    Here is the link for best buy. copied directly... Taken from slickdeals, that shows a 10% off coupon too. For BB credit card owners, try MAY23CCSAVE10 or JUN23CCSAVE10 code for 10% OFF. YMMV.

    Xfinity - using your own modem/router or theirs

    While I hear what you are saying, I do need a switch of some sort...3 hard wired PCs and a server using two cables (in aggregate). The xbox can go wireless, but it is hardwired as well. I am open to getting rid of the R9000 if that is the bottle neck..thanks for that insight. I guess I just...

    Xfinity - using your own modem/router or theirs

    Sorry for the confusion...I am only using the xfinity modem right now, but own several others to include the Arris S33. My setup is xfinity modem (bridge mode) > Netgear 9000 router (wifi disabled) > DECO M9 plus mesh. My main rig is hardwired directly to the Netgear router and where i am...

    Xfinity - using your own modem/router or theirs

    I cannot argue with your statement, but honestly you have no idea what my needs are from this post. However I agree that these speeds are not needed by most and rationally, maybe not even for myself. For reference, I host a server on my home network that I feel warranted this level of service...

    Xfinity - using your own modem/router or theirs

    My xfinity modem shows as a TECHNICOLOR CGM4331COM. Is this an XB7? I mean its white. I can get like 800 from their speed test via hard wire, but anything wifi is like 500 via netgear mesh...nothing near the 1200 my contract has. mostly get 500-600 wired as well...anything over 800 is rare. I...

    When will Video Card prices come down lower?

    I hear ya, but like you I am watching discords and seen plenty of cards drop that I could have gotten at reasonable pricing. I think the bundles are garbage unless you are needing those things. Just last week there was a Best buy drop of almost all cards and PS5s. I got what I needed like...

    Xfinity - using your own modem/router or theirs

    I am running the xfinity modem, a R9000 router and a DECO M9 plus mesh. As mentioned, I would have the Arris as the modem and feel like it was a solid setup. The xfinity modem is "x" factor. I have to follow up with xfinity to see if there is indeed noise or whatever.

    Yeah...I think I am putting my equipment in the mix. Thanks for reply!

    Xfinity - using your own modem/router or theirs

    I am thinking that the Arris S33 will outperform theirs, but that is my opinion. You state that you "went back and forth before getting rid of theirs"...meaning you are using yours right now? Can you share model number/manufacturer? I am still going to call them, but I feel better with my own...

    Xfinity - using your own modem/router or theirs

    Once I changed the modem to passthrough, I really only see a message that says just that. I can run speeds tests as I am sure you know via wifi devices, hard wired devices and using multiple sites to try and all are consistent and have yet to get ANYTHING over 900. Since xfinity has a plan for...
