*300 Mbps is the maximum aggregate wireless signal rate derived from IEEE 802.11n standard specifications achievable using two streams of 150 Mbps each. Actual data throughput and range will vary depending upon network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction and network overhead. 600 Mbps is the maximum wireless signal rate achieved when using two bands (5 GHz + 2.4 GHz) of two streams simultaneously. Maximum speed and range is achievable when used with same enhanced mode technology.

Support for Buffalo Routers with DD-WRT Pre-Installed

What is DD-WRT?

DD-WRT, a mainstay in the open source community, delivers a versatile, extensive, and an easy-to-use set of features to a broader wireless networking audience.

From the novice user to demanding professionals, this partnership provides best-in-class products for a wide range of consumers.

To millions of users worldwide, DD-WRT is the leading Linux-based alternative open source firmware for wireless routers, enabling basic entry-level equipment to act like an enterprise product.



DD-WRT NXT is the latest open source firmware in routing technology. It offers advanced features and low-level device management unlocking extensive capabilities and potential with increased network stability. The technology will continue to evolve in its capabilities as more features are added to the firmware or made available via software modules.



Because the open-source operating systems on these routers is not written or maintained by Buffalo we are limited to providing hardware support for these routers. We will gladly replace a router that has a hardware failure within the warranty period but are unable to provide assistance with configuration or operation of any DD-WRT unit.
