I have long been interested in buying a new modem so I don't have to deal with my ISPs monthly modem charge. I found one for a great cyber monday deal but didn't put a lot of thought into it. It is a good modem but I don't have a router as the modem I am renting is one that is a modem/router combo. Would any of these suffice: https://www.amazon.com/slp/best-rout...ot87g3r2yqn8jf Thanks

Before you run out and buy one, see if threatening Comcast with cancellation doesn't get them to drop the monthly fee.

The stability of an OS is in direct proportion to the stability of the user.

I would advise against threats. And avoid calling comcast until you get your modem.

Pretty much any router and modem combo will work. But depending on how many people are going to connect to the wireless router matters. Either wired or wireless. If you are the only person connecting to the modem and you do not have any wireless devices that you use currently then all you need is a modem and no router. If you have any cell phones or tablets connecting to them, but you are the only person using the wifi then any router will work. But if you have multiple people using the wifi, consider getting a router that has a qos setup. Or better known as "media prioritization" as one of its features.
