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. It only seems logical to extend the same score to this newer model, so why didn't we? Fair question, and the answer is because the R6300 ever-so-slightly misses the mark in just a few areas.
  • 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:

Netgear R6300 802.11ac router review

14 May 2013
  • Excerpt: At first glance it’s hard to tell the difference between the Netgear D6300 and R6300. They both have the same oversized chassis with glowy Netgear logo very similar firmware twin USB ports wired Gigabit Ethernet ports and support for 1300Mbps 802.11ac . But there are differences; most notably the R6300 doesn’t have an ADSL port and is therefore only really useful for fibre and cable users. But there are other subtle differences as well.

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 mounting options. For most things, the R6300 excels and does so well.

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.
  • Pros: Support of two wireless frequency ranges, Presence of traffic meter, High routing speeds, Support of IEEE 802.11ac standard draft, Ability to block unauthorized USB devices, Excellent data transmission speeds upon operation with PPTP, Support of IPv6, May be managed both via the web-interface and mobile applications, Excellent data transmission speeds in the wireless network segment
  • Cons: Absence of a time zone for Moscow, Inability to switch NAT off, Absence of encryption support for PPTP, High price

Netgear R6300 Dual Band Gigabit WiFi Router Review

8 February 2013
  • Conclusion: With high speed internet fast becoming the standard across not only the UK but most of the connected world, its great to see a new line of routers that can not only handle the high speed connections on a wired basis but also over wireless as well. The R6300 packs all the features we would expect to see from any modern router and some more on top.

NETGEAR R6300 Wireless Router 802.11ac Review

16 October 2012
  • Excerpt: About a decade ago it was reasonably normal for consumers to have one, maybe two PC per household. Often they would share the same internet connection and often the same wiring with more complex setup’s really being for advanced users. Since then as our devices have advanced at an incredible rate it isn’t uncommon to find each member of a family having a laptop, smartphone, tablet and maybe even a desktop PC.

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. However, the performance of the router drowns out it shortcomings. The GUI, also known as the "Netgear genie," is intuitive and extremely easy to use.
  • 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

Netgear R6300 802.11ac Wireless Router Review

Legit Reviews
24 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Netgear seems to have solved that problem by introducing their newest flagship router, the Netgear R6300 WiFi Router.  Besides the sleek physical features, this Netgear features the next-generation Wi-Fi standard also known as 802.11ac which as we have seen is a monster step beyond anything that you could hope to get under the older, legacy standard, 802.11n. When it comes to pricing the Netgear R6300 really isn’t that bad, coming in at $189.99 shipped .
