Buffalo WHR-G300N V2 + WLI-UC-G450


Testing:

Following system was used during the tests:
Lenovo Thinkpad T61
Core 2 Duo T7700 Processor
2x2GB DDR2 800MHz
120GB Verbatim SSD
Intel 4965AGN Wlan adapter

We also tested WHR-G300N V2 with DD-WRT firmware. There was no performance boost nor decrease with it, but we noticed the stability of wireless connection being better with DD-WRT. Also DD-WRT offers you better possibilities to configure your router / access point. All tests in this section have the results of the tests with the original firmware. With WLI-UC-G450 we were not able to test the 450mbps speeds as we did not have a suitable access point in our test lab.

Buffalo WHR-G300N V2 + WLI-UC-G450

As we can see, the access point manages to give us about 7M throughput using the wireless interface. That’s quite a good result considering how many access points there are in my neighborhood and I couldn’t get a clean channel in our test sessions (there were two other access points using the same channel nearby). Also, in 802.11g mode the results between our laptops internal adapter made by Intel and the Buffalo WLI-US-G450 were very similar.

Reliability of WHR-G300N V2 is one of the best ones I’ve encountered. I’ve used the access points for quite a while now and have not had any problems with dropping wlan connections or anything like that. WHR-G300N V2 has worked just like you’d imagine.

Conclusion:

WHR-G300N V2 impressed me big time. It delivered nicely performance wise and was able to route 100mbps internet connection without a problem (with reasonable packet amounts). It delivered well also as far as the  performance of the wireless connection which was very stable. The pricing is reasonable at around 40€ and therefore falling into the” cheaper” routers segment. It lacks the support for 5GHz mode and has only 100M switch in it, but at that price you can’t expect everything.

WLI-UC-G450 worked also as expected. Performance was on par with Intel’s wlan adapter at 300mbps and 802.11g modes. Unfortunately we were unable to test it in 450mbps mode but if your access point supports the mode, there should be no problems in using it.

WHR-G300N:

Pros:
+ Price
+ Performance

Cons:
– Integrated antennas

WLI-UC-G450:

Pros:
+ Performance
+´Supports 450mbps mode

Cons:
– Largeish

  1. i´m totaly unsatisfied with this junk. i can get a connection to my android devices, but i am not able to upload any data.
