Don't bother with Buffalo Air Station!

Laurie Lindsey, Amazon
19 October 2013
  • Summary: I found this item to be almost unusable except in very specific situations. It's very difficult to configure. I've basically given up on it. I would not recommend this item to anyone. A complete waste of money!

  • Summary: Does not do what it advertises. Support is incompetent. Stay away from this product if it is still being sold.

WLAE-AG300N will not connect to WZR-D1800H

Tony-A, Amazon
12 October 2012
  • Summary: Tried to connect the Buffalo WLAE-AG300N to a Buffalo WZR-D1800H on the 5 GHz band as a Client(EC)and kept getting a sold green Wireless LED and a double blink Green Status LED. Was informed that WDS didn't work, loaded all the latest firmware updates even Beta 1.88 for the AP -- still the same -- sent documentation to buffalo still no answer. What do I think?

Better options available.

Jeremy, Amazon

  • Summary: Preferring users set up an access point with a CD is incredibly backwards today. Many PCs do not have optical drives now. There are also multiple OSs that a user may have, and today's access point better be aware of that. My N300 simply never got working. Regardless of what I tried, I could never get to the setup page.

Unreliable and poor software

Zenon "Accumulator", Amazon
14 January 2012
  • Summary: 3/4/12 - Update - It's been returned. I thought it would be okay, but it seemed intermittent in operation with no real way to tell how well it's functioning on "dumb" units like BluRay and Receivers other than lots of dropouts. It might be good for others, but not me. I've gone the powerline extender route via a pair of Western Digital LiveWire units.

Tragic design flaw when power fails mars otherwise useful device

Roy Ivy III, Amazon
27 July 2011
  • Summary: Setup of the WLAE-AG300N as a bridge device was easy using the included software, and performance was good. HOWEVER, the the engineering department that decided that a network device should require human intervention to recover from a power failure needs remedial training. Network devices must be designed for minimum intervention and must automatically correct for usual events (such as occasional power failures).

Bufflo wireless Converter

Dana D, Amazon
11 February 2011
  • Summary: I could not get this unit to work for me. I spent hours and hours online at Buffalo trying to get this set up to connect my DirecTv box in my bedroom to the internet. I even tried all 3 of the setup possibilities...no good. I ended up going out and buying a netgear WNCE2001 internet wireless adapter which got me connected to the internet is about 10 minutes! Bottom line is I think I'll stick with Netgear.

another poorly thought out design

SB1, Amazon
5 January 2011
  • Summary: I didn't even bother finishing the setup of this thing. It has a power switch on it that has to be pressed after a power outage and that alone gives it an F in my book. I was hoping to use a number of these as access points around the house but there is no way I am going to get out a ladder and turn them on individually after every outage. I can't believe the products that get released sometimes.

OUCH

Riding, Amazon
31 December 2010
  • Summary: NEW Bought this item to connect to a Dish DVR & Panisonic DMP-BD 655 Blu-ray player.(The Dish Tech tried using a Sling Jack to connect the DVR to the Router, no connection. He then added another device to increase connectivity no luck. Maybe it was the circuits in my home?) I followed the instructions and got two green lights on the unit that indicates connections through my PC. When trying to connect the devices they would not connect.

Un buon prodotto ma.......

bigcheese, Ciao
17 July 2011
  • Summary: Ho acquistato questo prodotto, Convertitore Ethernet WiFi-N AirStation Nfiniti Dual Band WLAE-AG300N, perchè leggendo le caratteristiche sembrava facesse al caso mio, dovevo solo convertire una telecamera IP in WiFi, con molte difficoltà ci sono risucito anche perchè non è veramente solo convertitore client-WiFi, ma è soprattutto un Access Point. Sono risucito a installarlo come convertitore, anche se ad esempio da un portatile viene visto come AP.
  • Pros: tutto quanto il wifi prevede è perfettamente funzionante
  • Cons: pulsante di accensione invece di un interruttore, in mancanza rete elettrica non si riaccende
