Re: The best router for comcast internet

There is no 'list' of routers that work 'best' with Comcast...There are so many factors involved in deciding which router is best for you, that the general advice given here is stick with either Linksys/Cisco, Netgear or DLink, then review the site listed in this post to help you make your decision.

 

It has to be up to you eventually, which router you buy. If we recommend something to someone, and it doesn't fit their needs, we are going to have to answer for why we recommended a specific device...so we don't. We point you in the right direction, and let you educate yourself.

Re: The best router for comcast internet

Your response seems very vague,as ive tried two diff. models of linsys routers only to be told by comcast that they do not support it. so if you wont tell us what is best,tell us what wont work so were not throwing money away!

They don't support customer owned routers in the sense that they won't advise about any issues you may have with one and they wont fix it. It's not "don't support" in the sense that you can't use one. Any router will work.

Re: The best router for comcast internet

Since some ignored the other response, I am repeating it!

"(Information herein is deemed accurate as of 2/7/2011)

 

This question is asked almost on a weekly basis on this board, so here is the answer preferred by 99% of experts....)

 

I am only responding because 99% seems like an unlikely number!!!

Macintosh users (about 10% of new purchasers) might prefer to look at the Apple router as it provides a simple connection procedure as well as a nice automated computer back-up procedure.

It's not really "free". They still own it and it must be returned if you ever cancel their service. It's "free" in the sense that you don't have to pay a monthly rental fee. They will ship one to you for a shipping fee of $9.95. You also must be renting your cable modem from them in order to qualify. Details here;

Sorry. Should have said " no additional cost".
