This router is the little brother of the WZR-HP-AG300H. Not many things set the two apart but nevertheless the heavy user might find these to be a deal breaker.
About the Router
The router packs 64mb Ram used for running DD-WRT firmware. As the other routers in this series the WZR-HP-G300NH has the AOSS one push button setup making the installation and setup a breeze. The router supports both N150 and N300, but it is not a dual band router as the big brother.
Using the WZR-HP-G300NH to Unblock and Other Services
As with all the other routers in this series the WZR-HP-G300NH runs DD-WRT firmware. This will allow us to connect to Unlocator (Yes that is their name) and hereby bypass the US only restrictions of . This is even a great solution for viewers in countries such as Canada that already have , but want to larger selection available at the US site.
Devices such as the Apple TV, Roku Box, Boxee Box, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii, Nintendo 3D, HD TVs, Blu-Ray players and set-top boxes do not have a build in VPN client. This is where the WZR-HP-G300NH comes in handy, as it will be able to create the VPN tunnel needed to unblock . The Buffalo router series is recommended by Unlocator for in router VPN connections.
3/5 Stars.The lack of dual band connectivity is a deal breaker for me. Having a lot of older devices in the household as well as new laptops running in the N-network, then the missing dual band decides it for me. Without the dual band you are forced to run at the speed of the slowest device on the network. Adding about $20 you will get the dual band connectivity and double the ram from the WZR-HP-AG300H – that is a no brainer to me.
Are the steps of configuring the router to the VPN posted somewhere? Also how is the Apple TV then connected via the router instead of via my normal wireless modem which logs my actual IP address instead of the VPN IP address
