If you're paying the $7 rental price or if the rental is included in the promotion, then you'll get a Cisco DPC3825 or SMC D3GN depending on what the store has in stock. If you're paying $8 for the rental you'll get the Hitron.
I personally don't want to settle with the Cisco or SMC. That's my opinion. I wonder how the HiTron works for some people with various experiences....
If I were to get either the Cisco, SMC or HiTron and have my own router - I have to set up "bridge mode".
