I just recently upgraded to unlimited internet and the 75u package, making me vsit a store and upgrade and pickup a 'rocket modem'. All is well, but I see now that online and in many pics, that its actually to stand vertically..
And the pic of the roger site shows a BASE of some type...I never received this item.
box with ac cord
all shrinkwrapped in poly as one item at a rogers store
Re: Love my new Rocket Modem, but WHERES THE STAND?
Dont take this as anything official..
But on one of the tech visits as my house.. when i switched from the Rocket to one of the newer ones (needed for some of the higher packages). Said that they were no longer including the base anymore.
I think mostly, even while shrinkwraped etc, that most people are not getting NEW modems, and are re-furbished ones.. ones that have been used by other users, go back, reset, tested, etc and sent back out. And 90% of the people probably didnt return the stand.
Thank you for posting your concern in the Community. I know how concerning it can be to get a new device only to worry that there may be some parts missing.
We have had several models of the modem you are using, the original models did come with a stand but the newer models (which has the same exterior appearance) do not come with the stands. The modem has a flat bottom and is designed to stand upright without a stand as long as the surface is flat.
It should not to placed on its side as this will not promote a strong WiFi signal throughout the home.
