Should I use the CM700 or keep the SB6183?

    Current setup is Comcast with 150mbps, using a net gear orbi with 2 satellites, and 6183, and wondering should I keep the sb6183 or go with the cm700.

    A issue I had earlier on with the Intel Puma 6 chipset issue, and I originally had the 6190, and the cm700 has it, so I'm wondering if its best to avoid?

    Yes, I'd stick with Broadcom chipsets, all day, every day. I find the Arris SurfBoards to be rock solid as well, so I don't think you can do wrong by staying put.

    I have an Arris DG2470A Surfboard modem provided by my ISP. It’s been up for 103 days in bridge mode without a hiccup. It seems to be a very stable platform.
