I wish to replace the Comcast cable modem router with my own by purchasing as Comcast does not sell their used equipment.  Does Comcast recommend or require that only certain a modem router can be used?  I will need a cable internet modem router with WiFi and a phone jack/port.

Re: Info on Comcast approved modems/routers

Thank you.  I suspect Comcast only includes expensive units to discourage customers from purchasing their own and keep renting.
