5 out of 5 eggsGreat router

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

Pros: It's got the typical user-friendly web interface, but the underlying OS is highly customizable. This has obsoleted my home server.

Cons: None

3 out of 5 eggsDepends on the price.

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

Pros: * Standard barrel connector. (12 volts at 4 amps, black tip.)
* Fully supported by DD-WRT, including daily builds.
* Physical power switch.
* USB 3 port.
* Dual radio.

Cons: * OpenWrt compatibility is incomplete.
* Runs hot under load and warm while idle.
* The function LEDs are dim and indistinct, but the "BUFFALO" logo is bright white.

Other Thoughts: OpenWrt 15.05 lacks full support for the WZR-1750DHPD because it requires the broadcom-wl driver package for ARM, which is not yet integrated. +1 star when this happens.

* Wall mounting screws are bundled, but this model is designed for a desktop or shelf.
* Bundled with a 48 watt power brick.
* No external antenna port.
* ARM7L CPU.

1 out of 5 eggsFirmware Permanent Locks your Router

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

Pros: I really liked the router.. until..

Cons: I'll never buy another Buffalo product again. I liked the device, until I copy/pasted the model number into the buffalotech.com website, downloaded and installed the only firmware that came back. This firmware was the non-ddwrt firmware, which normally wouldn't be a big deal, except they LOCK your router after that point. And first I thought I could just bootwait / tftp the firmware back. Unfortunately that's not the case. Here is an email response from Buffalo-

"Thank you for contacting Buffalo Support.
I am sorry for you inconvenience but if you have the WZR-1750DHPD and installed the firmware Version 2.27 then you will not be able to revert to the DD-WRT firmware. Once installing the version 2.27 it locks the router making it impossible to revert back to the DD-WRT version. There is no way to revert back to the previous firmware.
We appreciate you taking the time to let us know. If you have any other questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to let us know and we will be happy to help."


This non-ddwrt (version 2.27) firmware is pretty horrible and has basically no options. It's basically bricked to me at this point since I only bought the router to have dd-wrt. I had plenty of correspondence with their tech support which was a waste of time. They effectively stole my hardware from me. Beware.

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.
