Netgear R6250

details: 802.11ac Dual Band Gigabit Wireless Router
hardware type: Wireless Router
date added: 2013-04-08
updated: 2015-09-23
The NETGEAR R6250 Smart WiFi Router with AC dual band delivers 1600Mbps (300Mbps- 802.11n + 1300Mbps - 802.11ac) wireless speeds.

With additional high-power amplifiers it provides WiFi connectivity throughout your home for all your Internet-enabled devices.

The router allows you to manage your network with genie App-a personal, icon-based dashboard that can control and monitor all your devices. Or, use Push 'N' Connect to add devices to your WiFi network with a push of a button. And the simple browser-based installation with no CD makes router installation easy using an iPad, tablet, smartphone, or computer.

Parental controls allow you to limit access to certain web sites at certain times. Guest networks create a completely separate WiFi network for your guests' devices, ensuring they do not have access to your home network or to the shared USB hard drive with all your personal data. Secure WiFi connections offer the highest level of WPA/WPA2 security.
