Hi OzzieMike. I apologize that we are unable to advise you which modem to pick. I usually do research online before buying electronics. This allows me to make an informed decision. - Lisa, Cox Support Forums Moderator
Thanks...I completely understand. Unfortunately, I'm not able to find any definitive reviews of one 3.1 modem compared to others. And if I look at Amazon reviews, it seems as if for everyone who got one brand of modem that thought it was junk, others felt the same way about a different brand. (i.e. one reviewer said the Arris 8200 modem had issues and he went with a Netgear modem, and a different reviewer said the exact opposite). So it's really hard to know for sure.
