AX5400 Modem Requirements

I am considering this router but I'm confused as to whether or not I need a modem with a 2.5 Gbps ethernet port.  While shopping for cable modems, I see there are modems offering this and those that are not.

 

Thanks.

What does your current isp give you in speed?

600 Mbps.

That's all you will get so a 2.5 port would not get you anymore than 600Mbps.

I'm guessing you are US where I'm U.K. so I don't know all the various types available but I'm sure if you posted some a helpful person will help out.

I'm also bit confused as I'm not sure the router you are looking has 2.5 connection. What's the model you are looking at?

Re: AX5400 Modem Requirements

What router are you looking at? AX5400 is a speed. 

 

A 2.5g port is nice if you're isp is supporting >1 gig speeds. Or if you plan on upgrading in the future to those speeds. 

But if you have no intention of >1gig speeds, then there isn't much benefit to it. 

Current Setup: CM2000-> RBK750-> GS716v2-> RAXE500-> Pi-hole->

Ah, that's confusing.  I ended up getting the RAX50 but now I'm going to try out the Orbi RBK752.

 

Thanks.
