Best Modem for AC2600 Router
I just bought a Nighthawk AC2600 Router Model R7450 and I would like to know what Modem to buy. What should I look for in a modem to get the best of this Router?
Re: Best Modem for AC2600 Router
The router doesn't care what modem you use, or even who made it. You just need to get something that works for your internet service. As you already have a router, your best bet is to get a "modem only" device rather than a modem router.
If you are lucky, your ISP will have a list of modems known to work on its network, but some ISPs will try to sell you something they approve. Worse, they ,may want to rent you something to keep the money rolling in.
Netgear doesn't make many modem only boxes.
Pretty well the only option for a DSL service is the DM200. Mine works fine with an R7800 router.
If you have cable internet, there is a bigger choice:
Look outside Netgear, and the choice will be bigger.
Your message says R7450 but the footer says R7000P. (My guess is that the R7450 hasn't made it into the forum's database yet.) It probably doesn't make much difference, but it helps to know the right model number.
