OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
 
My ISP is Cox. I currently rent my cable modem, UBEE DDW365, from Cox. I connect my laptop to the cable modem via WiFi rather than wired Ethernet. 
 
I want to purchase a modem to save on rental fees. Cox has a long list of modems that are certified to work with the Cox network. I could go through this list one item at a time looking at user reviews. But I thought I would first canvass readers of this forum for a recommendation for a reliable cable modem with WiFi. The modem should be DOCSIS 3.0 or 3.1.
 
Thank you.

make sure you look at how many downstreams & upstreams your modem support.   your cable company will rent you an 8 down x 4up (crappy modem).

i just purchased a 16 down x 8 up and I gotten rid of lag issue with gaming and streaming video at the same time. this is great for 100mb to 300mb connections.

meaning my son can be gaming on his xbox one and my wife on facebook and me streaming video on my android tv box and have no issues whatsoever.

 

now if your system is faster then 300mb I would recommed a 32 down x 16up modem.

 

you'll have to research which modems are supported on your cable network.  but you should be able to find what you need googling it.

 

all modems now are DOCSIS 3.X.    if you want performance then follow my recommendation.
