Summary: I purchased the WZR-D1800H when it first came out and it has been a total dissapointment. If all your wireless equipment are in the same room this router will work for you. My 5 year old D link router has 4x the distance of this unit. I have a 2 story house and this router is in the upstairs corner bedroom. My computer is in the next room and can only get 50% or less on the 5ghz band and 60% signal strength on the 2.4 band.
Summary: I bought this router to replace my Netgear router. In judging the Buffalo by the price, compared to that of the Netgear, I expected it to work a lot better but unfortunately it does not even come close to the cheaper Netgear. Too bad I had sold the Netgear already..Live and learn.
Summary: After my Netgear N900 router died ( another review to come later) I bought this Buffalo wireless router. I have a Buffalo NAS that I like a lot and this had pretty good reviews, so I bought it, but I don't think mine works all that well. Never had any Buffalo devices before my NAS I decided to give it a try. I have it located on the second floor of my house but I only get 2 bars on my laptop in the kitchen on the first floor.

Summary: The original firmware is very basic, you can only setup a few settings, i only use it with N band (2.4 and 5Ghz) and iam not happy with the throughput (only 10MB/s on a Laptop with dual N network card), any cheaper N router does work like this. iam waiting for the partner Multimedia Bridge to use the AC band and justify spend 160$ on this. - The USB port only read HDD with XFS and FAT File system.
Summary: Bought this unit to replace a Linksys WRT54G. First unit I received was dead on arrival as diagnosed by Buffalo Technical support. A replacement unit sent by Amazon was easily set up and demonstrated significantly faster transfers through my network between my two computers. Wireless signal was improved across my admittedly small apartment.
