Recommendations for Comcast cable modem + wireless router in one

These come from comcasts list of approved docsis 3.0 cable modems. I am seeing conflicting reviews from amazon, newegg, etc. Does anybody have experience with these models or brands?

Motorola SBG6580 DOCSIS 3.0 Wireless Cable Modem Gateway
ZoomTelephonics Model 5352 DOCSIS 3.0 Wireless-N Cable Modem Router
ZoomTelephonics Model 5350 DOCSIS 3.0 Wireless-N Cable Modem Router
SMC DOCSIS 3.0 Wireless Gateway Cable Modem and Router

I think the Motorola and Zoom 5352 support IPv6. Is IPv6 good to have?
Thanks for any help on this.

  1. In my experience ALL-IN-ONE modem/routers don't work as well as separate modem and router.

    they have the tendency run run hot and have less configuration options then regular routers.
  2. Emerald is correct,
    Currently running the motorola sbg6580 and its a POS. <-avoid.

    I have never had problems with modem+wireless routers until I got the Zoom 5352 this week. It overheats and disconnects. I am returning it to the store tomorrow. I read a lot of conflicting reviews, too. It looks like not all of them overheat, but it is definitely a big issue if you get one of the ones that does overheat.
