    I have comcast internet and I have an Arris older router/modem combo.It seems that we have to disconnect the router a lot to get the speed to work.Is it better to have a combo or separate router and modem.Any suggestions.

    Are you renting the modem?

    What speeds are you getting when it works, and when it doesn't work?
