Update: Hide My Ass is working with Buffalo to restore connectivity as the Buffalo routers have run into temp problems with the network. Use the ASUS RT-N16 instead as it connects to VPN just fine.

Looking for the ultimate VPN router then look no further. With and impressive 128mb RAM to run the DD-WRT firmware, this is a monster router set to give you the best VPN throughput on the market.

About the Router

This router is currently the king of the Buffalo Airstation routers and deservingly so. As mentioned above the WZR-HP-AG300H comes with 128 mb of ram, and allows the firmware to process VPN tunneling (What is VPN) super efficient and hereby making sure that you are not loosing speed on your connection due to a bottleneck in the router. On top of that the router works as a dual band network with speeds up to 300Mbps and Creates 802.11n (2.4GHz / 5GHz), 802.11a, 802.11g and 802.11b networks.

Perfect for Unblocking and Other Services

Here at VPNfreedom we are of course focused on the VPN capabilities of the router. The reason being that this router is an obvious choice if you are looking to unblock from outside the US, or simply want access to the American version of that has a much larger selection than any other country.

Devices such as the Apple TV, Roku Box, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii, Nintendo 3D, HD TVs, Blu-Ray players and other set-top boxes do not have a build in VPN client. By using a router like the WZR-HP-AG300H that is connected to Unlocator (Yes that is their name) then you can access on these devices from outside the US.

Conclusion

5/5 Stars.With the easy AOSS one push button setup, powerful CPU and plenty of Ram, FTP server feature, USB Storage Port, Dual Network options and build in VPN client then this is a winner. On top of that the price point is realty aggressive. A must have in my book no matter if you are looking for a VPN router or just a regular router for every day use.

The router is just $89 from Amazon

 

UPDATE: Turns out that if you buy the router in Asia the you have to switch to the DD-WRT firmware as it is installed but not enabled by default. Refer to page 19 of the manual:

    I do not know the router you have, but many people have a dual setup like that since almost all dsl lines come with a router from the ISP.

    Does this router support wireless use?

      Yes – as stated in the article” 802.11n (2.4GHz / 5GHz), 802.11a, 802.11g and 802.11b networks”. In other words it support all wireless standards on the market today.

    Thomas – thanks for the great articles … does the Buffalo Airstation WZR-HP-AG300H router come with instructions on how to use it with a VPN service?  That is, entering all the VPN parameters (not sure what they are – would assume it’s an IP or web address, and user ID/password.)

    How about setting up one router to be hooked up to another?  That is, from the wall, the internet signal first goes to my local router, and then I’m assuming it’d go to my Buffalo Airstation (and would I need to change parameters within for that?)

      Hi John you are welcome. Regarding the actual setup I think you should take a look at the following forum post at the Hide My Ass forum as it has a complete walktrough of the steps needed to setup the VPN connection: http://forum.hidemyass.com/showthread.php?tid=2700

      Regarding using the bufallo with another router such as one supplied by your ISP you simply use the supplied ethernet cable and plug the Bufallo into the other router: Wall plug-> ISP router -> Bufallo

    Hey Thomas,

    Thanks for the great info on here. Great service..     Quick question:

    I have a BluRay player that has and vudu added on (Magnavox MBP-5130 with a built in wifi network connection option). I currently watch and stream through my Magnavox player in the US. 

    I have plans to go to Europe, Australia and India for 4 months. If I buy VPN service through Hide my ass and purchase this router you recommend Buffalo Airstation AG300H, do you know if I would be able to connect my Magnavox BluRay and stream without any problems?

    Thanks, Jim

      Apart from possible connectivity problems with the blurayplayer to the different tv systems you should be fine with the router. However, you might be better off just bringing a laptop.
