This router is incredible!! Previously i had a netgear router that was nearing the end of its working life, with a reboot needed everyday. I am on virgin, and since you need a cable router for that, it narrowed down the search options a little. Not being a massive computer know-it-all, i didn't know fully why i needed a cable router, and for all the people who don't know a lot about computers like me, a cable router is when the internet connection is plugged into the router via an Ethernet port.
Now, about the router speed and coverage, it is unbelievable compared to my old router.
With this router, in my house, upstairs, i only used to get about 3 Mb/s and that was always fluctuating, but this was my full network speeds - 10Mb/s all over the house. Thoroughly chuffed with this product and i would definitely recommend it.

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!!

I chose this router on the basis of user reviews on Amazon, having originally been intending to go for Netgear, as recommended by my ISP, or Linksys, and been put off by reports of unreliability and unhelpful help lines.
I ran into some problems installing this, but as I've never even used a wireless router before, let alone installed one, I'm probably not typical. On the other hand, the BT engineer who installed my FTTC connection couldn't work it out either.
The very brief printed initial setup instructions that come with the router suggest over-writing the pre-installed DD-WRT firmware with what they call "user friendly firmware" using a setup wizard on the supplied CD, but I was unable to do this. The "Change Firmware" option just didn't work. I therefore needed the username and password for the DD-WRT firmware setup. Surely Buffalo should print this information in the initial setup instructions?
Luckily Buffalo technical support have UK telephone help staff who were extremely efficient and they soon got me connected by LAN cable.
I then found I couldn't set up a wireless connection. I feared the worst after Googling for information and finding that HP Pavilions went through a nightmare phase of hardware-related wireless networking problems. When I went back to the long-suffering Buffalo helpline they were inclined to blame my computer as well, but I borrowed a friend's new (non-HP) laptop and it wouldn't connect either. After working with Buffalo's technician it turned out to be a combination of Windows WZC not being correctly configured in my Windows XP, and me having turned off SSID broadcast because I thought that was the secure thing to do. Also my elderly HP Pavilion with a Broadcom 802.11b/g adapter wasn't happy with WPA2 (but accepted WPA security).

I have bought it few weeks ago. I had few problems that i thought first were with the router. It appeared it was with the network. Anyway.. I could have put a great router as title but since i have only used it so far as an access point i can't talk about the router function. I used it for 2 laptops which use 802.11g wireless card. One use Ubuntu and the other XP. And it works great! The wireless goes over 25m through 3 concrete walls (2X20cm and one of about 10cm thick). Of course the signal is not 54mb/s anymore but about 36mb/s which is not that bad. I haven't test the 802.11n yet since i don't have anything that can receive it. Probably later on. The installation can be done with the CD that works only on Windows or directly through the router's setting with Windows or Ubuntu. I'm not an network expert and I success in making it work without the CD. In the box there are 2 plug one for UK (type G) and the other one for the rest of EU (type C). By the way, this is no modem.
