CM1150V Manuals and Guides
Installation Of Your New NETGEAR Nighthawk CM1150V
During the installation of the NETGEAR Nighthawk CM1150V, connect your router or computer only to LAN port 1 on the cable modem. A plug covers LAN ports 2, 3, and 4 because they are only for Ethernet port aggregation. After installation, you can remove this plug to connect a router that supports Ethernet port aggregation. For more information, refer to the CM1150V user manual.
- Turn off and disconnect existing modems and routers. If you are replacing a modem that is currently connected to your home,
unplug the modem and plug the new cable modem into the same outlet.
- Use a coaxial cable to connect the cable port on the cable modem to a cable wall outlet. Make sure that the cable is tightly connected. We recommend that you connect your cable modem directly to a cable wall outlet. If you must share the connection, use a 3.5dB (1 to 2) splitter. Find It On Amazon
- If you have Xfinity Voice, connect your phone to the Tel 1 port on the cable modem with the phone cable. If you subscribed to two phone lines, connect the other phone to the Tel 2 port. Note: The Tel 2 port only works for a two-phone line subscription.
- Connect the power adapter to the CM1150V and plug the power adapter into a power outlet. The cable modem might reset multiple times when it is powered on.
Wait For All Lights To Turn Green
- Wait for the Online LED to light solid green. This process might take up to 10 minutes. When the cable modem comes
online, the Online LED stops blinking and lights solid green. After 10 minutes, if the Online LED doesn’t light solid, make sure that the cable outlet is working, or call your Internet service provider (ISP) to make sure you have service.
Note: When the Online LED lights solid, your cable modem is not connected to the Internet yet. You must connect a router or computer to your CM1150V, and then activate your cable modem with your cable Internet provider.

Finally decided to upgrade my Xfinity-provided and woefully unreliable Modem/Router combo to this Modem and Netgear R7000 Router (which I also highly recommend) and the difference is incredible! Before I was only getting 90 Mbps and frequent dropouts and now I've been getting a consistent 200 Mbps (keep in mind I'm only on a 175 Mbps plan) and so far absolutely no dropouts or slowdowns! I was expecting a minor improvement but I was not expecting this much of an improvement! The set-up was straightforward and easy as well! I would totally recommend this Modem for anyone looking for an upgrade with Voice capability and is definitely worth the price (now saving $14 a month in rental fees) All in all I am very happy with this purchase and will be buying Netgear products for years to come.
Thanks for the review
