First 802.11ac WF-Fi Router Coming from Netgear

Netgear will have bragging rights to being the first company to commercially offer a router using 11ac standards, operating on the 5 GHz band. Bragging rights will be all they have for a while since there are no compatible devices presently available on the market.

The R6300 is a dual-band router, though, so a settings tweak should let you banish slower devices to the lower 2.4 GHz band, while maintaining faster devices on the 5 GHz band.
