1) Price-to-Performance ratio
3) DD-WRT support, SHOULD I decide to use it.
Going with a manufacturer refurbished item usually receives a negative reaction from people, but I was banking (correctly after testing) that the "refurbish" was performed for the firmware, and not the hardware itself. Regardless, I purchased a 2-year warranty for it (after carefully reading the terms that applied to my state), and the entire purchase was under $105 per router.
I loaded the Netgear 1.7.x firmware onto one of the routers, and DD-WRT onto the other. (DD-WRT build provided by [...] with instructions via the ReadMe.txt file, or [...].
Both routers worked fine for 3 days under full use of Internal & external streaming, remote RDP sessions, FTP, gaming, ect across 5 tablets, 2 iPhones 2 laptops, 2 desktops, 1 Roku 3, and various guests devices.
The "electronics room" is located on the far north side of the house, while the master bedroom and garage are on the south side of the house. The range was a great improvement over my reliable Asus RT-N12B (which replaced my still operational WRT54G, which was disabled for testing purposes).
The R6300 with stock firmware was able to reach the garage with near full strength on the 2.4GHz spectrum (channel 1) and with decent strength on the 5GHZ spectrum (auto config). The master bedroom saw a loss of signal strength, but not a loss of signal quality, with the very rare buffering of HD YouTube streams.
The R6300 with DD-WRT loaded performed much better once I increased the transmission power on both spectrum's to 500mW. Two houses down on both the north and south sides of the house, I was still receiving a 2.4GHz signal, albeit weak, and with buffering. Needless to say, I installed DD-WRT onto the second one as well and put it through tests as well before being satisfied. that it was fit for my client.
DynDNS works on both reliably. I like the feedback from the DD-WRT interface. The bandwith monitoring and access controls are excellent, but could use more documentation that would be easily accessible via a direct link to a wiki from the firmware (my own personal gripe to help simplify the complexity of DD-WRT).
FYI, if the DD-WRT interface looks intimidating to you, don't be afraid of it. 90% of it the average household will never use or need, but the platform is stable, and the wireless options are there for you should you want to increase your transmission power. The general public can just load DD-WRT base, then the update (both from the site linked above), set the router name and password, set the wifi name and WPA2 Personal password for both the 2.4GHz and the 5GHz signals, and walk away. If you still don't like DD-WRT, you can easily return the firmware back to NetGear's stock by loading the specific firmware in the firmware upgrade page.
All-in-all, a great buy. Get this if you are upgrading your router.
First of all set up was a nightmare, looking back this should have been my first clue that I had made a horrible horrible mistake. Upon installation the router refused to create a stable wifi network so I could not even set up the network wirelessly. I ended up having to hard wire my lap top to the router just to set it up. After that I double checked and update to the latest and greatest firmware things seemed ok...
Boy was I wrong over the next 24 hours the connection would randomly drop and refuse to reconnect. The only solution was to physically hard reset the router by completely unplugging it. This continued for a about a week and never stabilized. I reached out to netgear support (which you can only do via email for refurb products, this is just wonderful) Over the course of 12 days we try everything from checking firmware, hard resetting, connecting devices through WPS. Completely dismantling my network and starting from scratch! Nothing fixes it, it seems like it happens almost hourly. The connection to a device will drop and it will refuse to connect to any of them without a hard reset. I have tested 2 other significantly older routers one probably close to 8 years old and used them temporarily for 2-3 days at a time and have not had any of the same connectivity this router was experiencing. The ISP provider is top notch as is my modem (Motorola SurfBoard SB6141 ) This router is simply a piece of junk. Deal fishers answer to my request for a return? "Please place a pin into the small reset hole and factory reset the device (While plugged in)"
Please do not make the same mistake I made. Spend the money on a good, proven router. Otherwise you will be out $90 and be left with an ugly netgear paperweight.
I should also note, this router does not have true beam forming as listed in the features here and on Netgears website. The range for a router with these specs is a joke and is no better than my 4 year old single channel 802N Dlink router.
Also, the range is pretty good, I can get a decent access a floor below and above mine and almost everywhere in my thousand sqr feet house even though this guy is hooked up in a corner. The refurbished device has been working flawlessly and without any issues. It even handled a electric surge without getting fried. It was a bummer that this is a R6300v1 and not a R6300v2. I feel that should have been made visible but other than that I think this was a good buy and worked flawlessly.
It was also nice of netgear to send me an email with what to do if it doesn't work out of the box. There was very little in packaging which I liked. The setup was easy and its been a blessing.
I'm not sure if getting the v2 as its current price ($154) is worth it but this one surely was. I don't know if I just lucked out at getting a working piece but its been working great for me. I highly recommend it and also would say getting the free netgear genie software/app and use it to control to device.
PS: You might need to change the wi-fi channel to get good speeds. also make sure you set up a password because commonsense.
