When it comes to networking, I'm pretty much as clueless as the average PC user. So soon my family is going to switch our home internet from a 3 meg AT&T line to a 12 meg from Comcast, for the same monthly price. We're also going to get a new wireless router/modem because our is toast, it's really slow and drops all the time. WoW doesn't even work anymore except on the one desktop that's wired.
So, when we get a new router should we just buy whatever one from Comcast, or should we tell them we're just going to get our own? What would be a good router for us? The one from Comcast is $75 so we could probably spend up to $100 on a decent one. Also, right now we have a router and modem in one, it plugs directly into the wall with a phone line. I don't have a modem and I'm not sure how many aftermarket two in one deals like that are out there. Like I said I don't know much when it comes to networking

personally I prefer a separate modem and router; however, that will be out of your price range.
if they provide you with a modem and you need buy a router, get this one
