Looks like we've just updated the specs on our page here: Hardware Information - Motorola SB5100 Internet Modem
Thank you for the clarification.
One more question - If I replace my existing Motorola SB5101 with the new Motorola SB6141, what steps would be required to ensure the functionality?
Where did you get a SB6141 from?
Shaw had the SB6120's for a short period of time and they are very hard to get now...
The SB6141 bonds 8 channels down, Shaw never had this modem, to the best of my knowledge.
kevinds is correct. The SB6141 is not a modem that we use on our system.
There are currently two options for Docsis 3 modems from us: the SMC D3GN and the Cisco DPC 3825. More information on both can be found here: Shaw Internet Modems - Equipment Guide
Both of the Docsis 3 modems there are what we provide as our in-home wireless networking products. However they can be set to bridge mode and act just as a modem if you want to use your own router. They are also required for any package above High Speed 25.
I currently have the SB5102 and High Speed 10 package. According to the Shaw Speedtest, the results are at the upper limit of the SB5102 ~30Mbps. I would like to use a modem with an upper limit much greater than the SB5102.
Would Shaw require anything other than the MAC address of the new modem?
We would need the serial number of the new modem. But, what I'm saying is that we will not be able to make a SB6141 modem work for you because it's not a modem that we use in our system. We only allow a modem to be used if it is of the type that we supply. This document has them all listed: Shaw Internet Modems - Equipment Guide
Shaw will not activate a modem (or any hardware) that doesn't come from Shaw.
It follows the DOCSIS protocols, so it would work, but Shaw will not activate it.
The Cisco DPC3825 would work for a better modem, bridge it, and it acts like a modem with channel bonding.
I can purchase the SB6141 in the U.S. Shaw would probably require the MAC address from the modem; anything else?
We actually don't register modems that are from out of our system. The SB6120 might work because we technically do use it, but we don't normally supply it anymore. The SB6141 is not a modem we use in our system, so that would not work at all.
