5.0 out of 5 stars Blazing speed and solid connection 23 Aug 2012
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My original review for this is retained below as some of the comments may be of interest since there are still likely to be relatively few devices which support the 802.11ac standard. However I have now got one the Linksys WUMC710 Wireless Universal Media Connector so can comment on the future proof features. And the result is that I can now happily give the Netgear 6300 a 5 star rating. I connected it to the Linksys media centre without any difficulty, using the buttons on each device to do so. I then connected the media centre to a Humax PVR and copied a file from that over the network. I had previously got miserable speeds but this was blazingly fast at around 10mbps. The media centre is fairly close to the Netgear so range isn't an issue. The connection to all the other wireless devices from the Netgear is rock solid. I have now turned off the wireless on the BT Home Hub, connected that to the Netgear router and let the Netgear do the wireless broadcast. So this is a great product.


This is an interesting product. It is at the cutting edge of wi-fi and one of the first on the market to use the new wi-fi standard of 802.11ac. This standard will enable transfers over wi-fi networks to be much quicker than they are now.

The first thing to observe is that this is "just" a router. It is now so commonplace for Internet Service Providers to supply a box which is actually a combined modem and router that there is probably an expectation that a box called a router would be one of those. It's not. If you want to be able to access the internet then you need to connect this to your modem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic performance, but at a price. 15 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying that unlike Philip in his review titled "An impossibly awful router", I did not have any installation issues at all. BOTH my units were easy to set up, although I did have to refer to some online documentation in order to get the second unit bridged to the first. They have also been running very well so far, although it is still early. I can only guess that he was very unlucky and got his routers from a bad batch. Now, on to my brief review:

Since there are currently no 802.11ac adapters available yet I decided to get two of these and use the second one as a wireless bridge. I was using a Netgear 2.4GHz 802.11n adapter and a Virgin Superhub and was getting around 4-5MB/s. The new setup with the 2 x R6300 is now giving me just over 20MB/s. This is a massive improvement and I'm well happy. The downside is the the high cost, which is currently over 300 for the pair. But that is the price that we early adopters pay, it will come down in a just a few months I'm sure.

As a standalone 802.11a/b/g/n router I can't say the performance was anything out of the ordinary, but when bridged together the performance is staggering. When 802.11ac adapters start to come out one will no longer need a second unit as a bridge, unless of course you wanted to connect your broadband modem to a wired LAN in another room.

I got this as I was fed up with poor performance and features of Virgin Superhub.

I use a network in a largish house with 13 devices (with mixture of 2.4GHz and 5GHz devices so had to have to access point) and wanted also to be able to access some files while out (via NAS). Using this device (combined with modem mode on virgin superhub) I have been able to quickly put together an excellent performing setup.

Routing/LAN functions are excellent, for low requirements users looks quite simple and does all the advanced features that I needed such as fixed IP assignments, port forwarding, reliable DDNS, QoS.
Wireless: performance is excellent on both bands and for g and n devices. Works well in throughout our house (and with n even into the garden). Also seems very effective in crowded areas.

Performance is excellent, compared to just using superhub speeds are better overall and it is much more responsive.

Obviously full speeds will not be available to most of us yet as there are very few devices using the ac standard but this is a very worthwhile router for anyone needing good features and performance and is ready for next generation of devices.

I did have a couple of issues that I was able to resolve with some trial and error. A couple of devices (Wii and mobile phones) could not connect to the wireless initially - I dropped the max speed (under Mode in wireless setup) to 600 and they were fine. Also, unlike some routers, when setting up MAC filtering on wireless it does not show MACs that are trying to connect but not allowed yet to be easily added. You can, however, try to connect then go to the logs and find the one that was refused and copy the MAC from there.

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely superb 9 Mar 2013
I originally purchased a Linksys EA6500 a few weeks ago, of the two its probably a slightly better looking model and is wall mounable. However, i havd huge problems with the gateway configuration - it routes traffic through cisco's own servers, which means if their servers are down, you cannot configure your wireless network. This seemed to be a stupendous flaw. Suffice to say i had almost 48 hours last week where their servers were down. i can initially configure my network through the (poor) cd installer but no further config is possible. I checked online and this wasn't the first outage (i cannot believe they don't have resilierncy to ensure continuous operation) I also had a few problems with signal dropout in the 2.4gig channel.

I ended up swapping it for the Netgear R6300. The user interface is much more easy on the eye and (albeit subjectively) the toolbars are much more logically laid out. It is easy to find your way around if you want to set static IPs or port forwarding etc.

The router contains 4 gigabit ports. De rigeur for the price range, but still good. Setup takes 2 minutes, all very straightforward even for novices. NO CD is required which is handy as these are less common. Install, plug in a cable and type an address into a browser.

Build quality is very good. i would have liked to see the stand allowing it to be laid flat, and slots for wall mounting, but these are pretty minor issues.

Performance is exceptional. I have a NAS, a few virtual servers on a dev box all wired up through the on board ports at full gig speeds, and a household full of various laptops, phones, tablets et al. Previously streaming full HD videos either from iPlayer or from the NAS drive was impossible from upstairs, now performance is excellent. The 2.
