Netgear CM1200 Compatibility
The Netgear CM1200 DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem is compatible with Atlantic Broadband, Comcast, Cox, Time Warner & Spectrum as well as some other smaller US-based carriers. Please always make sure to call you provider before ordering (even if they’re listed here) to ensure a smooth activation and complete compatibility with your setup. Luckily, the CM1200 is compatible with all wireless routers, mesh networks & other wireless devices, so feel free to use your existing router, or purchase one without hours of research.
Netgear CM1200 Speeds
The Netgear CM1200 supports wired download speeds of up to 10 Gbps. This is more than adequate for most Gigabit internet plans from US providers. Additionally, an upgrade to a device that supports such high speeds will future proof your network and prevent needing to upgrade, likely for the next several years. Since DOCSIS 3.1 is not available for all cable internet providers currently, Netgear has made this device backward compatible with all previous DOCSIS versions. You can use this device, even if your provider hasn’t upgraded their infrastructure to DOCSIS 3.1 yet.
Additionally, the CM1200 also supports wired upload speeds up to 1000 Mbps. This is more than enough to stream online, upload large files, & video chat with HD video. ModemGuides technicians highly recommend this cable modem as an all-purpose, easy to install option that will last for several years to come.
The Netgear CM1200 is designed to be easy to use and activate. Simply connect all your cables and the device will go through activation through your provider’s online portal. This allows you to complete your modem activation with the CM1200 without needing to call a service technician to your home or spend hours on the phone with your provider. You can complete your activation in less than 30 minutes, from the comfort of your couch.
Works with Any WiFi Router
This modem allows you to connect a WiFi router in order to access high-speed wireless connections. You can use an Ethernet cable to connect the CM1200 cable modem to the WAN port of your existing WiFi router, WiFi System or directly to your computer and get high-speed connectivity for all your devices. Choosing a router can be difficult since there are so many options to consider, but this modem is compatible with any. For best results, ModemGuides technicians recommend choosing a Gigabit Router to pair with the Netgear CM1200.
Multi-IP Address Support for Comcast Business
The CM1200 supports up to four (4) public IP addresses (WAN IP) with a Comcast Business account. This allows you to host multiple servers, such as email, websites, VPN gateways and more! Additionally, you’ll be able to address the challenges associated with NAT (Network Address Translation) configuration for video conferencing.
