ARRIS TG862 Gateway Review




What do you think about this video?

Genesis Ex: This is a router and modem. it has a 2.4 and 5 mghz. For game consoles and several other devices formats like labtops and or phones the 5 mgh won't show. Which has higher mbs download speeds through connectivity. So therefor It's not good for gaming. The 2.4 is allowed accessible but it is very low frequent wifi usage in which causes low mbs download speeds (connection). Took me while to understand this stuff, but hopefully it'll make sense.

The Chosen Juan: This review isn't true at all, the wifi gets worse everyday and the ethernet connection doesn't produce even a fourth of what it specifies. I can't even connect to the wifi unless I'm 10 feet from the router, and the internet speed is literally getting worse everyday. Just last month I was watching videos at 720p while buffering, and today I'm having trouble loading 240p videos. This device is garbage and nobody should get it.

O Fonseca: got this to streamline my setup but WiFi is garbage on this device so I ended up using my old router for wireless :-(

TheyCallMeGunny: Sorry I took 2 years to approve some comments. Been unplugged for a long time.

Jonathan “Rowdy” Turner: I figured I would leave you this food for thought. I actually don't mess around on YT too much but I came across this video and had to comment. I'm giving you this information speaking as a DOCSIS engineer. I worked for CableLabs who is responsible for granting or denying DOCSIS certification on vendor CMTS's & CM's. The Arris TG862 also falls under the name of TouchStone so you said you could not find any information on this router. well here it is for you in all its glory at the Arris website. https://www.arrisi.com/support/documentation/user_guides/_docs/TG862G-CT_User_Guide_Standard1-0.pdf I hope that helps you out some. It really is a nice piece of equipment. I was at CableLabs in Louisville Colorado from DOCSIS 1.0 to 3.0 so compared to what we started with in the DOCSIS industry this piece of networking equipment might as well have beamed itself from the future. During my DOCSIS engineering days I was partial to the Motorola Surfboard but the Arris was always my favorite CMTS to run data through and now their CM's are catching up to the reliability of their CMTS's so again, nice equipment to have. I'm running 125 down and anywhere from 25 to 32 up on my Arris TG862. I am however going to make a call though and get the latest and greatest that CL certified and I bet that runs even better. Anyways hope that link helps and works for ya. Take Care!!!

Pyro Gaming: i want to freaking break this piece of cow crap over xfinity CEO's head

773steve: works on my jtag 360 is there some thing better i can buy  iam renting the one i have now  and want to own my own

SuperJumpReviews: this modem/router hates my ps4.  Good luck trying to connect it to an xbox 360 slim.  

shane premraj: What is the battery for? They never give me the battery with the modem 

Terence Sullivan: Stash looks good too... LOL

SCUDFORCE1: I just deactivated mine from comcast and set up my old router and modem, this product is complete garbage I have the 50mbps and with that TG862 unit i was getting 12-17 if you are into gaming online I strongly advise not to use this product. I knew something was up when both my PS4 and PS3 would not log on at all

Ben Dover: This thing doesn't even deserve to be called a piece of crap it is worse. I have been having issues ever since it updated it's firmware. It hates my desktop and ps4 yet a freaking netbook will connect to it. It is either fast or it doesn't work at all freak this junk gateway.

João Pimentel Jr: Hi. Do you know how is the speed of the ethernet ports?

TheCApacifica: We got the same Cable Modom , I would like to know is there any Driver disk that came in the package  ,I wasn't here when it got Installed in are network
 or any download from the super Highway , Thanks Pal
waiting on your Answer.  

ATL Shogun: worst wifi ever ... hates any chipset besides atheros. wont work at all with ralink, or realtek. works sometimes with bcm. it hates marvell chipsets too. wps pushbutton only works once trying to setup another computer requires yhou to restart the router. hates xbox 360 especially on wireless. does not work well with windows 8 ... on and on and on. forced me to run ethernet cables and switches to every room in my house.third party cable modems are expensive ($200) and hard to setup with comcast.

JAYZIGGY5: It's a TG862G CT. There's all kinds of info on it. I have the SMCd3gmv which looks exactly the same as that just with a different name on the back, I bought it for $40 on ebay. I use a netgear N900 wireless router instead of the built in wireless although it does work. I've been using it for a couple years no with no issues. I think most of these people have problems with their internet signal or service and not the router itself.

HeroMeetsEvil: I can't wait until I get the crap ball ass modem out my house.

illstplaya: It's trash. It will change your nat type to moderate from open. And there is no way to change it back if you are using it as a modem only. My personal router is fine but this modem will change your nat type to moderate. 

Iris Dolphin: is there a way to set up a NAT Loopback for this router?? having trouble setting up for running my own sim on OSgrid?

Dashock07: this is worst piece of crap ive ever worked with. it drops wireless packets so your wifi signal is unstable and you arent able to stream any high quality media. And i have a 30mbps connection. Its better to bridge this piece of junk and use a Linksys or Dlink router.
