CGM4141 AC####?

What is the maximum theoretical Wi-Fi bandwidth (AC####) of the CGM4141?


Does the CGM4141 have faster Wi-Fi than an ARRIS SURFboard SBG8300 DOCSIS 3.1 / AC2350 router?

    Depends on the width you select for channels (20, 40, 80 MHz).  The router may have 3 streams but does your NIC?  Theory vs. real-world have completely different results.

    Manufacturer numbers don't dictate speed.  Real-world interference, overhead, distance, retransmits dictate speed.
