        Answer

        You can by disabling the bands you don't wish to use. Otherwise if you select Smart Connect you would only be broadcasting 2 SSID's. The 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz. With Smart Connect "enabled" it will broadcast both 5 GHz bands as one SSID even though there is the 5 GHz1 and 5 GHz2 bands. It will automatically switch between the two 5 GHz bands based on signal quality which is a great feature. The switching is flawless.

            Yes, it doesn't matter who your network provider is. All router's work with all network provider's.

              A router is a router is a router. Your question really only applies to the modem. Not sure why any router wouldn't work with any service.

                  Hi Steven, I am also a Charter Spectrum customer. What you are describing is a cable modem. Its job is to convert the signal between your home and the ISP network providing you internet access. It will have a coax cable from outside your home to it (may be via a wall jack). It will have another cable which will be the basis of your network and will connect to your Wifi router allowing your devices to access the internet via it either by a cable (Ethernet) wired connection or wirelessly via a wifi connection. You will need but devices to connect to the internet.

                  Answer

                  It will probably outperform your current router in both speed and range. However your internet MAXIMUM is as fast as the service your purchase from your ISP (Internet Service Provider). For example if you have a basic router and 50 Mbps service from your ISP, you might get about 30 Mbps and 3 bars of strength from your current setup. This router is capable of 1000+ Mbps so it has more capacity than you're purchasing through your ISP and you would see the MAXIMUM allowed by your ISP which is 50 Mbps. It is also a very strong router so the connection will probably jump to 4 or 5 bars. Honestly this router is probably overkill unless you're subscribing to 100+ Mbps service from your ISP. We have 1,000 Mbps service and this thing flies. I'm currently getting 100 Mbps on 2.4 Ghz and 400 Mbps on both 5 GHz bands, so between the 3 devices connected it's pumping out 900 Mbps and works flawlessly.
