Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best yet for xfinity Much better than expected for giving me all the MPS I am paying for. I tried other modems but found that thy could not deliver what was advertised. Most were giving me 500 MPS and i am paying for 800 MPS. This one is giving me 975 MPS when tested from Xfinity tech. and two other testing sites. Best buy made for a modem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Fast Setup and Operation This is an ideal Modem to replace the Xfinity one. I have a Netgear AX-120 Router which provides WIFi and DHCP. Using this modem means that Bridge Mode is not needed. There is one simple WAN connection to the Router. The Set-up menus are clear and installation was fast. If you have a separate Router, then this is a much better solution than buying a Modem/Router with WiFi where Bridge Mode must be implemented. Works great and DOCSIS 3.1 delivers GB download speeds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Easy Install Have Xfinity 1.2 gig service. Was using Motorola MB8600 and Asus Wi-Fi router. The most I was able to get over Wi-Fi was 520 when next to the wifi router. Xfinity service came out and verified that the modem was putting out over one gig. I changed to the Netgear 2.5 gig modem as I had added Xfinity voice and I am still using the ASUS Wi-Fi router. My average wifi download speed immediately increased 300 GB to over 700. No idea why but quite happy with the upgrade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Best Modem for Xfinity Voice As part of my Xfinity Triple Play package I got "gigabit intenet" with up to 1200Mpps (when using ethernet. This was last summer but I only had a DOCSIS 3.0 Arris Modem. Last week I got the Netgear CM2050V DOCSIS 3.1 Modem. WOW... my ethernet and wifi speeds skyrocketed. Ethernet went from 250 to 940Mbps for my iMac and Apple TV 4K, WiFi on iPad Pro. (5th Gen) went from 170 to 315 Mbps, iPhone Xs WiFi went from 75 range up to 330 Mbps. For comparison speeds were taken from the same location relative to my wifi router on the same day within a couple hours of each other. I set up the Netgear modem with the Xfinity App on my iPhone. It was super easy. Start to finish less than 30 minutes it was up and running. Super happy with the Netgear Modem. I use an Apple Time Capsule as my router. No problems with compatibility. Someday I may switch to a Netgear WiFi 6 router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Depends on Provider Speed (1150V vs 2050V) I had the Netgear CM1150V cable modem and kept getting emails from my provider (Comcast) that my modem wasn't taking advantage of the speeds being sent to me in my plan. My plan is just under one Gbps, and the CM1150V handled it well. But, since speed was close to the limit of the modem, I upgraded to this CM2050V cable modem. First physical thing I noticed it was smaller and lighter compared to the 1150V, and was less warm (assuming it doesn't pull as much power, those same input adapter). For me, I'm finding, both modems for my internet plan (under 1 Gbps) perform identically the same. They both work very well for data and voice, both DOCSIS 3.1, both voice capable, but the 2050V does not provide me anything that I didn't have before. I'm sure if my plan download speed was over 1 Gbps, then the CM 2050V modem would be an advantage. Don't notice any difference between the two modems for performance at provider speeds under 1 Gbps. Specs for both modems seem about the same, except for the higher port input speed of 2.5 Gbps in the CM2050V, vs the 1 Gbps in the CM1150V. Point is, if you're using the CM1150V, and your data plan is under 1 Gbps, no reason to upgrade yet. I guess I have a back-up modem now. However, you can't go wrong with either modem. Both perform and work excellent, and my 1150V is over 3 years old with no issues.

While Comcast charges 14 to 19 a month for the rental on theirs, this will for the first year basically be a cost per month to own of $22 a month.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An outstanding replacement for my outdated modem My cable company's software changes made my SLOWER modem - which had worked flawlessly for 15 years - obsolete. I replaced it with the NETGEAR Nighthawk 2.5Gbps Internet Speed Cable Modem with Voice (CM2050V) and have been delighted with both NETGEAR's customer service and the outstanding performance of the modem. My download and upload speeds have almost doubled. Also, it works flawlessly with my new router. Please note that this modem model has only one ethernet outlet port. If you want multiple ethernet outlets, please choose one of NETGEAR's fine modem/router combo products. You will not be disappointed.

I get much faster speeds, what I am paying for I finally get! I haven't had to reboot the system since installing it, I was doing it about three times a day with the Xfinity Gateway. If you have an Xfinity Voice plan don't forget you need to get this modem or you will lose your service even if you don't use the telephone. My only regret, not doing this two years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ditch your Xfinity Gateway I only wish that I had made the switch sooner, for the first time I am actually getting what I paid for in regards to my Internet speed, to tell you the truth it seems to be a little bit faster. I haven't needed to reset or reboot my modem yet since I changed over from the Xfinity gateway. I am a paralyzed veteran so my whole house is smart and I really rely on technology, previously I was resetting xfinitys Gateway three times a day just to get my plan speed or so that it would actually work. Now I am no longer paying Xfinity rent for a piece of junk that doesn't work. The speed from this modem and my wireless router together absolutely crush what I was getting before. I have had zero issues I totally recommend making the switch, you have to remember if you have a voice plan you need to get a modem with voice or you will lose your deal even if you do not use the phone. This is the obvious choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alternative to ISP cable modem I was looking for a solution to replace my Xfinity cable modem. I had two requirements. I need the land line service and I wanted to make sure that the internet bandwidth had room to grow. I did not want to have to upgrade anytime soon. I did a lot of research and ultimately decided on the CM2050V because it checked all the boxes at a reasonable price. Fortunately it was on sale when I made my final decision. Installation was very easy and I had it all connected and working in probably about 30 minutes. I will share a tip if you are moving from the ISPs gateway to your own equipment. One thing I learned in years of working in IT is don't make too many changes at the same time. So what I did was put the ISPs gateway in bridge mode first. That allowed me to make sure that my router worked correctly without changing out the cable modem. I let that run for a couple days and then swapped out the cable modem. That way if I had a problem I most likely knew which box the problem was in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great and was simple to use et's all remember, this is a modem. It's not a router. For me, that's good as I have a router/firewall device on the other side. Because it's a modem, its sole job is to pass through the single DHCP address from Xfinity. Configuration is pretty simple, you plug it in. From there you have to hook up a laptop/desktop to it to get into its local config so you can get the MAC to send to Xfinity, then that's pretty much it. A few gotchas though. I have multiple VLANs setup in different rooms and I put this on a VLAN from the switch. It did not like that. It couldn't pass the IP address back to my firewall/router. I didn't spend too much time troubleshooting it, rather I just added a coaxial wire to the room where my firewall is located (which has a service panel close to the coaxial main). The product has worked well for what I need. I haven't noticed a decrease in performance over the old Xfinity modem/router/WiFi combo. I bought this because my Xfinity device died, and I have my own WiFi (Orbi), and I also have a complex 2 ISP configuration, which cannot be easily managed with the Xfinity router. The dumb modem allows me to solve most of my problems. The above was posted on Amazon. I did run into one issue, not with the modem, with the service. Xfinity actually charges you more for using your own hardware than renting theirs. It's unfortunate. The device is great and I will pay the extra $5 per month (instead of saving $14 as expected). When they reconfigured the plan I went from 80mbps up to 40mbps up. This isn't the device, because I was getting really great upload speeds prior to having them change the plan to include the customer-owned hardware. They said it was the hardware, but the hardware ran fine for a week. It turns out they throttled it and you have to call them and argue through it with them. This is important information because it's not the device, it's the service levels on their side, so if you see things that don't look correct after it's setup and verified, then it's probably on their side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need More Gigs I have this modem that I use for my Xfinity internet service. I have a RAXE 500 Router, along with the matching Nighthawk extender. Xfinity now offers 10 G speed, but I can't get it because they tell me this modem will not handle it. Xfinity also offers 4K cable TV, but because I don't have their modem (even though I have a Denon 8k receiver and a Samsung 8K TV), I can't even upgrade to their new cable box. I have even thought of changing my router from the RAXE 500, to the new Orbi, but what good is it if you don't make a matching modem to handle it? If I have to pay to get Xfinity's modem/router, then why do I need any of your equipment at all? I'm all for having my own equipment and saving money by not renting equipment from Xfinity (of course that is after I pay off the money for buying your equipment). Not to mention, that I prefer having your equipment above anyone else's, but don't you think that the modem should be as powerful as the router?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unreal Speed, no drops My modem I leased from Comcast was always sketchy. I went from dropping intervener and needing to rest set once in a while, to once a month, to once a week, to every few days, to every day, to 3 times a day. That day was the last straw. I haven’t had an internet issue since I set this bad boy up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Modem from Netgear(Strongly Recommend) Purchased Netgear Cable Modem 2050V directly from Netgear website to replace the Xfinity modem. It works great with the Xfinity Internet and my house phone services. I also purchased Netgear Nighthawk Wi-Fi 6 Mesh Networking 3-piece System router. I strongly recommend the Netgear Cable Modem 2050V and also compatible with Xfinity for those of you who are Xfinity subscribers. Works Great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Modem but Phone Lines No Good for RCN As a buyer, I'm uncomfortable seeing the name of a competing internet service provider on the actual tech product I'm considering. Looks like a thing that will only work with Company X. But I did a LOT more (time-consuming) research to be sure the Netgear Nighthawk CM2050v would be the modem to grow into, even if I discontinue my RCN phone/internet service and want to keep my landline and fax phone line with another ISP. It wasn't plug-and-play, as one of the video reviews would suggest. I'm not sure how that person plugged it in and had it interface with her ISP and router with no phonecall to her ISP. There's a MAC number on the unit that needs to be reported to your service provider in order to get it running. (Maybe if you're with Company X, you don't need to call it in?) Alas, the phone agent at my ISP ultimately bailed and scheduled me for an in-home appointment. After a lot of household disruption, this cable modem works as well as to be expected within the bounds of what I pay for at RCN. There was an initial internet outage that lasted an entire overnight (which isn't usually our experience, which is defined by frequent but brief interruptions). So I got nervous when already I was having to recycle the power on this thing and start over. But as some of the other reviews indicated, that might happen at the outset, then after that, smooth sailing. I'm disappointed that I still have to rent a separate RCN modem just for the landline phone and fax machine. But I'm so pleased there are companies still providing landline service so I can keep these amenities in my home office. I can also send a fax digitally, sure, but it's such a convenience to send/receive faxes out of the same box that makes copies, scans, and color print jobs, so why not keep my fax line, too? Company X does warn on their product that though there are two phone lines indicated, you'd need to paying for a 2-line package in order to use both. At this point, those lights remain dark because I'm not using them. Glad I got this for the same price as a no-phone Nighthawk unit of the same caliber thanks to a sale at the time of purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New NETGEAR Modem purchased. The CM2050V modem was easy to set up. Purchase using NETGEAR's website was easy and informative of the modem's characteristics and speed. I needed it to be compatible with my server and capable of connecting for a phone line. I thought the modem would enable the faster speeds advertised, but 330 Mbps is not shabby as I noticed during Internet Speed Tests. All working well. FYI: I have a NETGEAR router as well. Thank you NETGEAR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from not compatible with Xfinity Got this email from Xfinity... "We've identified an issue with your NETGEAR internet modem We've noticed intermittent connectivity issues with your internet service and have identified the cause to be a defect with your NETGEAR CM2050V internet modem. NETGEAR is working on a software update that should fix the problem. Because the update may not be available for several months, we have taken steps in the interim to stabilize your connection and provide you with the best possible experience. These proactive measures should resolve your intermittent connectivity issues and provide you with fast speeds, but your modem may not achieve the full upstream speeds included in your Xfinity Internet package until the NETGEAR CM2050V software update is deployed."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great when it works Enabling the CM2050V modem via the Xfininity app is super easy. Download speeds on wired connections were over 1,000Mbps. Wireless around 500... almost double what I'm getting from the rented Xfinity modem. Seemed too good to be true. Then about a month after purchase, I would lose internet, requiring a reboot of the modem. After reboot, everything is fine. This happens about every 5-10 days. Xfinity says it's a Netgear problem, since I'm not renting their modem. Netgear says it's an Xfinity problem. Search either the Xfinity or Netgear forums. This is a well documented issue. After about 5 months, the second phone line stopped working. I've been going back and forth with both Xfinity and Netgear to resolve it. Both phone lines work fine when connected to Xfinity's modem, but not the CM2050V. So, to summarize, when it works, it's great. When it doesn't, it's garbage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New cable modem Our old modem, was at EOL due to it not supporting new network standards. We replaced, vs renting from the cable provider. The installation should have been simple, I needed to contact the cable company so they could update the MAC Address. 3.5 hours later, plus netgear support, determined, it was a MAC address issue with the cable company. Everything works well, except I noticed I have 39 devices on the router, so next phase upgrade the router to handle more devices. All of my newer appliances want wifi connections, plus everything else, including the 1 car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I now have Netgear Xfinity modem, separate Netgear router and a Netgear extender. They replaced Xfinity rental modem/router. No amount of telephone contact could get the Xfinity equiplent to work. Several hours of SMS chat with Xfinity got the Netgear modem working. The router and extender setup with the Nighthawk app was seamless. Speed tests show a dramatic improvement between Xfinity rental equipment and Netgear. I've been paying for 600 mbs for years and never got more than 250 mbs download. With Netgear the measure of download is 700 mbs on the Nighthawk app speed test and 260 on OpenSignal app? I use Opensignal app for speed tests. With Xfinity modem/rounter many apps and devices stopped working. Everything now works. I have the 200 page router PDF user manual on my iPad. I shall go through it to see what I can do with the router. The network disk drive looks interesting. I need to know more about Netgear Armour before I try it. I will look for the documentation. I have Apple iPhones, Ipad, Apple TV, Windows 7 and 10 computers, Android cell phone, Samsung Android A7 tablet and a Sonicdust HDHomerun ATSC 3.0 OTA TV tuner on my home network. All are now working. I could not say this for the Xfinity modem/router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 in 1 Box After ten years, the cable company started charging for two lines, with their installed splitter, one for voice and the other for cable TV/internet services. The DOCSIS 3.1 Cable Modem (CM2050V has a built-in voice modem which now saves a $50 per month fee by using a single line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does not work with XFINITY This modem does not work as advertised. There is an existing issue with this modem when connected on the XFINITY network and it gets provisioned for no more than 500M download speeds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and product support. No wifi and connects to Xfinity with no problems. Handles multiple connections with a router or switch, giving you the control over your services. Customer service is great. Found connections that were not showing up on the xfinity app. Got the connections identified and reported.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Broken software Bought this to upgrade an 1150V, worked great for a few months, then got a notice from Xfinity that I would no longer be getting full speeds on this modem, some issue with the firmware or something, that had worked just fine before. Don't know who broke it, Xfinity or Netgear, but either way Xfinity blames me for owning my own equipment, It's been about 6 months and no fix. Downgraded my account so I am not paying for speed that I can't get. Should have just stuck with the 1150V.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used to work well Due to firmware issues on Xfinity's network they rolled back firmware and despite advertised speeds (which I had prior to the roll back) it's currently capped at 24Mbps upload - was 100 Mbps. Xfintiy and Netgear have been battling this out for 6 months. Get it together guys and figure out how to resolve the issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Compatible with Xfinity This modem is not fully compatible with Xfinity. However the compatibility issue does not appear to be on Netgear's end. Xfinity is intentionally degrading the performance of this modem. Upload speeds are 1/5 as advertised by Xfinity. However, all aspects of the modem that relate to Netgear are great. The online manager tool works well and the modem does not loose connection

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Netgear and Xfinity blaming each other Purchased this modem to take advantage of Xfinity's "Enhanced Upstream Speeds" and also the voice feature for Xfinity. In my case this worked well for a few months, but apparently I was in the minority as other CM2050V owners experienced stability issues with Xfinity. Xfinity rolled back firmware update and now I have basically zero advantage vs previous modem. It works, but both Netgear and Xfinity are pointing fingers at each other for a fix that seems doubtful to actually be in the works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works good. Modem is very stable and speeds are good averaging 1.441Gbps on a 1.2Gbps connection. The bad news is one of the phone ports died 1 month after warranty expired. Figures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect solution for home network I bought this NETGEAR Nighthawk 2.5Gbps Internet Speed Cable Modem with Voice (CM2050V) in conjunction with the NETGEAR Nighthawk AX5400 Wi-Fi 6 Router (RAX50). The CM2050V does not have an internal router/Wi-Fi function, which is what I desired. In the future, I did not want to be forced to upgrade both modem and Wi-Fi/router functions when one or other became outdated or defective. In the process of installing the modem and router, I installed a NETGEAR 24 Port Gigabit Switch (JGS524v2). I retraced and tested all my Cat6E wired ports throughout the house. I plugged in my patch cables, and I was off and running. Except for a few older pieces of hardware running at 10/100, 96% of the LAN was running at 1 Gig speed. First thing, I logged into the modem and router, seamlessly, and with ease, changed the login passwords, and tweaked a few settings. Most of the factory settings were spot on for Xfinity ISP service. For my outside, wrap-around porch area, I added a NETGEAR Insight Managed WiFi 6 AX3600 Dual Band Multi-Gig Access Point (WAX620). The access point integrated flawlessly as well. I now have incredible LAN speeds both inside and outside. I am recently retired and not an IT professional. If you can read and follow the directions, you can install these products without a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Currently not fully supported by Comcast In late 2023 Xfinity/Comcast rolled back problematic firmware providing the old firmware that does not support Comcasts Mid-Split higher speeds, especially uploads greater than 20MB. It has been months and Netgear has no further information on the promised firmware fix. This devise is not recommended, although if you need phone support you may have few other choices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Longer Compatible with the Enhanced Tier on Xfinity Bought this for future proofing as it was originially on the list of supported modems for the enhanced speed markets. Read numerous reviews and verified before buying that once the enhanced speed tier got to my area, I would be able to have faster upload speeds. It has since been removed, due to firmware issues, and there appears to be no movement in correcting the issue. Netgear should offer trade in/upgrade offers for those of us who purchased with this specific use case in mind so we can have the functionality we thought we were getting when we purchased.
