@Slyguy the only problem with a switch on a single 1Gbps port is if you have service that exceeds this (1400ish down in our case) then two wired devices can’t concurrently utilize the entire bandwidth

For the record I understand this is an expensive edge case, but it’s the boat I’m in at the moment. We pay the ridiculous rate for a decent upload for working from home and video files are uploaded regularly.

This also makes me wonder what the WAN port speed is on the AX. Is it a 2.5Gbps?

I understand blackice. Not an issue for me, even with 2,000Mbps available here, I have dropped to a paltry 150Mbps connection because there's only a couple of people left in my house, down from 5 and I have this new hobby of not giving away my money to others, and instead putting it into crypto for phat gains. :p

Unless we are downloading games, even that is overkill, and game downloads are a 1-off most of the time. At our vacation home we have a silly little 50Mbps connecting, which is enough for streaming movies on a couple of devices. So we've learned as a measure of cost savings, to simply have less speed because much of it isn't allocated/utilized anyway.

I don't know of the LAN speed of the AX, nor do I have a way to test it unless I reconfigure my network a bit, and run an LTS.. I may have to inquire with Gryphon to gather that information in lieu of my testing it. I no longer work in IT/CySec/Network fields (thankfully) so I don't really have access to much in terms of testing, or much of a desire to do it.

As for bridging, that's an option, but not requirement. I simply prefer bridging ISP gear to superior secondary devices, and avoiding double NAT situations. But nobody is expected to do this. I'd follow their instructions/video/support in that respect.

My AX is hooked up, but I haven't tested it much yet other than to be somewhat blown away by the speed and signal strength. It's certainly much more potent than previous generation gryphons!

Yeah would love to see the new Gryphon and more techspecs. with more Ethernet Ports and a Thruput with all security features would be cool.

The Firewalla gold was my second choice but the taxes / vat in germany are harsh.

So I sadly went with Ubiquiti UDM-Pro - 3,5 Gbit/s thruput with IDS/IPS enabled and 8x Ethernet Ports and a few more things like Geo-Blocking, Controller for the APs and more to come...

Sincerely
Val.

I applaud this approach. I hope to one day reach a better balance of upload speed for our needs and cut the unnecessary bandwidth elsewhere. For the time being a couple services do allow surprisingly downloads, however it is completely unnecessary.
