Netgear has always been one of the top names in networking gear. The products they manufacture are reliable, affordable and effortless. Their new wireless-ac router is no exception. The R6300 is not only pleasing to the eye, but also the mind. The sleek exterior only masks the true power and innovation that this device exudes. With the rise of a new wireless standard, Netgear has made it their job to make upgrading seamless and painless. The router seems to take a very minimalistic approach to its appearance, but the interior is quite the opposite. The R6300 is the next step in the evolution of networking. Not only does it support the blazing fast speeds of wireless-ac, but it also accommodates older devices that utilize wireless-a/b/g/n. This router allows for seamless upgrading without having to sacrifice any time money. Once the device is installed, it only requires basic configuration to be operational. The R6300 has simultaneous dual band, which allows for devices on both the 5GHz band and the 2.4GHz band to communicate flawlessly. The user interface is simple and easy to navigate for those who wish to use the basic functions. It also allows more advanced users to change more complex settings with ease. Although gigabit Ethernet is nothing new, this may be the first device that allows for devices that are wired and wireless to communicate at relatively the same speeds. It is quite amazing how much faster wireless has become and this device is an example of that. With the speed of 802.11ac and the range of this router, this device is an essential part of any enthusiasts home.
