The new Buffalo AirStation Wireless Router (WHR-1166D-EU) is ready for the latest 11ac smartphones, tablets, or laptops and designed especially for users focused on their wireless connections.

The WHR-1166D provides up to 866 Mbps transfer speed in the 5GHz band and simultaneous transfer speeds of up to 300 Mbps in the 2.4GHz band. Furthermore, easy setup is a few clicks away via a simple User Interface that's accessible on a computer, smartphone, or tablet. Buffalo's new AirStation is also very family-friendly with Norton ConnectSafe web filtering as well as Parental Control that allows you to limit the amount of time specific users are connected.

4* Gigabit - not so much!!
Reviewed by Robert on 19/01/2015
This is a good value Wifi-AP if you have an existing modem. I wanted something with 5Ghz - this delivers in spades. I can disable 2.4Ghz WiFi and do quad channel bonding on 5Ghz. Indoors the range and speed appears to be good for 5Ghz (Nexus 7 & Oneplus One - used through multiple internal walls).

The WebUI is loaded up with features. You can:
schedule the device to turn off or sleep on a full 7-day hour by hour schedule (nice!!)
you can change the MTU
you can enable or disable the inbuilt DHCP Server (including allowing IP passthrough from an existing Router/DHCP Server)
you can enable or disable UPnP
you can enable or disable both the 2.4Ghz and 5.0Ghz access
you can set separate SSID names for 2.4Ghz & 5.0Ghz

However a have to ding the device a star... The only port that is Gbit is the main WAN patch port. If you're doing IP/DHCP pass-through you have to use one of the 4x 100Mbit LAN patch ports.

The only port that doesn't need to be Gbit - in any usage scenario is the WAN port!!
