RCN Approved Modems

RCN is a different ISP (internet service provider). You must meet RCN’s requirements in choosing a modem for their internet service, because they do not offer an actual RCN approved modems list. If you meet RCN’s following qualifications, a modem should work on their network.

  • At least 8 Downstream Channels
  • DOCSIS 3.0 or DOCSIS 3.1 certified
  • Cannot be an eMTA (cable modem and telephone adapter); phone service requires a RCN provided eMTA in addition to an approved modem
  • Customers with fiber-to-the-home service must use a RCN internet device
  • Currently not compatible with the RCN network: Motorola MB8600 DOCSIS 3.1 modem

The modems listed on this page carry the minimum modem requirements for RCN internet service.

108 thoughts on “RCN Approved Modems”

    • Yes, the NETGEAR C6300BD is compatible with RCN, but it is advised that you do not purchase this modem gateway. This network device contains an Intel Puma chipset, which may give you problems. You can read more about Intel Puma Chipset Defects here. You should pick a different modem.

    • Hi David,

      As stated at the top of the page (bullet list), RCN requires you to use their eMTA (telephone adapter). You can still use your own modem with RCN’s eMTA. Thanks for the question.

    • Thanks Felipe for the question.

      Yes, the ARRIS SBG10 will work with RCN’s internet service. It is both a modem and WiFi router. However, you should avoid purchasing the ARRIS SBG10 as it contains an Intel Puma chipset. You can read more about the problems with this chipset on the Intel Puma 6 Modem List Chipset Defects page.

      You should really pick a different device for a hassle free experience. The NETGEAR C7000 is highly recommended.

      • I thought this only worked with Xfinity? I’ve had this router with them for about a year and am switching to RCN, you’re sure this will work with RCN?

        • Mike, if you need phone service from RCN, you will need to use a RCN eMTA. If you need the ARRIS SVG2482AC for modem and router use only, you might be able to use it for RCN (the device has 24 downstream channels). RCN states that the only device that does not currently work with their network is the Motorola MB8600.

          To make sure, you should contact RCN and give them your local address. Let us know what they say, Mike.

  1. Does RCN support netgear CM1150V-100NAS.
    It has phone support, so I assume you would also need an eMTA adapter.
    Does that mean you have to pay for VOIP?

    • Yes, RCN should support the NETGEAR CM1150V-100NAS since it has at least 8 downstream channels. But since you will need to pay for a separate RCN eMTA device for phone service (verify the cost of the eMTA with RCN for your area), the CM1150V is an expensive device just to use as a modem with 4 ethernet ports. Unless you plan on using the device with another ISP in the future, you would be better off choosing a cheaper modem to use for RCN service.

      Yes, you will have to use RCN’s eMTA device for phone service. There will be a cost for “renting” the eMTA plus the cost for the phone service itself (based on what package you order – phone, TV, internet).

      The RCN eMTA also contains a modem, but you will be stuck with whatever performance they give you instead of choosing your own device.

    • Unfortunately, no, Chris. The NETGEAR C7800 Nighthawk X4S DOCSIS 3.1 Ultra-High Speed WiFi Cable Modem Router Combo is one of only two modems that RCN has specifically stated is NOT compatible with their network (please see the forth bullet point at the top of the page).

      RCN has been trying for months to get the C7800 certified. Sorry, Chris, you will have to choose another device.

  2. Is the Netgear CM700 compatible? It seems to work fine most of the time, but I’m having issues getting downstream channels periodically.

    • Yes, James, the NETGEAR CM700 is compatible, but you are mostly likely encountering the Intel Puma chipset defect. You can read about the issues in the link provided.

      In short, you should avoid the CM700. You may want to purchase a different modem.

  3. I have a MOTOROLA MT7711 that I bought for Comcast – disregarding the VoIP feature, can it be used for RCN? Thanks in advance!

    • Yes, Andy, the Motorola MT7711 will work with RCN if you disregard the VoIP functionality. Thanks for the question.

      • AC1200 just refers to the speed of the WiFi, which NETGEAR has several devices that operate at Internet connection combined speeds of 1200 Mbps. You may be referring to the NETGEAR C6220, which is a modem and router combo unit. And yes, Daniel, it is approved for use on RCN’s network.

        Thanks for asking. Did that answer your question?

        • A caveat to that answer… I have one and on moving service from one address 2 block away in Chicago the modem stopped working, despite both RCN service. Apparently the Netgear model I purchased on Amazon, a brand new in the box, was originally a Comcast ordered version. It locked out at the new address and even after factory reset continuously went to “Ready to start your xfinity service” screen on every website after modem / WiFi router initialization. $120 down drain as RCN said that type of lockout of other providers is common with xfinity and other major provider s

    • Yes, they are both approved. The NETGEAR CM1000-100NAS means it is a regular NETGEAR retail box. The CM1000-1AZNAS means it is an Amazon packaged box (most likely frustration-free or easy open). The devices in the boxes are the same.

      Thanks for the question, Pedro.

    • Hello SG,

      No, it is not. The Actiontec GT784WNV is a DSL device. RCN requires a cable modem device – a DOCSIS 3.0 or DOCSIS 3.1 modem to be precise.

  4. Hi ModemGurus, the Arris SURFboard SB8200 is not yet on your list. It doesn’t have the Intel Puma chip, which is good, but would this modem be compatible with RCN? Thank you!

    • Hi Jen,

      Yes, the ARRIS SURFboard SB8200 is compatible with the RCN network. The SB8200 is on the RCN approved modem list and as you said, it does NOT contain the Intel Puma chipset.

      Thanks for the question.

      • Just FYI, I just had a RCN technician that they have a lot of problems with the SB8200 and told me to get a different modem. Mine also wasn’t working.

      • But you are showing the ARRIS SB8200 as a “no” on your list above. Along w/ the proceeding 12/27/19 note from “Michael in New York”, perhaps you want to amend your 7/1/19 comment where you indicate this modem is compatible and on the RCN approved model list.

        Thank you for all your great work on this website.

  5. Hello, I am deciding between this two, which one would you recommend for RCN compatibility? Netgear N900 Dual Band Gigabit WIFI Router (CG4500BD) or NETGEAR – N450 WiFi Cable Modem Router (CG3000D v2)?
    Thank you!

      • Hello, Thank you for this wonderful resource. I notice that you highly recommend the NETGEAR C7000. However, the description on the Amazon link says that it is

        “Built for fast speed: best for cable provider plans up to 400 mbps speed.Modem technology: Engineered with 24×8 channel bonding and DOCSIS 3.0.”

        I do have the 256 plan (Washington DC) with RCN but this Modem doesn’t seem to give me room to grow. I’d prefer to buy Docsis 3.1 with at least a gig bandwidth modem/wifi combo. Do you have a recommended device?

          • Hello Modem Gurus,

            Thank you for your prompt reply. This is very helpful and actually my service level is up to 330Mpbs. These wifi modems are pricey but I have the feeling that if I spend $200 on the Netgear C7000 I’ll end up needing a replacement sooner than later. Although, I’m not sure that with my current modem (its quite old) I’m actually experiencing the full benefits of the 330Mpbs plan. I think I’ll try one of the Docsis 3.1 units you recommend to see if I get full extent of 330Mpbs and still have space to grow when necessary. Thank You!

          • Your welcome, LLEE. Yes, DOCSIS 3.1 modems are more expensive than DOCSIS 3.0 devices. Adding WiFi on top of that adds an additional cost. But as you say, if you feel you will be purchasing another device so soon after getting the NETGEAR C7000, it is probably best to future-proof yourself. The choice is yours, obviously. Any DOCSIS 3.1 device will more than allow you to reach the full benefit of your 330 Mbps speed (with plenty of room to grow).

    • Pedro, thanks for the question and for pointing out a missing modem on this page. The NETGEAR CM1200 has been added to the RCN approved modems list. Currently, only the Motorola MB8600 and the NETGEAR C7800 are not certified by RCN as DOCSIS 3.1 modems.

  6. Sorry, I understand now, the “WiFi” designation indicates that the modem is a modem/router combo with built-in wifi functionality. Sorry for the confusion and unnecessary comment. Please delete both of my comments. But you may still want to consider the 12/27/19 comment from “Michael in New York” relative to RCN’s support of the ARRIS SB8200. Thank you.

    • ATC, glad you figured out the “WiFi” designation. Until RCN actually states the ARRIS SB8200 is not compatible with their network, it will continue to be listed as approved. RCN has stated that Motorola MB8600 and the NETGEAR C7800 are not compatible with their network (but only these two DOCSIS 3.1 modems). For people that read the comments, you may want to avoid the SB8200 or all DOCSIS 3.1 modems until RCN gets a handle on these more advanced modems.

      “Michael in New York” may be experiencing a local problem with the SB8200. Other cities may not experience issues.

      Thanks for the input, ATC.

      • Hi Guru,

        The man who will be doing the installation told me I need a docsis 3.1 modem/router combo.
        You say rcn can’t handle docsis 3.1? Does that mean that Arris SBG8300 is a no go? All the modems in the list are 3.0 or they don’t have wifi.

        • First of all, avoid the ARRIS SBG8300 as it contains an Intel Puma chipset. If you need a DOCSIS 3.1 modem, it is best to combine that with a separate router, since as you mentioned, all of the modems on the list don’t have a built-in router.

          RCN should be able to handle DOCSIS 3.1 since they only exclude two DOCSIS 3.1 models from being used on their network: Motorola MB8600 and the NETGEAR C7800. All other DOCSIS 3.1 devices should work with RCN since they have only excluded the two model numbers.

          Hope this helps runpazu.

  7. Can you recommend a cable modem to be used with RCN 20 Mbps. The RCN rep told me to not get one that is rated for higher speeds because i would have to pay for service at the next level.

    Edit – I meant to say 250 Mbps not 20 Mbps speed

    • Hello KennyD,

      While it is more than you currently need, the NETGEAR CM500 is the best bet here. The modem should reach anywhere between 300-375 Mbps (max theoretical download speed of 680 Mbps). It is only $60 at Amazon.

      FYI, just because you have a faster modem than your speed plan, you don’t “have to pay for service at the next level.” For example, you could purchase an even faster modem now (DOCSIS 3.1 modem), and be set for the future without having to upgrade your modem later. You can stick with the 250 Mbps plan now, and in 3 years upgrade to the Gig Internet plan if you like. The RCN rep is wrong to say “to not get one that is rated for higher speeds because i would have to pay for service at the next level.” Thanks for the question, KennyD.

  8. RCN support today told me that to get VOIP they will provide an emta modem, but the cable modem router that I provide needs to support VOIP. From the list above, none of them seem to support VOIP. What should I do? What should I buy to get VOIP?

    • Jaim, no VoIP devices are listed because that is the purpose of the eMTA. If RCN is telling you to use a VoIP device, the NETGEAR CM500V is a top choice.

      But you should verify with RCN about your current modem router device. Reps are known for giving different advice to the same person. Contact RCN just to verify you need to actually purchase another device.

      • Modem Gurus,
        Excellent help thank you. Especially about Puma chipset.
        My problem stemmed from the first two RCN tech support people telling me that to get a landline I needed a cable modem router combo that supported VOIP.
        Subsequently I have talked to three RCN tech support people that tell me the emta modem they provide, free for all their landline customers, works independently of the cable modem router combo. It is not necessary to have a cable modem router that supports VOIP. I can therefore make a choice from your list above, and obviously staying away from Puma devices, as I don’t have one currently. Thanks again

        • Thanks for responding back, Jaim. It didn’t make sense that RCN was telling you to use two VoIP devices together. Thank you for sharing your experience with the RCN techs.

          Glad you got the information you were looking for in regards to what device you actually need.

    • Unfortunately, since RCN has not yet approved the NETGEAR C7800, you don’t have the option of a modem router combo for DOCSIS 3.1. You could purchase an approved DOCSIS 3.1 modem and a separate router (the TP-Link Archer A7 is a cheap and popular option) to achieve what you need, Chris. Hope this helps you.

  9. Is this equipment compatible with RCN?

    ARRIS Surfboard Docsis 3.1 Gigabit Cable Modem Plus AC2350 Dual Band Wi-Fi Router, 1 GB Service (SBG8300)

    • While the ARRIS SBG8300 should be compatible with RCN, you should avoid it since it contains the Intel Puma chipset, which has issues maintaining a proper online connection. You can read about the bad Intel Puma 6 chipsets for more information.

      Hope that helps, Maureen.

    • Hello Cheng,

      The NETGEAR CAX80 is a new device that has just released into the market a couple of months ago. While RCN does not outright claim that the CAX80 would not work with their network, like they do with the Motorola MB8600 and the NETGEAR C7800, it is best to contact your local RCN representatives and get a definitive answer for your residential address. RCN may not have had time to evaluate the NETGEAR CAX80 since it has just released.

      Stay safe, Cheng.

  10. So glad I came across this list! Purchased the C7000 and it’s working great, it might even be safe to say it’s faster than the one we were renting. When I called to have it installed the guy told me I should’ve bout a 3.1 but didn’t offer to back up any particular brand. I’m happy with my purchase. Thanks for providing such an extensive list.

  11. Hello,

    Wondering if the NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 Dual-Band Cable Modem Router is a compatibale router with RCN in the Washington D.C. area?


    • Herman, it looks like you are referring to the NETGEAR C7000. Yes, that device will work with RCN and is even a recommended buy for the best WiFi modem.

  12. Is the Ubee DDW365 compatible! I have the Ubee UBC1301 that I’m renting from RCN. I only have Internet with WiFi. I don’t have cable channels nor am I going to get cable! Can I purchase this device for 500 mbps

    • Yes, the Ubee DDW365 is on the RCN approved modem list. However, Doris, it will not get you 500 Mbps. You will need to choose a faster device to achieve that speed.

  13. I bought the netgear cm600 and they said it couldn’t connect and the error was: DEVICE NOT REGISTERED ON THE NETWORK.

    oddly, I got to an rcn page on my computer which wanted to me set up my cable modem but it woulnd’t process the request. Any ideas if I got a dud modem or if that one doesn’t really work with RCN?


    • Hello Kris,

      Sounds like you got a dud modem. The NETGEAR CM600 is one of the most popular modems and should definitely work with RCN. Return the modem and try another CM600 if you would like. Don’t use a pre-owned modem (if that is what you have) as that introduces different problems like the modem still registered in someone else’s ISP account or defective electronics.

      Good luck, Kris.

    • Mir,

      The following are DOCSIS 3.1 modems:

      ARRIS CM8200
      ARRIS SB8200
      NETGEAR CM1000
      NETGEAR CM1100
      NETGEAR CM1200

      All of these modems are compatible with RCN.

  14. I think some of the comments have helped clarify, but just to confirm: at the top you mention the Motorola MB8600 as the only one not compatible. But then in the actual list, most of the modems have an X for WiFi. Does this mean, for example, that the Netgear CM600 will work, it’s just not officially approved by RCN?

    • The NETGEAR CM600 is compatible with RCN. The X for WiFi means the device does not have WiFi capabilities; you will need a stand-alone router if you require WiFi. In other words, if a device has an X for WiFi, it means the modem is not a combo modem & router device. Thanks for the question.

  15. You note that the C7800 is not supported by RCN in the comments section and refer to the top of the page that lists known non-compatible modems. The C7800 is no longer at the top of the page (only he Motorola is listed) does that mean that the C7800 is supported now?

    • You are correct, Mike, NETGEAR C7800 approval was added last month. RCN approved the device in May 2020. Thanks for the question.

        • The NETGEAR C7800 just got approved in May 2020. Not all of RCN local regions may have been updated yet. You should wait, Jose; RCN should allow this device (or RCN should put it back on the blacklist of uncertified modems).

  16. So, does anyone know why RCN doesn’t support the Motorola MB8600? Seems like they’ve had the same disclaimer on their website for years but haven’t actually made any attempts to certify it.

    • No idea why the Motorola MB8600 continues to give RCN problems. It has been listed as a problem for several months as you pointed out, Adam. The good news is the NETGEAR C7800 was listed as problematic for months and was finally approved in May 2020. Hopefully that means the Motorola MB8600 will be approved soon.

  17. Why does RCN not allow use of BYO EMTA for their phone service? . I just picked up an “exact” same model as RCN Arris TM822G but RCN will not accept it .

    • Hello Ed B,

      RCN has not given a reason as to why you must use their own eMTA. It could possibly be a way to collect a rental fee now or in the future. Companies are always trying to find ways to get more money.

      You may want to contact RCN directly to see if they will give you an actual reason or say it is just a company policy reasoning (they will likely ask you for your address and account information). The likely answer is so that RCN can properly setup the phone service with their network for your address.

  18. Hi, thanks for this site! Since RCN doesn’t provide this information on their own site, it is extremely helpful.

    Question: Can you verify that 8 channel modems are still compatible?
    Suggestion: Would love if the number of ethernet ports was included.

    Thank you!

    • Hi Diane,

      Yes, 8 downstream channel modems are still compatible with RCN service. Unfortunately, adding any more columns to the tables makes it too congested, especially since 50% of viewers of this site are on mobile devices with small screens. If you need multiple ethernet ports, look for devices that include WiFi, which is included in the tables.

      Glad you find the ApprovedModemList.com website useful. Thanks for the question, Diane.

  19. Hi! Is the NETGEAR C6250 Modem Router Combo compatible with RCN? I’m in Boston and I’m planning on buying the 100Mbps Internet Plan. Also, thank you for this entire thread! It’s been so so SO helpful! <3

  20. Hi! I’m wondering what modem AND router you would recommend for the most reliable wifi (an NYC apartment building). I know I should go for a 32-channel, DOCSIS 3.1 model.

  21. Hi! What do you recommend for a Chicago apartment that is very long (instead of wide/open) and has concrete walls? I know I need a DOCSIS 3.1 modem/router for the 500 Mbps internet package. Is there a benefit to getting a separate modem + router vs. an all-in-one? Thank you!

    • Anna,

      Since you have apartment neighbors, you will want to look at the best WiFi tech available on the market today (WiFi 6). The NETGEAR CAX80 is both a DOCSIS 3.1 modem and a WiFi 6 router. While pricey, it will help to avoid conflicts with your neighbors’ devices.

      You can read about the benefits and drawbacks on combo units and separate devices in the Cable Modem Buying Guide (look under the subheading Pros and Cons of Combo Modem and Router Devices). Hope this helps you, Anna.

    • Yes, the NETGEAR CM2000 is compatible with RCN. The device has been added to the RCN approved modem list. Thanks for the question, Jack.

    • It should be compatible with RCN; only the Motorola MB8600 is not approved for RCN’s network. However, you should really stay away from the NETGEAR CBK752. This device contains the NETGEAR CBR750 modem router which incorporates a bad Intel Puma chipset. You will likely encounter connection issues. Ace, the reality is you should avoid this device.

  22. I have a Arris SB6141 and am seeking RCN approved firmware, I believe the file name is R155_15-1-MOTOSB6141

    How do I receive firmware from RCN for the above Cable Modem?

    • Only RCN can push the firmware to your modem (this is done automatically). If they haven’t pushed a certain firmware version yet, it is because they have not fully tested for stability and compatibility with their network. Unfortunately, Fran, you are stuck with what you have until an update by RCN is completed.

    • Yes, the TP-Link Archer A7 is compatible with RCN. It is just a router. Any router will work with internet service. However, only certain modems are approved by internet service providers.
