It just came out so not many have it right now. It has wireless AX, supposed to have better range than it's predecessors, SON is also supposed to work better. The MoCA is 2.5 so if you use an extended you will get full speed over the coax. MoCA 2.5 can get a little over 2 gbps.

How does wireless performance compare to previous router (which did you have)?

If anyone has an android device, can you use an app called wifi analyzer to compare wifi coverage of G1100 to the 3100?

Does the latest ONT support Moca 2.5? If not, is this even beneficial :/?

The ONT does not support 2.5, so you still need ethernet at the router. It is beneficial because the old extender could only do around 400 mbps on the coax. Now with the new router and extender the call communicate at almost 2.5 gbps over the coax.
