Just looked on Amazon UK and the one there (from the photos) appeared to be V1.
Also, the reviews were of the D6300.... :confused:

Apart from the "Early Days" when V1 was released (some firmware updates later) my V1 seems to be working fine. Personally I'm happy to wait a few months to see what birthing pains are experienced.

Nice. If you don't mind, how much was it?

Still not available on Amazon, or most other retailers.
Amazon have had a cryptic message up for a while on their R6300 product page:

"Item Under Review
This product is not currently offered by Amazon.co.uk because a customer recently told us that the item he or she received was not as described.
We are working to resolve this as quickly as possible. In the meantime, you may still find this product available from other sellers on this page."

Amazon still have the R6300 under review, does anyone know what this even means? Is the R6300v2 inbound?

Re: Is R6300v2 available in UK yet?

In Mid September I ordered the R6300 from Amazon thinking I would get the R6300v2 (the pictures on their website showed a USB 3.0 port).

I called to tell them I received something different to what was shown in the photos (I received the R6300v1), but they insisted on sending me another one in case the first was a mistake.

Without even opening the replacement I could tell that I once again received the R6300v1. Serial Numbers etc... have now confirmed that and I am awaiting a response from Amazon.

In the mean time, I'm trying to solve the issues I'm having with this router! Having difficulty streaming from a NAS server and simultaneously surfing the internet on my PC without seeing lags and ping spikes.

I now have two R6300v1's, the speed is phenomenal (on 5G with Plusnet fibre it pushes 72mbit over wifi), but I seem to have LAN issues.

that's what I was planning to do but Amazon still have yet to finish their investigations.

the item has currently been "under review" for over a month!
