A:AnswerIt is not a modem. You cannot take the Spectrum Cable wire and plug it into it. It is however compatible with the Spectrum Modem. (Pretty Much all routers are). My personal opinion, is the Spectrum Routers are trash. You could set Spectrums, Modem/ Router to Demilitarized zone and allow all traffic back and forth, then use this router as your network. This router blows away any of the ISP Provided routers. The network processing speed and Wireless management is orders of magnitude better then ISP Provided routers
A:AnswerNone really. I have 3 PC's, two Nintendo Switches, 1 Xbox One, 4 Smart TV's, 8 phones, all connected to AX86S and no lag or issues have come up. And im a typical user. Other than the price and release date, I'd still go for the AX86S just on price.
