why WiFi Router are more powerful than Modem WiFi Router?

why WiFi Router are more powerful than Modem WiFi Router ?
i cannot see any Modem WiFi Router that support up to AC5400

example from linksys site:

the most powerful Modem WiFi Router only support up to AC1900
https://www.linksys.com/us/p/P-CG7500/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

while the most powerful WiFi Router support up to AC5400
https://www.linksys.com/us/p/P-EA9500/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

why they don't make Modem WiFi Router powerful enough?

Sorry about the lack of replies; apparently none of us know. You might have better luck on a dedicated hardware forum.
Regards,
Hans

I don't think there is a technical answer to your question. This is a marketing decision for the manufacturers.

I think you will that any of the multi type of devices are not as powerful as the separate devices.
This has applied to many different kind of items, even back to the multi radio, tape and phonograph.

I guess that including the best possible functionality of all the separate parts in a multi-function device would make the price too high.

Also note that some OEM's are not good at producing all of the components of a multi unit.
