VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!!

Amazon Customer "blondie", Amazon
2 October 2014
  • Summary: This router does not do what it claims to do. I have a small hotel which is probably equivalent to the size of a large house (which is what this item claims to cover). I am having the same complaints as I did when I had a smaller router from Netgear. I have now spent more that I should have had to supply my guests with Wifi. I am very disappointed. I have tried all kinds of things to get this to work properly to no avail. And now I can't return it!!!

  • Summary: I spent two hours with technical support (internet provider tech) trying to get this router to work on my system - with no success at all. I was advised to return it. I would like to speak with someone at NETGEAR about compatibility with the modem and other equipment I have, so that I can figure out if the router is defective, or simply not compatible with the modem provided by the internet provider.

multiple problems with normal features.

  • Summary: I am writing this review after contacting Netgear multiple times. I have a closed case for a problem with UPnP that I allowed to close because I was not willing to "test" their beta firmware after already testing 3 other versions of firmware with the same results. I have now opened another support ticket with that problem still happening, as well as some others.

R6300v2 Problem

Amanda, Amazon
28 March 2014
  • Summary: I have had this router (R6300v2) for about a month and started having problems after about two weeks. Even with the latest firmware, I have to keep restarting the router once every one to two hours. Connection speeds in 5GHz 802.11ac to my Macbook Pro Retina (which supports up to 1300Mbps) decrease significantly even when the router and computer are stationary (15 feet line-of-sight apart) and there are no other 5GHz routers in range of my laptop.

  • Summary: I bought this router roughly a year and a half ago, during that time it put out great speeds, everything was as expected. A couple days ago I had to restart the internet connection however, I pressed the devices default power off button located in the back and then turned it back on. I was met with a flashing green led where the power light is (commonly referred to as the green light of death by thousands of people who bought this product on the internet).

Not worth the money.

  • Excerpt: When I hooked up this wifi-router I had high expectations, they were quickly dashed. I had my cable company increase my speed, purchased a new cable modem and the Netgear ac1750. My son had no increase in range or speed over our old simple ,cheaper router. He plays League of Legends and was disappointed with the total expierence that was promised. I read several reviews and felt this was a good buy. The set up was easy and instructions were good.

Better Choices

Hammer, Staples
3 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Tried this router after having connection problems with netgear wdr4300. Many hours spent trying to configure it to no avail so tried the R6100 which worked well except the wired Ethernet ports are only 100mb/s. The staples specification displayed is incorrect. The USB port worked well with a printer attached and the connection was reliable. The R6100 is a decent router if you don't need high performance to wired server or an ISP.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed
  • Cons: Unreliable connection
