NETGEAR R6250 Smart WiFi Router Wireless AC Review
With the Wireless AC standard to be finalised in early 2014 now is a great time to start looking at Wireless AC tech for your home network. NETGEAR suggest the R6250, their latest AC router, is ideal for homes that have upwards of ten devices to connect. While that may seem a lot this is actually an easy target in todays connected world where set-top boxes, smart TV’s, phones, tablets, laptops, desktops etc all want to access our content. So today we take a look at NETGEAR’s latest offering the R6250 Wireless AC Dual Band Gigabit Router.
Packaging and Bundle
The R6250 arrives in a matt finished box, with a foil band across the bottom, differing slightly from the usual glossy boxes. We have a clear photo of the product on the front with key specification callouts around the sides. Then on the back we have more detailed specifications and information. Inside we have a formed cardboard insert holding our router and bundled equipment.
In the bundle we have a single Cat.5e cable, product documentation and NETGEARs latest revision power supply. Previously a separate power brick has been included with a large cable, this has been reduced to a small form factor transformer and lead.
