  • New in 2017, this ultra fast DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem also includes 32x8 DOCSIS 3.0. Your best choice for the highest speeds with any cable modem service, even the fastest. Downloads up to 46 times faster than DOCSIS 2.0. Includes bonded Gigabit Ethernet ports for speeds over 1 Gigabit per second when supported by your service and router. A Broadcom modem chipset provides security from Denial of Service attacks.
  • Requires cable Internet service. Certified by Comcast XFINITY for all residential speeds, including Extreme 300 and Gig-speed, and Comcast Business for all cable modem speeds including Deluxe 250. Certified by Cox Communications for all speeds, including Gigablast. Typically saves $120 per year in cable modem rental fees. Actual savings depends on your cable service provider. (MB8600 does NOT include a router and does NOT have a phone jack for Telephone Service option from Cable Companies.)
  • One open and 3 masked 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet ports allow connection of any SINGLE device with an Ethernet port including a router, Windows/Mac computer, HDTV, game station. The multiple Ethernet ports are NOT for connecting multiple devices; they allow connection to a router that can bond more than one Ethernet port to achieve speeds over 1Gbps when supported by your cable service. Supports IPv4/IPv6. Includes Broadcom full-band capture digital tuner to enhance speed and save energy.
  • Active Queue Management (AQM) significantly reduces Internet latency, much better than popular 32x8 3.0-only cable modems. AQM results in faster page loads for all Web traffic and greatly enhances interactive applications like online gaming and video conferencing.
  • Attractive, compact design minimizes shelf space, improves cooling, and extends product life while looking great in any home or office. A two-year warranty plus rugged lightning and power surge circuits protect your investment. Includes phone and web support by friendly, professional USA-based technical support specialists.

Comccast says I need to change my modem. Which one is best for my two desktop computers? I don't want to have to keep replacing my modem, and I am concerned about what I have read concerning glitches, lack of manufacturer support, and heating up. I would rather pay more for quality and longevity.
Thank you

I purchased the Motorola MB8600 and was wondering if I made a good choice.
Currently I am running a Motorola SB6190 cable modem and a Asus RT-N66W/U and a Asus RT-AC66U.
I was using the RT-AC66U then when I tried to Upgrade it I bricked the router.
I managed to un-brick and am still using thhe RT-N66W/U
My goal is to have the perfect network running Tomato shibby with the absolute best router and modem were I don't have to keep buying new devices every 6 months.
I'm looking towered the future and plan on getting the 1GB-100GB internet connection and the fastest most reliable high speed wireless router.
What do you guy's think is a good combination?

I have 1 gigabit supported internet bundled with my rent, and I need to buy my own router and modem that support and take advantage of the 1 gigabit network. What router and modem or combo router/ modem would you recommend? I'm looking at the Motorola MG7540 and MG7550. Will either of these suffice?
