Networking: Motorola SB6183 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem + NETGEAR Router: $100 ($160 value), more

This morning, Newegg is offering a nice networking bundle for those in need of a new setup. You can grab the Motorola ARRIS SURFBoard SB6183 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem + the NETGEAR WNR2500 802.11n Wireless Router for $99.99 shipped when promo code EMCEFGK79 is applied during checkout. Note: the router is added in the cart after the code is applied. This combo carries a $160 value, as the router typically goes for around $60 by itself. Today’s bundle represents an effective low on each model and is the best price that we can currently find.

If you’re still renting your cable modem, now is the time to free yourself from that frustrating monthly charge. The Motorola ARRIS SURFboard SB6183 features DOCSIS 3.0 compatibility with speeds up to 686/131Mbps down/up and can be used with popular ISPs like Comcast, TWC, Cox and more (check with your provider to confirm eligibility). It is rated 4.5/5 stars by over 1,400 Amazon users. NETGEAR’s WNR2500 has 802.11n connectivity, 5dBi antennas and four LAN ports. Rated 4/5 stars.

… And here’s a deal for those of you who only need a modem: NETGEAR High Speed DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem $59.99 shipped (Reg. $70), lowest we’ve ever seen by about $8.

Next up, Amazon offers the TP-LINK Archer C20i AC750 Dual-Band Wireless 802.11ac Router for $24.99 Prime shipped. That’s good for $35 off the original listing, 20% less than the next reputable seller and the lowest price that we can find.

The TP-Link Archer C20i has 802.11ac dual-band connectivity, a built-in USB port for file sharing and printing, plus it has built-in Guest Network capabilities. Although ratings are somewhat mixed on this router, the TP-Link line is generally well-rated and we rarely see a 802.11ac router with USB drop to this price.
