    If you have wireless devices, go for a wireless modem as these will have ports to go with wired. Cox does provide one for a small cost per month. I would suggest checking with Cox to make sure what modems they will allow on their network if you are looking to buy your own.

    I would suggest a DOCSIS 3.1 modem, although 3.0 should be OK and 4.0 is the latest. Of course, it would be better for you to check with the ISP.

    There actually is no such thing as a wireless modem, but you'll often see a modem/wireless router combo called a "wireless modem." I prefer separate devices but others prefer the combos.
