*NOTE FROM NETDUMA FRASER*
Keep in mind, the R1 still works with those listed you just may get a better experience with those in the compatibility list. Some people use those in the non compatible list and have no issues.
There is no reason to purchase another modem/router unless you have specifically found issues with your existing modem/router.
You are advised to do your own research before making a financial commitment.
THIS IS IN NO WAY A FULL LIST OF THE BEST GAMING MODEMS.
AS A GENERAL RULE - STAY AWAY FROM ISP PROVIDED "ALL IN ONE" MODEM/ROUTER HUBS IF YOU CAN.
IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A NEW MODEM AND WANT TO BE SURE IT WILL WORK PROPERLY ONLY PURCHASE FROM THE GOOD MODEM LIST.

*By "bad" modem we mean ones that either have bugged chipsets which cause slowdowns and huge ping spikes under load or ones that have been tested and proven to cause less than optimal gaming experiences.
