Netgear Claims Their R6300 Is The First 802.11ac Router Available.

Itching to get the latest in home networking technology? Look no further than Netgear’s just unveiled R6300 802.11ac router which touts speeds of up to 1.3 Gbps on the 5 GHz band and up to 450 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band. Like just about every other router, wired ethernet ports allow physical connectivity while a pair of USB ports aim to make any external hard drive you have lying around turn into instant network storage. Bonus: printers hooked up via the USB ports on the R6300 will be Air Print compatible with iOS devices.

The only downsides include the high $200 asking price (early adopter never carried the “affordable” label) as well as lack of any real devices to actually make use of all that new-found speed quite yet. Still, owning the claimed “first” 802.11ac router is a pretty lust worthy title, is it not?
