In my experience, the router + modem combos are horrible as a router. Still work fine as modem though, but just get a 6190 for $85 from amazon or walmart right now as there's no sale. Currently in market too since a family member's just crapped out

Do not buy this modem. The Intel chipset inside is defective, and is most likely the reason it's on sale.

I just bought this modem via Google Express ($20 discount for first order with HOLIDAY19 code and free shipping). I wanted to avoid paying modem rental fee from Cox. Hopefully it'll work well for me.

I know Best Buy didn't advertise it this way, but can OP please add in the title or description the modem is also known as an SBG10? This ties into javaraiders post about the modem's defective chipset. On Appovedmodemslist, I didn't initially find "AC1600", but I did find "SBG10".

Thanks!
