Buffalo beefs up wireless routers with DD-WRT

KitGuru has reviewed quite a few Buffalo products since we opened a few months ago and so far we have admired their combination of competitive pricing and performance.

Many people don’t know however that Buffalo offer alternative open source firmwares for their wireless routers which are meant to deliver an easy to use, versatile and extensive feature set to a broader networking audience. Ideal for those people who demand a more advanced and complex solution than the standard configurations.

With an easy setup wizard, DD-WRT supports Buffalo’s range of high power routers with professional features such as VPN (PPTP, OpenVPN), VLAN (tagging), Virtual AP (multi- SSIDs for multi-connection and security), RADIUS server, hot spot support, volume quotas, iPv6 support, detailed monitoring and a host of other high-end features which deliver a fully guaranteed, out of the box solution.

Paul Hudson, Sales Director Northern Europe at Buffalo Technology comments: “Buffalo prides itself on providing cutting edge technology and incorporating DD-WRT software into our high-end routers and access points enables us to deliver professional solution at entry-level prices.”

If you want to try this out for yourself then head over to this location on the Buffalo website. KitGuru hopes to have some hands on experience shortly with this software.

    Well well, about time some major company did this, means we can control more functionality when compared to the retail solutions made for the mass market. Kudos for this idea.

    I heard about this last week, but I wasnt sure if it was rumor or fact. Good to see them doing this, the opensource guys will love this concept.
