Re: modem

I have a Nighthawk 7000 which is AC1900 and I think it's great. But it should be noted it is about a three year old model now.

I would buy a newer and higher end version.

FYI the Nighthawk is a router not a modem. You would still need to buy a modem or rent one from Comcast.

If your internet is slow, you could always have Comcast sent a tech out to investigate. It could easily be a wiring or connection issue.

That router doesn't support phone service. You would need to use a combo cable modem / eMTA with it or put the 8305 in to bridge mode and use a router with it. It will still support the phone service in bridge mode.
