Introduction

Arris has long been a world leader in cable technologies, after 2013 when it acquired Motorola's Home Division they picked up several brands we use in our homes. One of those was the Surfboard product lineup, commonly known as the default modem for many service providers. Moving to today, Arris is looking to push its brand into the consumer market expanding the Surfboard brand to routers, starting with the SBR-AC1750.

 

 

The Surfboard AC1750 is a dual-band 802.11ac solution that leverages the 2.4GHz band for peak throughput of 450Mbps while the 5GHz band tops out at 1300Mbps. Four gigabit Ethernet ports are paired with a single WAN and like many modern solutions this router too houses a USB 3.0 port on the rear. The antennas for this solution are a 3x3 internal configuration and speaking of the internals of this unit; I was unable to find any information on the CPU, RAM or flash on this particular unit online, but that didn't stop me from finding out for myself as you will see on the next page.

Specifications, as mentioned above, were a bit sparse but nonetheless seen above. As the model suggest, this solution is an AC1750 wireless solution with five Gigabit Ethernet ports placed on the rear of the unit. While this solution does use the latest 802.11ac technology, it still maintains backwards compatibility with a, b, g and n networks.
