The ideal Internet and network solution for the home and small office environment. Perfect for streaming HD movies, music, and e-mailing from multiple PC’s simultaneously. With speeds of up to 300Mbps, the Buffalo AirStation™ Nfiniti™ Wireless Router upgrades an existing Wireless connection and provides greater coverage than Wireless-G.

• Wireless-N Standard Networking offers up to 300Mbps and better coverage
• Enhanced Multi-Level Security WPA2, WPA-PSK (TKIP, AES) and 128/64bit WEP security are supported
• Secure and easy Set-up with AOSS or WPS
• Position vertically, horizontally or wall mounted

Buffalo AirStation™ Nfiniti™ Wireless-N Router & Access Point is the next standard Wireless router designed to 802.11n specifications. The AirStation One-Touch Secure System (AOSS™) or Wi-Fi Protected Set-up (WPS) provides a quick and easy way to create secure Wireless connections within minutes. Each connected PC or laptop can use different security levels simultaneously. It is also possible to restrict access from other devices connecting with different encryption levels. For example TKIP/AES encryptions can be used for your PCs and WEP encryption for a gaming console simultaneously, but if someone tries to access the network using WEP encryption (which is the weakest encryption) they cannot access other devices connected via TKIP/AES. Internal antennae and compact chassis. Can be positioned vertically, horizontally or wall mounted.

I'm assuming you don't have to have cable for this to work... we have o2 broadband and this would be perfect when I get my new Xbox 360S

Tiny Internal antennae are a massive mistake on routers, check some reviews before parting with the cash.

OK, stupid question time.

I already have a Netgear wireless router attached to my Virgin cable modem.
I also use Devolo homeplugs (superb devices) for my kids machines at the back of the house.

If I bought this Buffalo N-300 in my kitchen, connected to the Netgear router via one of the Devolo plugs, would I be able to access my network / the internet wirelessly?

I could buy a Devolo Wireless Extender to extend wireless coverage in the house but a single one of these is >£80 ... :gulp:

Thanks in advance!

not dd-wrt compatible... does it really matter that much?

Only if you need the features that DD-WRT affords.

Good price if you don't want 5Ghz.

Q-Tec. That would work but why not just connect it straight to your existing router?

I am with this router for the last 6-7 months and like it a lot. Excellent configurability (is this a word?) features with dd-wrt installed, but poor WiFi signal.
Ops, this is version2 which is not compatible with DD-WRT. In this case I would not bother..

This is exactly the sort of situation a device like this is very useful for, so yes.

if I understand what you want to do it is this

virgin modem >---ethernet cable--->netgear router >----ethernet cable--->Devolo homeplug>---house wiring--->Devolo homeplug>----ethernet cable--->buffalo>---wireless--->wireless devices

Now the problem with doing it this way rather than a wireless bridge is that you will have two separate wireless hotspots in your house with different names. This is less seamless than bridging the same wireless hotspot but most modern devices will automatically switch between them anyway.

Because the router is in my office at the front of the house and the wireless signal is notoriously bad at the back. The unit has arrived at home and I'll be testing it out tonight!

Version 2 is compatible with DD-WRT. I have flashed a few of them - they're even easier than version 1 (in that you can just update the firmware as you usually would - no need fot TFTP!

Research!

i might get ur question wrong. anyways, if you already got a netgear wireless router, why would you need another device for you hook up ur network wirelessly in ur kitchen? could you just connect to ur network wirelessly through the wireless signal from ur router?

Make sure you put the wifi on a different broadcast channel to your existing router, or they might interfere with each other. This is pretty much the set up I have (with a different make). I have 2 wifi networks with different names on different channels. One covers the front of the house, the other the extreme opposite corner of the the house and all the garden. Works a charm.

Got this a few days ago and it's fine. Full coverage throughout 4 bed house even with internal antenna. Only problem I have is my Aspire One won't connect to it. Supposed to be a driver issue but can't get it to connect properly. Keeps saying password miss match when it's not or with other driver just won't connect. Bought a new internal wireless adapter for my Aspire One which is N rated to replace the Atheros.
So my only problem with it is really a problem with my Aspire One

Im considering getting this to replace the rubbish Netgear wnr2000 that Virgin sent me! Hot deal!

James,

That's it exactly! I've got it set up in the kitchen now connected to the main Netgear router via the Devolo Homeplug. I've kept it as a a different name and just added this wireless network to my HTC phone, daughters iPod Touch, internet radio and my wife's laptop. All these can now see and connect to both wireless networks in the house. In the front of the house we can connect to my office wireless network, at the rear we can use the one from the Buffalo ... just like Paradigm!

To my family, this is £20 well spent! No more slow/dropped connections from my office router and the whole house is now covered. Thanks for your input and advice. I'm chuffed!

ffs just paid 27 for one of these 2 days ago.

Hi - I am considering buying this router. I have broadband from a local cable company and I'm currently using an ethernet cable connected to their cable modem. I hope that this router connected to my cable modem using an ethernet cable would allow me wireless connectivity ? Would this router be suitable for my needs ? Please help ?

Thanks a lot :-)

Suitable this router would be. Feel happy you will, At £20 a bargain it is.

@ Q-Tec - the force is strong in you, it is

£25 now, still a pretty good deal though
