Anything in the logs when wifi disconnects etc? and what client equipment and adapters are you using, try changing the wireless channel too.

No weirdness in logs (mainly due to the fact that I have to power cycle the router). I've tried most of bands/channels combinations, no change. And the client is either Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG (Toshiba laptop) or 2.4 GHz early 2009 MacBook Pro. For example multi-threaded download from ftps server just dies after a few transferred MBytes on both clients and I have to power cycle the router to get wifi back again. WRT610N is already on its way.

Buffalo tech has the worst online support behind Asus. There is well over 25 bugfixes in version 1.70, yet we have heard nothing on a US version. I can't wait to put dd-wrt on mine. This is a joke.

nice one Aveyer. any idea how to use .enc file? is that just the firmware, that's supposed to be uploaded to the router?

btw got wrt610n today, just hooked it up, ran the provided CD (which I rarely do, being in IT for the past 12 years, I know WHAT can get onto such CDs :-D )

and voila, here I am, downloading full line speed, being 2 doors and 15 meters away from the router.

 

curious, if I should update the firmware on buffalo and sell it locally (if 1.71 fixes things), or if I should just not bother and return it ASAP.

what would you do?

Just updated to v1.71 without problem, they appear to have added WDS, 3G USB modem support and ECO settings (a schedule to sleep the router at the set time). Just upload the .enc to the router through the update page(with an ethernet connection, never wirelessly). Only use the EU firmware if you got it in the EU, you'll have to wait for the firmware on the US site if bought in the US.

went through upgrade, had actually problems connecting back again (wireless timed out), so I re-configured AP via quick wizards. I am back online now, but... none of the issues I've had is fixed. Sorry to say this, maybe I've got faulty unit, but it's going back. So much for Buffalo brand :(

Thanks for your support though and enjoy this otherwise lovely unit :)

The firmware posted on EU website works for US/CA as well. Just upgraded without any issues.

Worry no more, dd-wrt is here.

 

Edited by Admin - It's OK to discuss DD-WRT - but do not post links to it, as there are many novices reading these forums, who might try it, make one mistake, and brick their units.

Has anyone tried to update the firmware with the dd-wrt .bin version using the web interface in windows?  I have tried and had no success.

You can't do a dd-wrt upgrade like that on wzr. You have to boot into ubuntu (use a live cd), install tftp and then send the dd-wrt to the router. Read the wiki link posted above.

Why was v1.71 taken down and now v1.66 is up?
