Summary: This router is typical of my experience Buffalo products. It maintains a solid connection, has great speed, decent administration software, but lacks extensive range. You really have to find the sweet spot in your house if you want total coverage, even on the 2.4 band. However, if you don't need a really long throw, this router keeps a rock solid connection and gives you every bit of the advertised bandwidth.
Summary: Pros: works as advertized. Easy setup, a slam dunk without doing anything. Good user friendly settings in setup menu. Good documentation. Looks good on the desktop. networks without a hitch on two wireless notebooks, two desktops, a server, and two HT-PC's. Fast data transfer, however I have not bench marked it. I love the blue-tooth sync button. Con's: If you want to mount it vertically there are two Micky Mouse feet that fall of with the slightest bump. Bad design.
Quick, Sufficient, lots of configuration options - Less range than my previous router

Summary: I will write this review having come from a mixed background of home devices as well as a professional networking background. First, some information: I've used many wireless devices over the years, most recently the D-Link DIR-655 and Cisco E4200 V1. Both of these devices were sufficient to suit my needs for various situations without being excessively well featured, lacking various things such as VPN endpoint termination or (in the case of the 655) even a 5GHz band.
Summary: Had some trouble setting it up BUT after I called the 24 hour helpline which is in THE USA, it turned up to be a very simple problem just had to restart my modem. They were great and it works well, we have 4 computers and 2 gaming systems we have to run on this router and it does well!!!!
Summary: I decided to buy this router because my existing router was a bt home hub 3 which had signal issue and could not utilise the full fibre speeds. Before I go any further I should let you guys know that wireless AC is still in draft and there are few AC router out there. Recently, we got a HTC one and then a Samsung S4 which both support 802.11ac for super fast wifi. In fact wireless AC promises to give gigabit wifi.
Future proof (802.11ac), cheap, but some work to be done

Summary: This simultaneous dual-band router supports the next generation 802.11ac Gigabit WiFi at the same price as N900 (450+450Mbps) routers! If you need a new router now, e.g. to escape the congestion in 2.4GHz band and move to 5GHz and you were going to buy a N900 router - you could consider this one. Note that unless you have 3-antenna 'n clients (e.g.
