Summary: This router overheats a lot. Even though it's sitting vertically on top of a bookshelf with nothing near it it somehow manages to need a powercycle daily. Thankfully, there is a configuration for that in the DD-WRT firmware!
Cons: After about 35 days of use, the Internet port stopped working. It would no longer connect to the Internet, but I could reach the device over the network. That means it lasts long enough for NewEgg not to deal with it and have to go through Buffalo customer service...
Summary: At first I was excited to set this thing up, then I started to slowly discover that certain features just don't work, such as the SAMBA service. I flashed it with the latest DD-WRT release for this model, and then it just went even worse.
Summary: I have been using this router for last year or so.Range is great ,connection is solid and does not require frequent reboots like many other competing brands,but keep your finger crossed that you never need support.3 year warranty my a.
Summary: If you are buying this product as a wireless repeater / extender, do not waste your time. after wasting 3 hours trying to configure it and calling tech support, it was all a waste of time because the firmware does not support a repeater mode.
Summary: After 4 hours on my own and 1 hour with support I returned this item. I was trying to install it as a wireless access point (WAP, an advertised capability). There were many pages of quick start guides, but none for that function. Support didn't have one for me either.
Summary: I bought this router thinking that with the giant antennas and the write-up that it would be stronger than my existing router. (Netgear N600) Boy was I wrong. It's at least 25-30% weaker. Major disappointment.
