2 out of 5 eggsBetter options out there

Pros: Very good value. Dual band, dual ethernet. Decent throughput. Factory firmware is decent.
American tech support (called at 7:30pm MDT on a Thurs)

Cons: Lackluster signal strength. Dispersion pattern was strange/uneven too.
Must manually power it on after plugging in. Aftermarket firmware couldn't even change this.
Unit started acting up exactly 1 year after I got it. About 2 weeks later, it died. Buffalo tech support was quick to create the RMA (I haven't shipped it off yet)

Other Thoughts: I dropped DD-WRT on here and am actually amazed to say that I wish I hadn't. Aside from being a pain to setup (as DD-WRT wasn't designed to be loaded on this unit) It limited the WiFI to 54Mbps and wouldn't allow me to drop the factory firmware back on.

4 out of 5 eggsPowerful but Complex

Pros: Innumerable features and capabilities. You can do just about anything you want with this unit.

Cons: Difficult to set up, complex menus and quirks

Other Thoughts: I don't know what the previous reviewer did with his unit, but mines has no problem reconnecting to the network if I remove power from the unit. As soon as power is provided to it, it automatically boots up and reconnects to its last network.

1 out of 5 eggsNot a very good device

Pros: Works ok once it is setup

Cons: Not very intuitive for a typical user to setup. The major deal breaker for me is that this device does not power itself back on if there is power loss. This is a huge design flaw. Anytime there is a power hiccup I have to run around the house and power them back on. Major inconvenience and with embedded devices this should be a given.

Other Thoughts: There are much better devices out there for this type of funtionality

3 out of 5 eggsmeh.

Pros: This device has a lot of functions, so you can use it in a number of different ways.

Cons: Setup can be painful. Signal strength isn't great (not surprising given the internal-only antennas). Worst, however, is that the unit does not power up automatically after it loses power. You have to press a button, thus making it useless for anything but end user tabletop operation.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well enough

Pros: I bought this to connect a wired network printer to a wireless network (we've just moved, and there's no good place to put the router that I could connect the printer directly), and it does the job nicely. Instructions were clear, if a little involved.

Cons: Took a few tried to connect to the network, but that was probably me mistyping the passphrase. Took a few tries to adapt to its new IP address.

Other Thoughts: It seems to do what I want it to.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat for an end user, avoid at all costs for anyone else.

Pros: Does 5ghz

Cons: This AP does some wierd stuff to your network connections. I set it up on my network and noticed that I could not connect to my FreeBSD workstation if I was going through this AP. Upon looking at the firewall logs and starting up wireshark it seems to modify the packet headers as they pass through it which caused my FreeBSD workstation to (rightly) drop them as malformed packets.

I'm assuming this was a firmware bug but I was already using the latest firmware at the time (12/2011). This may be fixed now but beware of it if you are looking for a cheap network fix like I was.

This AP would also make network connections to all of the hosts on my network on a lot of the common service ports (21, 20, 3389, 80, etc) I can't explain why it was doing it either I would chalk this up to a firmware bug as well but this just seems like very bad design. (Or some weird network discovery protocol I'm unfamiliar with)

Other Thoughts: I bought and returned this AP about 4-5 months ago so some of the above details may be wrong but I still cannot recommend this access point to anyone who is looking for something to handle anything more complicated than something to watch youtube videos over.

5 out of 5 eggsNICE!

Pros: cheap, small, works, buffalo!

I had a little big problem that I could not get around. None of wireless adapters PCI or USB would work on mine win 7 64bit system, and no one could help me. Microsoft support turned out to be useless, belkin support even worth that microsoft. But I really did not want to downgrade to Vista or XP, yes I do like Win7.
So i bough this little guy and connected it to my PC with the ethernet cable using build in ethernet card. So the only wireless connection that I have is between my (buffalo) router and this little miracle . Works like a charm! No need for cables at all! Modem->router----ethernet converter-> PC. Just follow the manual on the CD and you will be up and running in no time!

Cons: only 2 Ethernet ports.

Other Thoughts: Thanks Buffalo and newegg.

2 out of 5 eggsDoes not turn on after power failure

Pros: Small professional looking design with two ethernet ports and a wall mount plate.

Cons: Device will not automatically power on after a power failure. You will have to climb a ladder and poke it with your finger or a long stick if you mount it as the designed plate suggests, on a ceiling or wall.

Other Thoughts: Not being able to set the device to power on after a power failure is a deal breaker for me. I intended to mount them on ceiling mounted projectors and climbing up to power them on just isn't an option.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very versatile! Can connect laptop with WIFI or use second ethernet port if you need extra security. Small size. Once set up, just plug in power cord and ethernet cable and it is ready to use within minutes. Easy encryption set up! Works well with IPhone(?)

Cons: Would like it to be even smaller for travel! Could not get IPhone to work initial because unit comes preset not to accept "n" protocol. Had to manually set for all. Needs updated firmware to resolve this issue.

Other Thoughts: I needed an access point for hotel rooms so that I could use both my laptop for work and IPhone for Skype calls. The unit has worked extremely well in Asian hotels. I have yet to try it in Europe. Why it is preset for 802.11 a/b is beyond reason. My IPhone worked only when I manual set unit to accept all protocols. I do not think IPhones work with 802.11 a. I'm not sure if IPad does, either. If not familiar with manually setting up WIFI router, this may have been difficult. To be fair, the instruction manual did explain how to get into the unit and tweek settings. Still, that is why I rate it four instead of five stars.

2 out of 5 eggsThey must've laid-off their Technical Writer

Pros: Price

Cons: My beef is with the lack of decent documentation. _Nowhere_, in either the CD or printable documentation, are there any instructions for setting up the device for the purpose in mind. For example, I purchased the unit to connect two ethernet-wired printers to it so I can send my print jobs wirelessly. Would it have killed the Tech Writer to have written one or two pages of easy-to-follow instructions for a typical set-up? I shouldn't have to hire or consult with an SME to perform such a "simple" task.

The unit may work gangbusters once it's set up, but back to the store it'll go; if I have to struggle and be frustrated because of a lack of decent documentation it's not worth it.
