Re: cm1200 and rax80 for xbox one x

The cm1200 has 4 ports on it. 

For the average user though, only 1 port is worth hooking up. 

here's why. 

ports 1-2 can be used for port aggregation. Which has had stability issues with most manufacturer's. Unless you have speeds >1gig, i'd avoid. 

ports 3-4 can only be used if your isp allows multiple public ip addresses. Most don't. Its rare to find. 

so the average consumer is only going to use port 1. 

which is why I usually recommend the cm1000 or cm1100 for most. 

are you going cm1200------->RAX-------xbox's?
