Options...

1) purchase the 5031 ($100 new, 1 year warranty) from AT&T... 2.4 GHz b/g/n (4) 10/100 ports.

2) add IPTV service to acquire $7 per month LEASED 589, 2.4 GHz  b/g/n (4) 10/100/1000 ports.

3) purchase your own dual 2.4/5 Ghz b/g/n gigaport router and place behind the 3600 in DMZ mode.

Thanks.  Wouldn't option 3 still have the "10/100" bottleneck since the gigabit router would be connected to the 3600's "10/100" port?

Bottleneck.....

If all hardwired devices are placed on 3rd party giga router, your home network would be giga for device sharing. The connection to access internet would be 10/100 but as fastest speed currently available on a single pair installed 3600 is Max Turbo (24M), the 100 connection is at least 4 times faster than the speed tier. If you have Max (12M) then the connection is 8 times faster.

 

Gigaport would be of benefit to home network only as even the 589 gigaport RG would only have a 45M POWER internet speed availability unless FTTP Giga (currently 300M) as in Austin Texas and soon a few more select markets.
