What Are the Latest Modems & Routers?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I feel like when searching around, I cannot find modems and routers made in more recent years. I'm getting theĀ 50mbps internet, and want to get a new modem and router, that will last me a long time. I'm giving my current ones to my GF for hew new apartment. But for at my place, I want the fastest possible solution, and largest range capabilities. I online game, stream tons of media(at the same time). So far, I think the router that makes the most sense for me, is the Linksys E4200. Is it, though? And what about the router? I'm not too worried about the price, a few hundred is fine.

Any DOCSIS 3.0 modem will support channel bonding so the 50mbs shouldn't be that hard. I would stick to a Motorola or a Cisco that the companies use. I haven't seen any issues with any of them. Please someone correct me if I am wrong. Thanks

As far as the router goes remember that cisco no longer owns linksys. It is in the hands of belkin which IMO(and only in my Opinion) has not been up to snuff to keep their line of routers in the higher quality that cisco was keeping them. I could be wrong but every belkin I have ever used was not as robust in the throughput of WAN to LAN. However look at this from CNET (if you haven't already) to make a more educated descision. thumb.gif

That's the exact one I was mentioning, it's under the Cisco name. I have a Cisco now, and it's fine, but it's not meant for a large house, or speedy. I think it's the E2000. I guess I'm solid on buying that router(E4200), it's a matter of the modem now.
