I very recently upgraded to the wonderful 1gig service (just over a week ago) and was surprised to learn that the modem on had 1gig ports I have a lovely 10gigabit setup through out my home including WiFi 6 AP and would like to get the most from them.
I understand there is now a new hub 5 out and how go about getting a swap to this hub I spoke to a fairly surly member of the retentions team to get info and was fobbed of being told he doesn’t really know anything about it and he is sure it’s invite only could I just confirm this?
Alternatively is there a team I can reach out to and maybe be placed on a waiting list etc I want to get the most out of my connection.
I don't think all Asus routers support WAN Balanced aggregation, I think they are possible LACP ~But if yours does.
Of course your starting point is to have the hub 4 in modem mode, (Sorry if being to obvious)
You need to 2 connect to two ports of the hub 4 using a balanced LAGG.
So you are not looking to to increase the overall available through aggregation, simply balancing the load over multiple interfaces. So with multiple parallel connections you will achieve the supplied speed upto 1.14. What you will not get is a single connection greater that 940Mb.
I spoke to a manager about the Hub 5 today and they advised that no one that is on Gig1 will be getting the hub 5 as a trial. Which leads me to believe that anyone on Gig 1 will not get a free upgrade. Not sure tho...
