Today we are going to take a look at one of the latest wireless routers from Netgear – the R6300.  This offers the latest in dual-band wireless technology, supporting the 802.11ac specification.  This should offer significantly better throughput than a 802.11n network, theoretically up to around 1,300 MB/s.  We are very interested to see how the Netgear R6300 fares in our tests.

Netgear are highly regarded for producing some of the best networking products on the market.  They offer a varied range encompassing everything from network attached storage to mobile broadband products and wireless routers.
