Not Buffalo's best...

Anonymous, Newegg
1 October 2012
  • Summary: I haven't nailed down the bug yet, but it pops up somewhere between changing the DHCP IP range and enabling ssh access to the device. The router stops routing - it can get out to the net itself, checking for firmware and pulling down web pages with wget for the command line, but both wired and...
  • Pros: DD-WRT out of the box, factory supported. External antennas. Fully customizable firewall. Guest wireless access.
  • Cons: Not as customizable as advertised.

Analysis

Elizabeth C., Newegg
15 September 2012
  • Summary: Don't sell a product that can't even forward ports. It's not nice. Specially when you imply the use of a "Professional" firmware. Which has become abundantly clear to me as a "near-complete" lie.
  • Pros: Functions like a Router. Can do what most people need it to do. Connect you to the internet.
  • Cons: The internet has a hard time connecting to you. Port 80, 21, 22, and other such "Simple" Ports for web servers, FTP, SSH, don't work. You can try and forward them but something in the router blocks it from reaching your computer. I've searched this subject quite a bit and it's something the route...

Not working for me

Thomas L., Newegg
22 July 2012
  • Summary: Would have been a nice router if i could have gotten it to work.
  • Pros: Lots of features
  • Cons: Cannot cant to internet through Comcast. Checked Buffalo forums and others with Comcast internet had same issues. Everything else on the router seemed to work hence 2 eggs instead of 1.

Too bad...

Kerry L., Newegg
20 June 2012
  • Summary: There are better DD-WRT routers out there or ones that support it. For the price this may be worth the chance, but this will be the last Buffalo I ever buy.
  • Pros: DD-WRT, FAST, Good Range. Reliable when it worked - 2 stars.
  • Cons: Died, bought 10/10 died 6/12. I've got Linksys routers that are 12 years old and are still going. It didn't really show any signs just randomly two days ago started dropping net connection randomly. Now takes more than 5 minutes to start up when you do a power reset.

Some machines don't connect well, range is ok

Lou S., Newegg
30 May 2012
  • Pros: Basic setup, cheap, that's about it...works a bit better than my old Linksys, as in 5 years old.
  • Cons: Some machines will not connect, or have trouble connecting, then drop the connection. The strength also seems weaker than marketed. I bought this to replace and older Linksys, and it does have a better range, but not by more than 10-20 feet, and the Linksys is much more reliable with maintaining ...

Not as good as I had hoped

Jason F., Newegg
19 May 2012
  • Pros: DD-WRT interface was nice. Loads of options and ability to tweak Easy setup through web interface AOSS feature for android
  • Cons: Range was definitely not what I hoped for, no better than my much older router Updated firmware through the web interface and lost connectivity to my modem. Tried manually updating, it said it completed but changed nothing. Put in enclosed CD to try and go back to original or the user friendly ve...

I wish it would work

Mark S., Newegg
8 March 2012
  • Pros: It was very easy to set up Had great reporting Strong Signal Stock firmware was easy to use
  • Cons: Had to constantly reset, after the 5th reset in 3 days I was unable to get any internet through it. Unfortunately not reliable at all. My linksys wrt54g hasn't been reset in three months. I'll be sticking with that. I really wanted this router to work.

Great Company, Bad Router :(

Nicholas H., Newegg
30 January 2012
  • Summary: Hopefully they step up their game, this router was just unacceptable from a company who offered such great products in the past. I am not turned off from buffalo, but i will be holding off purchasing their products until I see some changes made.
  • Pros: the only pro is that it runs DD-WRT.
  • Cons: This router, and the model below it, gave me nothing but trouble. The range was terrible, I never got the 300Mb/s LINK speed I was promised, my PS3 would not connect when the router was in automatic encryption mode, with DHCP enabled there is NO WAY to assign a static IP (Buffalo rep confirmed th...
