Hello. Im currently switching my isp. Rogers to Teksavvy. I currently have the SMC wireless g gateway router/modem combo and I know it wont work with the new isp. So I am in the market for a new modem and a new router. I have no idea what to get (or what is compatible), Help appreciated!

Also we are going to have 4 computers connected through Ethernet so hopefully a shortage of ports wont be a issue.

Thanks!

You can always rent the modem from your ISP, you can use any router you please.

Depends on what service you get, cable or DSL. They have routers listed. I used my older Motorola SB5100, but I have their cable internet service.

Although somewhat late, I'd recommend that you get a docsis 3.0 modem for optimum speed and performance. I used to have the older one (I think SB5100) but the SB6120 (both are from motorola) performs much better.
