3 out of 5 eggsBuy a Spare

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 reason...?

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 getting the blinking light of death.

Other Thoughts: 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.
I've actually got one location that they paid close to $500 for a multi-hour battery backup device and it's still not proven to help one of these routers last longer.

I think if you get the blinking light of death you can send the thing back to Netgear and they can either repair it or sell it as a refurb. There seems to be a lot of these for sell as refurbs so, that must mean something.

1 out of 5 eggsGood when it works

Pros: Easy to install, fast when it's working, 5G is nice, great coverage

Cons: It ALWAYS drops the connection if it gets unplugged for a quick second or the power flickers. I have to go through this long process of changing the channels, resetting to factory settings, rebooting, releasing and renewing, restarting the modem and so forth. I knew it wasn't the modem because I plugged the device straight into it and it worked just fine, even better. It is ridiculous and it takes so much time to do this. This issue happened about 3 months after I got the router. I had a Netgear prior to this and we had minor issues. I thought possibly we had out grown it because of the HD streaming and multiple devices. Prior to that we had Belkin with NO issues, just needed to upgrade. I did not want to give up on Netgear, so I contacted the support and they gave me the run around with trouble shooting when I specifically told them all the trouble shooting I had done. It was a repetitive cycle. I asked for a replacement because it was still under warranty and all they could say was "lets try this and lets try that". It were things I had already done and repeated multiple times. It shouldn't take hours just for my router to reconnect to my devices. Waste of money.

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsVery poor wireless performance

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 download and 20.67 Mbps upload.
By connecting the EX6200 to my TWC wireless router. I got 110-120+ Mbps for download....
With a wire, I am able to have 200+ Mbps
I had the latest firmware, no QoS etc...
Something is wrong here.
I contacted the Netgear advanced specialists at newegg@netgear.com to have some help, but I am still waiting for an answer...
I'm gonna return this product.

2 out of 5 eggsStarted off promising.....then like others

Pros: Fast speeds initially, good range

Cons: Many issues after a couple months, inconsistent speeds even over Ethernet. Some devices disconnect/reconnect constantly. Cannot access router configuration page without doing a power reset first.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry that you are having in consistent speeds and random disconnects. Our support specialist will be glad to help figure out what is wrong.

Did the R6300 work fine for the first 2 months?

5 out of 5 eggsNetgear R6300v2 is very good

Pros: setting up: easy for me. Just a few minuts
signal : The situation is different than WNDR3400 ( 2.4G is stronger than 5G in distance)

5G signal is very strong. It is 100% from any place in my house even the router is located in basement.
2.4G signal is less powerful. However, it is still strong enough.

After one month running, there is no any issue found.

Cons: -- there are less status indicators: ( four only: power, internet, wireless, usb ). WNDR3400 has more ( power, internet, 2.4G_wireless, 5G_wireless, ethernet_port1, port2, port3, port4, usb ). It is much better.
-- the big "NETGEAR" logo is always on. No way to turn it off. Hope that in the new firmware release , they will add "turn off logo" option.
-- price is too high. Better sub 100$.

Other Thoughts: I have used netgear WNDR3400 (N600, 2.4G/5G dual band ) in last three years and love it very much , even now ( I installed dd-wrt open source fireware on it. I can use it as repeater/bridge now ). However, I found that WNDR3400 was not powerful enough for us any more, since we have 8-10 devices attached to it and very often three are vedio streaming. We need much more powerful router to replace it and decided to have a netgear again.


I ordered netgear R6300 ( "ITEM# 33-122-466" ) from newegg.ca and received the box next day.

This machine has 256M RAM, dual core 800M CPU and USB3. I knew it is R6300V2, not R6300 (v1).

One thing I don't like: it is made in vietnam, not China. All my eletronics are made in China. Not sure about product quality there.

1 out of 5 eggsontrac worst shipping company

Pros: This company ontrac is the worst shipping company ever!!!! do not use this company or any company that uses them.

Cons: ontrac is the worst shipping company ever, I'm amazed that a company as reputable as newegg is using such a service.

Other Thoughts: ontrac shipping company is useless, try calling them, emailing them and see what you get.....nothing a canned response five days after email was sent, 2 days after product was to be delivered, saying that they will look into it. I had a phone number listed for the delivery address but it was never called, just returned the package to sender for no reason other than sending it to the wrong city in the first place. I use newegg for the speed of service (I've had next day delivery for regular price or free almost every time I use them, until they started this marketplace service and now it is a lottery when anything will arrive

Manufacturer Response:

Hi ontrac,

We apologize for the shipping issues you experienced -- we encourage you to contact Newegg for assistance. We hope the R6300 will work out well for you and invite you to get in touch with us at newegg@netgear.com if you need further assistance!

Regards,

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Warranty

Pros: It was a good product while it worked.

Cons: It died on me after six months. I contacted manufacture, live chat, and they would not help me without giving them my phone number. Netgear did not believe me the router was dead, so they would have to test it before replacing it. In the mean time I can be without wi-fi in my house while waiting on them to fix their product. I bit the bullet on it. I ended up recycling the router and buying from their competition. I did not pay $180 for it to work six months and than die on me.

Other Thoughts: I am never going to buy another Netgear product again. It's not because it was a bad product, but because they make it so difficult to replace it when it breaks. They just have a really bad customer service.

Manufacturer Response:

We want to get your R6300 working properly-- when you get a chance please email us at newegg@netgear.com. Please provide a copy and paste of your review and any of the case numbers you received from support.

We look forward to working with you.

5 out of 5 eggsGood router

Pros: Great range. Easy to setup with the NETGEAR Genie application (updating the firmware to the latest version easy too). No signal drops in my case. I have 9 devices connected to this router. Iphone, HP Designjet 110 nr plotter, HP Officejet 4500, Blue Ray 3D player, 2 PC's and a laptop (connecting at 867 Mbps), external NAS box with two hardrives. No isues at all. I bought my new unit at $128 after an instant rebate.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: After doing a lot of research about signal drops I found out the changing the 2.4Ghz and 5.0Ghz wi-fi connections to channels 9 and 161 respectively did the trick for my wireless system making it interference and drop off free.
