The XB6 AP/router/modem is a multi radioed system with Fast hardware and puts out A LOF OF POWER OVER the WIFi. They were designed in a rush and have very poor cooling and are very inefficient. These units are Leased from Comcast to Shaw (from what Shaw rep tells me)
Anyway these units are fire hazards.
Also Rogers calls their version the IGNITE.
Well, XB7 is not available in Vancouver yet and constantly running fan in XB6 is expected as per Shaw, so I'm afraid replacement will be the same.
I guess I'll start nagging them once they start XB7 rollout in Vancouver
