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modem/routers that were on the list, or they are only available as refurbished [which suggests to me that the list is out of date].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?
