Summary: Range improved from G router by about 10%. Not as stable as WRT56G with dd-wrt. seems to drop internet connection average about 1000 hours. VPN connection works, but with some limits, doesn't see the network slugs and their drives.
Summary: I had a D link DIR 655 that would run for over a year without requiring a reset. This buffalo router has a non intuitive interface and requires a reset every couple of weeks or so. It's range on the 2ghz band is also not as robust as my older router.
Summary: I used this router to replace a Linksys E3200 that wasn't cutting it streaming high def video wirelessly. Pros: -It's fast. With the router/bridge pair I get between 4x-5x increase in speed (1 mbps -> 4.5 mbps). -Easy to setup. Tap the buttons on the router and the bridge and they're paired.
Summary: Four issues so far: 1. After changing the admin password I cannot log in. Turns out the router only supports weak 8 character passwords 2. No-DDWRT Support (amazon specs are incorrect) 3. No WDS Bridging and Repeating (amazon specs are incorrect) 4. No vpn client support
Summary: Like most routers these days, you needed to upgrade the firmware to the latest version before getting setup (just make sure you download the firmware before disconnecting your old router). It’s a large unit, but the stand that is supplied is a little unsteady.
