    I had a 25 series guy in my unit make it years back for practice and it has held up well over years. I am just wondering maybe I can get more out of it if I upgrade to something that is not military grade.

    Is the cable just being used to go between the modem to a router? Like a short patch cable basically or?

    I am only using it to hardwire my Xbox and another to my TV. I currently have Modem/router combined that TWC gave me but looking to buy one to replace it. I thought about getting one the Nighthawk combos.

    It’s highly unlikely that you’d get any difference from a cat6 cable (unless your cable has issues). Seeing as how your speeds are going way up/down, I think you have a service/hardware related issue. Short distance cat6 can do 10 gigabit, but it’s not normal to even find routers that can supply those speeds. Normally you’ll just find gigabit routers in stores/online. Even if you did get a router to support 10 gigabit speeds, you’re not sending internet traffic that fast to the Xbox etc.

    ‍♂️ My house is like less than 5 miles from the location where I did the test and I'm not anywhere close to those speeds
