NETGEAR Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Tri-Band Wi-Fi Router

A friend said they are ahipping this as a Christmas present (with receipt for trade-in if needed) to us...

 

(1) Will it work with Comcast?

(2) Is there a better unit? (better = speed, security)

 

Thanks in advance for any insight you may offer.

  1.  Yes
  2. That router is #13 in SmallNetBuilder 's list of best routers. You could probably do better, but you're not getting a bad one either.

What modem do you currently have? Note that the router by itself will not work unless you have a modem also.

Hi,

 

Were thinking if getting a Netgear Gigibit  Cable Modem (32x8) DOCSIS 3.1.

 

I'm using a Comcast router. I see the number one router on the list you sent, so we’re trading in for that - R7800 Nighthawk X4S Smart WiFi Gaming Router.
