There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Unfortunately, Netgear decided to dramatically change the internal components and then still sell it under the same name (R6700). With that said, Amazon has a little product alert indicating either R6700 or R6700v2. Well, they are shipping the R6700v2 which does not match some of the specifications shown on this page (in particular the CPU speed).
I know because after receiving a router that did not match, they offered to replace it and send the first version of the router (the one with the higher clock speeds as indicated on the actual product details) and ended up receiving the same thing (another V2).
I will say that for those interested in a router that will not be flashed with custom software or that will not use other more advanced functions a router can provide, this is no problem. For those of us that know the hardware and know what we are expecting, that is a problem.
I have it a 3 star because any company that makes an original version with better specs and then turns around and significantly changes this without changing the model number and making minor modifications on the box (see amazon's own photos - both boxes are pictured) simply does not deserve my trust. Speaking of ratings, many of the ratings you see here are lumped up with other Netgear products and also apply to the original more capable version.
I encourage you do your research and check reviews from different sources. This way, you will not be disappointed with the V2 that you will receive. I hope this help you make your decision!
Over the course of the next month, the smart devices grew angry. They couldn't chat freely and with reckless abandon. Sometimes they wouldn't ever hear each other. The Chromecast cried in solace. The smart lightbulbs faded to dark. Our guests grew angry with our unreliable network as Game of Thrones struggled to stream. We lost friends. Made enemies. At a certain point we decided enough is enough: it is time to throw more money at this problem.
That's how we ended up with this spaceship. I spent twenty minutes going through all the advanced settings to make sure it was set up well enough to satisfy my inner geek, then I unleashed it upon the internet. Game of Thrones streamed quickly. Netflix couldn't feed my router fast enough. My smart devices snapped to attention. The Chromecast wept, this time with tears of joy.
I am a hero. And all it took was a lot of money.

r6700v2 was a step down in performance. mediatek mips based 880mhz was not only slower than the arm cortex-a9 based 1ghz processor by frequency terms, but also by clock for clock single threaded performance as well. the broadcom chipset is also more stable and feature rich than mediatek's. luckily in the same year as the release of the v2, netgear released v3 which brought back the broadcom chipset and arm based processor. but there are still a lot of v2 units still out there on store shelves. I purchased mine back in sept. 18' and received a version 3 but there is still a chance of getting v2. if you walk into a brick and motor store the easiest way to tell is that the v2 box just lists "dual core" while v1 and v3 lists "1ghz dual core."
overall I love my v3 r6700. been rock solid stable. has all the features you want without the bloat. interface is simple to use. also supports dd-wrt which v2 does not.

Antes de instalar el router no podía, por ejemplo, ver clips en youtube, descargar/subir archivos y navegar al mismo tiempo. Ahora sí puedo, sin haber tenido que contratar un internet más caro con el proveedor. También ayuda a que varios aparatos estén conectados al mismo tiempo sin que le baje la velocidad a ninguno.
La instalación no fue tan fácil como dice la guía, pero nada que no pudiera resolver con google y prendiendo/apagando el módem y el router.
Una vez instalado, todo funciona de maravilla. Yo buscaba mejorar mi velocidad de internet y eso logré.
Ademas ofrece la capacidad de instalar el firmware DDRT, este firmware ofrece capacidad de personalización extrema. (También es muy fácil regresar al Firmware de fabrica).
El único punto en contra es que al configurar un cliente VPN por openvpn la máxima velocidad alcanzada es de 45mbps. Esto se debe a que el proceso de cifrado lo hace el procesador del router y no le alcanza para poder realizar el proceso mas rápido, degradando la velocidad. En mi caso con una velocidad de 200mbps solo podía obtener 45mbps.
En resumen: Un excelente router para usuarios normales. Un buen router para usuarios avanzados. No lo recomiendo como un RouterVPN.
