Deco S4 or E4 as main unit in router configuration

Model: Deco S4  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Hello,

 

I picked up an E4 to go with my S4 3-Deco setup. I saw in the documentation that an E4 should be used higher in the network than an S4. The specs look identical except for the fact the LAN ports on the S4 are faster. Is there a reason the E4 is recommended to be used higher up the network? In my case, I currently use one of the S4s as the main router unit and am wondering if I should change this for the E4. The only I thing I can think is actually that the S4s are better satellites given their faster LAN ports.

 

Cheers,

 

Matt

Hi,

If the internet bandwidth is less than 100m/s, there would be no huge difference between E4 and S4;

And I do agree that S4s are better satellites given their faster LAN ports.

Thank you very much.
