Solid Unit Makes Me Happy :D

BUFFALO AirStation HighPower N300 Gigabit Wireless Router - WZR-HP-G300NH
BUFFALO AirStation HighPower N300 Gigabit Wireless Router - WZR-HP-G300NH

Pros: This is an amazing router. Its quick, reliable, and has a featureset that can not only handle basic needs, but more complex needs as well. Even though the interface has Buffalo branding on it, it is the same DD-WRT you normally see with the same features it normally has. It has amazing QOS and has the ability to limit upstream/downstream speed by MAC address which is extremely useful when your housemate is too lazy (or stupid) to limit bandwidth hogging P2P services.

Cons: I had to reset the unit when I first got it because when I would go into the admin section of the router via LAN, it was painstakingly slow. Once I performed a reset on the unit, that problem went away, but as it did require that, I am rating it 4 stars instead of 5.

Overall Review: You can't use the DD-WRT pro version with this router.

Don't Buy This

ASUS USB-AC55 Dual-Band Wireless-AC1300 USB 3.0 Wi-Fi Adapter
ASUS USB-AC55 Dual-Band Wireless-AC1300 USB 3.0 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: Packaged with a USB extension base/holder.

Cons: -Drops packets like crazy. -Drivers are REALLY bad. -Install with latest drivers does not fix the problem.

Overall Review: I'd rather get a straight up refund or be swapped to a PCIe WiFI card that isn't terrible. I ended up switching to a Buffalo USB adapter that has been amazing while my ASUS literally just collects dust on my desk.
