Anyone purchased their own equipment to avoid my new $14 amonth rental. Found several but looking for best pricing on one that actually works. I need the phone connection because Xfinity wants to increase my bill everytime I try to cancel my landline.
Thanks for any advice.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Here is their official "Approved Devices" list;
I would get it from the Approved List. Also beware of buying used devices because
their MAC address might already by registrated and might give you problems.
As for the one I bought, I went ahead and bought at plain Zoom cable modem without the router built in because I have a unique network setup. But I would start with the Approved List if I wasnt so picky .
They need an eMTA capable device whether they use the phone service or not because a regularly scheduled Comcast audit will show that they are not using one.
Yes. What speed tier are you subscribed to ? Do you want a straight cable modem with phone capability, or a combo modem / router / phone capable gateway device ?
Not sure what I want or need as I never replaced one. What I have now is the Arris Router/Modem combo with telephone connection. Its an Arris TG1682G. Seems to work fine but cost $14 a month. Any suggestion would be appreciated.
I would recommend this one;
