Alas, I have departed Korea and settled in Washington DC. My apartment building only allows Comcast cable internet. I packed my own router when I moved here, but to my suprise, Comcast leases out Modem/Router hybrids. The Xfinity modem doubles as a dual band router.
Meanwhile, I have a perfectly good Cisco Wireless N router collecting dust, but I am intrigued by the hybrid. Speedtest.net reveals pathetic results (compared to Korea) at 180.88 Mbps Download and 12.13 Mbps Upload. I am open to purchasing my own hybrid if its more effective and consumes less electricity, or is the xfinity device a superior deal leased at 10$ a month (I refuse to believe this.) What are good alternatives to this device?
