Netgear R6320 Review

While many of us might be having small living spaces, our internet requirements do not remain confined. From streaming 4k videos to attending video conferences calls, a modern router has become a basic necessity. That’s why the Netgear R6230 is specially designed for small to medium-sized apartments, sufficing most of today’s internet needs. Also, the router offers basic features which are suitable for homes only. This is because it doesn’t support any MU-MIMO or BeamForming to enable many connections simultaneously. Therefore, the Netgear R6320 is a great choice for those looking for a decent home router at an affordable price range.

You find the usual array of ports at the back, such as a WAN port, four Ethernet LAN ports, a coax port, and a single USB 2.0 port.
