I guess this could be considered bragging rights.  But first, the rant. 

I recently upgraded my internet service plan with Comcast.  And as part of their xFi service, they insist you use their xFi modem/router.  Don't get me wrong, it's not a terribly bad piece of hardware for the average user.  It's small, decretive and fairly easy to use in general.   But Comcast really screwed up the configuration software, making it absolutely impossible to share any content that gets trapped behind the firewall.  You get no access to port forwarding settings.  So after 2 weeks of my calling for help and getting absolutely no where, I went out and got my own cable modem.  It's a Assis SurfBoard T25 Cable modem.  It has gigabit connectivity and telephone support.  But I still needed a router that can handle that kind of speed.  My old Netgear N600 can only handle 10/100 networking.  So after some extensive homework, I finally settled on the Asus AX5700 wifi router.  It has 10/100/1000 networking and is wifi 6+ compatible.  I hope this should last me for a while.  Anyway, the included image is the bragging part.

Edit: I noticed the link for the router I posted is for the quad core "U" version.  But mine is the dual core "S" version.  The link has been updated.

Dat be a very decent all over rig!  Good at video editing.  Good at gaming.  And good at generally anything.  But umm, they say that the CD / DVD / BD drives are going the way of the floppy drive.  Most newer cases don't have any external drive bays anymore.  So, I picked up a portable LG USB-C CD / DVD / BD writer/re-writer just so I can still work with any old disks I have laying around.  They are dirt cheap these days.

Last I checked over here they were not cheap, but maybe that's changed I'll have to check.

 That one is an eternal BR reader not writer. burns DVD's. I would be looking for a BR burner not just reader, but I'll get to looking soon, just haven't yet.

My bad.  But the fact still stands that you can get external optical drives for under $30.

Is this what you're looking for?  I got this one at Micro Center for $95 US a bit over a year ago.  And it does everything except light scribe.

 I think that model isn't available over here. I kept getting stuff about it being discontinued or will not be restocked. but something like that model would be more what I'm looking for.
