    Just… Holy… Crap!, October 19, 2013

    Smoker65 (San Jose, US, Canada) –

    My Experience: 20 years in the IT industry as a Systems Administrator. I have worked for the largest companies on the planet (IBM, HP, Intel) and then did 10 years in the start-up world. I know how to put a network together. I know what works and I know when it doesn’t.

    Like a lot of the reviewers here, most of us seem to be coming from either older routers or replacing Asus routers (at an alarming rate I might add from what I have been reading.)

    Like a lot of you, I am ALSO replacing an ASUS Router I have had for about a year now. It’s not that I wasn’t okay with the Asus router I just needed more from the router!

    I live on the East Coast and I have a tri-tiered house and getting a signal to the basement has been a challenge. I ended up having to put in a powerline Network (el-sucko when it comes to speed) and wanted to improve that throughput several times over. I also have, at times 3 kids who LOVE (and I mean LOVE) videos and online gaming over a wireless connection. I needed a router that could keep up and going from a single core CPU router to a dual core with TWICE the throughput sounded like what I needed as my house has the following (all talking to my router):

    – 4 Roku’s (HD)
    – 4-6 phones
    – 6 tablets
    – 4 DVR’s
    – 4 TV’s (wireless and LAN)
    – 4 Blu Ray players (firmware updates)
    – 2 Surround Sound systems (firmware updates)
    – 2 gaming systems (if you have teenagers, you have gaming systems): 1 – XBOX 360 and One PS3. Both wirless connections.
    – 3-4 laptops (depends on which kids happen to be home)
    – 1 Desktop machine (mine, multiple NIC’s and active connections)
    … and I believe a Partridge in a pear tree (up in the attic!)

    Bottom line… I have a hell of a lot of things that have to talk to the router who are constantly chewing data. I needed more and I needed more fast!

    For me to purchase a new Netgear router took A LOT! I have been VERY disappointed with Netgears offerings as of late as prior to my Asus router purchase I had Netgears ‘other’ TOTL router, the R6250 Smart WiFi Router. That router was so bad, I had to take it back to the store once AND had to return the router to Netgear once (so x2 total) because it kept dropping connections and rebooting… all on its own. I had (up until that point) never had a router perform that bad. It blew…BIG TIME!

    That said, it looks like Netgear has FINALLY listened to me! I wanted router that had a dual core processor and could cover my ENTIRE house or at least “talk” to my access point consistently without ‘losing the connection’ every time the wind blew.

    I do want to say upfront, I did look at the new Asus “super router” which also sports a dual core processor but I read a few reviews over on Newegg and it just doesn’t seem like it’s as good as what Netgear is offering (I know… mind blown also!) – […] – so I decided to give this spaceship a try.

    I bought this from my local Best Buy store as if it sucked I wanted to be able to take it back and not have to mess with the shipping.

    Like a lot of people state here this router is twice the size of any router out there (but looks really cool!). I honestly like it better since the cooling of the router seems to be much better especially when we’re cranking multiple video streams to multiple devices throughout my house. I can also tell you that after getting it hooked up and set up on the ‘inter-tubes’ I’ve noticed that even my wired LAN speed seems to be much smoother (not necessarily faster but smoother) than it was on my top-tier Asus router.

    Setup of this device was ridiculously easy. Actually easier than most other routers that I’ve set up over the years. I changed a IP addressing range and subnet, change the password, plug it in, and off I went.

    So far this has been an absolute pleasure to work with! That said I’ll see how it is in a couple of weeks but the smoothness of this router and the wireless speed I now get throughout the house is better than anything I’d had before.

    I’m not getting rid of my Asus router just yet. What I’m going to do is actually use it as an AP point in the basement after purchasing some very large antenna extenders so that I can get rid of the powerline adapter that I have down there. I believe any kind of wireless connection is going to be 10 times faster than the powerline adapter that I have down there right now.

    The only word of caution I have for Netgear is don’t screw up the firmware updates! Netgear has a tendency of putting out updates that actually cause the router to become unstable over a period of time. I just want any Netgear folks who happen to be reading this review to ‘take note’ of that. You put out a really nice product, probably the best product you have put out in several years… Don’t screw it up!

    Again, if you’re looking…

    Solid Router, October 17, 2015
    By 

    I paid full price ($399) for this router, no NETGEAR friends and family program, or whatever…

    At the time of writing this, I’ve had it installed for 3 days.

    I LOVE this router. I switched over from the latest Apple AirPort Extreme (the tall one), and every single one of my networking issues has gone away! I’m not an expert on networking, but I know my way around, and I could not get my Apple network to run stably.

    This router has a bunch of really useful features. The most useful, to me, are the antenna beam forming, and the Smart Connect features, which sort out the different types of wireless connections to ensure the best connection for each device, and send the most signal possible towards your device (as opposed to omnidirectional signal, sort of…).

    I have amazingly quick wifi speeds now, and I’m finally able to use the full bandwidth of my internet connection I’m paying for. I currently pay for 200dn/20up, and I usually got around 70dn/15up on a good day with the AirPort. All I did was change out the router, and I’m now clocking 235dn/24up at peak use times.

    Couldn’t be happier. You get what you pay for!

    Other things I like – this guy has 6 LAN ports plus a WAN port. That’s 2 – 3 more ports than any other standard consumer level router. Also like the fact that 2 of the ports can link together to double the available bandwidth. Awesome for a heavily used NAS server, etc… Last little thing – it has holes to mount it on the wall. Why is this so difficult for manufacturers to include? It’s just 2 little changes in the plastic mold – no extra parts, yet so incredibly useful. Thankfully, NETGEAR knows what’s up. It’s the little things…

    Setup is easy, firmware interface is intuitive. All around awesome.

    Netgear X6 vs. D-Link AC3200 vs. Asus Rt-AC3200, February 28, 2015
    By 
    D. Stines
    (REAL NAME)
      

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I have tried all 3 of these routers. I have had more time to play with the Netgear X6 and Asus Rt-AC3200. My internet is through Comcast. I get about 127 Mbps down and 12 up. So far I find they are all pretty much ok. I feel like if you drop $300 on a router it should be amazing. I know you will find people that cry and say expect bugs for new technology and I should be hung for saying this. Yes I do expect some but for flag ship routers I expect them to be squashed very quickly. So far they all have been coming out slow. And by the way I am coming from an old Netgear R6300.

    RANGE
    So far range is not that impressive of any of the three. I expected more. I do get a signal in all of my house and outside but I did previously. The signal in the garage is pretty weak which is only 30-40 feet from the router. I would have to say Asus had the weakest not by much and the D-link and X6 are about the same.

    DESIGN
    I know this is personal preference but I prefer the Asus, followed by the D-link and then the X6. The D-link does seem like the nicest quality. If it were black it would probably win in my book, I keep it in my living room and it is bright red. The X6 seems like cheap plastic and the antennas are very cheap looking.

    SMART CONNECT
    So far the smart connect works the best with the D-Link. It hasn’t dropped connections on me so far. I just don’t understand why at times it puts some of my AC devices on the 2.4 Ghz band. I find with the Asus that is its biggest flaw. The smart connect is terrible and drops constanty. I got really tired of my 6 year old bringing me his tablet multiple times a day telling me “The internet is broken again”. It disconnected after some devices went to sleep and after about 10 seconds being awake they would reconnect (wifi is set to never turn off even during sleep). The Dlink and Asus have one SSID for the 3 bands. The X6 has two SSID’s. One for 2.4 Ghz and one for 5 Ghz.

    SPEED
    Besides usage I tested the speed using speedtest.net. I do find the D-Link to be on the slower side. It is hit and miss. I might get half my download speed. Other times I get all of it. I always get full speed with the Asus and X6. But besides using the speed test I have no problems with any of them being slow. Unless you use QOS…

    QOS
    This is important to me because I have about 12 devices hooked up at the same time. Sometimes more sometimes less. Tablets, phones, Chromecasts, a Nexus Player, Tv, Xbox. You name it. The QOS winner hands down is Asus. You can assign priorities to each device and it works well. The X6 has a couple boxes to check to enable QOS. D-links is terrible. I have tried it. It cut my download speeds down 40 Mbps on every device. Even the one assigned as the highest priority.

    UI
    Each one has their own user interface. D-link definitely has the worst one. There is not much to customize or change. It is by far pretty much worthless. The Asus and Netgear are both pretty good. I personally like the way the Asus one is set up better and hands down their QOS setup. I also like Netgear and Asus traffic meters better. Asus has the best one of these also. You can see by device % of what data was used for on each device. Handy.

    Overall I have to say they are all very good routers. Amazing $300 routers? Hell no. If Asus would get off their butts and fix the dropping connection problem I would own this hands down. But its not worth a $300 gamble. As of right now I’m still torn between the D-Link and the X6 being the best. I will attach a couple photos of a D-link and X6. I am sorry but I returned the Asus before I took a picture. Size wise it is about the same. Probably slightly smaller than the D-Link.
