Works with Major Cable Providers
Owning your own modem allows you to eliminate rental fees from your service provider. The Linksys AC1900 Cable Modem Router is certified to work with Internet service plans from popular cable providers, including Comcast Xfinity and Charter Spectrum.
Upgraded AC Speeds for Enhanced Performance

The modem router provides enough bandwidth to support 12+ devices simultaneously without lag or buffering.
Get the Most Out of Your Existing Cable Connection
Maximize the data transfer speeds of your current Internet service plan with 24 download and 8 upload bonded channels on the AC1900 Cable Modem Router.

    Linksys CG7500 reviews

    CG7500 AC1900 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Modem Wi-Fi Router is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works Great.... almost I just bought this and everything works perfect on xfinity. easy set, up easy activation. xfinity was quick and easy. The problem is my moto g5 plus (also brand new) will not stay connected to wifi. i have tried everything. Reset this, reboot that... i am fed up. I can't figure it out. My laptop works great, My kids iphone works great. It connects and drops over and over. no interference from anything and i'm about 10 ft from the router with nothing in the way. Oh, and the phone connects to everyone else's wifi without a problem, so its hard to blame the phone. it's rather annoying and stupid. get something else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install and configure1 Easy to install and configure, has all the features you need. basically 6 easy steps and you are up and running. I even added a camera and went to the security section for port forwarding! took longer for the cable company to switch the mac address than it did to install this unit and as advertised I can return my old modem and stop paying a monthly fee. smaller footprint and one less power jack taken up. I have a Ranch and I have coverage from one end of the house to the other and my linksys ac1900 is at the far end of the house. this box is definitely worth a look!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant Product I absolutely love every aspect of this modem/router. I was very easy to set up. The range was great for me once I based it upstairs. I would not recommend keeping it in the basement unless you use range extenders. I had much better wireless performance and bandwidth with it based upstairs then I added a range extender in my basement. The Modem delivers great overall performance. Setup was easy except dealing with my ISP company. They wanted me to stay with their product but I feel this Modem out performs theirs. Excellent product I would highly recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with this combo modem and router Was looking for a new cable modem and decided to try this combination modem and router. Have always had good results with previous routers and range extenders from Linksys, both at home at at the office. Very pleased with results so far. I don't stream often so am not aware of any speed issues. Easy set up but did have to call my cable company during set up. Was happy to eliminate the separate router but may keep it and try to set up a separate network. My previous modem was also a linksys and performed well but was due for an upgrade.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great but not supported by Cox This didn’t work at first and kept dropping connections to all my devices which was very frustrating. Cox did not list this router under compatible devices so I just chose one from their list that was “close” and had them add it. It works but the dual band is not supported which is what was causing so many problems. I disabled the 2.4 channel and only broadcast the 5ghz band since it was pulling down speeds in excess of 150 mbps. It’s been working great for 2 weeks with no problems. Almost all of my devices utilize “n” but for those few that don’t, I have set up a extender to broadcast 2.4 and 5 while only utilizing the one band from this router. Maybe in the future Cox will support this router and I will be able to use dual band but it’s a non-issue for now. Hope this helps.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Unit - Simple set-up and VERY FAST This modem / router combo rocks. I really didn't think I'd like this but , I was dead wrong. The set-up was unbelievably easy ( I was up and running in less than twenty minutes) and the performance rivals my LInksys WRT 1900AC. I actually think it ran better than my 1900 because I had No channel assignment issues - just plug-N-play performance with no hassle . Very nice unit and I highly recommend it. I'm going to purchase another one for my Son. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Modem with Super Features! Easy to install and setup. WiFi range covers my whole 1600sq home with very good signal strength throughout. I get excellent WiFi speeds, up to about 800mb on 5G network. Have used for over 6 months and had no issues at all. Modem has the typical Linksys quality and reliability. Very happy with this product. Only wish it had the option to have telephone, just in case I ever wanted to add a landline again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
