Hello All,
My modem is a netgear wireless cable modem
Model Number: CG814WG V3
i have no knowledge in this department so this is my question

Are there any wireless cable modems that are like this but load internet pages faster and are more for gaming and have a stronger wi-fi strength?

Thank you for reading

Was this modem provided by your ISP? I know I was able to replace/upgrade my modem for free when it was having issues.
I see a lot of DSL modem/router, but I couldn't find a good cable modem/router (Usually they are separate, or at least all the ones I've setup have been)

Also, the modem may not be the reason pages are loading slow. What type of connection do you have? If it's slow, it's slow. If you're far from the router, you'll have a weak signal and get slow data transfer.

I use a Netgear WNDR3700 and it's been great speed and strength, but it's only a router, not a modem.

Hello Jonowxeno,

Yup its from my ISP but maybe ive got it wrong between a modem and a router im pretty sure a modem is like a motorola one where u just have one connection at the back but ive got a router lol many connections out the back but im on the CABLE/LAN connection if that helps ill seach up on ur router see how it looks compared to mine. MY ISP provide these as the newest thing out now this the the model number
Cisco EPC3925
they say this about the modem/router

DOCSIS 3.0 uses 'channel-bonding' to provide ultra-fast broadband speeds. This means that the cable modem effectively acts as multiple cable modems operating in parallel, bonding the data streams together to deliver much faster speeds then possible with a single cable modem.

what is DOCSIS 3.0?

DOCSIS 3.0 is the new standard for High Speed Cable Internet. Using a Coaxial Cable to connect to a modem. Does your ISP use a Coaxial connection to your modem or is it Ethernet?
If its Coaxial, and your router is only 2.0, it won't use the 3.0 speeds and that probably is the reason why your speeds are slow.
If you still have a 2.0 modem, upgrade it to the newest one you can get that has 3.0 support

btw the modem you listed, the Cisco I see online is $300 http://www.wwbroadcast.com/Cisco_Mod...eda_44771w.htm

See if your ISP will allow you to upgrade it to that for a small fee or for free
