1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

Pros: Buffalo technology, I have purchased a many models of buffalo routers.

Cons: This router does not perform as per the internal software NAT translation. It will display web pages as text only. My 300 and 600 series do great but this 1750 is pure JUNK!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good shape - it is small so you can stash it in tiny places. The built quality feels top notch. 1GB Ethernet ports so I can stream trans-coded video to my ps3 without any lag.

Cons: 5GhZ WiFi is weak. The walls of my house is made out of red wood so it is pretty thin. I can only get about signal within about 100 feet.

No IPv6. I keep expecting them to update the software for IPv6 support.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it is a very good router for under $100.

2 out of 5 eggsFor Pros only, give it a pass

Pros: Fast, range is good

Cons: Almost everything else. Bad documentation, poor customer support, difficult setup, very limited NAS capability that is not documented. Documentation is ridiculously poor even online and tech support is unhelpful.

Other Thoughts: Probably great for all the reasons that everyone else says but if you are trying to setup a simple home network with a large 4TB drive connected by USB as a NAS don't bother. Buffalo tech support indicates that 2TB is as high as you can go, and you have to reformat it using their software (even if its FAT32). This is undocumented.

5 out of 5 eggsRouter is Awesome

Pros: The features on the this router are endless, but then again it is using the awesome dd-wrt os. Which in itself is an amazing open source os for any router. This router is easy to setup for a novice and a skilled networker. I especially like the dual core cpu it makes for faster internet web-surfing. Setup of the usb print port was nice an easy.

Cons: The range of the 5ghz wireless is a bit lacking at distances.

Other Thoughts: For the price point and features you get. You can't beat it

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Router, Excellent Price

Pros: Powerful Hardware
DD-WRT Support
Price (vs. other routers with similar specs)
Gigabit LAN and WAN
USB 2.0 and 3.0
Sleek and sturdy design
Can stream 25+Mbps 1080p HD video 20ft through plaster walls without stuttering (300Mbps @ 5Ghz).
25% faster then my old Linksys WRT610N using the same laptop with a 300Mbps 802.11N connection at 5Ghz.

Cons: Runs a little hot, but it does pack an 800Mhz ARMv7 dual-core SoC, which is on par with many tablets/Cell phones available today.

Other Thoughts: though they are a tad high, the cpu temperature does stay fairly constant, even under heavy load.
Even though it supports DD-WRT, you have to search the forum to find out where to get the proper files to flash, because there is no device page (as of 06/03/2014).
The official Buffalo DD-WRT firmware for the WZR-1750DHPD is compatible, but you have to flash to DD-WRT first to load it.
haven't tested the AC functionality yet, as I don't have any AC wireless devices

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT ROUTER

Pros: If you are regular user, like me, you would install the latest version of the stable firmware available on the manufacture's support site, however if you want to make this router capable to compete with any $2000.00 router install OpenWrt and make this router rock solid device

Cons: not at all

5 out of 5 eggsbumpy start but great router

Pros: This router is fast....I do not use AC connection.

boots really fast...and has power switch.

80Mhz...that is all that is needed to be said.

Cons: before the v2.13 release...there were bugs listed by other newegg reviewers..however since version v2.13 this router is very stable and 5gHz works always..no reboots as repeater in WDS mode.

The N connection could be stronger as someone else mentioned the N signal is not in the green region, it hangs in the high yellow region of my smart phone app meter, at near distance from router...but this is not real issue on my network...

Other Thoughts: If you don't need AC connection, with the latest software, this model is great...I admit the documentation was late, and the firmware was buggy but the router is really really fast and reliable with the latest firmware.

5 out of 5 eggsFast Router

Pros: This router has really, really fast wireless. I honestly just thought all wireless was slow and didn't know what I was missing until I got this. The signal strength is rock solid, goes much further than my old d-link, and did I mention it is fast??? I really upgraded it to get a more solid signal strength and the gigabit lan for my wired connections. I certainly am not disappointed.

Cons: None yet. It is larger than my old router, that is about it.

Other Thoughts: As soon as I set it up, i followed the manufacturers recommendations shown in other posts to maximize the signal strength as well as to upgrade the firmware. I would recommend the same for anyone else purchasing this router.

1 out of 5 eggsWZR-1750DHP - What year is it 1999?

Pros: Lets see: pretty light colors, range seems rather good if you get into the settings and know what you are changing and why.

It arrived with firmware v2.10 first thing was to upgrade via the user interface to v2.13 – that went smoothly (I took the time to move this device to a UPS power source just in case there was a power failure or other glitch). v2.13 per the release notes, fixes a bunch of stuff but the security issue below is not one of them!

The user interface has several panels that make it friendly to users with limited experience. You can get done what you need to get done on these panels. If you are more experienced or simply want to learn go to the last panel and search the net for this settings there so you understand what you are changing before you change it.

Buffalo offers a control on power output for each band which is different than some of the others I have seen. It is offered in increments of 25% to 100%. This is probably more user friendly than decibels, which most users probably have not taken the time to learn about.

Cons: What year is it 1999? Well my calendar says it is March 2014 – this router is a super major disappointment for it is LACKING a secure vpn protocol What does it have? PPTP! Yep, the ONLY protocol on this device is one that has been cracked, even Microsoft has basically said MOVE ON, we all know how slow (if ever) Microsoft is to address security problems. Widely reported as of October 2012, PPTP is considered cryptographically broken. October 2012 at least 10 months before this device hit the market.

Buffalo KINDLY update the firmware adding OPENVPN and add a check box warning the user about PPTP or better yet remove PPTP completely. I suppose you could make the inferior protocol available but ask the user to flash a different firmware that has PPTP after they sign off on a waiver acknowledging they are on their own and could be hacked, as being hacked takes less than a day. Buffalo why are you putting your customers at risk, do you secretly dislike them? Seriously please make this a priority to revise this device's firmware adding openvpn.

For now, I need an additional router that supports OPENVPN to put between the WZR-1750DHP and my cable modem, or just let the kids use this high end device on their network, what a waste. I expected more from a company with a reputation like Buffalo's. This is a higher end device that a serious security flaw! Till it is fixed – Beware!

Other Thoughts: Users if you are using the AOSS AirStation One-Touch Secure System – reconsider, as this put you at significant risk of being cracked open. Easily done by children whose age in years is single digits. Router makers should default this to off – or better yet eliminate it completely.

Also – anyone thinking of changing the firmware to DD-WRT – please check into this subject before trying, I say trying as Buffalo (to their credit) has a notice on their website stating they are having issues that result in what I would describe as bricking this device. Basically it stops working and is then useful for holding papers down on a desk from being blown away by the wind and not much else.
