position. I’m really dissapointed I paid $90 for 4 months use of this product.

    WORKS GREAT!!!!!!! Way better than my Mediacom DOCSIS 3 modem and it’ll pay for itself in less than a year!!! No more giving my cable company $7.50/month as a fuggin rental fee!!! I switched this, a new router and double my internet speed and I went from 16 mbps wirelessly at peak usage time, to 259 mbps the same exact time!!!! Feel free to send me some free stuff ARRIS, for this awesome review 😉

    This was a super simple install. Hooked it up and went through the basic setup on the device no need to remote in from a computer or let your internet installer know your password. The screen is easy to navigate and you have full control over every thing. Will update as I get more use out of it but so far it’s great!

    Do yourself a favor and save the $10 month modem lease fee. I’m on Time Warner Cable legacy and this modem works perfectly.Simple to install.Screw in coax cable, plug in ethernet cable and then power cable. The modem boots up until all lights are solid. Call your cable company and give them the modem’s MAC address. The cable company does their thing, they reboot modem and you’re online. Very easy process. Anyone can do it. Important: Make sure the cable company confirms your account is changed to “customer owned modem”. This way you won’t pay the $10 lease fee.This is a very small modem, when compared to the huge modem from the cable company. The modem does get warm, but not hot. I’ve read where some said it was super hot. I haven’t noticed that. Just warm to the touch. What I would recommend: keep this modem in a well ventilated area. The modem has ventilation holes all around it. I wouldn’t cover or block any of them. Give the modem some room around the top and sides.You can access the modem’s web interface via 192.168.100.1, where you can see your cable signals and event log. If you ever have issues with your Internet, your cable signals and event log can help the cable company troubleshoot your service. Performance has been great. I’m on 60/5 Mbps Internet and get 70/6 consistently on Wi-Fi. The SB6183 is paired with an ASUS RT-AC1900P Wireless Router and they function perfectly together. I’m thinking just about any wireless router will work with this modem.I purchased this modem. You should too and spend that $10 elsewhere.

    The modem seems to work fine if only connected to a computer. The problem starts if you want to connect a Wi-Fi router. I tried connecting this modem to a Norton Power Core and immediately lost my internet connection. Both the modem and the router are made to be compatible with IPv4 but not with IPv6. Apparently, Spectrum, the ISP, sends a signal that contains both IPv4 and IPv6. Although the modem will work on its own, it cannot communicate with my router because of the signal from Spectrum. Of course, Spectrum’s only solution is to rent equipment from them and put up with their exorbitant, ever increasing rental fees. I’ll have to return the modem once I found out if there is a modem that’s compatible with an IPv4 router and their signal. (They won’t adjust the signal because I don’t rent their equipment.)

    Updated my old modem, didn’t really need the 32 so went with this. Easy to set up, the worst part was calling Rectum to change over the mac address. Speeds were noticeably faster right off the bat. I was pulling 70 to 80mbs before and 120 to 130 now. Can’t beat that.

    So far so good. Got this modem as a replacement for the Arris AC6700. I got a separate router to go with the 6183. It’s been working fine.I will update this if there are any serious issues or if it ever happens to stop working.For reference, I have Spectrum.

    I originally attempted to upgrade my Arris SB6141 with the most advanced net connection tech available in my area. Motorola Ultra Fast DOCSIS 3.1 Cable Modem, Model MB8600, plus 32×8 DOCSIS 3.0, Certified by Comcast Xfinity, Cox, and more It ran amazingly fast but, at my location, Comcast does not provide a clean enough line to maintain a stable 32 channel downstream data flow. This modem constantly dropped the signal, repeatedly needing, hard resets, countless times per day. I then decided to upgrade to the ARRIS SB6183 with its 16 downstream channels. Upon connection and provision by Comcast . . . VOILA! A stable, much faster broader-band connection. It isn’t near as fast as the iffy DOCSIS 3.1 connection, but is decidedly faster and is less susceptible to slowdowns during peak use hours, than the SB6141. So, until the cable infrastructure and various broadband delivery hardware from the original components installed in the 1970’s are upgraded, I do not see the promises of DOCSIS 3.1 fulfilled in my area. Guess none of us should hold our breath for cable upgrades. The new 5G cellular standard is expected to provide gigabit broadband wirelessly. That explains to me why my cable company is now bundling-in mobile phone services that charge only for data. Cheers.

    Bought this for my office when I realized that Comcast was charging me $17/month for an 8-year old modem. Wow – what a profit center…for Comcast! I replaced that financial drain with this modem in about 15 minutes, called Comcast and they provided the final sync. Four months to breakeven and I’m saving money every month after that. Not bad.

    Awesome modem and is supported by Comcast. I love the feature that I can turn off the activity lights in the front, so at night my room isn’t just flashing like crazy. This modem is seriously like the best one you can get for the price, speeds, and a quality brand. Don’t need any more expensive models because most ISP plans can’t even cap out this modem. Be smart, buy only what you need, don’t waste money on modems that are for people with top-tier ISP plans.

    I’ve had this for about a month now and so far it works fine. Once my internet service was activated all I had to do was plug the coax cable into the back, plug in the power adapter and start it up. It had no problem detecting my internet service. It hasn’t lost the connection since as far as I can tell, although there have been some service interruptions which I believe are the fault of the ISP. I plugged a new NETGEAR WIFI router into this and the combination works fine. I chose this model for the warranty, the good reviews, and the fact that it’s recognized by COMCAST/XFINITY. Unless it fails within the next year I think I made a good choice.

    Just installed this modem to replace my rented Optimum modem. Wow, nearly double the speed! Had some difficulty installing this thing since there was no instructions with the modem (knocked a star off for that). It doesn’t even mention how to access the modem setup menu. Did a quick google search and found that in order for this to work with optimum in Connecticut, you have to register the modem at install.optimum.com. Once i registered it, the modem worked flawlessly.

    I purchased this from Walmart & has been working great ever since installation. I did need an WiFi router (Netgear N300) that I had purchased over a year prior. It was needed for the Ethernet connection. Once Xfinity got me up & running, everything’s fine & I’m paying $11 less on my monthly bill.

    Excellent, value-oriented replacement for my old docsis 3.0 modem that Comcast told me was limiting my bandwidth to sub-150 levels. After installing this modem, my wifi devices showed bandwidth of 150mbs+It’s a modem. Most people aren’t at 1g so why pay so much more for that functionality? With that said, if you have Fiber and 5mbs-1g speeds, ignore this review and invest in a 1g modem so you don’t waste money on that bandwidth.

    I had to send this back, not because anything was wrong with it, but because I know nothing about electronics. I bought this to replace my rental Comcast modem. I did not realize I needed a router as well. So I sent this back and ordered a modem/router combo box. If you have your own router, then buy this. very easy setup. if you need a modem AND router, either buy this and a separate router or buy a combo of the two in one product.

    I purchased 400mbps from my provider, this modem directly connected to your pc using hard cat 6 network wire it doesn’t even go close to 400 speeds, I had to have spectrum provide me with one of their modems and it was working perfect and it was free. Not so sure if this one was a bad unit but I am sure it didn’t deliver what the manufacturer was promising.
