Like many of you, I enjoy the latest technology, and like most when, I'm using the latest technology, I just want it to work as intended. Over the last few years, we have watched as 802.11ac technology has grown from initial AC1200 routers to the latest solutions including AC2400, 3200 and now 5300.
Over the last few years, AC1900 has been the most popular as it provides a path forward with this technology integrated into many motherboards, smartphones, and notebooks. With this, Netgear went to work creating a new series of wireless platforms called the Dead Spot Terminator Series or DST. The first of these solutions is the Nighthawk R7300, which is based on the R7000 with added features. The power supply has been moved internal and, in turn, powerline technology has been added that is compatible with HomePlugAV.
Specifications of the Nighthawk DST start with a dual-band gigabit platform featuring 600Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 1300Mbps on the 5GHz band. At the heart of this router, we have a 1GHz dual-core processor sitting next to 256MB of DRAM and 128MB of flash.
Connectivity of this solution includes two USB port with one supporting the USB 3.0 standard along with five Gigabit Ethernet ports - four for LAN and one for WAN. With this unit being part of the DST family, included you will find the DST adapter. This adapter supports the AC650 standard putting out 300Mbps on 2.4GHz and 350 on the 5GHz along with added functionality of being powerline networking infused and compatible with HomePlugAV standard.
MSRP of the Netgear Nighthawk DST R7300 sits at $249.99 with a one-year warranty.
