      Answer

      Yes, you are correct. You may also want to check with your service provider if this modem will work with them. I ended up purchasing this exact modem/router and skipped having to lease one by Comcast. Once you get everything hooked up, you will need to call your service provider and they will add your modem onto the network and get it working for you.

        Answer

        Yes it works with Cox Communications... It States this on the front of the Box... Just Call Cox and give them the Numbers they ask.. don't plug it in until you do this... they will tell you to turn on your modem and you are done... basically.. Lastly... tell Cox you want to "Self Install" your Service.. then they only charge you $20 bucks... instead of $50...

            Modems and Wireless routers   (5 Answers)

            We have Dish network for our TV's and Comcast for internet. We also have 6 cell phones, 3 Laptops, 2 kindle fires, plus friends and family that come over. With that being said, we would love to stop "renting" the modem from Comcast and get our own. We are wondering which one is the best for our situation. Interested in a combination Modem / Wireless / Dual band if possible. Thanks

              Answer

              I have comcast for internet and basic tv. It works fine. After about 6 months of use without any problems, there were a couple of time when the wifi signal would drop out. Also, the speed dropped really slow. Once I turned off the modem and turned it back, everything went back to normal. Have had to do this three times.

                  Via ethernet cable, you will have a hard wired and much faster connection. It doesn't need to be connected to a PC to pick up the wireless signal however.

                      Answer

                      The Netgear N300 was recommended to me by Bright House and I also have one of these being used with Comcast. This unit worked without any problems in the initial installation by the technician. I connected my PC wirelessly manually and automatically with my Roku devise. Just pushed the buttons and in less than a minute got connected and working.
