Asus. Those Arris are not so good, firmware-wise

The arris is a gateway and the Asus is just a router...AFAIK.??

In terms of wireless..id say the Asus, as the all in one units arent as good.

That particular Arris model is a multipurpose: modem, VOIP, router, etc.

The Asus is just a router using N channel.
So, it is like comparing apple to oranges.

I think it depends on what you mean by better. If better is for use as a cable modem, the ASUS won't do anything. If better is taking up less space, the Arris is better. If better is faster wifi or wired network speeds, the Arris is better.

In almost every speed comparison, that Arris should smoke that Asus.

The arris has 5ghz with 3x3 antennas. It has gigabit LAN as well, AC1750

The Asus is pretty old and low end. 2.4ghz only, 100mbps wired ethernet, N300.

A separate unit like the Asus will likely offer more configuration options, and I would prefer a separate components, I run a separate cable modem, router, wireless access point. However, I don't think Arris (Motorola Mobility) is a bad brand at all, I wouldn't hesitate to use an Arris/Motorola cable modem.

+1 smile

Cable company just dropped off a new D3.1 Cable Modem (Arris) with 2 & 5 GHz wi-fi and it runs really well. Took a bit to get it configured, but once it was - it's very nice smile
