Finding a proper cable modem

Recently I upgraded my internet service to 50mbps down and 5mbps up. I wanted to buy my own modem instead of renting it from the cable company, however I can't find one with all the connections. Every modem I look at is missing the phone cable jack. Are there any modems or modem/router combos that have all of the plugs I require or am i missing something?


this is what my current modem looks like http://lunar.thegamez.net/medical/ar...em-540x405.jpg its the arris tm502g

Go to your ISP's website and see if they recommend a modem for your service. Some modems are faster with different services. Did you get cable, or DSL, or what type of service? There are different types of modems for different types of connections.
