compatable routers

Any recommendations for aftermarket router that is compatable with comcast?

Can I purchase the router I have from Comcast?

Trying to eliminate rental fee ($14. per mo)

I have an Arris SurfBoard modem and a Linksys Wireless router with four ethernet ports.  The Xfinity website has list of compatible devices.  See https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/list-of-approved-cable-modems

For clarity, are you talking about a plain vanilla / straight cable modem, a stand-alone router, or a combination cable modem (with a built-in router) gateway device ?

No. They don't sell their devices at retail.
