Want R6300 But Not Until USB 30 Added

Really want to get the R6300 but not without USB 3.0. Amazing that Netgear puts out a $200 Router with Yesterday's ports on it. Anyone hear news of an upgrade?

Re: Want R6300 But Not Until USB 30 Added

Since routers with USB 2.0 can never achieve the speed of 2.0, I doubt USB 3.0 will be available any time soon. The routers main function is to route, and handle your ISP connection. There simply is not enough CPU power and memory to handle 3.0 speeds. If there was you will be sorely disappointed.

Good point - I hadn't thought of that regarding streaming or throughput. Just did a quick read and you are absolutely right Smiley Happy Not going to be enough computing power for this to make a difference.

Thanks! Now I get to go shopping Smiley Happy
