Customer Reviews

By the way, that's another advantage of a device like this - you can use a single wired ethernet port to connect many devices.
D. Brennan
This Buffalo AirStation AC433 Wireless Travel Router is very easy to use and the small size makes it perfect for business travelers.
C. Hill
If Buffalo will give a standard router interface (or release a version of DD-WRT for this router) I would gladly give a 5 star.

The Buffalo AirStation Wireless Travel Router WMR-433-BK is nice and compact and powered by a usb port. It is a very basic router or access point that can be used to take your wired Ethernet connected laptop and make it a wifi signal. Most hotels offer wireless service anyways, so this wouldn’t be needed. If the signal is weak and they offer the Ethernet cable, plug that to your laptop then hook up this router to make the signal wifi. The setup is simple and basic.
Plug into a USB port, refer to the enclosed setup card for the IP address, username and password. Pass key to connect to router is same as the password. Once connected it prompts you for the setup. Make a wireless or wired connection (router has Ethernet port). Search for the service you will connect to, insert user name/password and you are done. Your devices you use to connect to the signal will use the password on the card. Advanced users that need to connect devices on the go with the smallest of equipment will enjoy the size of this router.
Cons: No ability to change settings, so don’t lose the setup card.

Good speed... as the specs indicate.

Terribly limiting firmware... The only config options you have is choosing between "router mode" and "access point mode", naming the BSSID, and setting the wireless encryption method and password/key.

No ability to setup as a WDS AP, bridge, etc. The options quoted from the webgui below is all you get... If someone from Buffalo is listening, please update this very capable device with some USEFUL firmware.

-----------------
Router Mode: Router functionality will be enabled. Select this for normal use, or if the AirStation is connected to a hotel's LAN port or a modem.

Access Point Mode: router functionality will be disabled. Select this if the AirStation is connected to a router or if you cannot connect to the internet in router mode.

First off, this thing is tiny. That's not a bad thing, however it would make it easy to lose.

as far as travel routers go, I personally feel that this is not worth the money compared to something like the TP Link TL-MR3040

while the interface is simple, it is lacking many of the features found in other travel routers (that cost less as well). For one, this router does not support wisp routing without updating the firmware. (wisp routing allows you to connect your wireless router to share another wireless network). After the update, which was simple enough, I was happier, however this router is lacking things such as MAC address cloning, which is common in many other travel routers.

I have always been a fan of Buffalo products, however this device appears to be a let down. If Buffalo will give a standard router interface (or release a version of DD-WRT for this router) I would gladly give a 5 star.

If this router could perform all of the features (at minimum) of the TP-Link TL-MR3040 I would be happy. Honestly, though, the 5 GHz band is a nice feature.

This device has potential, however on release day, I was expecting more.

This really is tiny. But for me the downside is that there is no built in power, like two other portable wireless routers I have. But for that, you'd have to increase the size and it seems they're going for that "I want it small and unobtrusive" consumer. It has a physical 2.4 or 5 GHz selectable switch. Also actually has a WPS switch, another thing to make life simpler for people who aren't as technical as others. It's also nice that it comes with a more or less non standard IP (192.168.13.x) so that the odds of any conflict with the existing network you're tapping into are minimized. And the WPS switch worked just fine with my Windows 8.1 Thinkpad Yoga tablet.

As others have said, though, the GUI is, well, minimal isn't the right word. I don't know of any word that conveys, "There, but so barely there as to be just about nonexistent." But this is where it all comes down to the target audience. This is my fourth small travel router. Each would fill a different purpose, for a different technical level of the end user, and different actual requirements. The go-to one I use all the time at client sites is my TPLink TL-WR700N. I love that it's just like an Apple power adapter - just a small rectangle with folding outlet prongs that I don't need a USB port to power. That thing has worked flawlessly for me for the last year and a half or more. I also have another portable wireless router that also is a USB charging battery, and the nice thing there is that you can use it even without a USB port to plug it in, since it can use the internal battery to run off of. Then there is my small TPLink one that's a nano size just slightly larger than this Buffalo one, but that I have never used because I just don't like being tied to a USB port for power.

Travel routers are not needed as much as they once were, and that's because most hotels in the US provide Wi-Fi access to an unlimited number of devices. This is generally true whether you pay for the Wi-Fi or if it's free. This small device might come in handy internationally, especially in Europe where they tend to be more stingy with internet access. The problem there, however, is how some places limit both bandwidth and data usage, something this router cannot help.

Although the set-up of this router is fairly straightforward, the instructions miss a few steps for those who aren't used to setting up travel routers. (This is my third.) If you are scratching your head on the set-up, follow these instructions instead:

1. Plug your air station into a USB port of your computer to both power it and connect it to your computer.
2. Select Buffalo from the list of wireless networks on your computer.
3. Move the switch to 2.4 or 5 GHz, depending on your needs. (I'd default to the 2.4)
4. Get out the all-important card that comes with your Buffalo air station. Open a browser window (Safari, Firefox, Chrome, IE.)
5. Enter the IP address in the URL field.
6. You'll get a pop-up window. Enter the username and password key as printed on your card.
7. Go through the set-up wizard process, choosing between wireless and wired set-up. Make sure you have the password/key for your home network.

For whatever reason, my first two attempts failed, even after resetting between the two. The third worked perfectly. The set-up itself takes only a few minutes. Now that my travel router is set up, and I disconnect from my computer and place it anywhere in the house, connected to a power source, to use as a repeater or secure private network.
