    I need a new modem but do not need a built in wifi on it because I want to use my wifi router as a AP only; so just need a modem and wired router - is there a product like that with modem with router only?

    What is your connection type as well?

    Personally, I just disable the wifi on my ISP supplied units.

    I have Xfinity and bought a like new Arris Surfboard SB6183 on ebay for $25. Just have to call Xfinity after you hook it up so they can activate it.
