Default the lesser spotted Gigabit Ethernet port ?

I'm waiting for a router to come out with no Ethernet ports at all.

Has never bothered me. The router I use isn't even wireless. I use one
wired connection into the main gigabit switches (with a firewall box in
between, as it happens). I do have wireless APs hung off the gigfabit
network. So the only thing that's on the 100Mb/s connection is the VDSL
link - which is much slower than that.

I have the Sky Q router for my sins, it's not the best by any stretch of
the imagination, but it works. Only real drawbacks are no easy wall
mounting fixings and only 2 Ethernet ports, but at least both are
Gigabit. Only use one of them to link to the main switch in the rack
anyway, and all I use wireless for is the occasional checking of email
on the phone if there aren't any PC's switched on.
