Netgear has launched their latest consumer router and it is a really nice one. The R6400 is an AC1750 Smart WiFi Router designed to offer great value and features the latest technology for bandwidth and range.
The R6400 AC1750 Smart WiFi Router comes with three powerful external antennas, high power amplifiers, and Airtime Fairness that prevents throttling by slower devices, combined with implicit and explicit Beamforming to boost the router’s WiFi performance at long range. It can perform up to 80 percent better than the previous generation which is quite a nice accomplishment.
The router comes with two USB ports for easy drive and printer sharing. One is a USB 3.0 port that is located on the front while the other is a legacy USB 2.0 port that is located on the rear. It is a full Gigabit-Ethernet router with both Gigabit WAN and four Gigabit LAN ports.
The dual-band AC1700 router is backwards compatible will all previous wireless standards and also supports 802.11 a/b/g/n devices. The combined bandwidth goes up to 1750Mbps thanks to the 450Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and the 1300Mbps on the 5GHz band.
VPN networks aren’t any problem either with this router and it also supports Netgear’s genie app that allows you to remotely connect and manage your router. The MyMedia feature enables you to find and play your stored media files from anywhere on your network to your Chromecast connected TVs, DLNA-ready TVs, and music system. You can also make any printer AirPrint compatible for printing from an iPad or iPhone. The ReadySHARE Vault is another free software that takes automatic backups of incremental changes on all PCs in your home network and saves them to a USB drive connected to the router. The AC1750 Smart WiFi Router is also compatible with Apple Time Machine for automatic Mac backup.
The NETGEAR AC1750 Smart WiFi Router is available now worldwide from major retailers in stores and online, at an MSRP of $149.99 USD.
