I have a Shaw modem sb5101. If I purchase from a previous Shaw customer a model sb5102, will I be able to sometime register the 5102 with Shaw in the event my current modem fails? Also is the model 5102 superior to the 5101?
As far as I can tell there is no difference in performance between the SB5102 and the SB5101, the only differences being the SB5102 removes the standby button at the top of the modem and the usb port on the back. You can register the SB5102 with your account if you so choose, provided the modem was from Shaw. It may be advisable to get the serial # from the previous Shaw Customer and verify with us if this is not a rental modem and if it can be sold. We can check if it's available to be added to your account.
Really, they are the same modem
Would need to get the serial number checked by Shaw to see if it can be used by someone else, not rented, released from their account, stuff like that.
Do you own your modem? Or did you purchase it a while back (I say a while back because Shaw provides free-rentals for the modems), if you rent is there is unlimited warranty from Shaw, if you purchased it, 3 years.
However with the SB51xx modems, I haven't heard of Shaw not replacing one (they aren't worth much) regardless if it was under warranty or not.
