2 out of 5 eggsNot reliable

Pros: Comes with DR-WRT

Cons: After 6 months I cant keep this router up. Any significant amount of data transfer makes the LAN side not route.

1 out of 5 eggsIt's great while it works

Pros: DD-WRT, easy to set up, aesthetically pleasing

Cons: Failing after a few months

Other Thoughts: My N300 started to fail 3 months after purchasing it. It would randomly drop the WAN for unknown reasons (oddly, the LAN and wireless would maintain a connection just fine to the router), becoming more frequent as time went on. I thought it was the cable modem, but after trying a back-up router, I was convinced the modem wasn't the issue.

I went through the RMA process and sent the router back to Buffalo. A week later, they left a message saying I needed to send them the proof of purchase. The receipt was attached to the RMA paperwork which was included inside the package. For whatever reason, this wasn't acceptable and they needed a copy of it emailed to them, even when the actual receipt was in their possession. AYFKM?

Lessoned learned: Take a photo of everything before you RMA anything... and I'm not buying any of their products again.

5 out of 5 eggsWhere the buffaloes roam

Pros: Easy set up
good construction

Cons: Very small form factor, making it odd to place in certain environments. Although we do use these for some small business clients I think it is best for end users to small businesses no more than 10.

Other Thoughts: Buffalo has always performed well for us in any environment and has exceeded my expectations time and again.

3 out of 5 eggsDiscouraged

Pros: I gave it 3 stars because it has the potential with DD-WRT to be a nice feature rich router, price

Cons: Signal strength. I got a bad router.

Other Thoughts: I tried this product on two different networks. I first tried it on a network with an existing gateway router with DHCP. I had the Air station auto detect the network configuration. At first it found the other router and set itself to AP mode, but it did not turn off DHCP and was handing out ip addresses in the wrong range. After several attempts I got it to work properly. After 4 days it switched back to passing out IP addresses again. I manual set the switch to AP mode still could not get it to turn off DHCP so I manually turned it off in the software. The air station pulled an ip address from the gateway of but continued even with DHCP turned off in the software to hand out IP addresses in 192.168.11.X
I tired the air station on a network with no existing gateway. I manually programed the router this time for PPOE provider I was able to get the router connected and pulled a WAN ip but could never see the internet with any of the computers.

Waiting for RMA. If replacement has problems then Buffalo will not be on my router list.

2 out of 5 eggsConnectivity problems and no tech support

Pros: Inexpensive, comes with dd-wrt installed

Cons: Won't connect to my laptop. The laptop connects to my old WRT54GS running dd-wrt just fine. It connects to an old Cicso E1000 just fine. The Buffalo router won't connect to the laptop, but will connect to other devices.

Tech support took 6 weeks to respond, with several attempts made to get support. Their response is "its not the router and we can't help you".

If you do buy it, make sure it works with all devices and return it immediately if it doesn't.

1 out of 5 eggsPOOR customer support

Pros: When it works, it worked great

Cons: Started having a problem where it would randomly stop working for wired and wireless after almost 1 year of use. I decided to look for a firmware upgrade. I tried the built-in "check for upgrades" button in the software, and it says "Error retrieving update information". I tried their website, and could not locate this model number on their website. I decided to use their online customer support ticket option to inquire about my problem. They finally emailed me after 2 days and asked if I purchased it in the US, and told me I needed to contact the US support division, with a link that was EXACTLY the same link I had already used to register the support ticket the first time. I don't know if their website is simply messed up, or what, but this is POOR customer service. Instead of FORWARDING my ticket to the proper support division, or finding the answer and providing it, they decided to close the ticket and leave me hanging. No problem, lesson learned, no more Buffalo products for me or those I support. If you decide to use them, you better hope you never need support.

5 out of 5 eggsNice!

Pros: Fast, nice firmware, good price. Bought many several for many jobs at many environments and not one crash.

Open source firmware allows plenty of advanced functions.

Cons: none I can think of...

Other Thoughts: Moron reviewers need to read what these routers can do and what it comes with. Don't give it one egg if it doesn't come with ice cream or warm up your bottle for you cry babies.

Also - the switch on the back is a VERY cool feature. It's not tech support's fault, or Buffalo's problem if you don't understand the difference between "bridging" and "routing". There is an old tech expression called RT-M. If you don't know something, simply admit it and read the manual.

For under $50 it is a fantastic router. Thanks Buffalo and Newegg!

1 out of 5 eggsBlocks Google Hangout

Pros: Seems to work

Cons: I can't use Google hangout with this router. I can see video and hear audio. I can speak and the other parties will hear me. But they will never see my video. This is across all devices. I've tried opening ports and using DMZ zone. Nothing. Only when I plug the computer directly into the internet does it work. I emailed tech support. Zero response.

3 out of 5 eggsSleek and featureful little thing

Pros: Comes with dd-wrt

Cons: Crashes ever more frequently in my environment-- two wired Ubuntu 12.04 computers, two wireless Ubuntu 12.04 computers, 3 or more Android devices at any given time.. Can't upgrade the firmware because it's not documented online at all.. I've found firmwares for a similar model, the wzr-300HP, but "close enough" isn't exactly the motto of firmware flashing. So basically, the only reason I bought it gave rise to my only complaint with it.
...I'd appreciate much more documentation on firmware updates for this.

Other Thoughts: The dynamic DNS support is really helpful, and really awesome. I'm using afraid for ddns now, and it's quite novel.

4 out of 5 eggsNice unit, typical range

Pros: Easy to configure as a wireless-to-wireless repeater using step-by-step instructions downloaded separately from dd-wrt website. Allows me to move around the house while maintaining connectivity.

Many other configuration possibilities.

Cons: Range was similar and no better than other wireless routers that I've owned. Buffalo does sell a directional hi-gain antenna which could help, I'd consider trying that some day.
