XB7 Availability

Anyone know what the general availability of the XB7s are?  Support sent me an XB7 to replace my XB6. 

 

When the box came it was maked as an "XB7-Substituion" and had the same XB6 modem I currently have.  I have 5 802.11 AX clients so I was really looking forward to this device.

 

I've tried some WiFi AX routers from Netgear and Asus, but their stability and performance has proved to be beyond terrible in comparison to the XB6.  When the Netgear would work (which was rare, even on just 802.11AC mode) I'd get a solid 900/42 and around 4-5ms less latency.

Re: XB7 Availability

I'd Suggest sticking with the xb6, after thinking it was an upgrade they sent me the xb7, after getting it activated wired connection speeds were slower than the xb6 and the xb7 failed to connect to anything wirelessly, constantly dropping signal over and over even standing right in front of it. I hate to say it, but the XB7 is 100% a lemon of a gateway.
