Hello all. I'm about to buy my first house with my wife and we're going to be having Mediacom for internet. I've heard that most companies like to basically let you rent their modem/router when you could just buy your own instead. I was curious what you guys would recommend. Also, are they tricky to set up? I've never really dealt with them before. Thanks in advance.

I prefer to use professional gear at home. The firmware for this class of devices is well maintained for a couple of years. Having said that, I used to have self built devices with
My Wifi is Ubiquiti Unifi.
I haven't deployed a consumer device for at least 10 or more years. I don't want to generalize, but support for these devices is usually limited (time and frequency wise). Keep in mind, your router is gateway to your private network.
if you have a basic understanding of IP networking, setup is managable. Google is a good friend
