What are these definitions? What do they save?

 

If nothing else the N600 tag tells us that this is low-end device. N600 is an ageing and relatively slow wifi standard. I wonder what else on it is obsolete.

  • Five (5) 10/100/1000 (1 WAN and 4 LAN) Gigabit Ethernet ports

Re: Problem with wired connection RBR40

Try to find a modem only unit with out a built in router. You don't need a built in router if your going to use a external router like the Orbi.
