Don't buy cable modem with built in wireless router. More high tech things in one box, more troubles you will get. I use AT&T DSL. 3 weeks ago, my DSL modem with wireless router couldn't connect to internet. I have to replace them all. Hundred dollar model/router only works 13 months. Now I use my old ADSL modem. It still works. I will switch to Comcast next week, and am going to buy cable modem and wireless router. Not two in one box.
I am planning to setup a Wi-Fi network at home. Is there any performance difference between a Wireless Cable Modem and a separate cable modem and wireless router?
I am currently looking for a Wireless Cable modem because it would be eliminate need of a separate wireless router and in essence avoid the wire-clutter.
The options I am currently looking at right now are:
1) Wireless-G Cable Gateway Cable Modem with Built-In Wireless-G Router
2) Motorola SBG900 SURFboard Wireless 802.11g 54Mbps Cable Modem Gateway (
I have a Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection - network adapter in my laptop and am running Vista Home Premium?
Would it be wise getting a combo or should I go for separate cable modem and wireless router?
