Cable Modem died - which one should I buy?

Answered
My cable modem CG3100D-2 has died. It was running in bridge mode as I have an asus router. Telstra have told me to go to the Telstra shop and buy a new one.
What do I replace it with? I don’t need any of the fancy wifi stuff so not sure what to buy and don’t want to be talked into something I don’t need.
Thanks

Basically only the netgear 450 cable adapter is sold these days. Its essentially a cable modem in bridge mode where by you can any router to it.
