I purchased an MB8600 in July 2017 and it worked fine until the end of May 2018. Woke up one morning with no internet service, a comcast tech came out, said bad modem and reinstalled my old sbg6580 docsis 3.0. After countless reboots and reactivations along with contacting Motorola support I was told although we don't know why, next step is to replace the modem. We now have the same problem with the second MB8600, comcast can't activate it. Comcast tech just left here after trying to activate , couldn't figure it out. Installed loaner TG1682G which activates and works. Recommendation is to replace the modem again. Anyone know why comcast can't get the motorola mb8600 to activate?
After checking the tg1682g specs I know why it activates, it is docsis 3.0. Since the tech could not get my mb8600 to activate I specifically asked him if the unit he wanted to loan was docsis 3.1. I thought it would be interesting to see if their equipment worked properly, I already own a working 3.0 modem, why would I want another? Is there a Comcast employee somewhere who will actually take the time to understand a problem?
I'm going to try referring your topic to the resident Experts here who can then escalate your issue to the Comcast corporate employees that are available to these boards. You should get a reply here in your topic.
I'll try to refer this to the resident experts here again.
I've escalated this to the Comcast Official Employees; a response should be forthcoming.
Advanced support called and wanted to fix my problem, three hours eight minutes on the phone before they, the activation group, and someone from docsis 3.1 gave up this time. I was left with we don't know why but, replace your modem again or get a tech onsite for the third time to troubleshoot. I am on my second mb8600 and even ordered a cm1000 which also would not activate, as for the techs I paid for one visit in June and haven't yet received the statement for the visit this month but I am sure there will be another charge.
I escalated your issue again. Hang tight, you should get a response soon.
