Sorry if this is a dumb question, I am looking at buy the Asus GT-AXE11000. I plan on using the Xfinity Xb7 as the modem in bridge mode. Since I get 1.2Gbps to my home I planned on using WAN link aggregation on with Wan port and Lan port 1. I want to save the 2.5Gb port for my desktop that has a 2.5gb Nic. When I looked up setting WAN Link aggregation, Asus says if you enable this it disables NAT and Firewall features, plus a list of other features I am buying this router for. Did I read this wrong or am I just going to have to use the 2.5Gb port for the Wan? Thanks everyone for your help.

If you use link aggregation you only will get a maximum of 1gbit speed for your device … it’s not bonding …
Is your modem equipped with a 2,5gbit port? (I don’t have knowledge of that modem)
