Netgear R6300 Wireless AC Dual Band Gigabit Router Review

17 April 2014
  • Summary: Netgear hit a homerun with its N900 router, which we previously awarded a perfect 5/5 (a score we don't hand out liberally), and the company's new R6300 is essentially the same wireless beast, but with 802.11ac baked in.
  • Pros: Solid Performance:, USB x 2:, Genie Dashboard:, Strong Signal:, Parental Controls and Scheduling:
  • Cons: Bulky Design:, Ahead of the Curve:, No USB 3.0:

Review: Netgear R6300 Router

1 May 2013
  • Conclusion: $200 isn’t cheap as far as routers ago. But if you must have the latest and greatest support for wireless protocols as well as a requirement for range, the R6300 is hard to beat. The only downsides we’d point a finger at currently are lack of AC hardware (not the router’s fault, really) and limited...

10 December 2012
  • Summary: The 802.11ac standard is here, primed and ready to blaze a trail over the air, so we’re certainly seeing more and more routers capable of it. NETGEAR’s R6300 is among the first routers with the 5G Wi-Fi standard, but is being first in line means it gets to be the fastest router today?
  • Pros: Great 5GHz performance, Dual-band, 802.11ac support, Easy to use
  • Cons: 2.4GHz output isn’t very good, Bulky design

Benchmark Reviews
16 October 2012
  • Conclusion: One of the elements where the R6300 falls short is from a design standpoint. Not only is it not very visually appealing, but its stature combined with the positioning of the majority of the ports it a bit of a disappointment. Also, it could have used a USB 3.0 port or two.
  • Pros: Signal Range, Signal strength & speed, Intuitive GUI, Ease of set up, Next generation Gigabit router, READYshare
  • Cons: Large design, limited placement options, Difficult to access most ports/buttons, Expensive price tag, USB 3.0 ports would have been nice

  • Conclusion: As the first router of a new generation, the Netgear R6300 can definitely be called a success. Granted, 1.3 gbps is still quite a way away, but there are clear performance gains compared to 802.11n.

Netgear R6300 WiFi Router 802.11ac Dual Band Gigabit

PC Magazine
5 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Although the Netgear R6300 supports the latest 802.11ac standard (in draft form); an odd design, and surprisingly underwhelming performance running in 11ac mode does not make this router one of Netgear's best.
  • Pros: Genie software provides easy setup and management. Supports draft 802.11ac. Dual USB ports. Very good performance in 2.4 GHz N-only mode. IPv6 support. Runs cool.
  • Cons: Bizarre design that limits placement. Performance not on par with other Netgear dual-bands. No USB 3.0.
