3 out of 5 eggsFast, but unreliable

Pros: Fast when it works, lots of features in stock firmware, DD-WRT support, very good range and coverage.

Cons: Unstable, frequent issues with 5GHz, simple things like resetting to factory don't work as they should. Had to reboot frequently. Guest Network unable to separate from main network when using as AP.

Other Thoughts: I tried to use this as an access point for a few weeks, but eventually gave up and sent it back to Newegg. At first it seemed great. This one device could cover my entire 3-story, 4800sq ft home with very good signal strength on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. Stock firmware does allow 'access point' only setup, but when used as an AP, you cannot setup Guest network on a separate subnet. In other words, Guest will see your entire network and shared drives/folders.

So it worked well for a day or two, then I started to loose internet connection with my 5GHz devices. They showed signal and connection, but could not connect. I made sure the AP's IP was static in my main wired router, but that didn't have any affect. I tried several different configurations in the wireless settings (Reducing from 1300 speeds down to the 600 and 144 speed settings), but that didn't seem to help much. I would still loose connection with my 5GHz devices. I didn't feel like trying the Open source firmwares, so I sent it back. My older N-class devices were much more reliable, even if the speeds/range were not quite as good. I will wait for AC to mature more before buying another AC router/AP.

2 out of 5 eggsSad Experience - 2.4GHz failure

Pros: Not many. Reasonably good performer before the 2.4GHz band went belly up, but nothing exceptional. It's truly unfortunate that after all these years of wireless routers being on the market, it still seems as if they are all still a rap shoot. Getting a decent wireless router is a gamble. I had a truly solid Netgear WNDR 3700 that I gave to a client and replaced with the R6300v2. Big mistake. If you get lucky enough to get a solid wireless router - don't upgrade until it quits. The new router is likely to have issues you didn't anticipate. I've used these things since the days when wireless b was the new hot setup and the situation hasn't ever improved. If you're lucky, you get about 2 years before the problems start showing up. Oftentimes it's sooner. Ever wonder why you can't find a decent warranty or customer support? It's because they all know these things are unreliable.

Cons: Based on other feedbacks here, I sent an email to Netgear support. The reply to my email asked several detailed questions which I answered, describing all the steps I had taken to troubleshoot why the router's 2.4GHZ band was failing. I had an old Cisco router that I set up as a WAP to cover the 2.4GHZ traffic and left the R6300v2 online to handle 5GHz and act as the primary gateway router. This isn't my first wireless rodeo and it seems that Netgear support must be able to tell that I did everything needed to verify that indeed the loss of the 2.4GHz band was a hardware failure that was a flaw with the product. I sent the original email on 3/21/2014. Their representative replied on 3/25/14. I answered all his detailed questions on the same date. Over one week later, no reply. It's bad enough to realize that you've bought defective hardware, but it's even more frustrating to realize that their customer support can't be straight forward enough to admit the problem and either stand behind the product, or just apologize and say, "Sorry, you got crewed." Understand that I don't consider this experience to be unique to Netgear. I read a lot of the feedback reports here on Newegg and this seems to be an almost universal problem. Wireless routers have notoriously high failure rates and the manufacturers depend on the end user's lack of technical ability to make it seem like the problem is the user's lack of expertise rather than poorly built equipment.

Other Thoughts: I purchase a lot of hardware. I have 8 servers running in my basement and I have lost count of how many PC's, laptops, tablets, and phones are on my network. This is the one area in all my hardware purchasing that I never feel confident about. You can read all the reviews and feedback reports to try and make an informed purchase, but it's no help. Wireless router quality control is non-existent. They ALL fail eventually, and there's no predicting when. In most of my purchasing strategy I go high end and get very long use out of what I buy, thereby maximizing the bang for the buck. Wireless router is the one area of hardware purchase that you need to employ the reverse strategy as no matter how much you spend, the life expectancy is short and unpredictable. That's just the problems on the hardware side. The quality of the firmware is another matter altogether and a topic worthy of a separate diatribe. I've looked high and low trying to find what constitutes a good buying decision regarding wireless routers. No one seems to have an answer you can trust on this one.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Gary,

We can't apologize enough for the fact that you haven't yet received a response from your second email, and I want to look into this right away. To ensure that I am sending on the correct email, please send a quick email to amazon@netgear.com (with the same email you used originally) with a copy and paste of this review. I will ensure that it gets delivered to the proper engineer who will be in touch, and also investigate why you have not yet received a response.

We thank you for your patience and look forward to getting things working for you.

Regards,

NETGEAR Team

1 out of 5 eggsDowngrade

Pros: Its pretty.

Cons: Wont stay connected to wireless devices.
Cannot see or connect to other devices on network.

Other Thoughts: I had a Dlink DIR-655 and was dissatisfied with it due to firmware never being updated by Dlink. So I went with Netgear seeing they frequently updated software. But this device does not meet my expectations for functionality. I cant return it now that Ive had it over 30 days. I think I will reinstall the Dlink router anyway, at least it works right.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Ken,

We'd like to help. Can you tell us which firmware version is running on the R6300? Have you tried doing a reset of the router to see if this resolves the problem?

if you are still seeing issues, we'd love to help diagnose the problem or get you a warranty replacement if needed. You can reach us at newegg@netgear.com.

Regards,

NETGEAR Team

1 out of 5 eggsGood While it worked

Pros: -Fast
-Good Range
-pretty easy to set up
-Newegg RMA services

Cons: after working for three weeks, it started dropping the internet connection. All devices, both wired and wireless, stayed connected, but the router stoped recognizing the connection to the modem.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi thegeek,

It sounds like you may have already ordered a replacement. if so, can you confirm that things are working as normal? if you are continuing to see problems, we'll be happy to help. You can reach us at newegg@netgear.com.

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT Router!

Pros: Easy set up. Works GREAT!!

Cons: LED light for NETGEAR is kinda bright in the middle of the night. Some tape or shutting it off at night fixes that if you have it where you sleep and want total darkness.

Other Thoughts: I have 2 gaming consoles either streaming videos or gaming online(1 on Wifi and 1 hardwired), 2 computers with one of them gaming (1 on Wifi and 1 hardwired), 2 phones and a tablet streaming videos (all 3 Wifi) on this sucker with a 6 MB connection at the same time with no lag what-so-ever! I did this just to see if there would be any problems. None. Great Product.

2 out of 5 eggsanother failed netgear product

Pros: -looks
-ease of installation
-performance (before failure)

Cons: -hardware
-durability
-customer service
-warranty

Other Thoughts: It seems no AC router is working properly these days - and this one is no different. after trying linksys and a couple of other netgears (which both were riddled with problem from the get go) i decided to go for this one and paid the full 200$ for it - one would think such an investment will be solid...not at all.
I was quite happy with the router but after 4 month the 5 GHZ band failed - it was not recognized by any of my devices and if it was there was no connection - hardware fail...after a full day wasted talking to the overseas reps - i managed to get them to send me a replacement - initially they will want you to send the router (at your expense!!!) and after the receive it they will send you a refurb model (not even a new one!!) - i did get extremely annoyed by this policy and after taking it up to a supervisor they did upgrade me for free to their quicker service where the new one was sent before sending back the old one (all on their account) - this should be standard policy for an item that it defective within the warranty period.
Fast forward another 2 month and guess what - same issue happened yesterday - only this time one cannot call Netgear nor chat with them online about this since i don't have premium support which requires a paid subscription...in any case, i wasnt able to get a hold of a rep (luckily for him) and i had to go through email support...still waiting on it and i have very slim hopes this will be resolved in due time or at all.
Netgear should be ashamed of several things:
1) first the quality of their products - over the last 18 month i have given the chance to 4 different routers N750 / AC1650 / AC 1750 - they all failed miserably and it is on me for having given it another shot
2)second their unethical support service where they want to charge you for premium to be able to assist or when you have to actually send back defective items at your own expense - this baffles me and not sure how people accept this.

in any case, right now i am stuck with a half working router until i hear back from netgear via EMAIL.

Please consider customer service / warranty issues before buying a router.

Hi Amatot,

1 out of 5 eggsThink twice before buying Netgear

Pros: Quick WiFi, easy install, cool app...

Cons: Great until you wake up one day to a dead router with both power and internet amber LEDS. Found out this is a common problem with this product, Netgear fails to take any responsible with this issue leaving the customer with broken router after a year and 4 month ownership... Netgear support was pretty much useless since I had already tried every recommended troubleshooting option on their website...

Other Thoughts: I've had several routers and have always upgraded to the latest and greatest product on the market but i have never had a router completely, will never purchase Netgear again after their "we don't care attitude" from their customer service/support.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Antonio,

We'd like to help out. The first thing you can try is to restore the firmware, in the event that something has become corrupted:

http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/18989/~/router-power-led-blinks-slowly-and-router-no-longer-works

If that procedure doesn't help, please get in touch with us at newegg@netgear.com with the case numbers you received from support as well as the serial numbers of your router, and we'll be in touch.

Regards,

NETGEAR Team

5 out of 5 eggsVery good for P2P

Pros: Have not had to reboot since I owned it (power has been lost a few times due to weather).
Running an 8 port GB switch off this with no issues.
Bought to replace the wireless router\modem from TWC (after buying my own modem) and to future proof my Wireless network.

Cons: Stock firmware is adequate as I can set the router up as a like, would prefer DD-WRT but as long as it works I will not flash to DD-WRT

Other Thoughts: Do not have wireless N devices on my wireless network that support the insane speeds this thing can deliver but I get 130MB\s easy on my laptop.

5 out of 5 eggsIts fast!

Pros: Great connection speeds
Great range

Cons: Adapters are a bit pricey

Other Thoughts: Bought this thing to replace linksys wrt610n. I got it configured and tested by connecting two tablets, two phones, an xbox 360 streaming hd video from pc, and a second desktop streaming hd netflix using a netgear a6200 adapter. The xbox stream maxed out the speed graph in media center. The desktop reported solid 351 mb connection 45 feet away on opposite end of the house. This thing smokes my older linksys dual band n router.

5 out of 5 eggsworth it

Pros: Used as an access point for a 2wire modem/router (bad router with poor range by the way) and this v2 router is way faster and has at least 3 times the range even with 5ghz

Cons: No ability to independently limit guest access, not a deal breaker but would have been nice
