5.0 out of 5 stars A good reliable router, 23 Oct. 2010

This review is from: Buffalo AirStation Wireless-N 300Mbps Cable Router with 4 Port Switch (Personal Computers)
I've had this cable router for around a month now and so far it has worked very well. It seems to give a reasonable wireless coverage, and the connection either wired (over ethernet) or wireless never loses the connection. And the Buffalo has never unexpectedly dropped the PPPoE (cable) connection at any time - which has meant a nice stable 'always on' internet connection.

The web-based interface is user friendly (with integrated help and explanation of configuration options) and appears to have all of the features I require. This Buffalo router has DMZ (good for online gaming) and the IP address to put in the DMZ can be permanently assigned on the router to your console (Services->Static Leases).

The router also records your broadband usage so for people with a limit on how much then can download each month (say 40GB for example) you can keep on eye on monthly download limits (information divided into days, weeks, months, years in MBytes). The only problem I've found with this feature is that if you switch your router off at night the router does lose some of the bandwidth usage information. This is only a minor quibble and doesn't affect router performance.

Please note that the signal boost feature on this router only works for wireless N and not Wireless G.

The only problem I've had with this router is that every night around midnight the router would lose the internet connection throwing me out of online games. This was easily resolved on the router Web Configuration 'Setup' page by changing the 'Force Reconnect' from 'enabled' to 'disabled'. Previously this feature when enabled was forcing the router to resync with my ISP at midnight every night. Doh!!
