5 out of 5 eggsWorked Flawlessly

Pros: I needed this to use as a 1-1, non-NAT router on my static 5 block. This worked very well.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have used many Buffalo products and always been satisfied.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Router on a Mature Platform

Pros: The main reason I got this rather than an AC router is that this is mature technology, has an excellent track record for stability and durability, and with DD-WRT it is so configurable, and of course there are few AC devices out there at this time. I know some may have shied away from this router because of the DD-WRT, but the Buffalo interface for it made it quite easy to configure. All that was needed was my DSL username/password and then I set up an SSID for each band rather than accept the defaults that Buffalo provided, but I could have stayed with them as it was really that simple.

Setting up Security was easy and straightforward as well. There are a lot of things that you can configure and customize with DD-WRT, but you can also just do the basics and have it up and running within minutes and it will stay running and not drop connections or require regular reboots. The nice thing is that you can always go back in and configure and change the settings at any time, and if you save your configurations then you'll have a quick way to get back to something that was known to be working well if you should make some changes that downgrade performance or simply mess it up.

I was expecting the 2.4 GHz band to extend further than my previous router and wasn't disappointed, but what I wasn't expecting was that the 5 GHz band would be strong enough to go through a floor and a wall and I am getting a full 5 bars with excellent response. This is also a very cool running router so that should contribute to a nice long life, and I still own a WRT-54GL so I know that a router can be made to last for a very long time.

Cons: None, very sweet running WiFi router without the headaches.

Other Thoughts: One thing that Buffalo should have fixed a long time ago was the stand. It really is crummy and doesn't stay in place very well and even though it doesn't take a lot of effort to "jury rig" it, the customer shouldn't have to do that as the company should have remedied that problem early on. The antenna's are a little weird but seem to work well, though they do appear to be on the fragile side so use extra caution when positioning them because they don't look like they'd hold up to much rough handling. Once you figure out the best placement then you probably won't need to touch them again which is probably a good thing. Other than these two minor annoyances, the pluses of having a rock solid router with excellent range far outweighs these annoyances. Having a gigabit LAN is a real plus.

This may not be the latest state of the art in Wireless Routers but it has enough capabilities to handle most home networks and it is based on some proven mainstream technology and that is likely why so many people have posted so many positive reviews.

Just to have that many people agree that this is a good router is quite a remarkable feat as folks tend to be extremely critical of their wireless routers. It seems that many of the complaints are centered around it having DD-WRT and those that did have problems apparently didn't always receive top notch technical assistance, certainly room for improvement there on Buffalo's part. Some of these problems may be attributable to being unfamiliar with DD-WRT, but there is a more user friendly version on the CD and while not as robust as the full factory installed version it will provide most of the main features an average user would need.

All in all just another satisfied owner, and hoping that it lives up to its reputation over the long term.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Router

Pros: This has a powerful signal. It can also be used as a bridge access point. I have deployed about 6 of these to my customers over the last few months. No failures yet.

Cons: Sometimes the web interface is slow or hangs up. I was not able to configure a separate SSID on a VLAN, I think because I had a server doing DHCP for the network instead of the router itself.

Other Thoughts: I've gone from Linksys to Trendnet to TP-Link and now to Buffalo. I hope that Buffalo works better than the previous brands. I have 3 TP-Links that I have to RMA right now.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat router so far

Pros: DD-WRT support, Gig-E, Dual band, signal is great, even has USB for storage/printer. There are some routers with similar features for less, but this was no hassle to flash, is well made comes with stand/wall mount, and the hardware transmitter and antenna amps make this an excellent option if you need range, or as in my case, have a lot of noise from nearby routers and just need the added power to improve the S/N ratio.

Cons: Not AC but I knew that

Other Thoughts: I have been running DD-WRT for a while on WRT54G family of routers, and knowing this had full support and even a manufacturer supplied version of DD-WRT was nice to know. The provided DD-WRT firmware had all the usual bells and whistles and didn't look to be stripped out, but from looking around I found that some owners had reported disabling WPS does not actually disable WPS in that firmware (a fairly common issue on routers). So I flashed to a recent community build and have been very happy with it so far. Flashing is as simple as flashing any other router which is already running open source firmware.

5 out of 5 eggsJust works

Pros: Used it to replace an aging Linksys router. It is supporting about 30 devices from iPads to Roku to Laptops flawlessly.

I haven't had to restart it in months.

The setup was very straightforward.

Cons: Some have complained about WPS but I don't use it.

Other Thoughts: It is made of plastic but at this price I wouldn't expect a significantly more robust unit.

Pros: Faaaaast, Reliable, SOLID

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: This is by far the best router nowadays; I replaced my old Wireless G Buffalo router which was excellent but it is time to retire it. The speed is blazing fast, the access to the GUI is smooth, applying changes is way too easy and it doesn't take a bit, changes are done in the blink of an eye. DD-WRT feature is extremely customizable; Range is superior to anything in the market; I really regret giving a chance to another expensive brand that gave me hell of a headache and the tech support couldn't resolve anything when troubleshooting (look for my other reviews and you will see what I'm talking about). I work in the networking field and I can tell you with complete confidence, you can't go wrong with Buffalo.

5 out of 5 eggsLow power, single-purpose server using OpenWRT

Pros: I use small WiFi routers running OpenWRT as single-purpose servers: mail, web, VPN, etc. The N600 is adequately fast, plus has a good amount of Flash, so I can configure a fairly complex server. I'll run Apache and WordPress on my most-recent system (the WordPress database will live elsewhere)

Cons: It's a bit of a hassle to build and install a custom, single-service OpenWRT, and a moderate hassle to unbrick the router if you screw it up while getting things running Just Right. But it can be done, and it's worth it to have a no-moving-parts, low-power server that you can tuck in the corner and forget about.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing open source router

Pros: Comes with dd-wrt installed
Runs openwrt (12.09) perfectly
40 MHz channel width (300Mbps) support
Excellent 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz range (at 20dbm/100mW)
Both radios supports multi/virtual ssid/wifi along with vlans so you can segregate your wireless network (tested with openwrt)

Cons: dd-wrt can't disable wps (even with it disabled it shows up in scans), thus another reason to run openwrt
lack of dd-wrt 'official Buffalo' firmware updates to address various issues (although there are dd-wrt 'community supported' releases you can use)
Flimsy non-removable antennas

Other Thoughts: Although dd-wrt is nice, I find openwrt to be more powerful and reliable. The broken wps configuration, plus a few other issues with dd-wrt will probably make you upgrade, too. Overall a great open source supported router for an excellent price, thus why I bought two more.

1 out of 5 eggsUninspiring support.....

Pros: Most reviews are positive, brand name seems like it is moving up.

Cons: Poor support. I configured simple port forwarding for RDP and VNC and a simple PPTP VPN. Both features worked inconsistently. I searched high and low thinking it was something else besides the router. After all other possibilities were eliminated I purchased an ASUS router at a local store; which worked perfectly. After a day or so I called Buffalo and a nice gentlemen helped me out, but could not identify root cause. He was going to do some research and call me back in 24-hours. That call never happened and I have a black brick behind my desk.

Other Thoughts: I will probably do a factory reset and retest it since it is DD-WRT. That said, extremely disappointed at the failure of not only basic features but level 1 support.
