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.

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.
