I found Arris Surfboard SBG7580AC to be the best one available in the price range on Amazon. I have been using PureVPN on mine and if you are going to upgrade then I would recommend you to look into it. They have recently launched network level security using IDS/IPS technology along with other new features which are useful for protection.

My System

Verify your options with the Comcast approved modems list. All brands/models are typically NOT supported.
