Modem to use with RBKE962

Hello,

Has anyone got a suggestion on which cable modem to use with the Orbi RBKE962 system?

I use Xfinity and would rather buy my own equipment.

 

Thanks

Hey Furry, thanks.
I should have mentioned it in my original post but I need one that accepts Xfinity voice. I do appreciate your quick response. Thank you!!

Check to see if NGs CM2000 modem is supported by XF.

I use the Netgear CM2050V with my Xfinity service.  This is the modem/gateway that includes the analog voice gateway feature that provides our home with telephone services.  Been using it without any problems since last December.

Ok, the v version will be the one you want then.

 

Be sure you use a CAT6A STP cable between the modem and RBR.

 

Enjoy.

Missed your reply but the cm2050v is a great option too with needing voice.

Thank you for reminding me about the CAT6e cable. I had read about that being the preferred cable earlier.

That's CAT6A STP. There is no CAT6e.
