I don't know what you are really looking for here, as far as cost is concerned, but I have two recommendations. My recommendation are based on me actually OWNING these things.
For the modem, Cisco DPC3008
. It is DOCIS 3, and FAST. I hit over 50Mb/sec on here regularly (even though I only pay for 35M!) - though Charter slows down the connections, I can tell you it will happily do the job. That modem is about $100, but well worth it.
For the router, I got tired of consumer grade junk needing to be replaced every year or so, and got a Netgear SRXN3205, and couldn't be happier. I have about a 450ft range with 20+ other access points in the immediate area, AND through multiple walls. It is expensive, but is also the ONLY brand of router shipping with a lifetime warranty.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"
