Buffalo calls it a basic interface that is useless, none of my devices will connect to it

Summary: Purchased the Buffalo Airstation N600 Wzr600dhp2d Gigabit Dual Band Open Source Router less than a year ago as a spare router. Well, last week,finally needed to use it. Take it out of the box, plug it in, the unit initializes, locks and comes up with this strange interface that is not DD-WRT.
Summary: I'll have to deal with this, since it is out of the 30 day return policy for new egg. I'll save my money bit by bit and pick up another router. This sucks.
Pros: Ran great for about a week.
Cons: Constant dropped wireless signal. I've check with my ISP and and have no issues with the unit when plugged in via ethernet cable. Use wifi analyzer and you can see the signal constantly dropping off, re-appearing, dropping off..... This unit is no where near any interference, and I have gear no m...

Summary: I am warning each and everyone who is buying Buffalo products. They DO NOT HAVE A CUSTOMER SUPPORT NUMBER. Only Email and the email support will not help you one bit. I have been trying to reach out the customer support since 1 month.
Good for IT professionals who want an affordable router. Everyone else keep looking.

Summary: Ships from factory with faulty dd-wrt firmware. When updated firmware is no longer dd-wrt, or if it is they have changed the layout out and simplified it so much the DD-WRT user will be confused. Couldn't detect the cable modem which is why I returned it.
Summary: Be aware that the documentation on the N300 Open is awful. All of the documentation is built into the UI of the router, so it's readily accessible, but it's not very verbose and it seems like about a third of the terminology doesn't actually match up with what is presented in the UI.
Summary: My fiancée and I bought this router to replace an older model that was only wireless G speeds which made our Plex server be pretty choppy when playing high definition movies. This router made the choppiness go away due to the N speeds. We choose this due to the software and relatively good reviews.
Pros: Fast wireless speed Can handle many connections well Does very well without any QoS set up No annoying lights Small size Easy to set up without CD DD-WRT Pre-Installed with very advanced configuration features Hardly ever has to be restarted Able to print a "Setup Card" from the web interface if ...
Cons: No 5GHz network QoS can be difficult to set up than other routers due to the more advanced settings The Firmware Upgrade always has an error so it requires manual flashing DD-WRT has a higher learning curve
