There are so many routers, how do I choose?
I currently found out that WOW Internet is charging me $14/mth to "rent" their modem. The current speed is up to 500 mbps, however, we are upgrading to 1000 mpbs next month when we move. I would like to find a router that will work for us and will handle the speed and work with WOW. I have no idea what I am doing and finding DOCSIS 3.1 vs 24 x 8 info, but I have no idea what it means, nor do I really need a tutorial of what does what. I just need a recommendation for a modem that is under $150. It doesn't need to have the built-in router as we have the home wifi Eero for that. It does need to have 4 ethernet ports so I can hard line connect for work.
Greetings. Per WOW's website, they recommend a DOCSIS 3.1 modem for their services if you do not rent from them. It doesn't appear they recommend any other specs besides that, here are the DOCSIS 3.1 modems we sell: https://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.aspx?Ntt=docsis+3.1+modem&Ntk=all&sortby=match&N=4294966729+4294822454+4294820864&myStore=true
