You should look at the list of Xfinity supported devices for your service level -- https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/list-of-approved-cable-modemsAlso which Arris Surfboard is the one I want?
Modems are pretty basic devices. You won't control the firmware on that device, the ISP will. Unless you like the looks of one, or the mounting options of another, it won't really matter. Get the one you can get the best deal on.Thanks. Everything I am considering is 3.1. Have narrowed it to 1 of 3 and all 3 are approved as compatiple with my Xfinity 1 gig (which I want to bump to 2 gig even though there is no such thing) . The 3 are the Netgear CM2000 or Motorola MB8611 or Arris S33.
If you don't have one to use for a while, I would get a basic unit right now. WIFI6E will become more common and you will be replacing your router. Just get an AC1900 and wait fir 6E to get all the bugs worked out.Ok thank you - now what about the router Asus ROG maybe ?
AC1900 is a marketing shorthand. It says the router is an AC WIFI dual band wita a combined WIFI speed of 1.9Gb. It can support gigabit wired speeds and 400Mbit throughput on WIFI. the Asus AC1900 or AX68U are in that category.Is AC 1900 the code or the brand or the range ?
The KEY takeaway from our recommendation is "Don't pay a premium today because there is a technology change underway which will REQUIRE a new router purchase." From the Netgear webpage, the RAX10 is the lowest cost option.Wow ya all are the best on the planet. Did not understand a word of it. So, if Is ee a router to connect to the Xfinity approved modem look for a number of 1900 or higher ? I think I am going to do the Nighthawk Modem with the Nighthawk Roter and Mesh piece?
