Review: Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH-AP

Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH-AP


I bought this broadband router to replace my Linksys WRT54G (Patched w/ DD-WRT).

Before using a new router, I wonder my Internet access speed cannot be fully utilized due to the speed of the router.

After changing to new router, Internet browser response is difference. And it is very close to the direct connection to computer.

6. After upgrade firmware (I upgraded it to 1.74), it supports WDS

1. I used it for 2 days, it has serious line drop issue w/ my home HGC 10MB ADSL broadband connection. Line will be dropped after running for 1 hour.
2. Every time having this issue, I need to reset my ADSL modem and broadband router.
3. I have tried different configuration and cannot fix the line drop issue.
4. I flashed it w/ DD-WRT firmware v24 preSP2 Build 14402. The Internet share performance is very poor and cannot be accepted. I reverted it to original firmware.
5. Finally, I give up using this broadband router w/ my home HGC 10MB ADSL broadband connection.
