Ignite WiFi Gateway Modem XB7 (Gen 2)

I'm Here A Lot

I've seen ref to a Gen 2 Ignite Gateway modem Easy Setup Guide – Ignite WiFi Gateway Modem (Gen 2) – XB7 | Rogers - Rogers and it looks like there are more ethernet ports based on the images provided but I would like to know if there is more to it than just the extra ports. A search of Rogers.com only returns the link above and nothing else. I'm interested to know does it support wifi 6 technology.

 

Thx.

Tim.

I think Rogers is reserving the XB6 and XB7 modems for The Ignite TV customers as those are required for that service. You are still getting gigabit internet service with the CODA modem.
Are you currently unhappy with your Wi-Fi speed or are you having other issues with your current modem?

That’s unfortunate...sometimes you just have to find the right rep to talk to. I have found that most are reasonable, but if not, you may need to escalate the call and ask to speak with someone at a higher level. Good luck!

I just got a brand new modem which states the Gen 2 ignite wifi its white in colour and supposedly its not even being market by Rogers.

Got wifi 6 speeds on my note 20!
Had issues with my current modem and the tech if I wanted to give it a try

Hi @RogersZia 

Do you have any updates on when this soft launch of the XB7 will be completed, and existing customers will be able to swap out their XB6 for this improved gateway modem? My family would really benefit from the improved Wi-Fi capability, especially during these work and study from home COVID days.
