Buffalo and DD-WRT Collaborate to Create the Most Comprehensive Consumer and Small Business Wireless Offering

New Family of Wireless Solutions Deliver Enterprise Grade Features in an Entry Level Package

AUSTIN, Texas, March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Buffalo Technology, a global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of wired and wireless networking and network and direct attached storage solutions announced the next step in the partnership with NewMedia-NET to deliver DD-WRT based software as a standard configuration across Buffalo's array of high power routers and access points. DD-WRT, long a mainstay in the open source community, delivers an easy-to-use, versatile and extensive feature-set 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.

"Buffalo has always been on the bleeding edge of technological innovation, and incorporating NewMedia-NET's DD-WRT software solution into our high-end routers and access points is a natural evolution," said Ralph Spagnola, vice president of sales at Buffalo Technology. "With DD-WRT, we now deliver professional grade solutions at entry-level prices."

Serving 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 enterprise products. With DD-WRT, Buffalo's lineup of high power routers will support professional features like 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. Additionally, installation will be headache free with an easy setup wizard and 24/7 US-based toll free technical support.

"We are proud and excited to share this opportunity to introduce the DD-WRT experience to a broader audience with a leading global provider such as Buffalo Technology, known for exceptional hardware quality and reliability," said Sebastian Gottschall, CTO NewMedia-NET GmbH and founder of the DD-WRT project. "Providing DD-WRT as a factory installed firmware for Buffalo's line of AirStation(TM) High Power Routers enables users to unlock a host of professional features never previously seen in the SOHO and consumer market."

Buffalo's new DD-WRT enabled high power router and access point offering will include WZR-HP-G300NH, WHR-HP-G300N and WHR-HP-GN, all delivering three-in-one functionality that is unmatched in the market. These new wireless solutions can either function as a high power router and access point, a wireless bridge or as a universal range extender. Uniquely, when operating as a universal range extender, all of Buffalo's DD-WRT enabled wireless solutions can connect to any router, regardless of brand, greatly extending the range of wireless coverage, eliminating 'dead spots'.

Pricing and Availability

WHR-HP-G300N and WHR-HP-GN will be available in May 2010 while WZR-HP-G300NH will be available in July. All three units are backed by a limited two-year warranty that includes toll-free, US based 24/7 technical support.
