5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: Inexpensive, functional, doesn't lose wireless connection randomly like my old router did...

Cons: The instructions are lacking. You're better off not using them at all. There's no way to change the SSID.

Other Thoughts: Like I said, the router works great. It offers more than I expect from most technologies.

1 out of 5 eggsGet what you pay for

Pros: Dual band was pretty nice

Cons: Where should I start... Well, first. I couldnt get the DMZ to work at all which was almost a deal breaker by itself. I had a linksys e1200 that this was supposed to replace. DMZ on it worked flawlessly. I have a minecraft server that I run out of my home and without DMZ its worthless. SO, I then decided to try to get the dd-wrt version buffalo offers. No dice, they only give that out to the EU users. The ddwrt forums offered nothing firmware wise either. Even with the stock firmware updated it was still having problems. Then the connection drops came. It would randomly reset connections. Never in my life have I come across a router so picky. Half the time the config page wouldnt even load and it would display error 400. I would have to refresh 5-10 times before it would respond again.

Other Thoughts: The radios seem solid but the firmware controlling it is absolute trash and without dd-wrt its a fancy looking brick. Buffalo dropped the ball on this one and now I'm out 11.30 in shipping to RMA this junk. The speed was great, just every other thing you want in a router it totally failed at.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, dependable router.

Pros: Dependable, dual-band Wi-Fi router. Flexible configuration; easy to convert to an access point.
This replaces a WNDR3700 which worked well for 3 years before getting flaky.
I made this a Wi-Fi access point and use a UTM as my primary router.

Cons: Only 100Mbps Ethernet ports. The WPS took several tries with Wi-Fi printers. I found it easier to just enter the KEY with some devices.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this to anyone needing an inexpensive dual band router as long as the 100Mb ports are not an issue for you. This could be a great 5 Egg router with Gigabit ports.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, reliable router

Pros: I purchased this after the wifi on my 8 year old linksys router suddenly died, and the admin panel was giving me errors. So far, the built in Buffalo firmware is pretty good. The router does support DD-WRT, but I haven't tried that yet. 5 ghz support is also another advantage if your devices support it.

Cons: It does have a vpn server but it only supports PPTP and even then, it doesn't support encryption.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy and Reliable

Pros: Easy to set up. Strong signal.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: My old router was having trouble connecting to my TV. This one worked right out of the box. I was connected with no problems in just a few minutes, and I don't have any more connectivity problems.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Router - One Caveat

Pros: Great wireless throughput compared to Linksys and Netgear similarly priced routers I replaced with this. Easily max out the 100Mbps WAN port over 5Ghz. Good coverage and stable with 1.50 firmware, except for one caveat (see Cons).

Cons: One problem I've run into is sometimes the router's DNS server gets overloaded. This can cause the router to become unresponsive. To fix it go to WAN/LAN -> LAN -> Display Advance Settings -> and Specify the IP for DNS servers. I use OpenDNS and and I've yet to have a problem again. I've subtracted one egg because of this.

Also keep in mind that this router doesn't support IPv6 with stock firmware and has 100Mbps WAN and LAN ports.

Other Thoughts: If you want IPv6 you'll need to flash it to DD-WRT and if you have an internet connection faster than 100Mbps the WAN/LAN ports will be limiting. However, this router is stable. It's much more stable than the other two routers I've used in this same location, and it looks nice too. It may be a little bit difficult to configure for some novices, but really it's not that hard if you know the basics. Coverage has been as good if not slightly better than other routers I've tried. I'd recommend it.

3 out of 5 eggsRouter software is awful

Pros: * dd-wrt firmware capable
* the hardware works just fine

Cons: Software, even with the latest updates, is terrible. It has bugs everywhere. Setting up a static ip address, setting up wifi with WPA2, and setting a router password took upwards of 2 hours.

Other Thoughts: There are much better choices out there. Even on sale, this isn't worth it.

5 out of 5 eggsN Capable & Gaming On A Budget!!

Pros: *Small in stature - easy to tuck away / Position
*Great Connectivity
*Absolutely Solid Reliability!
*Great Features and good range!!
*Throughput is excellent!

Cons: *It's small - depends on how you look at it
*User Interface is no where near as nice as it's bigger brother the AirStation 1750 - but still navigable.

Other Thoughts: Purchased for a friend of mine who was on a budget to get as much connectivity as she could without breaking the bank. As I have been over the moon with my AirStation Extreme I figured the little brother should do a very good job as well. And it does!

For years now this friend and I could never connect on Xbox Live. We'd always have to have a friend invite us to a match, but could never host / connect directly. However, the problem seemed to develop out of no where, along with her Lag & randomly dropped connection. As we used to play online with no problems. We concluded it was her Belkin router had to finally start kicking the bucket. She stated it was 7 or 8 years old by now so... Finally she had enough and asked for help and after a bit of research I settled on the Buffalo AirStation N600. Was a great bet!!

Not only has her NAT status upgraded to Open on all Xbox Live games she's had great wireless performance (as her Xbox was in the basement, router upstairs) and tells me her other devices have a stronger connection as well. She's excited to be able to game with friends again, and it didn't cost her an arm & a leg.

Here are some stats from when I tested & configured the router before shipping it to her.

Living Room -38 dBm (10ft from router)
17Mbps Download / 4.5Mbps Upload

Bedroom Bathroom -74 dBm (50ft away - most walls) 11Mbps / 4.5 Upload

End of Driveway -84 dBm (100ft from router) 2.5Mbps Download / 4.0Mbps Upload

So range and throughput for a 40 dollar router... I'm impressed. This is going to be my new defacto recommendation for users / gamers looking to upgrade. Great Job Buffalo!!! We can now resume shooting at each other over Xbox Live!! :)

5 out of 5 eggsFast and Powerful

Pros: Runs great on DD-WRT. Easy to configure if you flash to DD-WRT upon install. Has a very strong signal and does not have buffer lags when streaming HD video to Roku 3 and XBMC boxes. Works great!

Cons: None at the moment.

Other Thoughts: It would be great if this router had internet filtering in order to block undesired websites such as xxx rated and other stuff.

4 out of 5 eggsReliable, but needs newer features

Pros: Setup was fairly easy (one caveat, see Cons). I wasn’t able to get the auto detect working properly, but it’s not complicated to switch the mode from “Auto detect” to “Automatic DHCP” in the settings.

Continuing that thought, the settings are both intuitive and powerful. Most of the standard features (port forwarding, wireless settings, firmware updating) that you would ever need to change at any point are displayed on the first page on the router with the router status. If you do need more than just a quick fix though, the menus are highly easy to navigate with quite a few settings powerusers, especially those who like to fine tune the wireless radio settings, would like.

The highest praise, I can give this router, however, is its reliability. I have not once had to reset it since connecting it about a month ago. I don’t foresee any sort of reset in the future either. Oddly enough, this can’t be said of many routers that I’ve tried, so this is a huge plus to me.

All the services I changed also gave me no problems. This includes DDNS, port forwarding, NTP, and QoS. Granted, I’m only one guy using this router, so QoS doesn’t affect me too much.

Cons: So, there was indeed a hiccup with the setup, the auto detect mode does not work. Furthermore, it would not let me change it from auto mode to WAN DHCP or Static IP without setting the router in “router” mode. There is a switch on the back of the router that must be changed in order for you to do this. It’s very easy to miss and have confusion when setting up your internet.

The hardware is lackluster compared to many current routers. No Gigabit speeds, and while it does have 5 GHz, there’s nothing in the ac band. There’s not much future-proofing with this router, and despite its awesome reliability, it’d be nice to have some current features, especially Gigabit ports!!!

The wireless range, although satisfactory for the most part, has some quirks on the 5 GHz band. The router and my bedroom have one wall between them. My signal on the 5 GHz band will be strong at 5 bars (I think ~50-60 dBm) at one minute, then drop to 2 the next. Sometimes this affects me (usually watching Netflix), sometimes I see no change (most likely due to the buffer). The 2 GHz band does not suffer the same problem.

Other Thoughts: I’m not really sure the point of Buffalo’s AOSS. I don’t feel comfortable using it, and I’m not enough of a network security junkie (yet!) that I can explain some possible flaws. However, I just know that it uses WEP at some point, and I just...don’t ever feel like using WEP in any aspect is a good idea. We have WPA for a reason and it’s super awesome, and it’s not like there are devices that most people use that MUST use WEP.

I didn’t get the chance to try the wireless bridging out. The wired version is fine (more like an access point really), but I live in an apartment, and usually the wireless bridge is much more applicable to most users.

I’d like to give this router 3.5 eggs, but I can’t, so I’ll round to 4. It’s something I’m glad to have doing my networking, as I won’t ever have to worry about my connection dropping (except for the strange case with the 5 GHz signal band). If it had more up to date hardware features, it’d be a much stronger case for 5 eggs.
