Help Build Home WiFi Mesh For Cox Gigablast

I'm hoping for help. I'm upgrading to Cox Gigablast and want to install Orbi RBK853 WiFi 6 System for a wireless mesh. I've looked at the Cox website to see what modems are compatible with Gigablast, and the CM1200 Nighthawk is on the list. Are there connectivity/compatibility issues between the modem and router models noted? If seamlessly compatible, is the CM1200 modem a good choice for the Orbi router mesh noted above? My home network is used primarily for internet surfing, TV streaming, and gaming. We do not currently use voice activated devices.

 

I appreciate your feedback.

Please post about this over in the Orbi AX forum:

The CM1000, CM1100 or 1200 will be good modems.

 

Good Luck
