Summary: I bought this a few months ago and the router just works... perfectly. It's basically plug and play, and the firewall built in is very good... it has stopped me from going to the bad websites a couple times now... I'm virus free and it allows my kids to download on the playstation while I download what ever game I am using on my PC. I play several MMO games and they all perform well using this router. It's a great unit at a good price.
Summary: I originally had the airstation N600 WZR-600DHP that got bricked on a firmware update. I loved that unit and the fact that it used DDWRT. I sent it in on a warranty claim and Buffalo sent me this router as a replacement. Kudos to them for sending me the new upgraded router. Or so I thought. This new router does not use DDWRT and cannot sustain any wifi connections at all. The just drop right and left with no consistency at all.
Summary: Better than I ever expected in this price range. I was just wanting to end the constant rebooting of my old wireless router. This unit is not only stable, but it handles switches flawlessly while giving everyone access to storage. It was easy to set up and configure as well. Excellent WIFI range for the hot spot with security for the network, and access to storage without giving up a port. I'd buy this again in a heartbeat.
Summary: Fast and easy setup. Firmware is based on DD-WRT and seems to retain most of the DD-WRT functionality without adding a lot of arbitrary "bloat" or changes. If you do not know what DD-WRT is, do not let that shy you away: it's still an easy-to-set-up router. Seems to have pretty good range, and the gigabit ports are nice.
Summary: The hardware seems great. You must download the manual..Which assumes thorough knowledge of routers. I Still after a month have not gotten the USB to work properly. Recommend the product but there should be an optional Manual for those of us who need a step by step installation instructions without technical jargon, or a good chat option to get help readily when we run into a wall trying to install.
Summary: I was looking for a decent router for my new home network. I settled on this due to the dual band and USB sharing. I was first let down due to the firmware. It's uses a Buffalo flavored DD-WRT which is a bit more restrictive. (I can set OpenDNS as my DNS server through an internet connection tab, but not through DDNS for instance as DDNS is restricted to DynDNS and TZO.
Good router, but beware: No longer using DD-WRT firmware

Summary: Unlike the WZR-600DHP, which is one of the best available routers for running OpenWRT or DD-WRT, the WZR-600DHP2 is presently unsupported by OpenWRT and only supported by DD-WRT using an unofficial prerelease build. This means that if you're thinking of buying this router for a use case wherein you'd need to run custom software (in my case, doing separately-configured tunneling/encapsulation for hardware on the WAN port vs the LAN ports while running a wireless bridge),...
Summary: I purchased this router 6 weeks ago. Setting up was fine, however after only a month the router randomly lost All settings and had to be setup again. I did this the first time and thought it would be a one-time occurrence. Unfortunately, it happened many times after. I spent hours trying to get it to keep the settings but it kept losing all settings and had to reconfigure, then the router started resetting itself every 15 minutes.
