Wireless / Help with my wireless setup
« Last post by Yastastic on April 13, 2017, 04:56:19 am »
Hi all
   Haven't posted in here in a while but am hoping someone will be able to give me some guidance as my networking knowledge is severely limited. I want to be able to access files on my LinkStation Live both using the wifi provided by my AirStation and also by using Ethernet cables. So for example I want to access files using my desktop PC which is connected via Ethernet and also using my Chromecast 2 connected to my TV.

I have attached an image of my current network setup at home.

The issue I am having is my ability to play 1080p video files using my Chromecast in my bedroom where I get severe buffering. Does anybody have recommendations on what I can do to get improved performance from my Chromecast? Would it be better to buy the Ethernet accessory for the Chromecast or to buy an additional Wifi access point for the 2nd floor?

Any help appreciated!

Cheers.

There's a community release almost 1500 revisions newer than the buffalo for the V1 WZR-600DHP here: ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas/2017/04-06-2017-r31825/buffalo_wzr-600dhp/

For the V2 WZR-600DHP it's here: ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas/2017/04-06-2017-r31825/buffalo_wzr-600dhp2/

I've only used this revision via the 1750DHP on the US, RU and UK/EU routers i own. So can't be 600DHP specific; but the issues with bridges and repeaters seem resolved...

If moving from Buffalo, use the factory-dd-wrt-NEW version
If moving from DD-WRT community the web-flash should be OK (If not try again with the factory-NEW)

Whatever you do select "Reset to Factory Defaults" (Or similar) when updating the router otherwise chaos will ensue (and maybe a bricked router). This is generally good practice when updating anyway; for the sake of some pencil and paper time...

Also consider a 30/30/30 reset before doing ANYTHING with updates; it's not necessary all the time but may eliminate some issues with some versions of the router before doing an update and risking a brick...

Storage / Shared folders - Access denied after firmware update
« Last post by cboyer on April 12, 2017, 01:55:07 pm »
Hi guys,

I have a Terastation 3400R.
This morning I ran the firmware update 1.7.1

Since, users of the NAS cannot access the shared folders anymore. No change were made in the configuration. The users have the same rights than before the update.


I can see the \\NAS root, but as sonn as I try to connect a shared folder, I am prompted for credentials (that's normal), but I have that error.

Please could you help me, we have files used for work...


Best regards

@Juan, sorry for the delayed reply. Even if using the Buffalo DD-WRT ALWAYS use the factory-dd-wrt file the first time with the appropriate reset option(s) selected. 30/30/30 reset is not normally required first, but do it just to eliminate any potential problems.

My recommendation on version is as follows; if you want tested and rock solid, go with the r27805 release; it's served me well and my longest used firmware. If you want cutting edge release, but with the security of it being tested on US/RU/EU routers by myself, go with r31825 below... The first release I've trusted in a long time; despite it braking 29MB in size it didn't brick a single router!

My first post in a LONG time here; new firmware is tested and working on my US, RU & UK/EU routers. r31825 is go!
For all updating you MUST do the factory reset with this update, no exceptions, otherwise bricked router will ensue. File size is >29MB. All the usual disclaimers apply (read the OP)

I'll update the OP accordingly...

Storage / Re: BuffaloNas.com just not working (from external PCs) for me
« Last post by davidsco27 on April 10, 2017, 05:05:33 pm »
My previous post was deleted, most likely because the Buffalo incompetents and moderbators don't want people to know just how incompetent they are.  Though, it's a little late since everyone who uses their products already does.  Apparently, their Buffalonas Webaccess portal DOES NOT WORK.  I was able to log into my NAS from outside by finding my external IP and adding the port I opened to the address. That works fine. Their useless portal sends you to a WRONG IP address.  Do it that way, once setup, find out your External IP on a site like Whatsmyip.com and when outside your network, login to that ip colon the port you opened ex.  173.23.63.13:9000 and you'll get to a page where you can login to your NAS

Storage / Red light flashing 7 times
« Last post by jsolutions@gmail.com on April 10, 2017, 04:52:23 pm »
Hi,

I have a LinkStation Pro Quad - LS-QV4.0TL/R5.  It was working great up until I moved and had it powered off for a couple months.  When I powered it back up, the red light would flash 6 times. 

1.  re-seated the drives, no change
2.  I've reset it according to documentation, and now it flashes red 7 times
3.  Only one drive (position #1) lights up.  I removed the 1st (of 4) drives, then only drive #2 would light up... same with #3 and #4
4. Won't connect w/NAS navigator2

Any help would be appreciated - Thanks!
