Just self-installed my XB6 this morning and I'll give it an early two-thumbs up! I was really impressed with the activation process. I was upgrading from an XB3 and when I activated the XB6 I was given the option to port the settings from my XB3. I thought it would only port my SSID and password settings, but it actually brought over all of the port forwarding settings and it also set the IP address for the new gateway to 192.168.1.1 to match my old setup. This was nice as I have some devices set up with static IP addresses and I need the port forwarding for remote access to my NAS drive.
I've only been using the XB6 for eight hours, but everything is working perfectly and speed tests are reporting 390 Mbps wireless download speeds.
As a bonus, it's a nicer looking piece of equipment.
At this point, I don't have a sense of whether the WiFi range is significantly different from my old XB3.
