Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH DD-WRT disappointment
Despite the DD-WRT partnership with Buffalo hardware and the stunning endorsements, the router is really disappointing compared to my previous Linksys WRT54G.
If you bother to trawl the DD-WRT forums several threads talk about how unstable and disappointing V24-SP2 build 14998 DD-WRT (Professional) firmware is.
- For me the WZR-HP-G300NH is less powerful than the WRT54G (ironically the "HP" stands for High Power)
- It fluctuates in speed and power, and just has an unpredictable unstable feel to it (could this be a "feature" of Wireless-N ?? )
My own post on the Buffalo forum goes un-answered, and contacting Buffalo directly is a sad redirect to (ref: 107218) http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/ for support.
This sadly seems to be some poor execution and followup by Japanese Buffalo. Firstly you need someone with a clue answer people's questions on the DD-WRT forums if you won't support DD-WRT on your Buffalo forums. The "professional" DD-WRT is hardly niche, it's ironically far easier to use than the default "stock" firmware.
Someone in Buffalo and DD-WRT obviously tried to make this work, but failed somewhere (Atheros driver?). Still I really hope you address peoples' complaints and issue a fix and try give your users support. Otherwise geeks and "professionals" will never trust your brand again Buffalo. :(
