1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable, no support

This review is from: BUFFALO WZR-1750DHPD AirStation AC 1750 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router, DD-WRT Open Source Pre-Installed

Pros: DD-WRT preinstalled, easy setup, slick design, great wifi performance when it works

Cons: Within a couple of days of ownership, the router began to stop resolving DNS intermittently, then completely, requiring me to manually renew DHCP to fix. It also randomly reset a few times, even with the latest firmware which was supposed to fix earlier issues. Buffalo support was less than useless - the detailed information I provided was ignored, and then I was directed to a third party forum for support. If you're going to charge extra to pre-install DD-WRT, warranty it and put your brand all over the firmware, you should support it yourself!

Other Thoughts: I'm a repeat Buffalo customer who has previously been very happy with their products (I used my last router for more than 6 years without issue) and was excited for the availability of a factory-supported DD-WRT router. However, this router ended up being returned and I will not do business with them again.

4 out of 5 eggsDid my review go through

This review is from: BUFFALO WZR-1750DHPD AirStation AC 1750 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router, DD-WRT Open Source Pre-Installed

Pros: Already reviewed this, sent it, something weird happened, not sure if it went through.

Good solid, modern features! Good build quality! Built on Linux for the firmware, we all know how fast and stable Linux is.

Cons: Documentation could be better, as usual.
Warranty is too short for a product in this price range.
Wireless signal strength is weaker than similar products in this category, resulting is slightly slower speeds and slightly shorter range.

Other Thoughts: The Dlink AC 1750 is a better option if these are both priced the same. But if this one is significantly cheaper, it would probably be the best option:)

2 out of 5 eggsProblem Child

This review is from: BUFFALO WZR-1750DHPD AirStation AC 1750 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router, DD-WRT Open Source Pre-Installed

Pros: Neat features, good connectivity when it works.

Cons: I have been dealing with this since I purchased the unit back in September. I bought a new Motorola Modem and the router to upgrade all my gear. Once set up things seemed to work fine. Then they didn't. I started getting lost signals - LAN and Wifi. I went through all the steps checking the modem then the router. The modem worked but when connected to it things went bad. Buffalo replaced it. The next one worked for the last two months no issues. Today, we lost internet through out the house. I called Comcast, no signal loss, no issues reading the modem. They sent a new signal. The modem worked fine connected to the PC, but not through the router. Pulled an old Netgear out and no problems with internet. Not happy. I was told this was a great router and company. While they did try and help, I have never had so many issues with Routers - neither the Netgear or the Linksys. Probably nothing Newegg can do either.

2 out of 5 eggsPerformance issues

This review is from: BUFFALO WZR-1750DHPD AirStation AC 1750 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router, DD-WRT Open Source Pre-Installed

Pros: DD-WRT for high customization

Cons: Poor documentation
Poor support
Underpowered

Other Thoughts: After several months, I started digging into my network issues and all the issues that we had appeared to be isolated to this device. I could also reproduce the performance drop off simply by doing anything on the router, such as visiting the web page. They should have provided sufficient processing power for this device. Now I have to replace it with ASUS and won't be purchasing another Buffalo device for a LONG time.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy.

This review is from: BUFFALO WZR-1750DHPD AirStation AC 1750 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router, DD-WRT Open Source Pre-Installed

Pros: It was fast and came with ddwrt

Cons: The first time I lost power the router bricked. Which seems to be a thing according to be goggle. The company support was so much of a hassle, that when my replacement also bricked. I gave up and bought an asus rt-ac66U. Buy that instead. have not had a problem and has almost all the same features as ddwrt.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointing performance and embarrassingly poor customer service

This review is from: BUFFALO WZR-1750DHPD AirStation AC 1750 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router, DD-WRT Open Source Pre-Installed

Pros: Love the pre-installed DD-WRT option, lots of promise

Cons: - Throughput was 10% or more lower than three other much lower grade routers at a fraction of the cost
- Random reboots for no apparent reason when not configured to do so
- Takes forever to establish a connection to cable modem and lower grade routers are almost instant
- Only device in over 30 years that 'bricked' on my when trying to flash the firmware
- Nothing but run around, poor excused, pitifully slow responses and unexplained charges to RMA the useless device back

Other Thoughts: Despite what seemed like impressive hardware the device runs slow and sluggish. Without any type of complex routing or NAT rules the CPU hovered at around 50% or more. Periodically the device would simply reboot for no reason and without it being triggered through the settings. I attempted to apply a firmware upgrade to resolve this and patch the BASH vunerability it has and the firmware (which they recommend and link to) hosed the device and made it unusable. It took over a week and three attempts to contact them before I got a response asking for contact info and proof of purchase for an RMA, which I supplied. Only to receive a reply back saying the first message was in error and that I'd have to call their support with the information and pay $30 shipping and handling to get a replacement. After spending over $150 i judged that an additional $30 for no apparent reason wasn't worth it given the poor performance and poor support the manufacturer provided. I decided to just cut my losses, go with a less expensive DD-WRT router and I couldn't be happier for a fraction of the cost.

5 out of 5 eggsBUFFALO WZR-1750DHPD

This review is from: BUFFALO WZR-1750DHPD AirStation AC 1750 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router, DD-WRT Open Source Pre-Installed

Pros: Looks- Very nice looking

Wired transfer speeds-up to 160 Mbps/steady @110, HDD to SSD

Sturdy construction-Quality Build

Ease of use-very easy to set-up and link devices

Security-Multi-level Encryption 128/64 bit WEP

5 X Gigabit Ethernet ports

Can use as WAP or Wireless bridge

Reliable - in well over a month I have not had to reboot this unit. That's the first time I can say that about any router I have owned.

No connection issues throughout the house.

Cons: To be completely honest I can't find many but here they are -

Wireless transfer speeds were slightly lower than I expected but not horrible.

At first security was a bit confusing to set up but that was mostly instructions.

Other Thoughts: I love this thing and have zero plans to replace it for a long time. Very excited about the wired transfer speeds as I was able to transfer a small 3 GB file PC to PC in just a few seconds and a nearly 60 GB file in less than 1 minute.

This is a huge time saver for me compared to other routers I have used. I feel my home network is very secure now and I don't have to worry about drop-outs, at least not so far.

I do not worry about wireless transfer rates at all but I have had no issues with the 5.0 Ghz wireless band on any devise. Very snappy. Did not use the 2.4 Ghz band.

I have 3 PC's 2 tablets and 3 phones that used this and all was flawless.

4 out of 5 eggsReliable, good build quality, 5ghz range issues

This review is from: BUFFALO WZR-1750DHPD AirStation AC 1750 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router, DD-WRT Open Source Pre-Installed

Pros: The build quality is some of the best I've seen on a consumer router at this price range, and this is a really great looking router. Detachable stands so it can easily be oriented standing or horizontal. Comes with nice card that slides into a slot on the bottom of the router that lists default wireless and gateway info. 2.4ghz range is very good.

Very feature rich DD-WRT firmware by default. So far the router has been very stable, and has not required any reboots. I had no problems changing settings in the firmware and applying them without having to reboot.

Cons: The 5ghz range on this unit isn't the greatest, even compared to other 5ghz routers I've used with internal antennas. But, I have also noticed this issue appears to heavily depend on the quality of the wireless card the client devices have:

in my experience so far, the range issues only appear to be an issue with devices with 1x1 wireless chips, such as smartphones. My laptops and my intel nuc get fine 5ghz signal and speeds anywhere in my house and don't suffer from any dropped connections, but our smartphones (samsung galaxy s2's) get very poor 5ghz signal even in the next room, fluctuates between 1-3 bars when I'm not even moving the device around and sometimes disconnects completely, they were fine anywhere in the house with a previous 5ghz router. I've tried tweaking the 5ghz channel settings to no avail, using the higher channels didn't seem to extend my 5ghz range to those devices over the lower channels.

If I switch those devices to using the 2.4ghz network I get full 4 bars in the same room and good speeds. Not a dealbreaker for me since the main device I need to be using the 5ghz network is my intel nuc, which I use for streaming video and that works great with this router.

Another con that should be noted, though it probably won't effect most is that the firmware on this model (DD-WRT), can't handle gigabit WAN > LAN speeds on ipv4, because it does not support NAT hardware acceleration, so when it comes to WAN > LAN routing speeds on IPV4, you are limited to roughly 200-300mbps speeds. Not an issue here since my ISP doesn't offer anywhere near those speeds. It should also be noted that there are beta builds of DD-WRT that do have this acceleration as an option though, so a firmware update in the future could possibly resolve this.

Other Thoughts: The bricking/reboot loop issue mentioned by many of the earlier reviews has since been resolved by the 3/24/14 firmware update, my device came with this fixed firmware out of the box.

4 out of 5 eggsRange?

This review is from: BUFFALO WZR-1750DHPD AirStation AC 1750 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router, DD-WRT Open Source Pre-Installed

Pros: Improved my up and download speeds. Easy set up once you are at device web page. You have just about every setting there is. No bright flashing LED lights. I had no dead spots with 2.4Ghz anywhere in my home.
I kinda like how this router family looks.
1 USB 2.0 and 1 USB 3.0
IEEE 802.11 ac/n/g/a/b

Cons: For me a router must have good range 200 feet or more.
This one did not I could not consistently connect to this router from my garage with any device.
Like many routers with 5Ghz transmission the range is low. Part of the price for 5Ghz I know but I would have cut out at 30 feet no obstacles.
Only a 1 year warranty. I have purchased less expensive routers that had a longer warranty.
Like most routers today the included Ethernet Cable is pretty short.

Other Thoughts: This router is not for someone that knows little to nothing about setting up a wireless connection. The included instructions are just about nothing.
I had to use IE to initially log into the router, chrome wouldn't do it.
Unlike some others I had no problems changing and saving multiple settings.
As others have mentioned Buffalo steers users towards DD-WRT forums for firmware support. One would think they could do a bit better than that. But then again I had no problems.
All in all this seems to be a pretty good router. I really didn't have any issues.
Took away one egg only for range issue. For most users that wouldn't be an issue.
