Summary: This is a 2nd unit, same problems as the 1st one. It works fine at first, then only sometimes. I am a Time warner user. Problems is It lets you sign in sometimes, then sometimes the devices can't find the wifi, then all of the sudden your connected.

DO NOT BUY if you want a combination cable modem and WiFi.
