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.

1 out of 5 eggsBufflo WZR-1750DHP

Pros: none

Cons: The product comes without manual, and insufficient installation guide. Once powered on it try to connect to the web provider, if it is not connected, you can not continue.
As there is no manual you should guess the password.
Tech support respond quickly, but they do not have any knowledge, ending up wasting your time. The second level tech knows the product, but they might call you the next day.
As for the product, once configured, you might see 3 bars, and get connected, but can not access the web. the Guest account does not work, no web access (tech recommended to download and look at the useless manual).
Configure it as an access point, is tricky, and if not done, in the right way, you loose the ability to control the unit.
There are many similar products that works, buy something else

Other Thoughts: I got it for the price, the high gain wireless, and ability for main wireless network, and separate guest w

5 out of 5 eggsRock Solid

Pros: Rock Solid, good performance. Good GUI, easy to setup and secure. Firmware updating is very easy and highly recommended. See the manufacturer replies to some of the bad reviews and follow Buffalo's advise in the settings

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have not had to reboot the router in over 6 months, great for a non-enterprise product.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Router our Office has had!

Pros: Great range for wireless. Great traffic handling and VOIP call quality.

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: We replaced a d-link router in our office. This router is excellent with fast internet through a 100x15 broadband connection. Wireless range is much farther than the old (only a year) D-Link. Also love the fact that it has NEVER required rebooting in several months unlike our old router. We are running 5 computers and 5 VOIP phones combined and have had SMOOTH sailing!

2 out of 5 eggsTRUST THE BAD REVIEWS.

Pros: Price. (Got it for $89.99)

N speed is Crazy Fast and N range is awesome (too bad I bought this for AC)

Cons: I bough this router for my kids pcs. I didn't want to run copper to each room, so I thought this would be my best bet. USB3 AC Nics. The router is in the middle upstairs bedroom (my office and the only upstairs Cat6 jack) My kids rooms are both right next door. Drywall and air separate the rooms (my house was built in 1995 so no lead paint either.)

The AC signal strength is so weak it's faster to use N???

I've been an I.T. SysAdmin for 15 years. I am also a certified Cisco Network Professional. Just stating this to prove that I SHOULD know a little more about networking than your average consumer. That being said, I was COMPLETELY disappointed with this AC router. I read the other terrible review and just though, MEH, maybe they didn't really give it a chance. Well I have, and I can confirm AC sucks. Again, N, is wicked awesome for Range and Speed, but I bought this router for AC!!!

Firmware is the latest and greatest as of 1/19/2014.

I've locked it down to AC only. -- STILL SUCKS
I've updated the firmware -- STILL SUCKS
I've put the router (via a LONG network cable) in the SAME ROOM as my sons computer -- STILL SUCKS

I'm going to try and RMA back to newegg and pick up a NETGEAR AC router. My neighbor (an ACTUAL Network Admin) swears by NETGEAR.

To ANYONE who wants a REALLY fast N router for the PRICE of an AC router. Look no further!! BUT, if you actually want a fast AC router DO NOT BUY THIS THING.

Other Thoughts: Buffalo you had me at PRICE but treated me like a baby treats a diaper. It's time for us to part ways..

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for purchasing our product and leaving a review. In regards to the reported inadequate range, there are various settings that can be easily changed to significantly improve performance.

The BUFFALO router you purchased is Dual Band, meaning there are two radios. To ensure you have optimal range, please adjust the following settings by logging in to the router’s UI and adjusting the Wireless LAN settings as follows:

- 5 GHz Settings: Disable Auto Channel Selection, and use a channel between 149 and 161. The lower channels (36 – 48) are limited by US law to 50mW. The higher channels are limited to 1000mW. This setting alone can have significant impact to your wireless range and performance in 5 GHz.
- 2.4 GHz Settings: Disable Auto Channel Selection, and use a more central channel such as Channels 3-9 (assuming there is not significant interference on the channel from other networks). The lower and higher channels, most notably channels 1 and 11 often require power settings to be lowered intentionally to reduce out-of-band interference as required by US law. Also, changing the Bandwidth setting from 40 Mhz wide to 20 MHz wide can improve total emitted power by up to 3 dbm which may further increase range.

We hope these settings can help to address some of the concerns you had. If you have any additional questions please email newegg@buffalotech.com.

2 out of 5 eggsnot worth at all

Pros: features

Cons: drop signal frequently, short distance

Other Thoughts: bought this expensive router in hope for greater distance and faster internet but i was wrong. Signal dropped few a day. 5 Ghz signal is so weak at 25ft away and 3 walls indoor while 2Ghz. signal has 1-2 bars. Updated to ver 2.13 didn't help. I don't have AC 1750 adapters but bought this router for future upgrade. I regret. I should have returned this router. I would not recommend this router to anyone because it's not reliable. My cheap old wireless N US Robotics never drops signal.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate to previous.

Pros: GUI is nice and very easily navigable to a newby. Handles 8+ wireless devices nicely and 2 wired as well.
All in all this thing is fast both on the 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz N bands, No hiccups with this Update.

Cons: None
Be Sure To Update To 2.13

Other Thoughts: After trial and error I waited for a newer firmware version to come out ( 2.13 ) and this Update really fixed some issues. Though it will still not transmit AC it is still fast on the N band.
All in all, it is still a pretty new router (i think) and as more Firmware updates come, it gets better.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Easy setup. Similar interface to my previous Buffalo that gave me years of service
Stable.
VPN Server
dual band

Cons: Takes some time to reconfigure.
No external antennas
A little bulky

Other Thoughts: This unit replaced my Buffalo N router. The wireless on that one started to act flaky and I had this one sitting in my closet just waiting. Like the Dual bands. iPad mini and iPhone 5s go on 5Ghz channel
