Buffalo Technology has announced that it will be using the free DD-WRT Linux-based alternative open source firmware in several of its upcoming consumer and small business wireless routers, including the WZR-HP-G300NH, WHR-HP-G300N and WHR-HP-GN. Discussing the new partnership, Ralph Spagnola, vice president of sales at Buffalo Technology, said that he considers the move to be a "natural evolution," adding that, “With DD-WRT, we now deliver professional grade solutions at entry-level prices”.

According to a post on the DD-WRT web site, the routers will feature a customised Buffalo branded interface and include some Buffalo specific features. The WHR-HP-G300N and WHR-HP-GN are expected to be available in May of 2010, while the WZR-HP-G300NH will be released in July in the US and the EU. Pricing has yet to be confirmed.

DD-WRT is sponsored and developed by NewMedia-NET and also runs on routers from Linksys, ASUS, D-Link and others. Other alternative open source Linux-based router firmware includes OpenWrt and the HyperWRT-based Tomato.
