Buffalo Airstation and Netgear R6300 not Wi-Fi Certified??

By aubreedonatelly ·
I am looking into wireless routers, and I am looking at these two 11ac routers:

Buffalo Technology AirStation AC1300 / N900 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router, IEEE 802.11ac - WZR-D1800H

NETGEAR R6300 Wireless AC Dual Band Gigabit WiFi Router IEEE 802.11ac

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833122466

I started reading some reviews and they mentioned that these are not based on the 802.11ac spec, since it won???t be finalized till early next year. From what I could tell, they are not WiFi Certified.

I read that this could cause problems with devices that are released after the 11ac spec is finalized, so I am thinking of waiting, or getting a 11n router.

Can anyone tell more about this issue?

Should I only buy a 802.11ac router that has WiFi Certification?

Ideally yes you should only buy a device with the suitable certification but as that certification has yet to be finalized it's not quite possible to do at the moment is it?

Good feedback. I was wondering, Is 802.11N really much slow than 11ac? How much slower?
