Lithuania is a country in the european union. hence routers sold in Lithuania have to abide by the EIRP limits.

 

the EIRP limits for 2.4ghz routers is set to max 20dbm.

 

so your max power of 17dbm + the 3dbi antenna gain should give you the 20dbm total effective irradiated power.

 

so no issues for you since 17dbm will be the max your allowed and the router is restricted to it.

The thread opener that suggested this dd-wrt firmware build:

 

DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/10/11) std - build 17461

 

is not stable at all.

 

I flashed both 17461 and 17201 and found 17201 to be more stable.

 

The network connections is more consistent even by 1 router hop. (via wireless).

 

This is my 5 cents.

ZenLight:

I recently flashed DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/10/11) std - build 17461 on mine and I haven't had any issues yet.

 

Previously (with the prioprietary DD-WRT from Buffalo) my WiFi would drop every few hours and stay offline until I reboot the router.

Now with the build that the original poster suggested, I'm getting better speeds and it is 100% stable so far (for the past 5 weeks).

Hello Everyone, What I think is the best Firmware at this time is: http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/down.php?path=downloads%2Fothers%2Feko%2FBrainSlayer-V24-preSP2%2F2012%2F03-19-12-r18777/ I have not had any drops or slow downs. I have not had to reboot my router since I updated to this build 18777, on Mar 20 2012. Router Model Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH Firmware Version DD-WRT v24-sp2 (03/19/12) std - build 18777

you can probably still tftp to the router its original firmware. follow the unbricking guide on dd-wrt forum.

I wouldn't follow the guide on the dd-wrt forum, there are to many different ones by different users to count, follow the guide in the dd-wrt wiki that i wrote, it has a high success rate of recovery when used step by step.

phoned buffalo support asking about dd-wrt firmware updates on the v1 version of this router. they informed me that the v1 is end of line and no longer supported.

 

looks like i wont be getting any more buffalo devices again. shoddy support and they end of line the hardware before they even got it working properly.

I use the latest DD WRT releases here:

Everything seems to work OK on my WZR-HP-G300NH.
