NETGEAR has a deal on their AC1750 router, R6300v2, for only $69.99. This appears to be 30% off from their normal pricing, so I thought I would share. I used one of these in my home a few years ago, and it worked great (at that time they were more than double this price).

The v1 of these had poor support for their AC chipset on DD-WRT firmware releases for a long time so I replaced them all with these v2's a few years back when they were $200+

Solid devices, just remember that while their stock firmware make them super-easy to use, you should flash DD-WRT on them to really unlock their full potential. I have a few of them set up as wireless bridges and can reliably saturate my 500Mbps internet link from across the hosue. While it has two antennas (5GhZ and 2.4), the stock firmware won't let you assign them to specific vlans (only a 'guest' mode in stock firmware for direct-to-internet) so once you have DD-WRT you can assign each radio to tag specific vlans you might be using on you network for things like IoT/IP Cameras. This is useful to configure IP cameras to their own vlan so that they can see my surveillance server but not any of my other networked device nor the internet.

An used one is only $25. Is there any reason to think that it might be a v1?

There's probably no way to really know. Netgear sold a lot of v1's before they transitioned

This is a good router. I happened to find one at goodwill for $6. I compared it side by side with my Asus TM-1900 (Flashed to RT-AC68U firmware) that I bought for ~$50 on Tanga recently. Range and speed were not as good on the netgear, but both were more than adequate for my 2200sf one story house. and my entire lot. I do prefer the Asus firmware (I use the highly acclaimed Merlin mod). I wouldn't pay $70 for this, but the $25 used one is definitely worth it. The firmware interface is pretty basic and I definitely prefer the Asus one (Especially with the Merlin mod). Either can run custom firmware like Tomato.

I have 3 of these on stock firmware (just make sure to use one from the last year or so). I have never needed to reboot them.

Looking to replace this router now. Worked pretty good for 2 years or so and now the WIFI stinks. It gradually got worse as time passed. I just tried flashing ddwrt and still no luck. My phone and fire stick drop constantly and it hangs on web pages randomly. I have another router fed through this one via Ethernet at the other end of house. I can connect to that perfectly, but when I get back on netgear WiFi, nothing. Just my experiences.


I'm considering either the archer ac1200, archer c7, archer c9, or the T-Mobile asus router. Any thoughts?

I just bought an Archer C1200 a few days ago (not the Archer AC1200 which is also called the Archer C5, names confusing AF) and so far so good. Firmware is locked, but the stock one isn't bad. It has what I need: OpenVPN server, Dynamic DNS, and basic QoS. On sale for $50 at Fry's right now.

t-mobile ac1900 is rock solid. Just check all the slickdeal threads for that.

I used this Netgear v2 with ddwrt for over a year and it was pretty stable. Six months ago, I switched to tmobile ac1900 and it's a lot more stable and faster; never ever have to reboot.

Don't buy this router. I've had it and I've sold it YEARS ago. Hold out for something better.

A bit off topic... I have the TM-AC1900, but now thinking about getting a new router for a house I'm about to move in (3200 sqf, 2-story). I know the router is essentially a RT-AC68U, which is a great router with tons positive reviews. But I have compared it to both Linksys and Netgear's AC1900. The range and speed (throughput at distance) is not as good as Linksys and Netgear. Not sure if it's an issue of new vs old...
