Summary: I have had nothing but trouble since I bought this...it comes with all sorts of garbage that I can't get rid of! When I called customer service they want to charge me to remove SushiLeads an app that is constantly popping up when I am on my computer!
Summary: This router did not work properly out of the box. For some reason, it did not communicate with either computer. I have never had issues with Netgear in the past. This one was obviously faulty out of the box. I returned it and bought a different brand.
Summary: Bout it in May 2014. Three laptops on Wi-Fi as well as a few phones in the household (though I rarely use mine on Wi-Fi), a PS3, and my PC hard-wired RJ45. Can't really complain, it does what I need it to do, never get signal drops or lag that I've noticed.
Pros: Has been a good, steady, reliable router for my home uses. Very easy to set up.
Cons: The 2.4 GHz band seems to work nicely, I can get a signal all the way out in the garage. The 5 GHz is a bit disappointing, I barely get a signal no more than 10 feet away from the router.

Cons: No matter what settings I try my laptop connects at 45Mbps even though it supports AC. If I take it to my local coffee shop it connects at 144Mbps and at work at 144Mbs. I tried moving my laptop next to the router and still connects at only 45Mbs. Very disappointed with netgear. If i was not past...
Summary: Hi, I have more than 7 years of expirene in radio testing projects. I had a lot background with cheap and very expensive WiFi APs and routers including enterprise types of Cisco and Meru. The r6100 has a short life. Looks like hardware has started to die (usually it happened after 3 year).
Pros: Easy setup. Small. Fast. Nice range.
Cons: Stay away from R6100. Mine AP R6100 is almost dead after 10 month of using. I have to reboot it every 1-8 hours, because of freezes. looks like it is on a HW side.
Summary: Very short and simple if you in the market for a reliable router this router is not for you, It has top notch specs but its one of those electronic devices that you will need some luck to run to a reliable unit.
