It was so easy that a caveman can do it.

My device simply shuts off the wireless network completely for up to a minute and then turns it back on again.

A rock solid router after firmware is updated to DD-WRT and hence the 4-star. It is basically unusable with the stock firmware, especially with Comcast, where it could not find the DHCP server most of the time.

Can be used as a router or a simple access point it has a switch for operation mode.
You can tweak almost everything in this router, it has a lot of options. I don't know for sure but seems you can install DD-WRT (Linux Based Firmware). I'm happy with it, as i have total control over the settings.
Be adviced, at the first time connection, you just have to wait at least 5 minutes to be able to use Internet (if it is connected to a DSL modem or Cable Modem), as it seems that it has to setup everything.
One thing to note, is that the cable provided with the router is only for the PC that will setup the router (don't know if it is crossover or rollover, haven't checked, but i had trouble when connecting it to the modem).

I purchased this router after, I thought, carefully considering the options. I didn't actually need wireless-n yet, but I didn't want to buy a new router for a while.

The product is feature rich and I especially liked that it is implemented on the open linux platform.

However, once I got it home the troubles began. The range was nowhere near what I was led to expect. I tried a number of different configurations suggested by buffalo documentation and the user forums but I was in the end disappointed with the range. It does not reach all corners of my house.

Much worse, none of my wireless devices could keep a connection for very long, 20 mins at most. It turned out the problem was a feature, enabled by default, that searches for the wireless channel with the least interference and switches to it automatically. New wireless devices support this and can follow the channel change, but older ones do not. This should be off by default, would have saved me hours.

Once that was fixed by searching the buffalo tech forums ([...]) I thought my problems would be over, however they were not. This device, and possible all the high end buffalo wireless routers, have some bug that prevents them from sustaining high network traffic for more than a few minutes. My device simply shuts off the wireless network completely for up to a minute and then turns it back on again.

What does this mean? Large file transfers (like backups to a NAS), streaming media (video, music), even updating my music libray on a NAS, will fail. This essentially makes the device useless. I didn't get a wireless-n router to support infrequent facebook status updates, I want a high bandwidth router that can support a networked home environment.

A little harder to set up and I had to update firmware to work properly.Once I did this and used the long encryption key It has worked flawlessly.
It has a stronger signal strength and further range than other routersI have used.

I just received this router yesterday. I took a big chance because i did not know the brand. I alway hear about Linksys, D-link, Netgear, Belkin, and it's real easy to compare amongst those, but Buffalo isn't that bad. First of all, it has so many features to play with that the average user might not like if all they are looking for is just plug-n-play. This router can actually help you set up your network as if you were going to run a small business and other people would need to have limited connectivity to the internet. It's a little hard to set up the router at first. I ran into a couple of gliches but it went through after all and when i was setting my wife's laptop, it literally just took me 15 secs to do it.

I am not using a wireless-N receiver in my laptops, therefore i can honestly say i'm not using the most of this router. But for right now, it works for me.

I bought this router because it seemed to get the best reviews for the price (although even the best reviewed routers seem to atill have 1 terrible review for every 2 or 3 good ones).

Setup using the CD was unsuccessful, but they provide 24/7 phone support and a pleasant, knowledgeable person helped me configure the router manually and made sure I was able to connect wirelessly to my laptop. It's been running flawlessly for about 5 days now.

Signal and range are much better than my old DLink and I've had no problems with dropped connections. I also like the fact that I can easily connect a second unit to get a strong signal to the other end of my house if I choose.

Really glad I bought this router.

For several years, Buffalo was tied up in legal battles over their wireless technology. Meanwhile, they continued to create some other great products -- primarily external hard drives and network-attached storage (NAS) drives. Now that Buffalo can legally sell their wireless devices, they've made some excellent products.

I purchased a WHR-G300N based only on the Buffalo name. Knowing they had to play "catch up" with the others, they had to create a product that would exceed the others in usability and/or price. This device didn't disappoint me.

First of all, it's TINY. I mean, really, really small. It's barely thicker than the Ethernet connectors on the back of the unit. This also means it has an external power brick (which is also pretty tiny). Second, although this is one of the few wireless-N devices that supports DD-WRT*, its built-in firmware was plenty configurable for my needs. I'm using this router as a secondary router to the horrible AT&T U-Verse router they supplied, and it works great.

The wireless-N speeds are exactly where I expected them to be, and communicating from a wireless computer to a wired computer is very fast. Wireless-to-wireless isn't as fast (as expected), but still fine for file transfers.

As for compatibility, it works fine with my Macs, Linux, Windows, iPhones, iPad, PS3, other wireless and wired devices. I found no compatibility problems. It also supports encryption up to and including WPA2-PSK.

Overall, this is a great router with a great price. D-Link, Linksys, and Netgear should be shaking in their boots. Seriously.

* DD-WRT is open-source firmware based on Linux. It enables features found in much more expensive routers but is not for the faint of heart.
