Netgear may have dug itself a gold mine when it created the R6300 router.
Sure, it'll cost $199.99 when it goes up for sale in the United States, in May, and probably just as many Euro whenever it gets to the old continent.
Nevertheless, the simple fact is that the item really does deliver on its promises: it is the fastest wireless router to date.
Not only does it communicate over two bands, but it can reach 450 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz and a massive 1,300 Mbps on the 5 GHz frequency.
Sure, obstacles and distance will have an impact, but the R6300 is still expected to be about three times faster than 802.11n routers, thanks to its support for 802.11ac.
Netgear installed the genie app on the router too (users can monitor and test networks via smartphones), plus MyMedia (streams video and photos, DLNA supported). Parental controls are part of the feature set too.
