I am using the R6300 v1 and it's rock solid. I love it. I have 12 total devices on it. I read and hear the Asus rt-ac66r is also a great router and well liked. You shouldn't go wrong with either. of course YMMV applies.

I am not familiar with that Netgear. I went with the Asus RT-AC66U (basically the same thing; I think the "R" is tied to a specific retail outlet).

RT-AC66U can configure IPV6 DHCP-PD.

Go with the Asus AC. The range is killer.

All of the Asus "R" versions are Best Buy sold I believe.

I have the 6300 and the range on it is AMAZING, I get strong 5 Ghz signal in areas of my home I was not able to before, including using an Asus RTN66U, my previous router. They're both good routers, but I tell you, I am VERY impressed with the 6300, in terms of speed, range and reliability. The Netgear, like the Asus is well supported by 3rd party firmware, and even with the stock FW is able to be configured a good amount.

I have the Linksys EA6300(EA6400) and it's 5 GHz range is either incredible or it's 2.4 GHz is terrible. My 5 GHz was getting around/very slightly better of a signal than 2.4 GHz.
