Buffalo is one of the very few vendors that have supported DD-WRT unofficially for many years. Officially, their partnership has spanned just over three years and many router revisions. In fact, the image above, the WBR-B11 was the very first Buffalo AirStation to support DD-WRT when v23 SP2 was launched around mid 2006, nearly a decade ago.
Moving forward to 2015 where both Buffalo and DD-WRT both celebrate the launch of the latest open source solution, DD-WRT NXT. As of this writing, DD-WRT NXT is relatively new to the market and as such supports just four routers at this point, three of which come from Buffalo Technology.
The AirStation Extreme WXR-1900DHP is at the higher-end of solutions coming pre-installed with this firmware sporting typical AC1900 technology with 600 Mbps capabilities on the 2.4GHz band and 1300 Mbps on the 5GHZ band. Adding to this, the Buffalo WXR-1900DHP features a Broadcom BCM4709 SoC running at 600MHz with 512MB of RAM and 128MB of flash. To date, this solution, purpose built for NXT, carries the largest amount of RAM flash combination we have seen in the lab.
The specifications for the WXR-1900DHPD shows this solution maintains compliance with IEEE802.11ac/n/a/g/b featuring concurrent dual band support over the 2.4 and 5GHz bands. Wireless security is handled by the standard WPA/WPA2 AES standards. The rear of the unit houses four auto-sense gigabit Ethernet ports, along with a single WAN, while a single USB 2.0 is placed on the rear I/O, and the USB 3.0 finds its home on the front.
The Buffalo WXR-1900DHPD carries a MSRP $179.99 of with a three-year warranty.
