Fast router, updated interface
This router has a nice updated interface using tiles rather than a tree menu. Two things I liked most about this router is the ability to set individual controls for each device/computer and also schedule Internet time through the router rather than a desktop software program. I am able to turn off Internet access in my house at midnight, and turn it back on at 6:30 am. That keeps my kids from going on xbox all night.
Good throughput and range, Excellent interface
With the AirStation Extreme AC1750 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router, Buffalo steps up its game: The router offers great new management software and good performance. There's a lot to love about this router, but frustrating remote access and mobile management keep it from perfection.
New AC Standard with Backwards Compatability
Overall I have had no problems with it. Everything connects to the wireless flawlessly. I have seen signal and performance increase over my old router. My laptop was getting about 5-6Mbps downloads on speed tests and now it's getting around 25 which is the same as my desktop plugged in.
It's very fast on the 5GHz band and is comparatively affordable
The Buffalo AirStation AC1300 / N900 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router WZR-D1800H offers great value by adding support for 802.11ac on top of a high-end N900 router without increasing the price. However, the router doesn't have enough appeal for those who just need simple, low-budget wireless home networking.
Built in PPTP server, NAS feature supports DLNA and Torrent downloads
There is both good and bad news for those itching to run out and buy a draft 11ac router. The good is that, when paired with its WLI-H4-D1300 partner, the WZR-D1800H can produce almost 450 Mbps of aggregate throughput when handling multiple clients. Even better, though, its that the pair can produce around 100 Mbps of usable throughput at my weakest signal test point for a single test client!
Top throughput tested to date
The Buffalo AirStation AC1300/N900 Gigabit Dual Band WZR-D1800H is the first 802.11ac router to come to market, though it's draft 802.11ac. The device is the fastest router we've tested to date with excellent range. A poorly designed interface and no native IPv6 are the only blemishes on this otherwise killer router.
Offers decent performance
If you don't mind its inability to support USB hard drives formatted in NTFS, Buffalo's WZR-D1800H delivers better value than Belkin's AC 1200 router. Both models carry street prices of around £100, as does Buffalo's AirStation AC1300 wireless bridge. Belkin's 802.11ac bridge hasn't reached the market, yet, and its absence sharply curtails that router's usefulness. Moreover, Belkin's router and bridge support only two spatial streams on each wireless network.
Great Wireless Access Point
This is my second Buffalo AirStation and I'm very impressed with the price, speed, features and stability of this unit.
Since it comes with DD-WRT already built-in, the access point is very configurable and has many features you can't get with other access points. I used my second AirStation to set up a Bridge that extends my wireless network to other parts of the house and back yard. I could never do that with my old LinkSys routers.
Bi-directional routing throughput
As I've said (and shown) many times before, boosting transmit power alone doesn't provide any significant performance benefit in most cases. To get true range extension, you need to boost both transmit power and receive sensitivity on one end of a wireless connection or transmit power on both router and client.
Flexible and great performance
This device is great since it runs DD-WRT, so you have many flexible choices on configuring it, but the defaults out of the box work well. For example, if you connect the router via DHCP to a cable-modem then you don't have to specify logins such as PPPoE. If you are technically adept, you can customize many options such as creating a guest-only network for visitors who need to connect to the internet, but not gain access to the rest of your network.
Sleek silver design
While Buffalo prepares to blow the roof off of wireless throughput with their new Nfiniti series, based on 802.11n, the WHR-HP-G54 is still a stunner. Using a high-power wireless signal, this model gives you two performance options: with framebursting enabled, you can share files at 27 Mbps or more. With Turbo G, the maximum speed increases to about 35 Mbps. The intuitive AOSS security option means you can press one button to enable security.
Web management interface is quirky and difficult to get used to
The Buffalo WCR-GN is an N-Technology Wireless-N150 Router & Access Point designed to add high-speed, 150Mbps wireless connectivity throughout a home or office. Designed to deliver faster data rates than conventional 802.11 products, the pulls in bandwidth from a wired 10/100 Ethernet port and spreads it via a 2.4Ghz frequency range.
