What is the current advice for a cable modem and router.

I have had good luck with the advice for the Motorola cable modem and NetGear wifi router I got here.

Thanks.

I've become a big fan of the twin sites, "The SweetHome" and "The Wirecutter." I can't say I automatically choose what they select, but I will certainly read their whole article:

http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-cable-modem/

http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-wi-fi-router/

or

http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-cheap-router/

I own an Arris cable modem because I needed something that would support the voice services from Comcast. I've got an older Asus N66 router with some alternate firmware. If I had computers that supported the 802.11ac format, I'd get a newer router than supported that format.

I'm sort of out of the loop on the current stuff. No problems with the bands mentioned.

Thanks everyone.

I have the older SB3120 (I think that is the desigation) recommended here. So the newer SB6141 seems like the ticket.

I do wonder about the "end of life" issue, especially since I have a MUCH older cable modem.

I had the NetGear 3700N (again I think) that was also recommended.

I did replace the router last year, as the older one died. I got another NetGear, not sure which one, but have been happy with it.
