This is cemented by the huge improvements to the 2.4GHz 802.11n speeds, which had held it back in our minds, limiting speeds with existing devices. While it remains a humongous router, at least the market price has dropped from the initial full price of £200/US$200, bringing it closer to standard dual-band routers and making it a much more tempting purchase.

The R6300 is Netgear's first 802.11ac router and has quite dramatic styling, looking like a glossy black slab on its side but it's also very large for a router. A white illuminated logo graces the centre, with three unobtrusive status lights along the...

Five years ago, we didn't have homes with a dozen wireless nodes and the need to run HD video to multiple screens. Today we do. Our 802.11n networks, especially on the 2.4 GHz band, are swamped. Can 802.11ac save the day? We test six routers to find...

The R6300 is quite a beast of a router, and it certainly gives a promise of things to come. While we score it highly, we'd hold off on purchasing anything 802.11ac until client chips are more widespread — by then, there'll likely be something even...
