4 out of 5 eggsNetgear R6300

Pros: Very simple setup, long range and has 2 USB ports. This router has a very wide range compared to most routers I've owned. At the price of $79.00 I couldn't pass up this deal.

Cons: Non yet however I have read numerous reviews that says it dies after a few months. powerfully this won't be the case.

Other Thoughts: Great price compared to most routers.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good

Pros: Has performed fast and pretty reliably. Has very good range compared to my previous E2500 especially at 5ghz. For some reason CNN videos now play on my Kindle Fire 8.9 but rarely with my previous router.

Cons: The Genie advanced settings a little finicky at times.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast speed when it works.

Cons: Doesn't work as expected. DO NOT BUY REFURBISHED ROUTERS. I tell this to people all the time but do I listen to myself, NO!!! I now have a $130 electrical paper weight!!! Just spend the extra money and get new with a full warranty. Net Gear doesn't offer any support besides email for broken (refurbished) products. I'm going back to D-Link!!!!

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsReview update

Pros: Great when works

Cons: After about 4 months in the router is crashing every few hours. Will have to spend money to have replaced since the warranty was only 90 days. Used Netgear for all my previous routers but moving on to different brand after my experience with this router.

Other Thoughts: I have emailed the newegg@netgear.com twice, as they asked in response to my earlier review. This was two days ago and no one has emailed back or tried to get in contact. So I don't really see any proof that Netgear is standing behind this product. And with an average rating of 3 eggs now it goes to show this router model is a lemon.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Anonymous,

3 out of 5 eggsWorks with tweaks.

Pros: - 802.11ac with improvements to 802.11n as well.
- GbE ports.
- Can afford the refurb., but not the retail price.
- USB ports.
- Good 2.4GHz range and speeds.
- DD-WRT support.

Cons: - Geanie. Netgear, redirecting to your web-site without permission is bad.
I will never run Netgear stock firmware for this reason alone.
- No LAN LEDs. Come on Netgear, remove that stupid logo LED and add real
LAN LEDs.
- It's big.
- Not mountable on anything.
- 5GHz was really weak - barely crossed the room. Not sure if this is a
problem with this unit, or with the entire line.

Other Thoughts: - Had to boost Tx Power on the 5GHz to get decent range.
- Haven't tried real ac adapters yet, only a/n ones.

4 out of 5 eggsExcited to see the ac standard progress...

Pros: - Nice price
- Good range
- Netgear Genie
- Reliable

It was easy to hookup. I purchased a AC standard adapter for my desktop upstairs and get between 480 and 665 Mbps. Plenty of speed for a wireless connection.

Cons: None so far. Not 5 stars because nothing is perfect.

5 out of 5 eggswireless gigabit on the cheap!

Pros: Price, easy set-up, fast, and bridge mode! I have two refurbs @ $90 :) and one purchased new at $200. :( Bridge mode comes in handy for the xbox 360's flaky wireless network connections. Range is fantastic! Beams from upstairs to downstairs opposite side of the house (about 45') and still maintains 700+mbps!

Cons: The DLNA server can be a #$%# sandwich. it doesn't update as you add media to external USB drive and the only fix is to delete the netgear folder that contains the metadata from a PC then reconnect it to the router and let the router re-recognize the files. HOWEVER, the router i purchased new has issues with some file names and corrupted the data files that included thumbnail pics for the media. This causes the router to stop adding media to its DLNA library when it reaches the corrupt files. browsing through the folders shows everything but using the DLNA server shows almost nothing. this is my gripe with this model. Deleting the DLNA folder does not resolve this issue. No big deal though as there are several work arounds.

Other Thoughts: No regrets with my purchases as I got a gigabit wired lan network through my house without having to string cables and for way cheaper too!

5 out of 5 eggsPretty good with a little help

Pros: The stock firmware isn't bad, but can be upgraded to either the lastest stock firmware or to DD-WRT (google it). DD-WRT gives you numerous extra features over stock; most important to many here is it will give you the ability to pump a higher transmit power, which will improve the range of the router.

Cons: This is a refurbished router. The three we have purchased didn't look quite new, but all three are performing like champions.

Other Thoughts: From what I've read, if you intend to use these as a wireless bridge, DD-WRT might not be the way to go as it limits the ethernet connections to 100mbps instead of gigabit. With that in mind, it's still plenty of bandwidth to have more than one 1080p streams running at the same time over the ac side of things.

1 out of 5 eggsVery Unreliable Router

Pros: When it works, it's great. Two WiFi nets at 2.4, and two at 5 GB/s. Great coverage in my house.

Cons: But, when the firmware gets corrupted, without warning, and for no apparent reason, it's a pain to bring back to life. By now, I have a copy of the firmware stored on my iMac, and the TFTP app at the ready, so it's a matter of resetting the IP address of my iMac manually and TFTP-ing the firmware to the Netgear. Takes about 20 minutes, and I'm back in business. But, the first time around, it was an absolute nightmare. I had to rig up another standby router to d/l the firmware, and I had to search around for a TFTP capability. Finally found one for my Win7 netbook, not having known about the TFTP shareware app for the Mac. Netgear's instructions for the Mac are incomplete--virtually worthless, just like their [non-]support. They offered an olive branch for my similar review elsewhere, but it was all smoke and mirrors. No follow-through at all. So, imagine driving a car that stops dead without warning, and you have to get out and change the solid state engine control module.

Other Thoughts: I just wish that there were some brand of high-performance router that is reliable and for which one can easily obtain competent support. I guess that Apple's Airport is the only such around,

Manufacturer Response:
