Summary: Purchased this router because I wanted to setup VPN on the router instead of all of my machines. As noted it comes pre-installed with DD-WRT but its Buffalo Technologies version of it which is missing a few components that I needed. For those that want to upgrade to the latest DD-WRT official firmware go to the project page and the router database here http://dd-wrt.com/site/support/router-database and type in Buffalo.
Summary: At the request of intermedia my voc company I signed up with costco, it was brought in to work as a bridge device. It never worked well with a long lag time. with calls being dropped at the onset of calls and also during the middle of the calls. voice quality was crackly which could be the phone them selves. when I called buffalo the service department could not solve the issue and took three days to call e back.
Summary: We had to return it. We could not make this thing work! We contacted the company and they sent a link to patch the error and it still did not work. So So frustrating. We bought a different brand that worked right out of the box.
Summary: First router did not work, got a replacement, second router did not work. -Same problem, the router refused to connect to the modem. Kept stating the connect the cable even though the clearly the cable was reset. -I tried two different houses and modems, same problem.
Summary: I’ve waited to write this review because I wanted to put the router in place in my home and give it a couple months of real world testing. My biggest takeaway? That it is FAST. I can get through menus and options much faster than a lot of other routers I worked with, and it’s memory and CPU load are almost always very low.
Pros: The lead up: The situation which lead me to purchase this router was simple: I had been using the original workhorse of home routers the WRT-54GL for many years and it was finally time to move to something with a bit more cpu power and memory. After doing a fair amount of research on the best upgrade I was not sure I wanted to go with a top of the line AC router as I don’t have any AC devices, and many options with N radios were into the $150 range which is more than ...
Cons: This is not really a con, but there is a limit to each section so this fits best here. I should note that by default the radio is pretty low power (71 mw) and a couple of the devices that don’t have great antennas were occasionally dropping connection when far from the router, but after giving the radio a small bump in power (only to 100mw) I have had no problems. This makes sense since my previous router had external antenna connectors with +15db antennas. If you wan...
