  1. NetGear CM1100 is a good modem. Broadcom based and Zero issues with it. Just another suggestion. Also check with your ISP to see what they support for BYOM.
  2. Overall you'll be fine with what you have going. If your ISP is supporting the speeds and modem currently then keep it. Just know that they may require you to go with a newer model modem that supports more channels. As time goes one, older 4x4 or 8x4 modems will no longer be supported as ISPs will improve there systems for faster speeds that support higher channels, 24 and 32 and DOCSIS 3.1 is becoming the norm going forward. So for now, if your getting to spec speeds with the 7610, and your ISP lets you use it, then keep it going. Just keep in mind, any changes in the future may require a different modem capabilities.
  3. Then the 7620 would be supported if that model is on there list. Also the Arris 6183 is a good modem as well. Also a broadcom modem. Only if your wanting to increase your speeds. Again if your happy with what you have, then keep it. If you wanting to go with 200/10, then the 7620 or the 6183 will work just fine. I have the 6183 and a 7420 and they both work find on my 200/10 ISP service. However I have two games on my system and do lots of streaming so 200/10 is needed for my needs.
  4. Check with your ISP to see what they support as far as DOCSIS 3 or 3.1. The 7620 is NOT on the bad modems list and is Broadcom based. If the ISP will still allow the 7610 on there system at the supported speed, then keep it. However when you upgrade speeds, you'll probably need to upgrade your modem to 24 or 32 channel or DOCSIS 3.1 supporting modems at that point.
  5. Yes, you'll have better performances with 16x4 than with 8x4 channels. The 7620 specs: WAN throughput: 680 Mbps WAN throughput upstream: 143 Mbps 7610 specs: WAN throughput: 343 Mbps WAN throughput upstream: 143 Mbps Also as ISP upgrade and improve there services, 8x4 and 16x4 will become out dated and some ISP will mandate or require the use of better modems with 24 or 32 channel support. Keep this in mind. A good modem list can be reviewed here: https://badmodems.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=5
  6. You have to be patient. There not giving it out to everyone all at once. I signed up when the first announcement of it was made. I just got an email last week about it and with a link. There only sending it out to a certain amount. Be patient. Sign up and be patient:
  7. You say that new OS is coming to the XR500/700. Does this include the XR450 as well? Please don't forget about us 450 users. 🤔
  8. If 3rd party FW developers are doing anything, you'll need to check with them, i.e. DD-WRT or OpenWRT forums.
  9. What is the model# of your ISP modem? Modem Combo Units: Couple of options, 1. Configure the modem for transparent bridge mode. Then use the NG router in router mode. You'll need to contact the ISP for help and information in regards to the modem being bridged correctly. 2. If you can't bridge the modem, disable ALL wifi radios on the modem, configure the modems DMZ for the IP address the NG router gets from the modem.
  10. I keep seeing sniper kill cams that are not even on target and there getting the kills. Guns are way over powered over others. BO4 has got to be worse one of them all. BO3 wasn't this bad. Thought it had it' own issues.
  11. Ya BO4 in general is probably having issues like all the other games after launch time. Hopefully it will get better. Would be nice to see a FW update for the 450/500 as well. Still not liking BO4.
  12. I don't believe this is a router only issue, maybe in part some way however mostly a BO4 issue. When I hosted games, we got booted as well. I was using a different NG router and a non NG router as well. Saw disconnects across both different routers. Gaming last night was pretty good however, and didn't see any disconnects while gaming. Roommate was hosting our games on a non XR NG router.
  13. We played last nite and again we got disconnected a few times. We all using various different routers and modems and all experienced the same thing. This is a BO4 issue. Not a router issue.
