Re: can i use attenautor for my xb6 moben

There’s really no need, first your modem is in spec, second if you use either it will knock your upstream out of spec(which is already borderline too high).

Re: can i use attenautor for my xb6 moben

Why do you feel you need one ? Even if you did, you should use a Forward Path Only one which would not affect the return path (upstream).
