I no longer own the router. I am currently using R8000 which suits my needs.
Recently purchased a few latest AC routers specifically Asus RT-AC68U, Linksys EA6900, Dlink DIR-868L, Netgear R7000 and ended up going back to R6300V2. None offered more range or performance of R6300V2 despite having external antennas. While most of these new high end routers had some additional features, some of them had really unstable firmware, especially RT-AC68U & EA6900. Netgear R7000 is probably the best of the bunch and I would've kept it if I didn't have R6300V2 already. It doesn't really bring more range or performance either and it barely has any new features especially for average user, but at least Netgear has more interest in keeping it up to date with frequent firmware updates.
Bought R6300v2 to see if there is any difference. V2 now comes with dual core processor 800Mhz, 256MB of RAM and USB 3.0, it is also twice as small and comes with smaller power supply. All nice upgrades, but did it translate into better performance? In short, yes. For regular users, they may not notice the difference, but if you have gazillion of gadgets that use WiFi especially HD streaming you will be pleased that it offers better performance. I don't have any hard numbers to back this up, but overall this upgrade is totally worth it for my busy wifi network.
My R6300 is now over a year old and it actually performs better then it did when it was initially released thanks to several firmware updates. I've tried latest AC offerings from Dlink & Asus and they just didn't offer as good range and reliability as R6300.Read more ›
Netgear agreed to send a new unit. I had different options for shipping from 'free', where I send my unit at my cost, and they send their new one, paid at about 18 dollars where they would send ground express, and then I sent mine with the shipping label included, or paid overnight for 30 dollars where I would get a new router the next day, and ship the router I have in back with the label.
I paid the 30 dollars as I needed the router for my home office. It came today. I plugged it in, it did not power on. I checked the old router one more time, and it did power on (blinking green power light) so I knew the power cord was ok. I called netgear. They made me hold the reset button, power down (even though there was no power) unplug, plug, unplug while holding the reset button; nothing worked.
Then they said they would send me another new router, but it wouldn't be there until Tuesday. I told them that they had not sent me a new router in the first place because the router they sent me did not even turn on; it was worse than the it was sent to replace. They said that they would send a refurbished model that was 'guaranteed like-new'. I asked if that was the same type they sent me today, and they said 'yes'. I told them I wanted a refund for my shipping and at first they said it was impossible.Read more ›
I was a previous Netgear die hard, I used them almost exclusively before the N standard. When Belkin brought out a Pre-N router I jumped to them and have really liked their products and have been there for a while. A new larger home now provides new challenges so I wanted an updated router. I started shopping the AC routers and poured over reviews and specs for a couple of days before jumping on the R6300 (the Belkin AC solution being generally panned using 2 streams instead of 3 for AC).
This is certainly a feature-rich router, the Genie function generally works well. The software for the desktop and mobile devices is decidedly "dumbed down", you need to use the web interface to control anything significant but it's nice and the web interface is well done. Other than a few hard locks Genie has successfully restored connections which, I'm afraid, it has had to do often. It was very easy to install, I find it pretty attractive and when it works it is indeed fast (blazing fast with the AC USB adapter) with a very nice range.
Let me preface my comments by saying I'm an IT professional and a decided nerd -- this is not my first rodeo setting up a router or troubleshooting bleeding edge gear. There was a perfectly functioning Belkin N600 Wireless Dual-Band N+ Router (Latest Generation) that played nicely with my DSL modem/router before I fell victim to faster speed and more powah! I have now torn my hair out for the past few days.Read more ›
