What is the Best/Fastest Cable Modem/Router Combo?

by mikej12 / February 22, 2013 6:25 AM PST

I'm hoping to get advice on what the best/fastest cable modem/router device is? I currently have a motorola surfboard sbg6580. It works good, but it interferes with my direct tv so I can't use it and need to find another....

So, what is the best??? Price doesn't matter. I just want the best one.

Not sure why this or any other would interfere. Is there more to this story?

I have no clue, neither does Directv, but they are the ones that told me I can't use this modem with their service. So is there any other modem/router combo unit that is better?

Can't use is different from interferes.

I have to guess at this point you are dropping the cable internet service so with that out of the way, your new service will determine what modem is required.
