Best N600 wireless routers (Updated November 29, 2013 3:00 AM PST)
N600 wireless routers are true dual-band routers that simultaneously offer 300Mbps cap speed on each of its two 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands. This speed belongs to the dual-stream setup of the 802.11n Wi-Fi standard and is currently the most popular setup found in both access points (routers) and Wi-Fi clients. The term N600 basically means "Wireless-N with the combined speed cap of 600Mbps."
The Linksys E3000 is the first advanced router that's also easy to use for novices. It provides great wireless performance and has a good set of useful networking features. Its mediocre NAS performance and limited guest networking feature make it significantly less than perfect, however.
