Pros: for the first 9 months i owned this router it functioned excellent. Cons: after 9 months it has started to drop the connection daily, sometimes hourly.
Overall Review: if you only need a router for a few months i would recomend it, but if youre looking for a long term commitment, buy something else.
Needs to reboot at every minor configuration change. One fine day the RED diag light just lit up, wireless mode stopped working and soon the wired functionality too died. When I called again I was told that it was a refurbished router and was tested before sent out.
Overall Review: Stay away from this router and this company altogether. You will save lots of money and have peace of mind by choosing some other brand. Pros: Worked litterly out of the box, i just had to configure the wireless connection. This is the longest router to last so far, at around 5 months.
D-link lasted 2 months, replacement lasted a week Linksys-3days Cons: Sometimes needs to be reset, or it freezes on you, it used to do it everyday, until i updtaed my firmware, then maybe once a month or so it would stop working normally at night after a long day of gaming : I gave it 4 stars because of the freezes.
Some of the features the router has i find unneeded. AOSS is useless, just froze router when i tried to enable but i really dont need it. Overall Review: Should have gone with Buffalo a long time ago, cheap and great quality, their customer support isnt all that bad either the person that emailed an RMA I would definantly buy a gaming router from buffalo if they came out with one. Pros: Set up with no special tweaks right out of the box but only worked for a few months.
Once uninstalled would pick up IP address from router. Was on hold with Buffalo for almost an hour without talking to anyone. Finally emailed and got quick response for a tweak that worked for 30 min then same cycle again. Wired would hold for a little longer, but not much.
Overall Review: Won't use Buffalo again. Pros: Being newer to the home broadband arena, I also needed a wireless router so I could operate other computers in the house, and this was the ticket. No idea of who to go with, but coming to Newegg, Buffalo clearly had one of the best reputations--and I see why now. Fantastic speeds, unbelievable range, and just invisibly reliable. Cons: As great as it works, the instructions and CD's included are awful for anyone but the most skilled in wireless networking.
Despite my strong computer knowledge, at first I had no idea how the actually "set up" any of the routers I have 2 because the instruction manual starts going somewhere And the CD's included have worthless utilities that also aren't clear to even install, and when done, don't work.
I did no after the fact flashing, just wanted a strong, safe connection. Eventually figured out entering the routers IP address and playing around with options from there--but even from the instructions, you'd be hard pressed to know that. Overall Review: Awesome quality and reputation from Buffalo, brought to the market for a fantastic price by Newegg.
Just come up with actual instructions, a proper setup tips list, or even CD's with anything worthwhile, and the experience for those unfamiliar with the intricacies of wireless networking might actually be able to figure it out on the first try. Still, very pleased, at least after weeks of self discovery.
Pros: Lots of features, quick setup, very reliable hasn't needed to be restarted yet! It supports very strong encryption as well as some additional filtering options. Also has a wireless activity light and a diagnostic light. It also seems to be very resilient to attack from the internet, or at least better than my old router. The unit is also very nice looking, I like the upright design. Cons: I had to update the firmware, just like everyone else says. Also, kind of an annoying feature, it has the link lights for the wired ports on the rear of the device.
You can't see them unless you turn the router around. It also seems to take a long time to restart after you make a change to the settings. Nothing too serious though. Overall Review: It has a large high gain antenna but the range is no better than other routers.
It doesn't really have enough power to go farther. It works well all throughout my house though. Pros: The unit is extremely light and small. Very easy to setup! Supports the strongest security settings. Cons: failed, returned at my expense. The following guidelines apply to all product categories unless otherwise indicated within specific categories.
