I assume this is for firmware for EU models too?

 

For the WHR-G300N (EU)

 

1: Please add the options of which wireless mode to choose (b only, g only, n only,b/g/n mixed etc)

 

2: QoS where you can prioritise upload and download by IP or MAC(maybe bandwith throttling by IP/MAC too).

 

Thanks.

sure - Europe, Australia, bring on the feature requests - just let me know which product, and which continent, and I'll send them on to Buffalo Japan.

Great, I've posted my wishlist above :smileyhappy:.

Well, I am from Hong Kong...and I wish you could take my advice also.

My router is WZH-HR-300NH.

 

My wish list is as follows:

1) function to assign IP address of LAN computers according to their MAC
addresses

2) Wireless power adjustment

3) USB - printer server function
4) range of IP address could be set even when DHCP disabled
5) OpenVPN server function
6) improvement of torrent BT download so that files with different languages
could be downloaded & read, files within a torrent could be selected to be
downloaded
7) jumbo frame function (allow enable/disable & value setting)
8) QoS for allocation of bandwidth to individual IP
9) naming of port forwarding profile allows space or underscore
10) WDS
11) traffic monitoring & management function (for individual IP)
12) telnet server & client
13) SSH server & client
14) green ethernet function

quite a long list but such features are awesome...

 

BTW, I wish Buffalo could really keep up to have the firmware update more frequently to add more values to their products. It appears that Buffalo has more support to japan users than others and the firmware update is not frequent as other brands.

     Isn't no.1 already in the firmware? You can already set static DHCP leases.

   Maybe i am not clear what i mean for 1) is the router could detect the MAC address of LAN devices and assign preset IP according to their MAC so that each device could always get the same IP even under DHCP enabled. what i mean for 2) is to have a parameter to adjust the mW of transmission power.

   The routers can already do no.1, static DHCP leases (or manual assignment).I use it on the WHR-G300N for alot of stuff.

   Aveter, thx for reminding me. I finally got the function DHCP lease working...although I need to restore factory setting first and start from scratch to set up everything, because the router kept refusing me to make any changes at first. I dun no why. BTW, thx for Aveter.

   Login to the router and go to Internet/LAN>DHCP Lease and you can add the client information at the top then you will have a manual lease.

For the WZR-HP-G300NH

1. Add  ability to block internet access for a given time range (say midnight to 6 am). 

2. Have that restriction be done by ip address or mac address or by range of ip address.

   WDS .........it is the most important feature for me. I already bought  WHR-G300N and WZR-HP-G300N for WDS but now is useless .... nobody tell me they are not support WDS they have button change to AP make me think that they will support WDS(I know that was my fault).... POOR now only I can do is hope that they will support in the future.  ( I am in HONG KONG)

   Forgot something: Add channels 12 and 13 to all EU models of Buffalo routers, since they are available in the EU.
