Great router - no more drops

Strengths: Dependbale, strong signal strength, upright compact size

Weakness: none to date

I had a Linksys wired router and a Linksys wireless router that I used as an access point. Every 7 - 10 days I would have to unplug the power in the router to reset it. This Buffalo unit has both built in, no need for two devices. In addition two of the ports in back of the wired Linksys router went bad. I had tried a Dlink to replace my Linksys routers but that had weak signal strength among...

A Diamond In The Rough

Strengths: Hardware appears stable; 16MB of on-board RAM and 4MB of flashable memory make this unit very attractive to anyone (newbie to enthusiast)

Weakness: Buffalo's firmware is mediocre at best - consider re-flashing the unit upon purchase (see comments below).

I've now re-written this review (before submitting it) several times, and each time it's been a battle to hold the line between product review and college-level technical lecture. So I hope you will bear with me and I promise I'll make it worth your while to read "more than just ten words." . What makes Buffalo's WHR-HP-G54 hardware itself so attractive is that it comes with more RAM than pretty...

Excellent

Strengths: Very fast, compact, came with wall mounting bracket. Supports OpenWRT and DD-WRT Linux firmwares, which really open up the capabilities of this router. Fantastic wireless range.

Weakness: Really the only issue I have with this router is that the link/activity lights for the wired ports are on the back instead of the front. Not sure why they did this, but whatever. It works perfectly.

This is absolutely the best value I have ever seen in a residential router. If you're not afraid of tinkering with this beast and using TFTP, give OpenWRT or DD-WRT firmware a try, they make the WHR-HP-G54 a hundred times more useful.

Great Router

Strengths: Ease of set-up, solid performance with Tomato firmware, no problem with Sunrocket VoIP

I was having problems with Linksys router and switched to Buffalo. I was able to upgrade the hardware, install the router and get VoIP back up and running in 15 minutes. I am very pleased with my decision!

Good product, but needs improvement

Strengths: Signal strength, cool looks, small size saves space, repeater/bridge capability

Weakness: Very poorly written manual, AOSS setup is not as easy as promised and can be buggy, only supports WEP when two or more WHR-HP-G54 routers are connected to expand the wireless range, weak firmware

I live in a single-family house with a Linksys WRT54G router placed in the master BR upstairs. There are a few dead spots on the middle floor, as well as almost no signal in the basement. As for signal strength, this router was better but not by much! The AOSS technology touted by Buffalo as a quick method of wireless setup is a little buggy, and could pose a challenge to the inexperienced user....
