Should a US cable modem work in Guatemala?


A friend in Guatemala just replaced his Eltel model ET5300 cable modem with a TP-LINK Model No. TC-7610 (that someone donated to the cause), imported from the US. Should he expect it to work? I just skimmed the docs and don't see anything country-relevant.

I don't see why not. As long as the correct credentials are used, the PPPoE service (I assume that's the network protocol used for the service) should work ok.

Most cable modems adhere to the DOCSIS standard. It is internationally accepted, there appears to be a European variant (haven't read any real details why it is different). In the end, it depends if Guatemala's cable system uses the international standard versus not. I suspect it probably will, however also probably worth a search by you or your friend, to verify.
