      Answer

      This modem is NOT wireless. In researching the best setup, most people seem to agree that you are better off with a separate modem and wireless router than a combo unit, so that's what I did. We have the internet connected via coax to this modem, then connected the modem to a Netgear wireless router with a wired connection. All my devices are then connected wirelessly that way, and we're getting great service.

        I just replaced the Comcast equipment with this and it works great with no issues and setup is just a few minutes and 90% of that is getting the modem registered with Comcast.

          That's precisely what this modem is for. I recommend replacing your TWC modem with this one...and saving their $8 per month charge (as I did).

            This is not a gateway, it's a cable modem. you will need a wireless router to connect to this modem. The wireless connections would depend on how many the wireless gateway can handle.

              Answer

              After connecting my router to coax cable and to my laptop with an Ethernet cable, I was able to simply open a browser and was redirected to a Comcast page that automatically set it up/registered it. You just need a Comcast login or account information. I was up and running within 15 minutes and never had to call.

                Yes this is probably one of your better options for Comcast xfinity, you can return their modem and start saving $10 a month and in 10 months your modem is paid for.

                    Answer

                    Yes you do need a router for this modem. The best one I would recommend is the NETGEAR N900 Dual band wireless router with 5 port gigabit Ethernet Switch. It's super great with multiple devices connected to it. I have an Apple TV 2 computers, 2 tablets, ps4 and 4 phones connected to the router at all times and my internet speed is never affected not is the strength of the Internet decreased. This modem along with the router named above are a great pair. Both help increase the signal strength of your internet.
