  1. Very Efficient review by Raf on 7/29/2014

    The Netgear R6300 is a very efficient router. I love the sleek, minimalist design. It fits perfectly on my desk, not looking like a clunky piece of machinery. The performance, however, only makes the design more impressive... the power is a mystery to me. Then, the DD-WRT firmware, it's incredible. Using this router, you will have true control over your network. Perfect for anyone looking out for bandwidth hogs.

  2. A Recommended Router review by Alan on 6/30/2014

    I can certainly say this is a recommended router. Fantastic speeds, very nice range, and overall great performance. This router works great alongside my Apple Airport Extreme, and using a VPN on my devices has never been easier.

  3. Very Very Happy review by Jim on 3/26/2014

    I am very very happy with this purchase. Incredibly fast delivery, great customer support, and a router that works very well. I am completely an amateur when it comes to this stuff, so it was great to have a router flashed for VPN right out of the box!

  4. Easy to use, awesome performance review by Paul on 3/21/2014

    I am definitely a novice when it comes to this stuff, but I found FlashRouters to offer great customer support- they were extremely helpful! The router is fantastic, too.
