Buffalo WiFi router Reviews

Buffalo was first to market with an 802.11ac router, and for a time it was the only manufacturer shipping an 802.11ac client bridge. The WZR-1750DHP is the company's second effort, but it’s not very exciting. Its performance and feature set left it in fifth place in this six-router roundup.

As its name indicates, this is a dual-band router delivering throughput up to 450 mbps on its 2.4- and 5GHz 802.11n networks, and up to 1300 mbps on its 5GHz 802.11ac network. As it did with its first effort, Buffalo trapped the three antennas inside the router's enclosure. As you’ll see in the performance benchmarks, its range suffered accordingly.

Buffalo's WZR-1750DHP is the least-expensive 802.11ac router I've tested.

The WZR-1750DHP has one USB 3.0 port and one USB 2.0 port and can support both shared USB storage and a shared USB printer. But since it doesn’t support drives formatted NTFS, I didn’t measure its NAS performance. This router has most of the same business-oriented features as the Asus RT-AC68U, including VPN, FTP, and SAMBA servers, but it doesn’t support WAN bridging or the ability to connect a 3G/4G mobile broadband dongle to its USB port as the Asus RT-AC68U does.

On the consumer side, Buffalo included UPnP and DLNA media servers, but not an iTunes server. An integrated BitTorrent client means you can download torrents to an attached hard drive without tying up a PC on your network. The WZR-1750DHP’s Quality of Service (QoS) feature allows you to assign priority to video streaming, VoIP, gaming, audio streaming, web-browsing, or file downloads.802.11ac Wi-Fi router performance You can tweak the values for each of these settings or create your own custom rules.

The WZR-1750DHP’s parental controls, via Symantec’s Norton ConnectSafe web-filtering service, are better than average. But nothing I’ve seen compares to PowerCloud’s Skydog (unfortunately, that router is limited to the 802.11n standard).

The Buffalo WZR-1750DHP has one USB 3.0 port and one USB 2.0 port, so you can share both storage and a printer on your network.

Wireless networking performance

You can configure the WZR-1750DHP to operate as a router, a wireless access point, or a wireless client bridge. It doesn’t offer TurboQAM on its 802.11n network, but I don’t see that as a major shortcoming since the client also must support that technology, and relatively few devices do.

Each of the routers delivered high TCP throughput when paired with an identical router configured as an 802.11ac wireless bridge, but the WZR-1750DHP finished next to last at most locations in this scenario.

What are the best reviews for Wi Fi router?

The Belkin N1 Vision looks and performs like no other wireless router we've seen, its performance is among the best, and it's a snap to install. But it'll put a dent in your wallet. They quite above the average price, as they run from $114.99.

Having problems connecting my iPhone to my Buffalo Router's Wi-Fi?

I some how have access to it, (I put in the right password.) but I can't get it to work. Whenever I use safari or something it says internet not connected? I'm like right next to the router itself too. My router is a WZR2-G300N. Please help.

I'm assuming your wireless pc is able to connect to your router. If that is the case then the problem is not in your router but your iphone.
The first thing to do is to make sure the router will work wirelessly with another device. If your router is using wireless encryption I would disable it to see if the iphone will work. Once you get it to work, I would put the encryption back on.
If there is no encryption, then I would suggest you visit the apple store to get help to hook it up to any router. From there you should be able to get it to work with your router.
