FWIW, the Arris SB6190, and the Arris TG3482 are problematic due to the well known Puma 6 chipset fiasco.

Arris/Motorola modems have been pretty reliable when it comes to cable for years now.  

 

It could be a signal issue though on the line either internal or outside of the residence.  Changing modems won't do much for that other than chatting for a service call to clean up the signals.  As to your internal network usually just getting a 8 port gig switch is enough to keep things moving around the house without many drops and frees up some ports on your router.

xFI cable modems/routers questions (unstable internet with Cisco 3941T)

Since you seemed to have details on the 3 possible routers I could try and online chat is telling me I could cross ship others to try or have a tech come over, I was hoping you could help me.

I just switched from VZ 100/100 service and have my wifi all setup in the house... I switched to Xfinity 200/10 (was told it was 200/20 by sales rep Smiley Sad ) and have had latency issues and dropouts with the Cisco 3941T being used just simply with a wire to my existing wifi router.  I tried bridged mode and that seemed to work for a bit but then seemed to break randomly another ethernet device I plugged in; I read that one can only use one port but it wasn't clear if it had to be a specific one or any single port...

I'm just wondering if either Arris 1682G or Arris TG3482G might have better stability (mostly concerned about wired responsiveness) or bridge modes...
