Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Excellent router. works great
If you're paying your cable company for high-speed internet, you owe it to yourself to run it through a modem that can handle the job. Rental modems put a monthly charge on your bill, and they're often a couple of generations out of date. The NETGEAR CM1000 can handle speeds up to 1 Gbps, plenty fast enough to keep you streaming 4K Ultra HD video with no hiccups.
For fast, reliable Wi-Fi®, consider picking up a wireless router to go along with your new modem. Your home's wireless network is only as speedy as its slowest part!

Excellent router. works great
Fantastic! High speed and future proof!
Pros: Compact, awesome speed, 3.1 future proof.
Easy to set up with my network provider. Fast and you don't have to worry about upgrading down the road. So in the long run you save money.
Easy setup. No hassle getting Comcast to authorize the modem.
Pros: Easy setup
I was having constant issues with an older Motorola SB6141 so decided to upgrade. As of this review this is the best cable modem available that is compatible with Comcast, and I can confirm it works just fine. I had no issues with setup and it's still working perfectly.
Pros: Easy install, works perfectly with Comcast, consistent performance
after months of issues with the modem from my ISP... Even though it says on the box it doesn't work with Time Warner or Spectrum it worked perfectly and has greatly increased the speed and reliability of my internet connection. It's been weeks and I have had zero issues and even the setup with my ISP was a breeze.
I purchased for Comcast. Did not work. After talking to trouble shoot with Comcast and Crutchfield, I had to return. Return process was great though.
Cons: Did not sync with Comcast after re-provision

3.1 dos [ Brian May 30, 2018 ]
Because I figured it would be better than the one Cox was going to make me buy for the same price. [ Billy Mar 12, 2018 ]
My old unit was dying. [ William Jun 15, 2017 ]
Yes you can definitely use a single device connection or you can buy a splitter used that way and later on you can buy a wireless router. I'm using the orbi wireless router with this modem and works flawlessly [ Edgar Jun 07, 2018 ]
I see no reason why this setup wouldn't work. [ Michael Jun 06, 2018 ]
Yes, it has one LAN line output, so you can plug in just one device if you wanted to. [ Jin Jun 06, 2018 ]
Netgear confirms compatibility with most major US cable ISPs ("Comcast XFINITY, Time Warner Cable, Cox, Charter, Cablevision & more") but does not specifically list "Optimum" so, you'll want top check with your ISP directly to confirm. [ Ryan Jan 20, 2018 ] Staff
