CBK753 vs RBK753 and modem

I have been having a problem with my EERO B010001 mesh router.  It shuts down unexpectedly.  Since it is in a remote location, my internet connectivity is down until I can visit and physically reset the EERO.  So, I need new equipment.  I am afraid that the same thing will happen if I buy separate modem and router devices.  Is this an EERO deficiency or should I only consider combo devices such as the cbk orbi?

Something to contact EERO mfr for help and support information regarding there product. 

Some ISPs don't support or do FW updates on user owned modems so having a separate modem and router mesh system maybe best. Otherwise check with the ISP first to see what is supported on there system first. 


The CBK is a built in modem and router. The RBK is  router system only.
