No firmware updates for DD-WRT

M. Lowery, Amazon
27 September 2014
  • Summary: This is a decent router but good luck getting new firmware updates. I'm running DD-WRT and Buffalo hasn't updated their firmware in over 2 years. The DD-WRT website does not provide a download for this model, so Buffalo is your only option (AFAIK).

Better not keep your hopes high

Carlos Guzman "radeonic", Amazon

  • Summary: It works as intended, giving you an extended range of wireless capable area, and when combined with the 9dbi gain antennas it is enough for my concrete house. Dont believe the DD-WRT nonsense, since its an buffalo sourced version with a lot of bugs and limitations, had to use the community driven...

Great if you like to tinker.

Steve, Amazon

  • Summary: I learned a valuable lesson with the 2 purchases of this router. I purchased it mainly for the DD-WRT software that you could upgrade and change. Awesome, right? I found out that I hate tinkering with router settings.

Has Bugs, Advanced Options, Good Range with High Speed at Extremities

JP, Amazon
27 April 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this item somewhat hesitantly as there seems to be a lot of bad reviews or complaints on this product. This router is definitely one for folks who want to have greater control over fine tuning their router.

Giving it a new chance with DD-WRT build 18795

Transplant Montanan, Amazon
28 February 2012
  • Summary: PLEASE NOTE UPDATE BELOW. FEBRUARY 2012 REVIEW: I have been using this unit for about three months (purchased Dec 2011). The version of DD-WRT (17140) pre-installed on the router constantly drops connections, fumbles authentications, and supports only slightly better range (in N mode) than my old...

Tough to Set Up

seawolf, Amazon
7 February 2012
  • Summary: I'm computer-savvy, but had no knowledge of any but the simplest of routers. The initial setup went smoothly, and I was able to get online with my laptop. However, my wife's iPad® was an entirely different matter.
