Summary: This is an excellent router. Why waste time trying to flash a router to DD-WRT when Buffalo has the firmware built into their routers? I highly recommend purchasing Buffalo routers for your wireless networking. They are more secure, because they incorporate DD-WRT firmware. The ammenities, such as Wi-Fi hotspots and frequency boosts are well worth the $65.00 I spent on this item.
Summary: Buffalo usually makes rock solid gear that is the best bang for the buck. However, this particular model has a fairly major bug that they won't consider as a defect. If you customize the settings too much, the router stops routing. The device itself can get out to the net, but wired and wireless devices behind it can't. I haven't nailed down the specific setting that breaks it yet, but it pops up after the DHCP IP range is customized and ssh is enabled.
Summary: Purchased new, open box from a large electronics retailer, with DD-WRT firmware already installed. Claims of "high power" are blatantly false. Wireless signal poor even when set to maximum. For some reason firmware caps radio at 125mw, pathetic since actual signal is closer to 80mw. (note: radio is capable of 900mw supposedly). Wired speeds were ok, but wireless signal is slow and unreliable. Totally unable to stream video or even some audio when connected wirelessly.
Summary: It's a good router, small, good range, semi-professional, above average reliability comparing with others routers in the same price. I'm using DD-WRT v24-sp2 (11/09/10) std - build 15704, it's more stable than official DD-WRT from Buffalo
worth the price, but not good for lan party for transfering data between pc

Summary: the router is stable. The signal is good. but not like 5 stars. you can expect it will be stronger than other two antennaes products but not much. a small problem is the exchange rate between each computer in the lan is not that fast.
This router is easy to configure and performs very well. Recommended!

Summary: This device was quite easy to configure and has very nice range, My laptop, which is about 50 feet away, went from 54Mbps to 130Mbps! I still have a router reset problem, so I'm not sure if it's Windows 7 or the router(probably both...)Quite satisfied with this product, though!
