Step up from the generic routers provided by ISP's
Purchased this from Jb after becoming sick and tired of my generic router provided when i joined up with my internet service provided. It os very easy to setup and took me approx 30 mins to change all my devices to connect to this router (3 iphones, 2 ipads, apple tv, fetch tv). Straight away i noticed the strength of the signal was stronger and more reliable. The wifi speed is also faster (although not fantastically so). Am i glad i purchased this- hell yeah. Looks great too.
Good modem, but a bit pricey
We bought this modem after our flatmate moved out and took his modem with him and our existing modem can't reach our 2nd floor (split level unit). It reached the 2nd floor alright. It can broadcast 2 different frequencies at the same time. We leave it on 24/7, and we have to restart it every now and then when it stop working.
Picked one of these up for $130 to replace my 15 year old netgear dg834gt modem. Great connection speeds, no modem dropouts. WIFI range is greatly improved from the old setup.
Clunky GUI could be improved. One star off because "reboot" in the admin menus actually factory resets the thing so you need to start all over again. Another star off because firmware upgrade is a P.I.T.A and cannot be done over the air. It almost bricks the thing every time you try.
Encountered a couple of Issues with the Netgear D6000...
My previous modem died so I went to JB-HIFI and bought a NetGear D6000, it was fairly easy to setup and initially I didn't have any issues with it.
This router supports port forwarding to internal IP addresses which is good, I wanted to open up port 80 through to a server on my network so that I could host a website from home.
When trying to set this up I found I could not port forward port 80 as the port was reserved by the routers admin UI, I searched the support on the Netgear website and found that this a known issue with no fix, th...is was a major blocker to running a website from home using this router. I gave up on the idea of hosting a website from home but a few months later NetGear released a firmware upgrade which addressed this specific issue and i was then able to port forward port 80 through to a server on my network, Nice! Apart from that the only other issue I've had with the router was it was refusing to connect to my internet for a while, it seemed to be unable to negotiate a connection with the ISP. I rang up support and troubleshooted the issue with them, they said this was a common issue with a few routers including this one.. I tested using another router which was able to connect to the internet fine. I think i ended up waiting a few days and resetting the router a few times and was able to get the router connecting again. So this router has worked but I've had a few issues with it, I don't think i would recommend this router to a friend, there are probably much better routers out there with less issues, i mainly just went for this router because it was cheap. When you said up this router you will have two wireless networks available to you, a 2.4ghz network and a faster 5ghz wireless network, I have connected to both and I can not tell the difference as my internet speed is not that fast anyway.
Good if you enjoy constant internet dropouts.
This router is good if you enjoy resetting your modem once a week.
Generally speed of internet deteriorates badly over a period of time, so a reboot is required to get it going again. Wifi range is fine as we have no problem after a reboot, however the consistency of it working is not great.
Would not recommend if you can afford to spend a little more on a good one.
I've just purchased this router. It's great!
It has 2 wifi's with different velocities so that you can use the best one with the newer technologies as phone and newer laptop, but also keeps the custom one for older technologies.
Stable service, reaches the whole house, (don't live in a huge place though haha)
Good product, let down by terrible customer service
I purchased this router when upgrading to a 25/5 NBN account.
As far as day to day operations go it's a good unit. It provides a strong signal on both the 2.4 and 5Ghz bandwiths.
Setup, if you just want to use it with its defaults or you purchase it preconfigured is fine, however if you want to do any special configuration this is where the problems start.
The iOS app does not allow for any configuration so you have to resort to logging into the router via a browser portal.
The interface is confusing, the settings are extremely hard to understand.
Worst of all is Netgear customer support. You get 90days free access and then you have to pay to speak to anyone.
Piece of Junk cannot believe JB Hifi and Harvey Norman have been selling it
The worst modem router I have ever purchased.
- wifi connections keep getting refused at will. rebooting modem fixes it but only for a short time
- ethernet connections also unreliable
- remote login does not work
- support line was unhelpful, unknowledgeable and inexperienced.
buy Netgear if you have money to waste.
D6000 – AC750 WiFi Modem Router - 802.11ac Dual Band Gigabit
Bought this router from Harvey Norman, it lasted about 6 months then died. It was replaced and then the replacement died after another few months. Complete waste of money and a piece of junk! Couldnt find an email contact for them from their site, every link O followed just gave me the run around. Wont be replacing it with another netgear!
terrible. waste of money and time
Got a D6000 router and its a piece of crap. Cannot connect to readyshare even though i had WD my book hard drive which on their website says highly compatible. As my router is only 6 months old, I tried to contact the Netgear and the customer care representative had poor English. I was trying to explain my problem to her and she wasn't understanding at all. It was terrible. Never gonna buy any Netgear product again. Thanks for wasting my money and time Netgear. Totally useless. Highly unreliable.
No problems out of the box
I bought this modem router to try, despite all the poor reviews. After following the quick setup guide and a few simple setting tweaks everything was working perfectly! really easy user interface, strong signal and a consistent connection. Obviously doesn't work for everyone but the D6000 worked great for me.
Fragile product and useless Support
I bought this router early April '16. I followed the brief installation instructions and changed the SSID and password to match my previous network name and password and that's where my problems started. I tested each of my devices to ensure they connected correctly to the network. I had to remove and reconnect a couple but they worked okay. The network then froze after an hour. I rebooted the router and again all was fine for an hour then it froze again. This pattern went on for the first couple days. I emailed NETGEAR support and was immediat...ely placed on the support 'merry go round' of unqualified people following their scripted responses and not providing any value. The only change I made during the install was to the default SSID / password and wondered if that was causing the instability so I reset the router to its factory settings and went through the installation process again. This time not changing the default settings. I did have to reconnect all my devices to the provided network name and password but it has been working reliably since. In summary, the router is working thus far but don't touch the default settings. And don't expect any help from NETGEAR's Indian call centre support. They are rubbish. This will be my last NETGEAR product.
An absolute junk
D6000 has junk software & device connectivity will keep dropping off/on. The problem seems to more on channel 6 for 2.4GHz. Any FW you load it will do the same thing until the unit decides to work on its own. Hard reset on FW 49 powers off the unit if button is held for more than 15secs. Only option is to pull out power cable and re-insert to get the unit back on. Best practice would be to save your working -if so- config to restore after erase or reset. Else you will need a hammer.
Bought this just over a year ago and it supposedly had a 1 year warranty. I could live with the fact it wouldn't connect automatically (just) but when the security flaw in it caused my internet quota to be destroyed in just days I figured it was time to get it fixed. The support team had a poor grasp of the English language so it took several frustrating attempts to outline the issue, then I was told it would cost me a minimum of $80 for technical support which I refuse to pay for something that is supposedly still under warranty. They told ...me the firmware I had was a beta version but when I checked the website it was definitely the latest release. They showed no empathy for my issue and seemed intent on charging you for incompetent technical support. I decided it would be cheaper to buy another brand of router from my ISP and let them deal with the support. At least I can communicate effectively with them. No more NetGear products for me.
The worst router ever
I bought the Netgear D6000 AC750 WiFi Modem Router but this wireless modem router was running very slow and it kept cutting out every time, which was a nuisance and a total pain. I would not recommend it at all so don't waste your money on something that is useless.
