All models of range extender are mostly universal that can work with any wireless gateway including this Arris Surfboard SBG7580.

However, if you would like to start from the ground up you may consider a DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem such as SUrfboard SBG6190 or the newest Netgear 32/8 CM700 Docsis 3 cable modem plus home wifi system such as new Orbi three band wifi system by Netgear, or you also consider Amplifi HD home wifi system.

Wifi

With the built-in fastest modem, unfortunately the wifi module is not lifted to the upper level such as based on wireless AC1900 at least like those competing products C7000 and CG7500. However, if you compare the prices Surfboard SBG7580 is still more economical than Linksys.

All other features look like the same including the number of Ethernet ports. However, Linksys offers only one gigabit Ethernet LAN port and too sad no USB port is available for storage or printer sharing.
