Wireless watchers may have noticed that Buffalo Technology disappeared from the router game some time back, due to a successful suit brought against it by an Australian
company organization. But Buffalo may be getting back in the market, due to a new court decision that stayed the injunction against it selling products based on 802.11a and 802.11g Wi-Fi technology.
CSIRO had been successful in arguing that Buffalo had violated its wireless patents when it sued in U.S. District Court, but that decision was challenged in the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in September. Buffalo then asked the court to stay the injunction, and the company believes a trial will be held in the same court concerning the validity of CSIRO's patents.
While Buffalo has stayed in the networking game in U.S. through its TeraStation network attached storage drives, it could jump back into the router fray here in the near future. I'll keep you posted when and if that decision is made official.
