Nighthawk RAX80 2 GIG internet with Single Port ModeM?


Nighthawk RAX80 2 GIG internet with Single Port ModeM?

Hi I was recently upgraded to 2 GiG internet by my ISP. The problem is my modem only has a single 2 Gig Port and not Dual wan ports to use with aggregation on the Nighthawk RAX80. Is there any way to connect this modem to my router to get the full 2 GIg? What are my options? Or will I need to buy a new router to be able to take advantage of my 2 Gig plan?


Looking forward to your replies.

You'll need something with a multi gig port on the WAN and LAN side to see 2Gb accross the wire.

Only NG that does that is the Orbi 960 series. 

NGs RS700 supports this as well coming out at the end of the month I think. 

This was annouced as well but it doesn't have multi gig LAN ports:



Or find you a modem that has dual WAN Ports that supports LAG.
