Pros: Very Fast Easy to Use DD-WRT software Looks Good?
Cons: I've had problems ever since about a year ago. First it stopped broadcasting SSID, which a reset helped. And then it stopped broadcasting and then wouldnt use any other SSID name and WPA2 password except for the default. Now it won't broadcast AT ALL. After multiple resets, firmware upgrades, etc...
Summary: What a waste of weekends, nights and precious time.
Pros: Looks nice, good antennas. Nice DD-WRT Firmware where you can lose yourself for days and may end up bricking the device. I would have given it zero eggs but that is not an option.
Cons: WiFi freezes no matter what firmware you use even the open WRT. It broadcasts SSID but not working. Must do hard reset to get it to work. Temperamental. Packet Loss. I was living by Buffallo quality and after two of these which I have shy of over 1 year, I am a laughing stock of IT community. I w...
Don't not buy if you need to use the internet more than 20 minutes at a time

Summary: Unless you want to limit everyone's internet use in your house to 30 minutes at time get another router.
Pros: Decent signal range and easy set up.
Cons: This router is terrible. The router will just shut itself off randomly and there is no way to fix it. I tried installing updates and re-installing the router numerous times and nothing worked. I bought this router cause my girlfriend and I are both in school and take online classes so we need a g...
Pros: No idea. It's the first Buffalo I've bought. The interface seemed ok.
Cons: It worked for a short while, then the LAN stopped connecting to anything no matter what port I used. The wired connections are dead. Wireless I've reviewed the forums and documentation. I configure routers and switches all the time. I generally blame user error or ignorance. Oh well...
Summary: I was struggling to get two Buffalo WHR-HP-G300N units working as reliable wifi APs at an office.. I couldn't believe these could be so unreliable and figured it was wireless interference at the office or just 2x faulty units..
Pros: Provides excuse to waste countless hours of troubleshooting and linux hacking, which may make you smarter. Inspires continued respect, use and deployments of the good old Linksys WRT54GL routers..
Cons: Despite all of your tinkering efforts, nothing actually fixes the router and in the end, by the time you give up, you'll be further haunted by the weekends you wasted trying to get it to work, the hair you pulled out of frustration, the weeks of spotty internet connectivity and the fact you bough...
Summary: I had Linksys router that i did flashed with ddwrt multiple times and different versions.. I used to schedule reboot once a week just to refresh caches, etc... So hw died. But bufflo right out of the box having issues...
Cons: first used to dropall connections once a day, now every 5 minutes. Reflashed with the same firmware but no luck... I see that many users having this issue, just search on google and Buffalo was pretty unresponsive about it..
Summary: I've had good results with Buffalo gear over at least 5 years, with multiple different units. I still have two older long range G WAP's with DD-WRT running just fine. This unit was very disappointing.
Pros: DD-WRT support baked in, good coverage (not great) and features.
Cons: Very slow interface performance for what should have been a snappy specification. Painful upgrade to current DD-WRT supported firmware followed by failed configurations and 30-30-30 resetting.
Summary: Save yourself the possibility of hassle and order a WRT-54GL.
Pros: Looks pretty(ish).
Cons: I received the unit today. After spending about 2 hours attempting to configure it, and spending even more time on the phone with a Buffalo tech, I will be requesting an RMA to exchange it for one that hopefully works. Maybe that's what they offered up the $20 rebate for: return shipping costs.
Summary: Would not recommend this, nor any other Buffalo product, to anyone, not even an enemy.
Pros: Great as a wired router.
Cons: As long as the wifi portion is enabled, the device constantly freezes, requiring a hard reset. Buffalo outright refuses to address this problem, dismissing it as not common. The first ten pages of Google results is people sharing their problems.
