Buffalo DD-WRT Routers

  • Buffalo routers are known for their high-quality and wireless network reliability.
  • These routers run a special open source router firmware called DD-WRT that’s robust & feature-rich.
  • Make sure you do not get a Buffalo router with stock firmware! Those have not been tested and are not nearly as feature rich as those provided by the open source DD-WRT firmware!
    • As well, please ensure that you do NOT get the “DD-WRT NXT” version of the software. This is a stripped down version with far less robust configuration settings.
  • The N600 routers are unfortunately no longer in production. Note that any Buffalo DD-WRT router is recommended.
  • These routers have Advanced Bandwidth Control, which were effective at resolving call quality problems due to bandwidth overutilization.
