Now steps in Buffalo, this has run solidly for 6 months without a reboot needed.
Now into 9 months of ownership I wanted to add a USB drive for media storage. One issue the Buffalo AirStation has is it cannot mount NTFS partitions, the standard for Windows since the days of XP. The choice is FAT32 for up to 32Gb, then XFS (a linux file system) for drives larger than 32Gb.
My solution was to switch from the Buffalo AirStation firmware to DD-WRT instead, Buffalo informed me that doing this would void the warranty on the device, but since it has ran solid for 8 months I'm not worried. So far two weeks and no trouble, works great with my NTFS partition. The DD-WRT interface can be a little intimidating to people who aren't used to setting up networking equipment, but if you are coming from a Linksys 54G with DD-WRT you should feel right at home.
Another feature that appears to be missing on the Buffalo firmware is SSH access to the device, this greatly decreases it's usefulness for those that like to tinker and roll our own solutions. Again with DD-WRT firmware loaded you now have SSH access to the device.
With both these features you can then create custom scripts to run upon plugging in a device, e.g. starting up Transmission BitTorrent when the device gets mounted, and making sure it mounts to the correct partition, have it read the torrent directory, and start up. Useful if you don't want to run your external drive all the time but want it for the occasional new linux distribution release.

Also when both 5ghz and 2.4ghz frequencies were on. The 2.4ghz
connection would be substantially slower than my last router which
used that frequency. There's potential here because when it did work
and you are on the 5 ghz frequency, it was fast. But at the end of the
day, I wouldn't recommend this particual product. Also, I technically
received a wzr-1750DHPD instead of a wzr-1750DHP, which I didn't
notice until I tried to download the USB connection software. This
product may be better suited for someone with more networking
experience (though I typically can navigate my way through router
settings, this one just kept giving me problems. I felt it wasn't
worth fooling around with.)
I purchased two of the AirStationExtreme AC1750(DHP) dual band routers to replace my older Linksys E3000 dual band routers. The set up went smoothly with the first router (configured for router mode) and I was able to make all the appropriate settings. When I set the second router to Access Point mode (since it lived at the other end of the house to provide wireless coverage there) I was unable to log in to the router to configure the wireless SSIDs, encryption, etc. The documentation says the IP address would be different when changed into that mode, but it wasn't responding on any of the IP addresses I tried. When I connected it to the main router, it provided wired network connection between the two, but the SSIDs of the WiFi were the stock ones, and I think it was running its own DHCP server.
It was late that night, so I called it a partial success and went to bed.
The next day, my wife wanted to stream a movie but was encountering network problems. I logged in to the main router (the only one I can access through the web configuration utility) and saw that it had lost its IP address with my Internet service provider. I renewed it and everything went back to how it had been when I went to sleep the night before. I looked on Buffalo's website and found that there was a new release of firmware for the router, version 2.29 (12-17-2015). I checked into mine and found it was shipped with 2.24. When I read the change notes, it turns out there was a bug where DHCP lease renewal wouldn't happen in certain situation when the router updated the clock from NTP. Once the movie was over, I decided to tackle both my problems.
I reset the configuration on the Access point, logged in to it in router mode (it was only connected to a single computer) and updated the firmware to the latest. I then configured everything I could (SSIDs, encryption, keys, IP addresses, etc) and then switched it over to Access Point mode (which is through a button on the back of the router). I lost connection again. *sigh*. After I looked more closely at the documentation I downloaded from Buffalo's website, I found a reference to the AirStation Configuration Tool, which is a separately installed piece of software. I found it, downloaded it, and installed it (my updated access point had been reconnected in to the network at this point). Using the tool I was able to discover both the main router and the access point. I used the tool to apply the IP address I wanted to use to the access point and open the web configuration tool to it. It had retained the wireless network settings I had applied in router mode, but only the router IP had changed (it was listed as the default shown in the document which I had tried to use but it hadn't worked for me, even though I had my NIC configured on the same subnet and directly connected).
Once that was done, I went ahead with the firmware update to the main router (all done through the web UI) and then my network was back working great. It has only been a couple days, but I am quite happy with the purchase. The information was relatively easy to find. There is an option to automatically update firmware, but I am not sure I want to do that with a working set up.
One interesting item to me is that I bought these because I have been using DD-wrt on my routers for quite a few years. I am used to it and thought this was easier buying some that came with it stock. I am not sure if this is the new DD-WRT interface or if this is a Buffalo overlay, but the WebUI is completely different, doesn't have all the DD-WRT options, but is actually pretty intuitive in Advanced mode, and very clear in the simple mode.
