28 I currently have spectrum but am adding a Frontier second connection
29 to be sufficiently robust for work at home. Spectrum's up-bound
30 bandwidth is frequently challenged from Spectrum, as they are mostly a
31 cable company. Frontier has fiber to the home, in my town. What's the
32 exact make/model/part numbers?
33 Serial number?
35 I've got no problem throwing you some dollars, if I can use it in a
36 multi-homed (half-baked) config......
37 Can you set a static IP on the device ?
