Why don't they make modems with an indicator so a person knows when it needs to be replaced. Issues connecting to the internet could be the fault of the provider, router, modem, or the device that's trying to connect. It's a nightmare trying to troubleshoot where the problem is.

Like you said, it complicated, it will cost a lot more $ to build something that can troubleshoot itself

I think the graphic at the top is incorrect, it says SB1690, I think it should be SB6190.

None of this is relevant unless you tighten your coax F-connector on the wall plate and the back of the modem. If it's even slightly loose you've got ingress. Which means packet loss, slower speeds, modem resets, T3 timeouts, ect... So do yourself a favor and make sure those fittings are adequately tightened. Oh and one more thing. Don't go cheap on the coax cable. Use RG6 tri shield or better. 98% of internet trouble calls to your Cable ISP are caused by these two things.

Not what I would expect from a Best of 2018 review. Rehash of 2017 products with very little new insight. At the least focus on docsis 3.1 in more detail while updating purchase considerations for docsis 3.0. Arris modems while pushed like crazy have out of spec xmit power and can be very troublesome on a perfect gain cable signal through a top tier provider.

What are you talking about? Out of spec US TX? If your Arris modem is out of spec it's not because of the device itself, it's because of crap wiring, crap splitters, crap f-connectors, or because some rocket scientist decided to connect their coaxial cable to a surge protector or UPS. Guess what? Your service drop is already bonded to your main electrical ground. It's NEC. It's mandatory. If you do that it's redundant and pointless. All you are doing is attenuating signal for no reason and causing a ton of other issues with ICFR, SNR, MER, BER, all of which impact your internet surfing/gaming/streaming abilities.

I was thinking of replacing the Comcast supplied cable router/modem. The issues we are having are constant rebooting needed (which most of these seem to take care of) and poor WiFi transmission distance. Which of these had the best WiFi coverage?
