1 out of 5 eggsHorrible router

Pros: NONE!

Cons: This is the worst router. It overheats and stops working after about a day. Then I need to restart it. My super old Linksys wireless G router was so much better. I made the mistake of throwing out the box before testing it. I just threw money in the garbage.

4 out of 5 eggsBuffalo AC1200

Pros: Bought it for the purpose of wireless bridge. Works great as WB in 5 GHz band.

Cons: Manufacturer could be less stingy on wireless bridge documentation! If not having enough technical knowledge, I can't see how someone could set it up. For that, I take one egg off.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat entry-level AC1200 router/AP/bridge

Pros: - inexpensive
- ac1200 speeds
- simple firmware that supports router / AP / bridge modes painlessly
- gigabit WAN port

Cons: - does not support 3rd party firmware like DD-WRT / openwrt / tomato
- 10/100 lan port speeds

Other Thoughts: I am using this as a standalone access point to support the multitude of wireless devices my family now owns and it is perfect. Since we now have several devices as well as a couple of wireless-bridge access points that use the 5ghz band this will provide the bandwidth they all need. I am giving this 5 eggs since it can provide ac1200 speeds and router / AP / bridge modes at such a low price (I got this for 2 benjamin notes during the black friday sale) no other router can even come close even at 2x the price which mitigates the cons listed easily.

some additional specs:
- MediaTek MT7620A (2x2:2,bgn, switch 10/100-LAN/WAN)
- MediaTek MT7612E (2x2:2,an+ac)
- RAM 128Mb

2 out of 5 eggsCheap for a reason

Pros: Worked as a basic router. If you do nothing but plug and play over wireless this may be for you.

Cons: 10/100 LAN on an AC1200 router is just laughable. It's been close to a decade since Gigabit LAN entered the home! 10/100 LAN does not translate to "Ideal for high speed media streaming and lag-free online gaming".

Port Forwarding didn't work at all for me. Tried it, made sure to follow directions from their manual. Played with it for hours to try and get it working. Updated firmware, the whole 9 yards. Had to return it. I ended up buying another router for about the same price and guess what, port forwarding worked find. Won't be buying buffalo again soon.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: small, unobtrusive case. easy setup for stnadard use using factory firmware.

Cons: no DD-WRT firmware version available for this unit

Other Thoughts: This model is very different from the WZR-1166DHP which does have a version of DD-WRT firmware avaiable. My mistake in ordiering it.
