Compatible routers


Compatible routers

I purchased a Nighthawk CM1100 Modem.  I am trying to find a list of compatible routers (the product spec sheet only has the AX8 8 Stream wifi router listed.  Are there other wireless routers that are compatible?  I didn't want to spend the amount listed for for AX 8.  Thank you

Re: Compatible routers

Any decent router should work just fine. They all should connect with the modem just fine. No special magic required. Very hard for a vendor to keep a list up to date.

Absolutely. Find one that fits in with your budget and needs.


There is no reason why you should stick with Netgear – some people would say that you should avoid it – but some of us find that it is easier to stick with one brand because then you can get used to how they work.


Start here:

Plug in your needs, and then see what the reviews and comment here tell you.


If you want a personal recommendation, the R7800 has a lot of fans. Reliable and basic. A bit old, but in this area newest is not always greatest.
