Re: info about the new R8500 or r8000

I can not speak for the R8500 personally, but the answer is yes for the R8000 and issues with IPv6. You can assume that the R8500 does as well since they work off the same core packages in the source code. I assume since you are asking about these two models you want a router with 2.4GHz and two 5GHz radios. [ I do not call them tri-band routers like Netgear does since a real tri-band router would be the 802.11n (2.4GHz) 802.11ac (5GHz) and 802.11ad (60GHz) ]

It's semantics, but if I'm not mistaken, technically, one radio operates in the U-NII-1 (5.150-5.250 GHz) frequency band and the other operates in the U-NII-3 (5.725-5.825 GHz) frequency band, so these routers can be reasonably classified as tri-band.
