The R6100 is the latest addition to Netgear's 2013 router lineup and retails for an easier-to-justify price than its siblings. For $100, the 802.11ac-generating square will connect to the new Macbook Air's upgraded wireless, with a dual 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz a/b/g/n antenna ensuring compatibility with your first-gen Zune. Like the R6200, the now-available R6100 hits 1200 Mbps combined and packs Ethernet for wired connections. It doesn't hit the speeds of the R6300, but, for half the money, what's 550 Mbps among friends?
