: WZR-HP-G300NH--Availability & Compatibility
: FrankJN February 18, 2009, 05:30:01 PM
   Where can one buy this router in the US?  It looks like it is advanced.  Also, will it be compatible with a Nintendo Wii and Ipod touch?

I have been watching the buffalotech "buy it from buffalo" area, assuming that the first sales will appear there, hope i am not wrong? Where are you all watching for the first sales? I currently am using the WZR-AG300NH, (a fine router, but firmware 1.48 not updated for the US).

That model is not available in the US... only WZR-AG300NH was ever available in the US. It is comparable except that the HP model has a higher power transmitter.

Colin137,

         Could you explain something to me regarding your answer?  Why in the world would you advertise a product, WZR-HP-G300H, and shop it around to the media in the US if you do not plan on releasing it here?  I do not care if this is a High Powered product or not.  The reason I want this router versus the enter level model that you sell right now is the ability to hook up a USB hard drive, the Gigabit switch, and better protection.  The WZR-AG300H does not have the USB for the Hard Drive and was nearly $300 and Dual band (not needed)! I clearly want to speed the extra $20 over the basic N router that you currently selling for this features.  I had my last N Buffalo router stolen because of stupid contractors and need to replace my crappy FIOS router.  I would like to purchase your product, but I need some type of time frame.  If Buffalo is not planning on selling this router in the US because of the FCC, they should rip out or turn off the high power feature. If that is not an option, Buffalo should remove the product from their website for the US.

odd, when i talked to sales, they said  I should start seeing this product in the USA for sales, around the 1st of March.

1. This is the only product that has Draft-N Wireless

2. This gives you extra distance for wireless computers

3. of course it has the usb

 

I think like sales said, it will be shipping soon.

 

Thanks, Estel Hines

I did notice the WZR-HP-G300NH passed Wi-Fi certification on Feb. 9th, just don't see it being listed for sale anywhere yet.

Colin would you be so kind and helpfull to a big fan of Buffalo and post some kind of bone about the WZR-HP-G300NH.

Is it a conspiracy by the networking companies and IEEE to not disrupt the current state of sub-par equipment that is overpriced and being pimped by Buffalo's COMPeTITION.    I wont point fingers at the wealth  of companies who still think g products and Fe are the only things worth a franklin. yea right.

 

But please some kind of clue like are these routers sitting on a cart on the side of the road in bangledesh and the poor guy cant figure out why their not his popular item.  Cause ill fly there or find the guy on craigslist but come on , I can not find this product for sale anywhere that all these press releases I see speak of.

 

 

And i am not interested in the model lite version that is for sale .   

 

No No,  where is the  WZR-HP-G300NH

 

where is the  WZR-HP-G300NH

 

where is the  WZR-HP-G300NH                     Please man, I hope that Buffalo is on track with this product and there is not some bug or something.  It is a spec wise an awsome product and fair price wise.  Im sure some one that doesnt know what their talking about will spout "it isnt dual band"   yea  well learn how to survey then you might use that.

 

Thank You,

   I think Buffalo just sent out the WHR-G300N ($79) to test the market and try to find bugs for this router before they push out this new high power WZR-HP-G300NH ($99) router, or Buffalo still has legal issues until the legal issue resolved.  Wait until Buffalo found out the problems of WHR-G300N, Buffalo will patch the problems with this new WZR_HP-G300NH.  I predict Buffalo will push this router out within a month or two instead of fix the WHR-G300N problems.  Just like DLink DIR-655 replaced the problem DLink DIR-635 instead of fix the DIR-635 problems.  Just wish Buffalo do better than just make the WHR-G300N disappear and replace it with WZR-HP-G300NH.  Anyway, Buffalo already made the N-finite ($79) disappeared and WHR-HP-G54 ($79) disappeared, and replaced with WHR-G300N.

   Come on Colin. How is it that no one over there at Buffalo has a release date for these new products? I would think the ability to sell wireless products in the US again would be a least a small topic of conversation (definite sarcasm intended :). Not even an estimate on time frame? Do you guys know and cannot say? What's the deal? Throw us a bone. Otherwise, those of us that have waited patiently for some time may be forced to consider other options or products.

Any news on when the wzr-hp-g300nh will start shipping in the US.

 

Here is the link to Buffalo Techs press release at CES 2009 that announced they would be selling in the US at street price of $99.

: What to get?
: boe March 14, 2009, 08:11:12 PM
   For people interested in this model but can't wait any longer which model would you get from any manufacturer?   I tried the next model down from Buffalo and within 30 seconds of plugging it in - it completely froze - I couldn't get in, couldn't get any network connection, couldn't hard reset it, unplugging and everything else was dead.   I was looking in general for units people were looking for and buffalo came up but I'm considering other brands now.   Anyone here thinking of getting another brand or are you willing to wait for this model?

: autumnale March 15, 2009, 02:31:03 PM
   

Well, the WZR-HP-G300NH has a gigabit router.  That's kind of the whole point.  That and the higher-power, built-in antenna, which really isn't all that necessary unless you have a REALLY big house.  :)  You'd probably want to have a few extenders if you have that big a house or a ranch in the middle of nowhere.

 

It also has the USB thing to connect a USB hard drive for easy access to a network drive.  Very useful I think.

If you can read Japanese, or have a translator to read it for you, you'll see that the router is available "2009 Early April" in Japan.

 

When we'll see it, here in the USA, who knows???

and making them jump through hoops so that finally they can sell the product they have in the US.

 

Greedy ass regulators and bull,  by the time buffalo finishes paying off all the freakin dues and bribes there wont be no profit to coup and the ieee will have 802.22 in draft stage......huuaah.

Buffalo owes the Japanese a debt of gratitude at the very least because they were very supportive of Buffalo's case to have the injunctive sales ban in the US lifted.
 
It was Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO)  quasi government research group that was initially successful in getting an injunction imposed through our US court system. The Japanese Co-founding sister group and part holder of the patent being challenged maintained that Buffalo had not infringed or violated the patent in any way.  So if Buffalo has a soft spot for the Japanese right now then I don't blame them.  I'm thankful thankful they are back period!

I am hearing "end of April" for the WZR-HP-G300NH to be in the USA. Sorry for the delay - Buffalo Japan kept putting in more features so the firmware had to go through more testing.

See  common sense via the Japanese Business Culture, not in all of products from there but at least this one,

unlike other competitors that are just way over valued sleaze that are like here, lets make inferior crap and call it innovation....:)

 

As for Buffalo Japan adding more features, ....that would be an act of confidence I say on their part in their product.  Well sooner or later it will get here,  I gotta lay off the energy drinks, really  I read posts chattering up something and I just wanna get the thing now.    Its all computers and cellphones fault. 

 

Remember before cellphones,   how the heck did you know what to do???

Hello, everyone.  I called Jay Pecheck at Buffalo Sales right here in Austin, TX where I live.  I called him on Monday of this week (3/23).  He told me, quote:  "The WZR-HP-G300NH will be available at the end of March for sale everywhere in the US".  I said, "why are people still saying end of April?".  He said, "I don't know.  It will be available no later than the last day of March".  You can find his full contact info at the bottom of this article located at:  http://www.globenewswire.com/newsroom/news.html?d=157279

 

 If his info is inaccurate, I would be very disappointed.

   Well, apparently Jay Pecheck has absolutely no idea what he is talking about or is giving us the run around.  Once again Buffalo has over promised and under delivered.  Seriously, why did Buffalo announce that its products are available again in the U.S. when they are nowhere close to releasing them?  What a disappointment!  Unfortunately, I may have to depart from being a loyal Buffalo user and go with another company that can move a little faster.  I just can't wait any longer.

Sorry I missed this post earlier, Bochista.  Judging by the manual, there is no WDS (Wireless Distribution System) functionality on the device. It can be configured as a simple Wireless Access Point.

What's with all the conflicting info? On the Buffalo US website it says this:

 

The advanced firmware includes Buffalo’s AirStation One-Touch Secure System™ (AOSS™), BitTorrent capabilities, WDS for wireless bridging and multiple levels of wireless and wired security. 

 

So can it bridge or not? I thought this is one of the main differences from the WHR-G300N.

Dear Buffalo,

 

I think one of the best way to regain customer support and trust is by allowing compatibility with 3rd-party firmware developers such as dd-wrt, open-wrt and tomato (which probably won't support it). If Buffalo sends the technician details of the router ahead of time to the developers and is supported on release, then i think it'll be highly supported by the community. Buffalo made a really successful router, WHR-HP-G54, because the support by the 3rd-party firmwares. Just my opinion

Aveyer,

I will know that when support gets our testing unit soon. Frankly, I can't wait to get my hands on this router either!

 

johnbom,

Our engineers have not determined NTFS write support in Linux to be stable enough to be suitable for any of our devices. As far as I know, WDS or "Wireless Bridging" hasn't been an option with ANY of our 802.11n-series router models. Keep in mind 802.11n is still in its Draft stage, and so-called Wireless Bridging wasn't even part of the 802.11b/g standards, it was an additional feature from a few different chipset manufacturers. As of right now I know of no 802.11n router that has WDS-like functions.

All,

 

I've downloaded the WZR-HP-G300NH manual and am a bit concerned.  The screen shots would seem to indicate that there are a lot of configuration options but the manual doesn't go into them.  So, is there a detailed manual available?  If not, could you at let tell me if the device has SNMP support.

   Last post from the moderator on 4/1 said they might be available tomorrow, April 24th.  Haven't heard anything further in a few weeks.  Provantage.com has them available for special order, but who knows what that means.  Guess we'll find out tomorrow morning.

Hello, moderators.

 

The router is not available on Buffalo site, nor anywhere else as of this morning.  Has the tentative date been pushed out again?

 

 Thx in advance.

This morning, I'm seeing stock quantities in our internal stocklist, so this should be shipping within a few days.

We have to do our final examination of the finished product first. Even though we've been through all the development phases of research, hardware, firmware, testing, manual, QSG, etc, it still requires a retail exam before release.

Thoroughly tested and ready to go?  Just a note.  Please remove repeated references to WDS before you create more headaches for yourself with upset customers.  I'd hate to see your re-entrance into US markets marred by unsatisfied customers.  Remember, underpromise and overdeliver.  Many people will be mighty upset if they buy this router thinking it supports WDS only to find out that it does not.  Not everyone reads these forums.

 

Thanks.

Thank you - we thought we had fixed that reference.  All documentation is correct now, and no orders had been made before the update.

good now linksys, and dlink, netgear, and paperweight brands, after this week we will all see after some people are using and pushing these wzr-hp models to the limits, if there will be some hearty evidence as to whether Buffalo did their homework and created a worthy product or not. 

 

Meaning obviously if there is new thread that can organize issues with this device,  please make note of it here so we can get a good following of hits and misses with this model.

 

Thank You all who are very talented at organizing information on this stuff.

: Re: WZR-HP-G300NH--Availability & Compatibility
: drmemory April 27, 2009, 12:42:21 PM

The WZR-HP-G300MH is single band 2.4GHz. To add on the 5GHz radio would increase the cost significantly, as well as requiring a more expensive client card with dual band.

Dual band is not required in the 802.11n spec;802.11n merely gives a range of specifications which includes single band and dual band.

 

If enough people ask for dual band, it's possible.

FYI Buy.com has them on ebay for 103.99 shipped free.  If you use Live.com cash back it is currently 8% which gives you 8 bucks and change back.  You can also get them directly from buy.com for 103.99 shipped and may or may not be able to use a coupon.  Sometimes they email them out from time to time.

 

I went the ebay route with the live cash back.  So far I have received all cashback that I earned but others have reported issues with Live cash back.  Excited to get this thing!

Overall, the new router is great.  I've been an ownder of the 54G model for a couple years and am familiar with all of the menus, etc.  But there are a couple of problems I am experiencing with the new router.

 

1.  When I change a setting, and it says it will restart in XXX seconds, it never does restart.  I close my browsers and everything, and the red asterix light just stays on for several minutes until I unplug, plug back in, and then log back into router menu.  The setting is changed, but it's a real pain to have to do it this way.

 

2.  TimeZone.  I live in CST timezone.  The time is always an hour behind if I choose CST, no matter what NTP server I use, or even if I turn NTP off.  I have to use EST timezone to get the correct time.  Even if I choose "get time from pc", the time is one hour behind my PC time.

 

3.  Under Internet/LAN, VPNSERVER, I have the following error message in RED.  If I choose "generate reccommended IP address" it changes to .17.1 and then I lose all connectivity in my network and have to do a factory reset to even allow me to start over.  This error message never goes away.  The pool is correct.  The gateway is correct.  This message does not make any sense.

 

"The LAN side IP address is set to 192.168.11.1.
Therefore, a PC connected to BUFFALO’s router may be unable to access to the PC on the LAN.
The LAN side IP address and DHCP IP address pool should be changed."

 

I've tried resetting the router several times, starting from scratch, reloading factory firmware, etc., and continue to have all 3 issues above. Is there something I am missing, or does it sound like I have a bad router?

: Re: WZR-HP-G300NH--Availability & Compatibility
: Colin137 May 07, 2009, 05:32:32 PM

1. What settings are you changing that makes that happen?

 

2. The time zone setting is only setting the GMT offset, and does not apply to daylight savings time. CDT time is GMT-5. I'll forward a feature request to get DST functions put on the router.

 

3. Don't worry about that error. That error is only referring to potential issues if you have another Buffalo router on the network with an active DHCP server. I've tested the VPN functionality, and it seems to work fine with the default settings.

 

When you change the LAN side IP address as with the "Generate recommended IP address" button, it merely changes the LAN side IP address and DHCP settings, so restarting your computer should restore connectivity, since it needs to obtain the new IP address to connect to the router.

I like the "multiple SSIDs" to allow for different levels of security, but I'd like to ability to set up exactly what security type I use for each one. Is it possible to change such things via firmware?

 

For example, I'd like SSID1 to use WPA2-AES, and a SSID2 to use WPA-TKIP. For now, I can only set up those combo WPA types, but like I said I'd like to be able to specify exactly which type of security there is.

: Re: WZR-HP-G300NH--Availability & Compatibility
: tbosa May 07, 2009, 07:42:48 PM
   

1.  I replicated the problem again before this post on a couple common settings.  It is not restarting correctly under Internet/Lan ---> LAN when I change the lease period or DHCP address pool.  Also under Internet/Lan ---> DHCP lease when assign manual IP addresses to devices on the network. Under AdminConfig when I change the time or date or password or reload my saved .BIN file.  Is there a "harder" reset that I can do to the unit to restore to factory settings and start over?  I do not recall having these restart problems on the very initial set up of the router when I first took it out of the box.  It only started after I kept fooling with the time zone over and over, and persists even after I "Initialize" or "restore" my .bin file.

 

2.  Thank you....I know it's not a big deal, but would be nice in future releases.

3.  Very good to know.....I don't really need that function, but the bold red error message had me thinking something wasn't set up correctly.

 

Thanks a lot for your quick reply, Colin137.  I appreciate your support more than I know.  And if I'm supposed to be posting these issues/questions in another forum, let me know that as well.

Does anyone know how to configure the WZR-HP-G300NH to offer an english web interface?  I received a unit from a partner directly from Japan but am having a very difficult time using this.  I have noticed that with other routers from Buffalo, the language can be changed but you need to understand Japanese to do this.  Can this be done?  Do I need a firmware udpate?  I am testing this router for use with GigE Vision cameras.

Everyone, sorry my responses took so long.

 

madmook,

I'll forward your request to our corporate office.

 

tbosa,

I'm not seeing that issue on our unit. After adjusting those settings, the browser page may not refresh automatically. Close the browser, reopen it, and log back in.

 

 

pkozik,

On the main page of the interface, there are three columns. The pulldown box at the bottom of the middle column is the language setting. Select the language you want, and click the button to the right. I'm not sure if this applies to the Japanese firmware, though.

 

cyberstupid,

Our engineers have not approved Linux NTFS write support to be stable enough for use in our devices. Regardless, I will forward a feature request to our corporate office, but there's no telling if it will be implemented.

 

Dyno,

The manual has old screenshots of the shared folder settings. I'll let corporate know so they can fix the manual.

 

tarbob,

Here's how to set up VPN: http://forums.buffalotech.com/buffalo/board/message?board.id=0102&thread.id=1601

After 2 days I had no response although other posts were getting response and many others were not so I guess I should of said selective support, sorry.

 

What I was asking for was clearly stated in my post.  I was hoping to hear from some of those that had the unit.  And I do not know why the company can not put out some info, yes we all know results may very depending on conditions.  And you would think that if the company wanted to get sales and had such a supior product as this that they would send it out and get it reviewed.

That's correct. As of right now, the WZR-HP-G300NH will not support WDS, and will not act as a repeater. If you have an existing wired network in the location, you can set multiple units up as simple Wireless Access Points if you need more than one router's worth of coverage.

  Colin137, Could you please address an issue for me?  I became a fan of Buffalo routers when I first learned of the inherent capabilities of the WHR-HP-G54. Specifically; WDS support, Internal signal amplification (awesome compared to the competition), and detachable antenna due to the standard rp-sma jack.

 

While the WZR-HP-G300NH is also an "HP" model, I understand and accept no WDS is currently supported.  My major concern and the purpose of this message is regarding the lack of a jack that would allow the attachment of a High-Gain Directional Beam antenna.  This one feature currently allows me to beam my home network signal to an out building that is over 4 miles Line-Of-Site from home base.

 

Using the WHR-HP-G54 at home base with a .5 watt pen type signal booster connected to a 29db directional parabolic grid antenna, I am able to project a near flawless signal connection to my target location. At the target location, I can and have used either the WLI-TX4-G54HP Ethernet Converter or the WHR-HP-G54 Router (in WDS mode). Since WDS isn't currently supported I would have to use an Ethernet Converter which apparently is still going to be the WLI-TX4-G54HP since the new WLI-TX4-AG300N also isn't equipped with a jack for the attachment of an external antenna.  

 

Bottom line is that the new generation of products currently aren't an option for my application mainly because of the absence of support for using optional high-gain external and directional antennas.

This is not an issue with the WZR-HP-G300NH specifically, it appliesto all of our Nfiniti wireless devices. IEEE 802.11n technology relieson MIMO (Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output) antenna technology. Thismakes connecting external antennas much more difficult than with802.11b/g, hence there is no provision on the Nfiniti devices forexternal antennas.

 

MIMO technology relies on multipleantennas and multipath communication. Instead of the single antennarequired by B/G wireless devices, N devices need at least 2 transmitand 2 receive antennas.

 

WZR-HP-G300NH uses a 3x3:3 antenna (3 Tx, 3 Rx, 3 Streams)

WLI-TX4-AG300N uses a 2x3:2 antenna (2 Tx, 3 Rx, 2 Streams)

 

Anumber of the older B/G products had support for external antennasbecause they only require a single antenna. A point-to-point beamwireless connection using parabolic antennas would be EXTREMELYirritating to set up, as you would need multiple parabolic dishes, onefor each antenna. Pushing multiple antennas through one dish would becomplicated, and would not provide effective multipath communication,thus reducing the performance down to around G speeds anyway. TheWHR-HP-G54 is much better suited to long-range links requiring attachedantennas.

Thank you! I appreciate the detail you went to in addressing the issue. I think flat panel antennas could be adapted/engineered to satisfy the MIMO requirements but would also require reengineering connectors and cabling as well.  The market may not yet be ready to support the expense.

 

I wish Buffalo hadn't stopped manufacturing the WLI-TX4-G54HP Ethernet Converter as I much prefer using it over another WHR-HP-G54 router in WDS configuration. 

 

The router (unfortunately) continuously broadcasts a lockable WiFi signal (even with SSID broadcast disabled) which is why I had to stop using that kind of set-up.  At my target location, such signals are prohibited due to the other sensitive equipment also in use.

 

The WLI-TX4-G54HP Ethernet Converter fits the bill perfectly there but now there's no way to replace or upgrade the target side of the connection using a Buffalo solution. What to do?

Colin, I was hoping you could suggest a suitable replacement for the WLI-TX4-G54HP Ethernet Converter since the new generation of nfinity products doesn't have removable antennae. It's the removable antenna that gave the previous generation it's versatility in deployment. I need the built in four port switch as well.

 

The Ethernet converter is Ideal for applications where you have multiple wired clients that need access to a wireless network without also broadcasting it's own access signal. Buffalo shouldn't have stopped making it.  I don't know of any other off-the-shelf product that does what the WLI-TX4-G54HP Ethernet Converter did.  Do you?

cyberstupid,

That's pretty odd... have you tried changing the channel and SSID?

 

tmGlobal,

I'm not really familiar with other vendors' products. I know that you can still find the WLI-TX4-G54HP at some etailers... try google shopping search.

 

Also, when using 2 WHR-HP-G54 routers in WDS mode, you can set WDS to Enable in WDS Dedicated Mode. This prohibits wireless clients from connecting, so it makes the two routers into sort of a point-to-point wireless bridge between the two networks

   This is beginning to happen on a regular basis now; typically once a week. I lose complete inbound connectivity to any wireless client regardless of N or G use. I cannot connect or ping any wireless device connected to the router. The wireless devices can still do things such as browse the internet though. Restarting the router fixes the issue.

Hey guys, sorry to ask such a basic question, but I have been waiting for a Buffalo N router for a while and I was wondering if it has the feature to forward from one port to a specfic IP and another port. Basically if I want to remote into a specific IP, I remote Mydomain.com:5900 and that forwards to PC1:5900 and MyDomain.com:5901 would forward to PC2:5900 and so on. Most routers will forward a specific port only to a specific computer and the same port, but I need a specific computer and a different port. I love my old WBR-G54 but it seems to be dying, so I'm looking for a replacement.

Thanx,

Sean

You can specifiy the Internet side port and the LAN side port,

here's a screenshot from the WHR-G300N:

   @Aveyer Thanx! Looks nearly like the screen from my current router. I will have to pick one up when $ allows!

I just picked one of these up and have a couple of questions...

 

1)  I want to be able to forward a range of ports to an attached VOIP ATA, but it's configuration seems to only allow single port forwarding.  Am I missing something......how do you configure a range of ports to be forwarded?

 

2)  The VPN passthrough tab has PPTP and L2TP, but no IPSec.  Will IPSec work?

   You could forward a range by using "-" dash. eg. 5060-5065.

: tritch July 18, 2009, 11:37:41 PM
   Thanks, I tried that at first but for some strange reason it wouldn't allow me to put the dash in without a pop-up error. I reset the router and now it accepts the dash...go figure. What about IPSec? Why is this option missing in the VPN passthrough tab?

   What a nice forum this is! I like the kind and detailed way the Buffalo employees react, totally different from the D-Link DIR-855 forum. I'have buyed that device, but todat I ordered the WZR-HP-G300NH. It was not easy to find it online in the Netherlands at an reliable etailer, bu luckyly I found it for a nice price in Germany!

   SmallNetBuilder now has a review of the WZR-HP-G300NH!

Pros    
• Gigabit WAN and LAN with fast routing
• Higher power than other draft 11n routers
• Multiple SSIDs with individual security settings
• Secure browser-based remote access
• Full-featured USB NAS w/ BitTorrent download

Cons    
• No VLAN-separated wireless Guest Zone
• No transmit power adjust

Have been using this router for a few days now,and am having a problem setting up NAS. On the "share folder" page I don't have the first 4 lines of the screen where you can enter a "share folder name" etc. I only have lines 5 and 6 "Access limit function" and "web access". Usb flash drive I have plugged in is recognized, and I have followed all instuction in downloaded manual for adding a usb device.

All other functions I have used so far seem to be fine, i.e. 4 computers on lan plus 3 laptops using both g and n.,plus set up port forwarding no problem.Thought of resetting router, but don't really want to start fom scratch again!

 

Anyone?

 

Cheers............Dyno


Never mind, figured it out myself!

Kudos!

 

++++++++++++++++++++++++

I have same issue, would you please tell me how to fix it?

 

Thanks in advance!

HD_Ride,

 

You can spoof the WAN MAC address. You can set simple access restrictions on the attached drive. You can just configure it manually through http://192.168.11.1/. It should work fine with other vendors' adapters, but as the 802.11n Draft spec has not been finalized, interoperability is not guaranteed. Finally, there is no option to schedule the wifi.

Colin,

Thanks for the reply back, I'll have to research the device a little further....

 

Thanks again!

Colin -

 

Why does my router config look different from the screen shots you posted? I just bought my 300NH this week. I don't have tabs named "Internet/LAN" nor "Security". 

 

ALso, my LAN Config tab has only 1 sub-tab named "MOvie Engine". It doesn't have most of the tabs that were on your screen shots: Port Forwarding, DMZ, UPnP, or QoS.

 

Do I have an out-dated firmware version?  My version is 1.60

Is the switch on the router set to On, Off, or Auto?

: Re: WZR-HP-G300NH--Availability & Compatibility
: JoshC August 21, 2009, 07:49:01 AM
Make sure you have the switch on the "on" position, refresh the browser after that.
: Re: WZR-HP-G300NH--Availability & Compatibility
: sbenard August 24, 2009, 02:51:25 PM
   The switch is on "auto" which is the default setting. Do I need to change it?
: Re: WZR-HP-G300NH--Availability & Compatibility
: Colin137 August 24, 2009, 05:43:05 PM
Set it to "on", reset the device, and try it again. In "Auto" mode, the router autodetects the internet connection, therefore it doesn't give you the same options. Setting it to "on" should give you all the available options.
: Re: WZR-HP-G300NH--Availability & Compatibility
: sbenard August 24, 2009, 06:16:02 PM
   

I changed the switch to the "on" position, and now I get the same options as were shown in the screen captures. However, my throughput has dropped to substantially less than it was before.

 

Any thoughts on why?

Did you refresh the page?  If that dosent work then close the browser out and then open it back up and relogin into the router.

Hey Dyno! How about sharing what you figured out for yourself regarding the missing first 4 lines on the NAS "share folder" page? I seem to be missing them too.
