1 out of 5 eggsWarranty Not Good

Pros: It was good for over a year without any problems, except recently I had to reboot router twice a day.

Cons: I have a home office and they want to replace it by me sending the product back first and not being able to work for two weeks while they send a new one. So they obviously want you to buy a new one if you have a need everyday to be productive. In essence there is no warranty!!

4 out of 5 eggsReally?

Pros: DD WRT is probably the most powerful home grade small scale router operating system on the market today. It is even more powerful on the high powered routers out there. Its also a plus that the lowest grade radios in a buffalo are still better then the ones used in the entry level Netgear D-link and Linksys routers. This difference blurs at the top end of these other brands however.

Cons: Our house uses Sheetrock over plywood in all its walls (every wall is basically 2 sheets sheetrock 2 sheets .5inch plywood and fibergass insulation) Had to mount this in the attic and reroute a few of the ethernet cables in the house to get full signal strength around the entire house. If your house is this unusual your signal will suffer.

Other Thoughts: Just bought this, but I noticed after the fact a grievous error in their advertisement. The following line is present in the overview section: "Allow friends and family to use the internet without keeping your personal devices secure" This is found under the guest network section. Really? WITHOUT keeping my personal devices safe? OK then. Minus one egg for poor PR quality control.

3 out of 5 eggsI wasted way too much time and money

Pros: The only pros are a small form factor, DDWRT and removable antennas.

Cons: Really bad range and you can't fix it. Trust me. I purchased 2, I purchased the optional directional antenna. I played with every setting in every version of the firmware. Tried multiple antennas. Unless range isn't an issue for you, forget this router. I wasted way too much time and money on these. I picked up neighborhood routers almost as good as these in my own home. Add in stability issues when wireless throuput is too high for too long and you've got a terrible product that they should have yanked from the market long ago.

Other Thoughts: I purchased a highly rated competitive product for not too much more and all my problems disappeared. The range is easily 2X - 3X better and I get simultaneous dual band, a gigabit switch and 2 shareable USB ports for the few extra bucks. This router is as bad as the original WRT-HP-54G was good. That model still outperforms this one. I hate to so thoroughly trash a product but this completely deserves it. I am an idiot for not throwing in the towel on this product a long time ago.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Customization

Pros: It is a great router for people that want a high level of customization in their router.

Cons: The only disadvantage I have found is simply the ease-of-use of the DD-WRT firmware.

5 out of 5 eggsPleased

Pros: These, even before getting directional antennas for them, were able to bridge the gap between buildings that my client needed to cover---a 100 ft span with line of sight. Add to that the ability to connect easily with Android, and the small size, and you've got a good product. Gigabit, also, which should be industry standard. Your wired connections should ALWAYS outperform your wireless.

Cons: Product is light enough to be easily jostled, rattled, and banged around. Had to switch the flip-switch to "ON" instead of "AUTO," which really shouldn't even be a choice. WLAN should not be something that switches off when it doesn't think you're using it, because who knows when you'll need it or if that will be an emergency. The power saved is simply too minuscule to worry about.

Other Thoughts: Initially attempted a WPS setup. Don't bother. WPS seems like a feature that time forgot. Wireless Bridge or Wireless Repeater modes will have to do, because even setting it up "right" with so many verification my head spun, WPS still did not function. Not deducting an egg, though, because the other modes worked fine.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat router once flashed

Pros: Excellent, stable router, but only when flashed with non-Buffalo builds of dd-wrt. Hardware is robust with plenty of RAM and a strong broadcast signal (20dBm out of the box).

Cons: Stock firmware dropped the WAN port connection on any update of software settings (and I mean any update, even adjustments not related at all to the WAN connection). Only reestablished WAN connection after router was fully rebooted. Release / renew of WAN IP did not function.

That said, I did not have this issue even one time after flashing to an updated dd-wrt build. In my case at least this issue was completely due to the stock Buffalo dd-wrt build.
