Looking for Cable Modem / Router combo

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a Cable Modem / Router combo all in 1 unit.
I have found many ADSL units, but nothing for Cable.
it also needs to handle over 70 Mbps download speeds.
Thank you.

I just got the Asus RT-N66U and it is great.

I have absolutely great connection. At the bare minimum get the surfboard, that is the best cable modem to get right now.

The all in one surfboard blows. My sister had one and it constantly had connection issues with wifi. You are going to get way better performance for a stand alone router then an integrated unit. Plus that asus router I linked has amazing software that lets you do lots of stuff.

Yeah.. i guess i'll have to do it the normal way...
i guess i can deal with 1 more unit cluttering up my desk...
this Linksys router looks good, and has a high rating.. plus i have used it before with no issues..and it's not going to break me.

Damn 2nd PC... glad i got my new build about finished, just can't let go of the old one..
maybe use it for web surfing, and all the other stuff.. use it for downloading and testing for viruses before installing it on the new machine.
oh.. and no need for wifi, i do not have anything wireless.

The only thing is the WRT54GL struggles with any connections with 25mbps with Firewall and NAT running.
so you should probably get something with a bit more CPU and RAM horsepower if you want to get a little more performance.

I use to have a wrt54g and my internet would only push about 37mb. You won't get your full speed if you use that router.

You need a newer router that has more cpu power.

I have the asus I originally linked and i get the same ping times as when I am plugged directly into the modem.

Thanks for the heads up, for the 1st week i'll be testing and updating everything, learning Win 8.1
deciding what programs i want to transfer over, and if they are compatible. i got something to browse with for the moment.
i do like the speed i get going directly into the modem.. too bad they don't make an A / B box like i have for my instruments..lol

Well If you have a good router, you shouldn't see a decrease in speed when connecting through it.

With my RT-N66R I see no decrease in speed compared to connecting directly to the modem. So once you get the line issue taken care of you should be good.

I can normally download about 6.8MB/s on my connection.
