XFI vs Admin tool question

I have internet services from Comcast, before getting my dual band modem I was only using admin tool (10.0.01) to manage my network, change password, exc. After I got this dual band wireless gateway I can access both admin tool and XFI, so which one is better to use? Is it OK to use both? Some features are unique to XFI and some can be done through the admin tool as well. I don't have TV services just internet so is XFI better than admin tool?

I use both and there are no issues doing that.

Got your PM. Please don't send unsolicited private messages to me or anyone on the forum. It is a violation of the guidelines.

 

With that said, I'll answer your question rather than just comment on my own experience as others here have...... Neither one is "better". "Better" is subjective to an individual's perception. Just use either one for the features / options that it offers which the other one doesn't.
