New router

I want a new router I have an Arris whatever, and I am tired of the problems with it. I bought an orbi but it doesn’t have a cable jack on it. So what is one that does and that I can not have so many problems with?

I am using the XB6 in Bridge Mode with my Orbi and two satellites.  I have an extensive ethernet setup and I use an unmangaged 8-port switch connected to one port on the XB6.

 

 I even have a second 8-port switch in my den connected to one port in the XB6 switch.

O'k I'll ask questions rather than just state what I have.... 

 

A cable modem needs to be used with an Orbi. What is the exact model number of the Arris "whatever" ? Do you also have their phone service ? Do you want to rent from them or own your own ? What speed tier do you have ?
