Xfinity SMCD3GNV vs Router

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I just upgraded some of my services with Comcast and it was cheaper to bundle them together and get the Voice. So they just sent me this SMCD3GNV Gateway. I currently have a Netgear WNDR3700v3 running DDWRT. I don't use most of the advanced features in DDWRT, so not having that isn't a huge deal breaker. However, I was wondering what everyone thought of this gateway? Is it better or equal to using my current WNDR3700? I do stream to wired/wireless devices (WDTV Live, PS3), so that would need to work well. Thanks for any input!

WNDR3700 is definitely the better router. Voice is VOIP right? Your going to need to configure your SMCD3GNV Gateway into bridge mode, keep the voip settings to be able to use your router.
