Best Uses:

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I use WZR-HP-AG300H mainly for extending the range of my home wireless network. My main wireless router is a Linksys WRT160N. I also own a WZR-HP-G300NH, but wanted to get WZR-HP-AG300H for the 5GHz channels. I am working in IT field, so setting up and configuring this router with DD-WRT was fairly easy. The range is pretty good, while my WRT160N only gives 2-3 bars in the farthest room, WZR-HP-AG300H gives 4-full. The problem is the wireless speed with WZR-HP-AG300H. With Channel Width set to Turbo(40MHz), even with my laptop (Win7 Ultimate 64Bit with a Intel Wi-Fi Link 5300 AGN) right in front of the router, the speed changes around between 200-300Mbps, rarely stable at 300. If with my WRT160N in range, the speed is stable at 300Mbps. If I go to the farthest room, WRT160N with 2-3 bars, I can still get a stable speed of 150Mbps, but with WZR-HP-AG300H, it fumbles between 15-250Mbps. Sometimes even the network status shows 240Mbps, the real speed is way low, the network shares I have amongst my computers are all frozen. With the WRT160N, although it shows 150Mbps with 2-3 bars, it is the real speed and all my shared folders are normal and smooth. To get a relatively stable and high speed with WZR-HP-AG300H, I have to reboot the router and reboot my laptop. I am not sure if I didn't configure the router correctly or the router does have some problems. I noticed similar complaints regarding WZR-HP-G300NH. Overall, this is an OK device. I hope that the speed issue is with the software not the hardware, so that Buffalo would publish later software updates to improve it.
