Netgear WNDR4500-100PAS N900 Dual Band Gigabit WiFi Router

I'm getting ready to purchase a new Netgear Modem and I want to make sure I can keep using my existing router.  I want to make sure it's compatible and obviously up to date enough that it will work with the new modem.  I'm a Comcast member and was informed I had to switch my modem for higher speeds.  I'm looking to purchase the Netgear CM110 Modem.  Any thoughts, feedback, etc... if I'm ok with keeping my existing Netgear WNDR4500-100PAS N900 Dual Band Gigabit WiFi Router?  This is for my home and the router has been working great so far.  Comcast has upgraded my speeds to be up to 300 mpbs.  We run a couple of laptops, Xbox, phones, etc.. nothing real high tech.

 

Thank You!

> [...] compatible [...]

 

   Broadly speaking, practically any modem is compatible with
practically any router.  "compatible" and "well-matched" are spelled
differently for a reason.

   Not a very detailed description of that device.

   Up from what?

 

   You might need to scout around for evidence or opinions as to whether
a WNDR4500 can keep up with a speed like 300Mb/s.  (Note: "m" = milli =
1/1000.  "M" = "mega" = 1000000.)

   Nothing very well described, either.  Whether a WNDR4500 will be a
bottleneck with your new service (more than it might already be) would
depend on where your current bottleneck(s) are.  Tough to determine
without any useful information.  If your (unspecified) "laptops", for
example, are old and slow, then the fastest router in the world might
make no discernable difference in your network performance.
