Can I use a Purchased Modem?

I recently upgraded to a high end gaming router and my wifi and speeds have substantially improved.

To do this I put the Hitron GB router (4582U) on bridge mode and am currently using it in conjunction with my router on modem only mode.

I invested in a high end router so am wondering if to would make sense to invest in a high end cable modem or would it be relatively the same? Any bottlenecks that the Hitron in bridge only generated that a high end cable modem would fix? Any experience with doing this would be appreciated.

Re: Can I use a Purchased Modem?

Rogers will not allow you to use your own modem. This has been discussed several times previously in other threads.  Although WiFi capability may vary, this doesn't apply when used bridged and I doubt there would be any performance difference modem-wise.
