Dan Crowson, Amazon

  • Summary: This could be a good product but the web interface is flaky at best. I find that the web interface will crash often and some features just don't work at all (no way to setup times to turn wireless access on and off - the option is there but just isn't available).

Buy a Spare

Michael G., Newegg
20 November 2014
  • Summary: I could probably recommend people using these to try something else due to their poor reliability but, honestly it pays better when these device fail. And boy do these fail. I assume it's one of the reason that Netgear keeps selling them.
  • Pros: Setup is Easy. You can back up the configuration of the device while it works and reload onto a new device when this one fails. You would be amazed at how many times that function has proved worthwhile. Easy firmware updates. Remote access works pretty good. Better in the Safari browser for some ...
  • Cons: These aren't very trustworthy routers. For no apparent reason they will completely dump their configuration, basically reset themselves back to factory new. I support 8 locations, all of them using this router in their setup and only one of them has ever lasted more than a year and a half before ...

Easy install Router

Mafromkville, Staples

  • Excerpt: The Netgear AC 1750 Dual Band WiFi Gigabit Router R6300 seems to be working wonderful. This router was amazingly easy to install. I do wish that the instructions explained how the two connections work.

Very poor wireless performance

Jerome V., Newegg
9 October 2014
  • Pros: It works when you turn it on but don't expect high performance
  • Cons: Very low wireless bandwidth. I have TWC with 200 Mbps, I used this router with a EX6200. The link rate between the EX6200 and the R6300 V2 was at 866 Mbps, with a signal Strentgh of -38 dBm (same room, no walls, only the ex-6200 on the 5GHz) Guess what was my Speedtest.net result ? 15.12 Mbps dow...

Not Happy

Jeremy, Staples
13 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I am not overly impressed with the strength of signal. I was told that dual band would be stronger. I cannot get my printer to pick up the second band. I had a d-link n router that i feel was just as good. It just displeases me that I paid $170 and got nothing more that what I already had.

Awesome performance but no support.

ofigueroasr, Ebay
4 September 2014
  • Summary: Works great. Downfall is that a refurbished Netgear router isn't supported for changes/management.....not even through "Genie".
