Review – Ruckus ZoneFlex 7761-CM Outdoor High Performance and Power Professional Access Point / Cable Modem


I was fortunate enough to score a professional class access point + DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem device for a fraction of the official cost (somewhere towards $2,000!!!). I bought it because my house is built from some weird materials and I normally need 4 different access points to cover it from side to side. I have a DLINK Dir 615, one DIR 655, the Time Warner’s given Arris TG1672g and a Buffalo AirStation WZR-600DHP and used all of them to cover my house. We are using our tablets a lot and they are not powerful/sensitive enough to work from every room. While my 4 AP solution worked, it was annoying to switch from one SSID to another as we would move from living room to the bedroom. As I mentioned, I got a Ruckus ZoneFlex 7761-CM rather cheap (still a bit more expensive than an office AP/router though) so I decided to give it a try. What you will read in this review is the description of my experience with it for the last couple of months.

Note: While I am only using it as a standalone access point to cover my own home, Ruckus ZoneFlex 7761-CM can be used in a mesh managed by a ZoneDirector controller capable of controlling hundreds of APs. This solution is not part of the current review.

Buffalo Nfiniti Wireless-N WZR-HP-G300NH router Review

I bought the Buffalo Nfiniti Wireless-N WZR-HP-G300NH router because my good old Belkin started to die after about 2 years of heavy usage and I also got a pretty good deal from Amazon. I looked around for a while for a decent N router under $100 that also had Gigabit ports and some kind of NAS functionality and WZR-HP-G300NH seemed to fit the bill. If you look on the WEB, you will also find out that it provides DD-WRT compatibility which is certainly a bonus, and it is claimed that it provides a higher transmitting power than other routers on the market. Let’s put these claims to test and see how it performs.
