Price matched at Best Buy but unfortunately couldn't use the 15% off coupon you get when you recycle an old modem or router.

Quote from skwishbot :
The router is going to have way more affect on that stuff than the modem...
I've been thinking the same and have had a couple of browser tabs open about bufferbloat but haven't had time to really figure out if that's what I should be focusing on or something else.

Router is an Orbi mesh system (RBK20W) btw.

Also, as mentioned upthread, I'm a fairly light user in terms of actual bandwidth demand (generally no more than 1 device streaming 4K video at a time), though I do have 56 devices connected to my WiFi currently. It's mostly TP Link smart switches/outlets, Alexa devices, and Ring cameras.

Quote from Ananke :
I have deco m9 plus from Costco (like yours), and it is connected to the modem. The Deco is a router+WiFi access points, and yes it works - that is the normal intended configuration.

If you login in your Deco from the web interface, you can see CPU and Memory utilization. It usually stays low, and handles heavy traffic well. The m9 is pretty robust router.
I was thinking about EdgeRouterPro+APs, or some other dedicated fast wired routers, but the Deco M9 is quite capable. Unless you want very granulated and advanced router functionality - don't bother with anything else.
Thanks for the reply you saved me money by not getting another router

Quote from mser4fun :
I've noticed that every couple of years when Comcast rolls out a speed increase in my area, my modem becomes glitchy and disconnects quite often. The list of compatible modems on Comcast's website indicates that my modem is compatible. With many of us working or going to school from home, stable connection is a must. You don't want to disconnect when you really need to be connected.

I know software updates for those modems is controlled by Comcast but was wondering, what's the TRUE longevity of these modems so they are glitch free?
you have to put in etherent efficient mode if not it over heats.arris put low lantcy download and link boning in the firmware.

FYI If you have Comcast voice on your package they may give a problem activating it because it doesn't have the telephone ports.
I only have the voice for a tv bundle discount

Quote from rbslickdeal :
Without being an expert. I'd say yes. This is future proof and cheap compared to original price. This is the price you'd expect for older tech. But this is future proof.
I would say yes and no.... If you can only get gig speed and/or don't have a 2.5gbps port on your router that will do WAN... probably a waste and I'd wait for Docis 4.0 modems to rollout, you provider to go to 2 or 2.5gbps, or when you upgrade your router. I have a router with a 2.5gbps port and the CM1100... My guess is I would go from my max of 875/900gbps to 1 to 1.1gbps with this... But that is dependent on your provider and area.

Make sure this is supported by your provider.... Looks like it is not on the list for Mediacom.

Might upgrade to this from my older Netgear CM600. For some reason (unlikely the hardware) my service been spotty. I blame the ISP, but this one is discounted so the time might have come to check out Arris. It has been over a decade since I used a really old Arris/Motorola modem.

question to those that already have experience using a modem with 2 ports: does your ISP assign two different IP addresses?

They told me they upgrading towers in my area and that's why I'm having the issue
They don't run wireless network infrastructure so I'm curious about the use of "tower". Unless they're using it as shorthand for "optical fiber node" and "RF amplifiers"

Has anyone had any overheating issues. If you actually sort the reviews by most recent there are a lot of people saying they are having issues with it.

I was in store looking at the Orbi systems that were on clearance and noticed these in stock. I bought 2 and only needed one. (They had 6) Tried to return and they said it was not an item they stock and questioned that I bought it from there. With a receipt.
Funny, it's always an adventure at WallyWorld.

I'm interested in getting the second one from you if you still have it. PM me, thanks🤝
