Buffalo WZR2-G300N Detailed Features

One noticeable feature standard to wireless N routers are the 3 antenna providing multiple-input and multiple-output, or MIMO for short - Designed to offer better range and speed. Buffalo Tech have given the WZR2-G300N router some features that I personally haven't seen on other routers namely the AOSS feature, for compatible wireless peripherals, its quick and simple to connect your device to the internet, in an age when we have multiple accounts at multiple websites - One less user/pass to remember cant be bad. The down side is that if you have more than one compliant device you can only connect one at any time using this feature.

The location and size of the AOSS button means that it wont be missed, it would have been nice to have an LED inside the button so that you get some sort of visual feedback when it is use, as only one device can be connected to AOSS at any given time.

Standard status led layout with the addition of a Security led. The Power, Wireless, Router, Internet and Lan led's glow green, Security led glows amber, and if there is a problem, the Diag led glows red.

Standard 4 port Lan layout, For the more novice users the ethernet port is colored blue to distinguish it from the lan ports. The switch on the right is for switching between Router and Access point mode, Note this is a hardware switch and as such it is advised that your preferred mode should be selected whilst power is disconnected to prevent any complications that may occur.

Is the WZR2G300N router compatable with Verizon FIOS technology? And what is it's indoor range where walls and furniture are obstacles?

Is the WZR2G300N router compatable with Verizon FIOS technology? And what is it's indoor range where walls and furniture are obstacles? When will you answer.
