The product packaging carries the standard vibrant Netgear coloring scheme with an image of the router centered. To the right, Netgear has outlined the inclusion of Geek Squad support as this solution is a Best Buy exclusive.

On the back of the box, we have marketing information towards the bottom with a diagram of this unit's functionality at the top.

The scope of delivery includes the router with its three antennas to the left along with two Ethernet cables, the power cord and DST adapter to the right.

Taking a look at the R7300 you will notice it is basically the same platform as the R7000. What we have that differs is the addition of DST LEDs to the far right.

The back of the router houses the three antenna ports, four LAN, and a single WAN port along with the power input that doubles as the powerline connection out.

Here we have the DST adapter and as you can see it closely resembles your typical powerline adapter. At the top, we have the geek squad logo along with four LEDs for connectivity.

On the side of the adapter we have a single gigabit Ethernet port, reset button and sync button.
