Last week I bought myself a new Motorola MB8611 DOCSIS 3.1 modem, and plugged everything in to go through the activation process. This is the third time I've replaced my modem so I'm familiar with it and have never had issues.
This time though, trying to go to /activate and follow the steps - if the pages bother to load - is painfully slow. Finally, if I manage to get to the user login part of the process, it throws a 503 "Service is down or overloaded" error. I've done this multiple times in the last week and get the same response.
Is there something wrong with the service? Is there something wrong with the modem?
