Dual band high speed cable modem

I am in the market for an Xfinity compatible dual band high speed cable modem.  Which cable modem would you recommend?

Re: Dual band high speed cable modem

There are no "dual band" straight cable modems. Do you mean a ROUTER ?

Re: Dual band high speed cable modem

I currently am renting a DSL modem [Jbee DOM 3513] from Comcast today.  Can I replace that with a dual band router?

FWIW, that is a cable (not a DSL) modem. You can use any "dual band" router of your chioce with it but you still need it. You need both devices (modem and router) unless you use one of those combo modem/router gateway devices (I don't recommend those).
