New cable modem?

Recommended Posts

Got an email from Comcast/Xfinity telling me my cable modem is outdated and I should upgrade.


I have the Motorola SB6121.


I guess my question is - should I upgrade now or wait?  If I upgrade, should I by a DOCSIS 3.1 modem?  They are still awfully pricey... From my understanding, my current modem is already DOCSIS 3.0.  If I upgrade my modem, I might as well upgrade my main router as well, as I am still running an older Apple Time Capsule.  (I do have a newer router running from an ethernet connection on the main level.)  Any decent routers that will cover well from the basement of a large 2-story house?
