[MN] mediacom supported modems in Cloquet, MN
I live in Cloquet, MN. I just signed back up with Mediacom, but do not want to rent the modem. Can anyone tell me what modems I could go on e-bay and buy and will work for me? I am only using the basic package with the slowest available speed,(sorry i do not know what that is, but speedtest tells me about 11mb download currently)

Welcome to the herd. We are a highly opnionated bunch, but fairly friendly. :-D
I would recommend what I recently purchased from BestBuy, which was the Zoom 5341J. Even with the Basic package, a DOCSIS 3.0 8x4 channel capable modem gives you the best chance to have things work correctly with Mediacom Facilities.
I have $80 in my modem.
Looks like you have two BestBuy stores in Duluth that are reasonably close.
The Cisco DPC 3008, and DPC3010 are two Cisco Modems that are also in the hunt. Just make sure Mediacom knows it is yours, and not theirs.
Motorola makes the SurfBoard SB6141 that several have also used. While it will be easy to find the SB6121, it is older, and only supports 4 downstream channels.
Again, welcome. We are lucky that Mediacom has staff that monitors this forum, and provides support.
I am interested in getting the SB6121, but I am also wondering about the SB6120. It is cheap, and I do not use TV, I only have internet and phone. I am not a heavy internet user. Would It work just fine for me for this purpose?

If I buy a Cisco DPC3010 on E-bay, and it was originally used with a different cable provider, is it easy or even possible to use it with Mediacom?

The modems KA9OUV are all ones that I see a lot of customers use with no issues. I am unable to recommend a particular one though. Let me know if you have any other questions or issues.
