Terrible 2.4ghz Performance 01/21/2013
This review is from: BUFFALO AirStation AC1300 / N900 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router - WZR-D1800H
5ghz performance is acceptable
2.4ghz g/n performance and reliability is horrible
I am a Systems Engineer. This router is barely functional as a dual-band router. 5ghz N performance (I don't yet have other AC devices) is good, but 2.4ghz is extremely slow and constantly drops connections. Streaming Netflix or other video over this router is an exercise in futility. Have a media box and a file server? Don't even bother. Firmware updates (currently 1.91) have not helped.
I have a 9 year old Linksys WAP54g that beats the performance and reliability of this router hands down. I have to leave it in place and use the Buffalo only for 5ghz wireless. This is the worst money I've ever spent on network hardware.
