The CGNM-2250 firmware is comparatively limited. It lacks many advanced features that gaming enthusiasts would like such as NAT management etc.

With one or two Wi-Fi users the Hitron CGNM-2250 works well but the unit comes up short fast when there are several users. The Ethernet ports make it easy to use a NAS box for backups.

Latency is relatively good with the CGNM-2250 with the Wi-Fi but the Ethernet is fastest for gaming.
