In Albuquerque, I use a Motorola SB6141. I bought it because it has
one cable jack and one ethernet port; I wanted to use my own wireless
router. It only supports about 300 Mbps max (my own service isn't
anywhere close to that); if you want something faster and don't mind
bringing your own router, one of the bigger models like SB6190 or SB8200
is the first direction I'd look.
