    I have an AX88U, and due to some COVID related delays during a move, had to have Comcast installed as my ISP. I'm 2 months into a 1yr deal with them.

    My "normal" ISP is Verizon FiOS, and they are finally doing their install today.

    Once FiOS is in, I'll have 2 WAN connections available to me - one from Comcast, one from VZ. On my AX88U, would I use the Dual WAN, or WAN Agg functionality? The VZ connection is ethernet straight from the ONT. The Comcast connection is off the LAN of my MB7621.

    thanks in advance.

    Sorry, this won't be helpful, but I would plea a Covid-19 hardship with Comcast to exit that deal unless you really need the redundancy.

    WAN link aggregation often requires that both WAN connections are from the same provider (preferably the same modem). I believe this is the case with your router so you will not be able to use it with your two internet feeds.
