I purchased the Motorola MG8725 AX6000 cable modem router as a replacement for the Netgear CAX80-100NAS AX6000. These two devices offer similar specifications. They both tout AX6000 Wi-Fi 6 connectivity and both have gigabit (1gbps) and multi-gigabit (2.5gbps) LAN ports.

I am a Comcast Xfinity customer who recently upgraded to the Extreme Pro 1200 plan and needed to upgrade my DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem to a DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem to take advantage of the speed in my new plan.

While the Netgear CAX80 suffers from wired connectivity problems, the Motorola MG8725 excelled. The CAX80 would randomly drop my wired connection from its 2.5GbE port from my PC ruining gaming experiences and downloads. This occurs only when using the 2.5GbE port on the cable modem and a 2.5GbE port on my PC. However, on Netgear's community page, many users complained of the same issue and suggest that disabling the Wi-Fi on the device would "fix" the issue; and it did. But that is crippling my $500 experience.

The MG8725 does not make me suffer from choosing fast Wi-Fi 6 or fast 2.5GbE connections. In short, it just works, as advertised. It also costs $100 less than that of Netgear's offering.

The set up was very easy and straight forward. The device has more customization options and I feel more in control of what my device can do according to my preferences. It's a great start to a new relationship between me and Motorola.

If you're looking for a device that can provide a strong, fast, wireless network while also allowing you to access above 1000mbps speeds through a wired connection, give this device a chance. From my experience, you won't be disappointed.

If you didn't think there could be a company that was harder to get support from than Comcast u just found it. Personally i'll never buy a Motororal product based solely how long i spent on the phone trying to get support. I don't think its to much of a stretch to say i don't think they really intend to answer the phone.-d-

I had to use a pin and do the rest in order to login to the router during setup. Otherwise installation was very straight forward. I had an older unit that was only getting less than half of speeds I was paying for. Now everything is running smooth. If I had a complaint is when there is an update I have to manually reset it for some of my streaming services to work.
