Summary: I replaced an Asus RT-N12 that was connected to my cable modem with this. I'm now getting my ISP-advertised speeds and much fewer dropped packets on my repeater bridge, an older WHR-HP-G54 also with DD-WRT. Signal is going about 14m and through 2 walls + 1 floor. Before I had only been getting about one-fourth to one-third of my expected speeds. Ping test shows dropped packets at <=1% compared to ~5% before.
Summary: This router is just about legendary as far as DD-WRT routers go. It has a built in amplifier and can do about 1W of transmission power and has increased receive sensitivity. It has about the best range of anything off the shelf and a single RP-SMA port for use with an aftermarket antenna.
Summary: I have 4 G54 WHR-HP-G54 Routers / Bridges. I use them in my home network. It's always been stable and has good performance. Why stay with a G network and not upgrade to a N one might ask? I did but lost my range. I still have the N router and bridges I bought with it but everytime I get them out and try them I run into the same issue, poor range which causes dropped signals.
Summary: Precisava de um router novo e como ja tive um igual, voltei a marca que me da confiança e realmente funciona! Estou muito contente com ele e recomendo a quem quiser. Este produto é realmente algo fenomenal. Muito bom e potente. É discreto e aconselho-o a todos aqueles que querem algo bom, pratico e seguro, mas acima de tudo, de grande e excelente qualidade. Apenas um pequeno zumbido que faz ao ligar, mas nada de especial.
Summary: This is one of the best routers ever built if you flash it with DD-WRT or Tomato. The built in firmware is ok, but all of them are now used, as it's not made anymore and most people flash these to optimize performance. It has a built in amp and receive amp that works unless you are in a VERY noisy environment. The receive amp increases signal by 6 to 10 db without increasing the noise from 0 to 2 db in quiet settings.
Summary: This is the best router for stability with DD-WRT. I've had some that are on a UPS running non-stop for over a year without being rebooted. The problem is that they are becoming scarce as I don't think they are being manufactured anymore. The replacement product from Buffalo Air (the G300NH), although it has better hardware specs (e.g.
Summary: This router can be upgraded to the Tomato or DD-WRT firmware. My choice is to keep it simple, so I use Tomato. I have gone for as long as a year between having to reboot the router and even then it was just incase - most likely any issues are caused by my internet provider. QOS is fairly easy to setup if you have VOIP.
Summary: I chose this because the open source router firmware community has pretty well decided that either this product (Buffalo WHR-HP-G54) or the Linksys WRT54GL is the best way to go. In the beginning, I have owned three of the aforementioned Linksys routers and found that the bandwidth shaping tools available on either the DD-WRT or Tomato firmwares just do not produce reliable results. It seems to me that the Linksys gets bogged down by a modest amount of P2P traffic.
Hasn't dropped a connection or aborted a muti-gigabyte copy

Summary: I have had this router for about a year now and it runs like a clock. It has never dropped a connection and never given me the dreaded network error when I am copying large amounts of data over my network. I copy folders from a Mac that only has a wireless connection to my PC network and even though it might take me a day to complete the copy, it has never failed.
Summary: The router was very easy to program for my particular system, and its operation has been flawless since day one. The increased output power makes the wireless portion of the system work without fail. All in all a very good unit for the price, and just what I needed.
