My device is also bought from EU area and I'm using it here at EU area/Finland.

 

I would be very happy to test the previous firmware too...  :)

Hi Paul,

 

Do you need any more information from my unit? For example the settings, serial number or something else? I would be glad to submit anything what might be helpful.

 

With best regards,

 

-make

Have you contacted your local support for firmware options?

Now re-starting!

Firmware Upgrade Fail!

Estimated time to restart about 60s.

Please Wait... 60s. later, if the page does not automatically refresh, click here.

 

Is the firmware update worth the hassle of trying to resolve this issue?


 I get the same error trying to update to 1.52

At this time I would not try to update until another firmware is posted.

I managed to update to 1.02 and then to 1.52 last night. One thing I also did was to shorten the filename of the 1.52 firmware, as it's extremely long and could be what's 'confusing' the router.

doonyakka, please can you be more specific ?

What was the change you made to the filename ?

   I just shortened it to WZR2-G300N_1.52_1.22_EU_1.4.1.0.bin. I don't know if that's what did the trick, because I'd previously upgraded to v1.02. But it might be worth a try :)

Hi,

i have the same problems. I contacted the german support but they answered that they donīt have an old firmware to downgrade and that it should work.

"It worked for us so it should work for you" 

Iīm very disappointed with the support, because they did not even try to help me!

I have a lot of disconnections, so i hoped the new firmware would fix it.

My first Buffalo-Product and finally my last.

 

Can someone send me an older firmware than 1.26 ?

Same problem here. Tried renaming the file, no luck. Is there any more progress on this?

 

Thanks!

   Yeah- after a long time without firmware updates for this model, I don't think I'd buy another Buffalo product.. perhaps it has to do with their legal troubles, but I don't know how long they expect us to wait if they want us to remain loyal to the brand..

   So do we have an ETA at all of when the latest firmware release will be? I've been unable to get in to Comcast's new Smartzone due to my Buffalo WZR2-G300N router and I am hoping a firmware update will fix that problem. I am able to get into it hard-wired to my desktop from the modem very quickly and hard wired through the router to my desktop very very slowly. Wirelessly, it just times out. I've tried my friend's router and it works perfectly. Any other website loads great and I have had no other complaints about this router til this issue came to be. Any suggestions? Thanks.
