Hi, I'm new to this forum. We just got a Roku Ultra for our 10 year old Sony HD TV and I got it connected OK, but I'm not super tech savvy.
Next, we're planning to discontinue our cable TV and landline phone services from Xfinity. But, we would like to keep Xfinity's internet service for our pc desktop, laptop and iPad, and their mobile phone service for our iPhone XR phones. We are also planning to buy our own modem/router combo instead of renting one from them.
I described our normal internet usage (for my wife and I) to the Xfinity counter guy, and he gave me a list of approved modems. He also suggested that we could switch our internet speed from Xfinity Blast! Pro (250mb) to Xfinity Performance Select (100mb) - a $25/month savings.
I would appreciate any recommendations on which modem/router (combo/gateway) to buy?
Also, are there any compatibility issues with the Roku Ultra and the main popular modem/routers for sale on Amazon, such as the NETGEAR Nighthawk Cable Modem WiFi Router Combo C7000?
