List of authorized routers

I know that if you want to purchase your own modem you have to use one authorized by Spectrum but what about a router. Is there a list of authorized routers or can you use any router as long as you are using a Spectrum authorized modem.

    There is no list of authorized routers. The theory is that the modem connects directly to the Spectrum network while the router connects to the modem. This of course implies that the modem and router are separate devices. Think of it like the cable box. The cable box connects directly to the Spectrum network, while the TV connects to the cable box.. You would not expect there to be a list of authorized TV’s.
