DD-WRT has promised a new revision coming to the Buffalotech DD-WRT that will address the HTTPD issue.

I get the same issue. with 14512 from the buffalo site, I get ~20% packet loss on every IP past the router's WAN IP. With my old non-buffalo-non-dd-wrt router, I get 0%. 

 

This is with an uptime of < 1 hour and no hits to the web frontend.

i was told by buffalo staff that the when the wzr-hp-g300nh dd-wrt firmware is released in september the build revision will be used as the update for the whr-hp-gn and whr-hp-g300n routers too. so all 3 dd-wrt routers will be running the same build versions and future updates are to be released for all 3 routers at the same/similar time.

WHR-HP-GN300N 14998 Upgrade WON'T UPGRADE....

Anybody else having trouble upgrading to the new 14998? 

 

I get an immediate "upgrade failed" trying to update from 14512.

 

The extracted filename I have is a little different from what is posted above by the way - I have "whrhpg300n-pro-v24sp2-14998" which 'sounds like the right thing' but the filename isn't exactly what rickrich is listing.  

 

yet again how nice Buffalo?

which BT site did you use for download.

 

BTW - profanity  does the exact opposite than your intent to be noticed - it usually entices the mods to wait a few days in answering a post.

can someone post where the ddwrt revision mentioned here is located for download .. also is there any update on when the new firmware from buffalo will release .. i have just setup a school with 4 whr-hp-gn routers and the http issue was a major disappointment .. even without logging on to the status page the whole network ( in wds mode ) was suffering major performance issues at given periods during the day ( all due to httpd leak no doubt ) .. some info from buffalo on when the new ddwrt firmware is to be integrated into their friendly release of the firmware would be greatly appreciated .. i dont think i would recommend this hardware again if theres no resolution soon .. its a shame but its the reality of the situation and its also not being profane .. i hope someone responds to this :robotindifferent:

WHR-HP-GN Buffalotech USA DDWRT is at www.buffalotech.com/support/downloads; select your product, then download the FW.

Or, go to WHR-HP-GN BT/DDWRT FW V24-SP2 build 14998

This link is good now, but after the next refresh of DDWRT, the link may change.

 

***This is a .zip file. You need to unzip it before you can use it to upgrade firmware.
