With the router that came with my high speed internet service, I had been having sporadic coverage in most of my house including a "weak" signal on my internet enabled TV in the very next room. Streaming movies and even music was hit and miss. I considered getting a range extender but as we all know, the chain is only as strong as the weakest link. After reading several reviews and product specs, I narrowed my search to the 6200. I was a bit concerned about the setup, but it truly was as easy as NETGEAR claims. I was up and running, two minutes tops. Phones, tablets, and TVs were all connected with ease. Then came the range test. The TV went from "weak" to "STRONG" and I'm no longer tethered to the lower floor of my house while working from home. I maintained a consistent signal upstairs, downstairs, and outside. Lastly, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the USB ReadySHARE feature. Simply plug in your external media drive and have instant access to all of your office bound content on all of your other devices operating on your wireless network. Starting with this device before adding to my home network with other devices was definitely the right choice as a range extender is now nonessential. Awesome product.

I purchased this router to replace a wireless router that was several years old. I also have a Netgear Universal Range extender, WN3000RP, as we need to cover a rather large area. After installation I was having problems with three wireless devices, a desktop, tablet and phone. The desktop had trouble making a wireless connection, while the tablet and phone had trouble maintaining a connection. After trying to troubleshoot this on my own, I finally called Netgear's tech support number. After over 10 minutes of a hard sell for their extended warranty ($129 for an additional year!), I was finally forwarded to a tech who would help me. They also tried to sell me the extended warranty, but weren't quite as insistent as the first person. I ended up changing two settings at the routerlogin.net site. Once I explained my problem they knew exactly what needed to be done and it was fixed inside of 5 minutes, and the connections have been absolutely perfect since then for all devices, including the range extender. Just in case you have the same issues, here is what they instructed me to change: In the Advanced tab, under wireless setup, change the SSID channel from 'auto' to 11, and apply. Then in the WAN setup, change the MTU size from 1500 to 1400 and apply. Simple. It would have been much better to have more specific instructions from the beginning regarding these settings, but in the long run it was fixed rather quickly.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've been using home routers since I had cable broadband in 1996. I've used an old PC running Linux, Netgear, D-Link, Belkin, Linksys (several, including the venerable WRT54G), generic ones provided by the service provider such as 2Wire, even a small Asus pocket model when traveling (it can run in AP mode providing wireless in hotels that has wired only Internet). Over time I've come to look for various features in routers. This one is seriously feature rich.

If you're looking at this, you've probably already looked at the R6300, the big brother of this one. There are two main differences - the R6300 supports 3 simultaneous streams, and has 2 USB ports.

Having 3 simultaneous streams means that the total amount of wireless traffic at any one time can be higher. Note that unless your device (for example, notebook) has 3 antennas and can support 3 simultaneous streams as well, it will NOT be faster. Most consumer devices have only 1 or 2 antennas. Still, it is worth noting that the price premium is not large between these two models - about $20 the last time I checked. That's only slightly above 10% at the retail price.

Both models are very angular - there are no curves on this unit, all straight lines and flat surfaces. They're also physically rather large. The "NETGEAR" in the middle lights up fairly brightly, and it doesn't look like there's any way to turn it off. There are dimmer indicator lights along the bottom edge.

OK, now that we have that out of the way, let's take a look at the features of this router. I'm not going to cover every single feature, since you're better off reading the user manual if you want that information. I'll touch on what I feel is important with this router.

1. Gigabit ports for wired Ethernet.

I bought this router because my old router was too bogged down due to the amount of wireless devices my household has amassed over the years. A router is like a street. When there is only a couple of houses on a road, traffic is minimal. But add an apartment building, a shopping center, and a grocery store and the road will bog down because of all the traffic. My old router was like that street. The Netgear R 6200 is like making that small road into a major thoroughfare. It can handle the traffic and has the power to extend my wireless signal to my back yard.

Netgear just seems to know how to make devices. This is easy to set up, they even provide a password to the buyer. This takes so much guess work out of the purchase. You can take the device from the box, plug it in, and in a matter of seconds (you obviously need a computer connected to the router) you are doing the minor set up work. The router is designed to be wireless, but with this model a wired connection gives the user a 1gigabyte connection. Once the router is set up, connecting peripherals like an Apple TV or an iPad is very simple. All my devices were connected to my wireless network in a matter of seconds. I attribute this to solid product engineering. They know what dummies like me need to get my device set up.

Once all your devices are connected, the router becomes the forgotten linchpin of your computer network. It runs, gets you online, and you're not even thinking about the router. Routers are no glamorous devices, but they carry the load and keep you surfing or shopping. The router has security settings that keep people off your network. This router is sleek and a workhorse. If you are experiencing slow wireless traffic, a new router may be just what you need. If you are in the market for a new router are just getting into wireless networking, I strongly recommend the Netgear R 6200.
