Open source router fans, you don't need to fiddle with installing third-party firmware yourself anymore!

Buffalo announced today a trio of new Wi-Fi router that come preinstalled with the well-known DD-WRT linux-based firmware, including the AirStation AC 1750 WZR-1750DHPD, the AirStation N600 WZR-600DHP2D, and the AirStation N300 WHR-300HP2D.

Using third-party firmware on a router is very similar to installing Linux on your computer instead of using the vendor-provided operating system, such as OS X or Windows. This allows for a new level of openness, security, feature, performance, and flexibility. On top of that, using DD-WRT also allows for a more consistent, vendor-agnostic user experience, since stock firmware is very different from one vendor to another in terms of both the user interface and features.

Among others, some common features of DD-WRT firmware include:

  • OpenVPN, VLAN and full command line root access via Telnet and SSH
  • VPN passthrough
  • Advanced QoS controls for bandwidth allocation
  • WDS wireless bridging/repeating
  • DNS caching
  • Viewable performance statistics to measure bandwidth levels
  • Ability to set up as a Wi-Fi hotspot
  • RADIUS authentication for additional wireless security
  • DHCP server with the ability to create multiple Wi-Fi networks
  • Iptables NAT and firewall

DD-WRT is not geared to home users, though it's quite user-friendly, but rather advanced and professional users who want to get the the most out of their network. Prior to this, you generally have to hack your router to install third-party firmware, which can be a complicated process. Recently, more and more routers support open-source firmware officially and these three new routers from Buffalo are among the first that officially use DD-WRT as its stock firmware in the States.
