wireless dropouts

John M, Amazon
5 February 2014
  • Summary: Many functions, but on my network it kept dropping wireless connections, a pity as otherwise excellent. Maybe it was a bad unit?

Bad out of the box. Good after firmware update.

Honest Opinion, Amazon
5 February 2014
  • Summary: It's difficult to know how to rate this router. I chose it specifically because it's one of the few ADSL modem routers that have a build of the open-source DD-WRT firmware available for it. Upon receipt, I decided to try the router with its standard Buffalo firmware. I set it up, all went well, and all my devices (wired and wireless) worked fine. The next morning, none of my wireless devices could access the internet. I rebooted the router, and all was well again.

Did the Job

I. Tunnacliffe, Amazon
28 November 2013
  • Summary: I had been struggling with poor coverage through the house since I switched to fibre service from my ISP and so had to stop using the combined modem/router that I had before . The route supplied by the ISP was a bit feeble and because of where the BT line terminates had to be right at one end of the house. This led to poor coverage at the other end.

Good DD WRT modem router wireless

Abel, Amazon
22 November 2013
  • Summary: This model is compatible with DD WRT and serves both as router and modem. I have experienced some drops but I'm guessing that has more to do with my ISP than with this router.

  • Summary: Pretty easy to set up. I bought this to replace my BT HH3. It works great in place of the HH3, but I could not get VPN working.

Great range, poor design.

L. A. Smith, Amazon
17 August 2013
  • Summary: Ok, the positive first - this router has fantastic range and is really fast. It comes with "drt-ww" firmware (google for more details), so is incredibly configurable, and also comes with a CD which enables you to install a more simple user friendly firmware. It handles different wifi standards flawlessly and seems really stable. Now the problems - it is terribly designed.
