Buffalo Wireless Nfiniti WZR-AGL300NH review

£65 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Buffalo Technology

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

The latest iteration of the Buffalo Wireless Nfiniti Gigabit Router series is, at first glance, a shrunken version of the behemoth that we looked at in our last wireless router group test, the Buffalo WZR-AG300NH.

The latest iteration of the Buffalo Wireless Nfiniti Gigabit Router series is, at first glance, a shrunken version of the behemoth we looked at in our most recent wireless router group test. (Read our review of the Buffalo WZR-AG300NH here).

The case is smaller and the external rotor-like antennae have been replaced by a stubby trio, mounted on the side of the case. Status information is provided by a row of 12 LEDs. Style-wise, it's a tad retro, but the specification is up to date: you get WPS, Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) and support for Vista's LLTD network-mapping capability.

This is a dual-band device, but not in the same sense as the other dual-band routers reviewed here. While it can operate in both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands - making this a pleasingly flexible device - the Buffalo can't do so simultaneously.

We found the web interface unintuitive, but the inclusion of AirStation One-Touch Secure System (AOSS) and an Easy Setup wizard takes away some of the pain. And it's well worth persevering, because the Buffalo achieved some excellent throughput rates - iPerf clocked it at 68Mbps.

It’s no looker and it’s tricky to set up, but this router delivers the draft-n goods, offering excellent raw wireless speed. Couple that with a low price and you’re on to a good deal.
