Excerpt: I’ve noticed a slight decrease in speeds when operating on the 2.4Ghz band, especially when my microwave is being used. With that being said, I would certainly suggest using the 5GHz band to avoid interference. This can be changed by entering routerlogin.net into your internet browser. I give it two thumbs up! It’s been about a year since I purchased it, and I’m very pleased overall. It’s by far the best one that I’ve used. I highly recommend it!
Summary: This is going to be a short review, I have a BT home hub 5 which was a nightmare to set up and keep dropping, after looking about at other modem's routers and using Netgear before I through I would give this a go and I'm happy with the results, I got it set up and running in 5 minutes no drop outs so far and I got an extra Mb/s of speed out of my broadband, oh almost forgot my broadband is ASDL
Summary: Bought this to replace a zoom modem/router,it seems to do the business not dropped the line once haven't tried the ac feature but the duel band works fine with talktalk using googles DNS server Theirs doesn't seem to work properly, a tad on the large size (like a picture frame) and a annoying NETGEAR Logo light on the front Ps You cant turn it off. also I would say its over priced although I got it at a discount price otherwise it does what it says on the can.
Summary: I bought the D6300 a week ago and I installed it in accordance with the installation manual that came with it. I had no problems and it worked very well from day 1. It is about a couple of seconds slower than the 15 year old direct connected modem router I replaced. Never the less it is a very good modem router transmitting signals through 5 brick walls and a kitchen. The only disappointment I had was the way it was constructed.
Pros: Good perfomer
Cons: poor looks; unprofessionally constructed; NetGear could do better !!.
Summary: Love my new Netgear Router, I have it all set up in our big old house with tick walls (had trouble with last few rotters). Put in the center next to the chimney on the second floor. All my devices got a single in every room in the house. Also got 2 hard drives USB 3TB for work and play. And these are working well, have password-ed them and have put in sections for every one to axes which I found simple to do.
Summary: Over the past 20yrs since first getting broadband I have changed my ADSL routers every 2-3 years, to stay current with the latest WiFi bands, ie. A, B, G, Pre-N, N etc. Invariably this has resulted in my chopping and changing from one manufacturer to another in the quest for the most stable and fastest 'real world' WiFi link.
Summary: Tried 2 of these which were returned to Amazon (well done Amazon !) Could not access the configuration GUI from 3 hard wired devices even though they would ping it successfully. Netgear genie is a real wizard - never appeared !! Even 3 hours with Netgear support couldn't get a result.
