I recently got an Arris TG1672G cable modem from Time Warner Cable (TWC)
for its recent faster Internet upgrades and having both digital phone
(eMTA) and Internet services. However, it has a wireless router built
in. I was not happy with that. The old slower Arris TM502G one didn't
have a built in router, so I used a Netgear R6300 router which was nice.
I found out that TWC didn't have any other cable modem models, with
digital phone features and without their annoying internal wireless
router. I read that these built in internal routers suck. I had to
disable the new cable modem's internal wireless and router features (no
firewall, enable bridge [no NAT], etc.).
Do these cable modems, with digital phone features, not exist these
days? I wished there was a way to buy my own cable modem with digital
phone service (no, I do not want to get two different cable modems to
coax split -- have too many splitters already to make my signals ugly).
Thank you in advance. :)
