I am not happy with the modem provided by Shaw.  It is terrible and causes me no end of problems with my internet and my local network.

 

My question is simple, can I buy a MOTOROLA SB6141 DOCSIS 3.0 modem to replace the Shaw CISCO WIFI/ROUTER/MODEM that was provided with my 50MB High Speed connection???

Right now I have my ShawCISCO device plugged into my dlink router which solves my extremely high latency issues but still gives me problems resolving DNS in a consistent manner.  So I would like to just rid myself of this stupid wifi modem that I don't want and don't need.  When I had one of the older motorola modems I didn't have connection problems, life was simple and my internet worked all the time.shaw config.PNG
