OK first let me tell you that I am sorry for asking something in my first post...I really do feel bad for it, but I have a problem.

I live in colombia(yep they are great TH fans out here me and my bro,lol)and buying a router here is like paying someone to build one its expensive, and to order one I must have a USA credit card and a lot of money coz here the taxes are 16% plus 10% arancel...well it ends up being 3x the original price...so that sucks.

OK heres my situacion, I have a friend right now in miami a hes coming on sunday here...and I am ordering a router but I dont have a clue about routers( ask about procesos,video cards ram etc...but no routers!) so these are my 2 options right now...... please tell me if they are good choices or if theres a better choice out there at the same price?

Frankly, buffalo is just for eating but that is only my opinion. I would go with some of the other more commonly known brands like linksys, netgear, dlink, etc... But since I'm a cisco person, I would say go with an Aironet... but you have to sell some body parts to pay for them.

Funny, Buffalo is actually among the better price/value performers for wireless routers. Look at DD-WRT's recommended router list -- you'll see Buffalo there above Linksys.

However, some Trendnet PCI wireless that I've used have been very flakey. Another cool possibility is this: Get 2 Buffalo, set up one as the AP / wireless router, and another as a client mode bridge -- replacing the PCI wireless card.

I don't recall atm whether or not the Buffalo does this out of the box. It might. If it doesn't, you can certainly add that capability using DD-WRT provided the specific model is in DD-WRT's supported hardware list.
