Other than Cox directly, does anyone know where I can purchase the Netgear CG4500BD gateway?

    As far as I'm aware those devices aren't sold retail.  The gateway has so far been provided exclusively by ISP's and because of such Netgear provides no support for them.

    I usually stay FAR away from gateways, but this one looks interesting.

    I saw that article too.

    Curious, if you stay away from gateways, what modem and router combination would you recommend?

    Thats just my personal preference, but I am kind of a perfectionist when it comes to my setup. Motorola SB6141 and RT-N66U. Some other things to consider is cooling and good power. I use a Zalman laptop cooler and a Cyberpower UPS. If you don't need battery backup then I suggest a Tripp Lite Isobar.

    Also check out Smallnetbuilder since when it comes to your wireless router, a lot of it comes down to your price range. No point buying a 150$ router if your network is mostly Wifi-G. You would be much better paying 40-60$ for a router and putting some 3rd party firmware on it.
