Prices went up and I am now paying $14.95 per month to my cable provider for my combo modem router and an additional fee for the WiFi service for the modem [??....…].  About a year ago, when I first agreed to the rent the equipment, the price was $5/month.  Both my computer and my telephone [VOIP] are connected to the modem/router.  My printer and TV are connected via WiFi.  
I shopped online using the list of my provider’s approved modem/routers obtained from their website.  Either I couldn’t find the modem/routers that were on the list, or they are only available as refurbished [which suggests to me that the list is out of date].  The more I read about router/modem combos, the more confused I become about what search terms to use to find a modem/router with WiFi that supports VOIP.  My cable service is slightly faster than 50 MBPS.  Other info: OS Windows 7, SP1, 64-bit.  Does anyone have any recommendations, or can you tell me what to look for?
Thank you.

This depends on which VoIP provider company you're in contact with. For VoIP use, you need router that supports H.232 and SIP protocol.
