Wanting to buy my own modem and router but not sure what to buy. Would love some suggestions. Wanting to stay on the cheaper side but also i don't want to sacrifice quality just to save money. I have the home phone too, but i dont care if it is hooked up. I haven't hooked it up once in the two years i have had TWC. We have the extreme package and mainly just browse the internet and stream videos. Thanks!
Solved! Go to Solution.
For most market areas you can't go wrong on your choice with a modem that has 16 downstream channels and 4 upstream channels.
For WiFi routers... which are technically a combination of a wireless access point, an ethernet switch, and a NAT routing software controller.... what you really want is a 802.11ac capable WiFi router. There's a huge number of brands and models out there, but at the end of the day look for 802.11ac with external dipole antennas (has antennas you can physically see, not just a strip of metal on the circuit board inside the plastic housing).
