Was looking at the "Cox Certified Cable Modems" page and noticed a new entry for 2Gbps routers.
Are these routers sold or provided by Cox in any way? Or are they just examples of what could work?
Here is a decent review of the Asus ET12 for anyone interested. The main thing I got out of it is that you want to install ethernet for backhaul. 6Ghz is sketchy if not line of sight. Will Cox install ethernet for their fiber install like Verizon does?
I just noticed the review say it has 2 2.5Gbps ports while Cox says it has 2 10Gbps ports. I checked the specs and it says 2.5Gbps.
I'm assuming 2 different Ethernet standards: 10BASE vs. NBASE-T.
"N" = either 2.5G or 5G.
If a medium-sized company needs 10 Gbps...this WAN port would also be compatible with the 10BASE system. A 10 Gbps plan for a smaller company, however, could be too costly.
The NBASE-T.system is just a cheaper intermediary between the 1 and 10 Gbps speeds of the 10BASE system. One Gbps is not enough and 10 Gbps would be too much; therefore, an alliance created a 2.5 & 5 Gbps standard.
I think it's just a typo. Makes it look like the Asus is the better option. Over kill but still better.
Yeah...it's probably a typo because these seem to be residential as opposed to business. Besides, I can't find any reference or review to change the clock speed of a LAG port.
It is an overkill and I think Cox is just trying to keep up with the bigger providers. Cox, however, should think outside of its Cox Box and attract with tangible things, such as higher caps, 100 Mbps plan, better training for CS...hmm?...about all I can muster for now...free candy!
