Does not work with provided firm ware...

Charles & Christine, Amazon
10 May 2014
  • Summary: Spent 6 hours trying to get this router to work.. Auto Set-up works but when you try to add an additional computer it crashes and you have to start over... Never allows more than one wireless device on at a time... Keying up an android device blows it off line as well... Sorry stuff..

Useless

Absalon G., Newegg
27 December 2013
  • Pros: Somewhat better coverage compare to my TP LINK WR740N
  • Cons: Doesn't work with Hot-spots, The wireless range is not great, and if you switch to regular Buffalo firmware(awful), you cannot go back to DDWRT. This is more of a 30 dollar router. Its over priced for its capabilities. NOT WORTH THE HEADACHES. I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT.

Worked for one year

humble_rob, Amazon
27 March 2013
  • Summary: I thought I found a brand and a product I could count on in the wireless networking crapshoot. Contacted tech support a number of times since it is in warranty and finally gave up on ever getting a RMA. This router needs rebooted several times a day to keep an internet connection working.

Richard Flatt, Amazon

  • Summary: Very diffacult to set up, it took 2 calls to tec. support and 3 hours on thier part to get it going. Had a very good signal for the 3 days that it worked. Then it started sending out two signals and could not connect to the stronger signal and unless you were within 10 Ft of router could not connect...

Not ready for market

Robert M., Newegg
9 May 2012
  • Pros: No pros for a piece of equipment that doesn't work.
  • Cons: I have been using DD-WRT for about 4 years, and I wouldn't have a router with it. Our two AP's in the office got a little flaky so I decided to upgrade for better coverage and speed. These routers seemed to fit the bill. I flashed with the newest firmware as soon I got them, but for the past mont...

Pass this one up

James H., Newegg
30 March 2012
  • Summary: I actually have some performance data, but apparently that is not allowed here. So you'll just have to take my word for it.
  • Pros: DD-WRT Firmware
  • Cons: Link speed was NEVER above 180 Mbs. I have been in IT for over 10 years, so it's not a matter of not knowing how to set up a router. I spent probably two weeks trying to get this thing to break the 180 Mbs speed barrier performing iperf and jperf performance tests while playing with every wireles...

really disapointed

Richard B., Newegg
22 March 2012
  • Summary: I feel lied to. This piece of hardware sucks, job 1 is run the wireless network, and right now it doesn't do that well enough. Forget any discussion of range, if I can't get through a TV show worth of surfing, it's junk.
  • Pros: Can run an old version of DD-WRT (pre-installed version).
  • Cons: Crashes, a lot. The wireless network disappears on average once per 30 minutes. Although it comes with version of DD-WRT installed, this router isn't actually supported by that software in general. It was marked as "in progress", but now it's not listed at all. That means your stuck with the bugg...

Poor Range & Power

Mary Hughey, Amazon
18 March 2012
  • Summary: This unit is advertised as high power with high gain antennas(3). A simple A/B range comparison with my $29 Linksys from Walmart showed the Linksys unit slightly better range. Even after increasing the output power (which really does not seem to increase the output power).

The most expensive and worst piece of networking equipment I've ever owned

SP, Amazon
28 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought this useless product about a year ago. I paid about $100 for it when it came out because I wanted to get a better WiFi AP from an SMC AP. After about 50 weeks of suffering I am 100% confident that this is THE worst piece of networking equipment I have ever owned.
