Storage / Web access
« Last post by epsteel on October 19, 2017, 02:48:09 pm »
Hi all,
I have been given a HS-DHGL94D NAS box. The people who gave it to me were not computer literate and would not have payed around with it much other than using as a server.

I want to set up web access as one of our offices has a Buffalo NAS DL500 and the manual I have downloaded does not match the device they have.
However that box does not require a BuffaloNAS.com key and mine does.
I have entered a name and a key and it tells me the name or password is incorrect?

I have chosen a Welsh name, so unlikely to be used but tried three variations of it anyway, with different passwords, with same result.

How can I 'reset' the device. It has not been used by me in over a year and I only just discovered web access from the other NAS and wanted to try on mine at home.?

TIA

Wireless / Re: KRACK WPA2 Vulnerability - are firmware updates available?

This is my last post on this subject I think.  :-)

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH this is what I did. I went to the beta link that I posted above ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas/2017/

I downloaded the file named file named wzr-hp-ag300h-dd-wrt-webupgrade-MULTI.bin since that's the model I have.

I opened the admin | firmware page on my router.  I made a backup of the current settings.  I selected the file and clicked the Upgrade button.  It took 300 seconds, then rebooted and voila!

This is not to say these steps will work for you, but they worked for me.  I think most of the instructions on the DD-WRT Wiki are more of a reaction to worst-case scenarios or one-off situations.  Not to say that if you do the same thing I did it won't brick your router, which is always a possibility, so be ready in case that happens.  I went in with my eyes open, you'd better do the same.

I just found this in the warranty information for DD-WRT routers on the Buffalo website.

Open Source DD-WRT Routers are factory pre-loaded with the open source operating system, DD-WRT. All development, firmware updates, technical and configuration support will be provided by DD-WRT and the DD-WRT community. Buffalo Americas provides a limited hardware warranty that covers malfunctioning hardware. Hardware warranty support is available for 90 days from purchase via phone or via email for the entirety of the warranty period.

It looks like we're all on our own.  I don't think Buffalo is going to help. This is one of the reasons I bought the Buffalo routers and recommended them to customers, but that policy just changed for me.

Go to this page: http://dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Supported_Devices#Buffalo
Find your model, then in the column on the far right side click the notes or installer version.
After that you're on your own.  I've done this before and it has always worked, but the instructions can be a little bizarre at times.

While researching, my question was will doing this actually address the KRACK vulnerability? So I'm passing along the next thing I found, the betas that have been released for DD-WRT, hopefully for your model. Anything after 10/10/2017 should have addressed this.
ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas/2017/

I would flash to the latest standard DD-WRT on the first page linked, then apply the beta patches.  But that's just me.

Good luck.

Storage / TeraStation Live HD replacement
« Last post by gtflip on October 18, 2017, 11:02:07 pm »
One of the drives in my TeraStation Live (HS-DHTGL/R5) just died, so I was looking at replacing it.  While searching, I came across this thread which talks about it not supporting larger drives due to power consumption.

The manual says, "Do not use a replacement Hard Disk Drive which has more than 0.92A at 5Vdc and 0.9A at 12Vdc for the specification of current load."  All the WD drives I looked at the specs for used at least 1A (if I'm reading them correctly), including the Green ones.

So, did I misunderstand or are there not many drives that will work according to the spec?

Thanks!

DO NOT BUY A BUFFALO LINK STATION!!! YOU WILL LOSE EVERYTHING WITHIN MONTHS!!!!

Retarded comment, how long have you had your LS-WXL? Considering it hasn't been made in roughly 5 years, i'd imagine you've had it more than a few months.

Units fail from every manufacture. I have a still using a Buffalo HD-HLAN from 2005 that is still working fine.
