You need to buy a cable modem that is supported by your ISP.

I have Comcast, and they have a list of such modems.

Agreed that you should make sure the modem you get is supported by your cable internet company.

We have a Motorola Surfboard 6120, and absolutely love it. We had a different Motorola Surfboard that we replaced, but it also worked fine for us. It did not die, we just wanted to take advantage of the faster DOCSIS 3 speeds.

The cable company will sell you one that works int heir system, but it is generally cheaper to buy yourself and then call the cable company to active it... We got ours on
