Has anyone tried the ASUS CMAX6000 with Gigablast? If so, how is it working?
No, I simply want to avoid paying the monthly rental fee.
I would suggest getting a separate modem and router. Not only does this give you more options for modem AND router, but gives you control of the router firmware. May cost a little more, but in the end, it's worth it IMO. If you MUST buy a modem router combo, get one with a 2.5Gbps port like the Arris G36 or the Motorola MG8725.
