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.

AC for All or NETGEAR R6300

30 March 2013
  • Summary: Generally, we are quite glad about NETGEAR R6300 wireless router we have tested. Support of the cutting-edge IEEE 802.11ac standard draft accounts for a substantial increase in data transmission speeds within the wireless segment; now they amount to never-before-seen half a gigabit per second.

Expert Review

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

NETGEAR R6300 Gigabit Wi-Fi Router

Benchmark Reviews
13 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
