Buffalo has replaced three of its high power routers with updated versions.
The new AirStation HighPower wireless routers ship with an updated version of DD-WRT firmware installed, which is also available for download for "select legacy models". The new DD-WRT is said to provide "greater stability and increased performance".
The new routers also include a new user setup wizard and printed admin and access card. The combination is designed to get users connected to the Internet via a secure wireless network within "minutes of opening the box".
