Summary: I bought a D6300, which as I understand is the modem-equipped version of the D6300 router. After a couple of months spent in vain to tame this poor beast, I put the D6300 in a closet and went back to the previous modem/router . Here is why: (A) D6300 configuration management is done via firmware, not software. This causes a number of complications , the largest of which is that Netgear Tech Support does not recommend you use the configurations backup/restore utility.
Probably works well if you use mainly wireless without multiple wired points.

Summary: I bought this router a few days ago - Feb 2015. It was really easy to set up but then the trouble started, it would not talk to my switches around the house, which I use to hardwire smart tv, desktop pc upstairs etc. The pc beside the router worked well at first but nothing else in the house which was hard wired did. The wireless was very good from the start.
Taken in by the publicity - in reality, poor signal strength

Summary: Totally agree with the anonymous comments posted 9th June 2013 and Mr Bastianelli 3 days later. I too had looked to replace an old Belkin unit, as signal strength was becoming a problem with 4 people in the house online with tablets and running a Smart TV. In reflection, this item has been more or less a complete waste of money.
Summary: Purchased to replace my ageing Belkin unit but found this units range to be inferior indeed have now disconnected and using a supplied Talk Talk unit which has proven to be better than both and not dropped out as yet after 2 weeks of high usage by many items in the home network.
