    Sorry, but for me, Linksys WRT 54GL or Buffalo WHR-G54S are equivalent because they require the DD-WRT firmware in "client bridge" mode to work in this configuration...

    The advantage of Buffalo is it exists a special offer with pre-installed dd-wrt !

    Buffalo does not pre-install or endorse DDWRT firmware on their routers. This is exactly the kind of confusion presented to the average user that I'm trying to avoid. The poor guy spoke of nothing but getting Buffalo router in private messages thinking it would do exactly what he wanted without realizing there would be no client mode support out-of-the-box - at least I was under that impression given the discussion. I have no objection in bringing up the topic of a Buffalo (or any other router) running client mode on DDWRT, but at least let us present it as clear as possible that it isn't standard issue.

    Sorry but you're not very clear...

    At the opposite, the Buffalo special offer is clear !

    Since this is being brought up let's be clear about this. This is a DD-WRT promotion to offer a modified Buffalo router on DD-WRT firmware; it is not the average Buffalo router found in the shop, which, as with any customization, is not endorsed by the manufacturer and most likely if not definitely without factory warranty, and constitutes a tiny portion of Buffalo routers being sold worldwide, most of which are factory issue! DD-WRT is acting as a custom job reseller offering products they have modified and could have easily offered the same using a WRT54GL or heaven forbid, a WRT54G v5!

    The point is: don't confuse modified routers with standard factory issues.

    Nonsense. This is a DD-WRT modified router being offered.

    I have been very clear about standard Buffalo routers compared with modified versions just like we have been doing with WRT54G/GL/GS.
