Won't touch Buffalo product with a barge pole!

Summary: No more Buffalo for me. Ever since purchase it produced nothing but problems. First signal dropping to one bar even when device was just in front of the router, then wireless connection drops - network would simply disappear. Occasionally 10 times within an hour. There wouldn't be a day when device actually functioned without issues. Now suddenly device has bricked itself - red DIAG light is on and is overheating.
Summary: Works great in a one bedroom apartment; I've been using the wireless router since Dec. 2, 2010 (model WHR-G300N v2). Serves as a wireless access point for my iPhone 4, and Air (Pandora radio, FaceTime, YouTube, etc.). No dropped connections. I have had some choppy FaceTime sessions, but I'm not sure if this is due to the router's maximum connection speed (up to 300Mbps.
Summary: For several years, Buffalo was tied up in legal battles over their wireless technology. Meanwhile, they continued to create some other great products -- primarily external hard drives and network-attached storage (NAS) drives. Now that Buffalo can legally sell their wireless devices, they've made some excellent products. I purchased a WHR-G300N based only on the Buffalo name.
Summary: I was skeptical of this unit because it was on sale from a well known computer company on the internet and had no direct experience with this brand. What a surprise that "good things do come in small packages" when it comes to this item. The setup was so easy a child with ADHD could do it. I like the encryption setup and it can broadcast three SSIDs, one for each different encryption type. I have devices that only support WEP, so it works out great for me.
Summary: This is a very good product. It was easy to install & works seamlessly. I would recomend this router to anyone that has te need for one. I have only one extra laptop now, but am expecting to add at least two more computers to the network. i'm sure that it will handle all the load. An excellent product. And received it promptly with no damage. Another good experience from Amazon!
Summary: I bought this router because it seemed to get the best reviews for the price (although even the best reviewed routers seem to atill have 1 terrible review for every 2 or 3 good ones). Setup using the CD was unsuccessful, but they provide 24/7 phone support and a pleasant, knowledgeable person helped me configure the router manually and made sure I was able to connect wirelessly to my laptop. It's been running flawlessly for about 5 days now.
Summary: A rock solid router after firmware is updated to DD-WRT and hence the 4-star. It is basically unusable with the stock firmware, especially with Comcast, where it could not find the DHCP server most of the time.
Summary: A little harder to set up and I had to update firmware to work properly.Once I did this and used the long encryption key It has worked flawlessly. It has a stronger signal strength and further range than other routersI have used.
