      I've been having some internet issues, contacted COX and they informed me my old 2007 modem isn't supported, I was informed of "their list" of modems to buy as seen below. This is for general home use internet, to a desk top, I also have a NETGEAR Wifi unit in ~tandom/in line sending out a signal through out the house so I have Wifi for a laptop or phone.

      I get internet to my existing modem via a coaxial cable from the wall, from that modem to the Netgear Wifi unit via ~10 pin flat telephone cord, from the Netgear Wifi unit to the desk top via ~10 pin flat telephone cord. I have no issues maintaining this set up, everything is hidden away and don't really care to "Add" a wifi receiver to the desktop as not bothered by running a cord to it. If the new recommend "Modem with WIFI" unit does away with my Netgear wifi unit as killing two birds with one stone then that maybe an option.

      A) I know nothing of computers really so looking at this list not sure what's what or even if it matters
      B) So if you can pick a model out "if it matters", as not sure if there's a "to go to" unit or pros vs cons.

      Thanks

      Go with one of the ARRIS/Surfboard models. I have the SB6183 which was the fastest one available last year and reasonably priced for Premier service with Cox.
