Beware of Netgear D6300 Router

I just brought a new Netgear D6300 Wireless Router yesterday and was horrific shocked that the router never show any line stat at all, it already had the latest firmware.
Wifi is very poor on 5Ghz mode
No line stat at all
Wifi kept drop out every 30 minutes
access to webpage 192.168.0.1 only via ethernet (not wifi as it won't work)
Took it back and got a full refunded. This is the worst Netgear top of the range is a joke with £189.99. Will never buy from Netgear again.

I have no issues with my N300 but it is a bit older than yours, haven't tried the 5Ghz wifi as I don't have anything on that freq. As to line stats none 'cause I am on fibre.

My line stat is not showing at all on my currently ADSL2+ (not fiber as I don't have FTTC available yet in my area)
I stick with my old DGND3700v2 for now.

Surely if you are that disgusted with Netgear you should throw your old one in the bin as well?  Could the D6300 have been faulty rather than just bad?
