Pros: Simple to use and you have your choice of Buffalo DD-WRT or Community DD-WRT. Does support 3.0 community builds.
Cons: Lacks support for VLANS. The wireless range is horrible (2.4 and 5G). The only way I can get a good wireless signal is if I am standing next to it. If I move to the room next door (one wall) it drops dramatically. I wish I realized how bad it was within the one month period where I could return it.
Summary: I ordered this model because it said "High Power", but its transmit / receive power is less than my ISP provided wireless router and less than my Linksys WRT54G wireless router. So I have to return it.
Great Product but do not purchase. Wi-Fi will die after a while.

Summary: Great Route but they are defective and the Wi-Fi will eventually die. I purchased one of these 2 years ago and before the warranty ran out the 2.4GHz Wifi radio died. The only way to get it working was to power cycle it. It was replaced and at the same time I purchased a second until for my cabin.
Summary: I was an using an inexpensive Netgear router that was constantly either failing to connect or dropping the connection. Since installing the Buffalo N600 about a month ago, I don't think I have lost the connection once, and the speed is better and more consistent.
Summary: This router is supported by DD-WRT firmware which adds ample more functionality. The stock firmware is a little lackluster. The signal range is decent, about what you would expect from internal attenas
Summary: I had to upgrade my old Linksys router, because my ISP's speeds finally exceeded its capabilities. I had ignored that router for >years<. After a couple of <unacceptable> routers, this Buffalo router finally looks like the one I will be able to ignore for years to come.
Pros: Stable. Flexible. Fast. I like the fact that dd-wrt is installed by default, and that for those who don't want to deal with complexity, the standard firmware is also included. The connection statistics are much nicer than I'm used to - I can see each connection's signal quality and up/down speeds...
Cons: With power and flexibility comes complexity. I think I'm entitled to 'somewhat high' - I've made my own routers from dual-NIC pcs and configured those, but I still needed the auto setup to get this running properly. Other than that, I'm very happy with this router.
Summary: When I switched ISPs at home, the new provider installed a wifi-enabled DSL modem. I used it for about 2 days before I turned off the modem's wifi and hooked up my trusty Buffalo N600 again.
Pros: Buffalo's custom DD-WRT UI is a little simpler than the last community version I used. It was easy to set up and configure and has been very stable. I have used one in my home network for more than a year, and last year I also set up two of them in a client's office to provide wifi coverage from ...
