Although often overlooked, routers are important pieces of tech that most of us rely on for our daily work and online leisure activities. Not only can a quality router give you more control over your network while enhancing the power and speed of your Wi-Fi, it can save you money on monthly equipment rental fees if you are using the basic router supplied by your ISP. If you are considering an affordable quality router for your home or office, consider the $70 Netgear R6300v2.

The Netgear R6300v2 is a smart router that offers a dual-band AC1750 connection for a total throughput of 1,750Mbps — 450Mbps on the 2.4GHz band for simple tasks like web browsing and 1,300Mbps on the 5GHz band for larger jobs, such as streaming and online gaming. The 800Mhz dual-core processor and 256MB of RAM work together to handle more than 12 simultaneous connections, making the R6300v2 a solid option for larger home or office networks with numerous clients. Netgear’s Beamforming+ feature offers faster streaming for less buffering and lag, even with high-definition video.

Netgear R6300v2On the reverse side, the Netgear R6300v2 features four Ethernet LAN ports for wired connections along with a high-speed USB 3.0 port.
