@Mayoo  Comcast only rates the XB6 for speeds up to 1 Gigabit, so Rogers should upgrade your gateway to either an XB7 or XB8.  The newer gateways will allow you to connect with Wi-Fi 6 and provide a total of four Ethernet ports, including a 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port.

 

If you already have Cat 5e Ethernet cables, there is no need to upgrade those unless you have problems connecting.

New gateways will automatically download the latest firmware that is available.  After that, when a new firmware build becomes available, Rogers will perform a progressive staged rollout.  If no problems are reported by the first group of customers to receive it, it will be deployed in waves to the entire customer base.  At any given time, you will be running either the latest firmware or the next-to-latest with an update that is imminent.

 

The feature set on these gateways has not changed in any meaningful way in years.  If you think that you are missing features and configuration options, it's not because your firmware is old.

Also @-G-  One more question and sorry to bother you ! 

So i have set this modem in Bridge and using my router for DHCP. Is it true that the other three ports in the modem is now useless ? with XB6 i was still able to use the second port while in Bridge mode ..

All the ports are still active while in Bridge Mode but the problem is that only one connected device will be allowed to obtain a public IP address and have Internet connectivity.  Connecting any additional devices will lead to instability.

 

What other device did you want to connect?  Keep in mind that while in Bridge Mode, the LAN ports are directly exposed to the Internet and not protected by a firewall.

If you are using your own router and have your Ignite gateway in Bridge Mode, you can't connect connect the AP to your XB7; you will need to connect it to a LAN port on your router.

 

You can't connect a second router to your Ignite gateway either.  Rogers only allows you to obtain two public IP addresses; one is being used by your primary router and the other is being used by the gateway itself, because it still has internal services running on it even while it is in bridge mode.
