And wzr_hp_g450h-dd-wrt-webupgrade-MULTI.bin is the file to use?

Hi JaniN83; if you have already changed to vanilla DD-WRT then use the ****webupgrade_MULTI.bin files.

If you are on any OFFICIAL Buffalo DD-WRT release (I.E. r20025, r18795, r17140) then use the ****factory-to-ddwrt.bin files.

UNLESS you are using the decrypted "Buffalo" r20025 release from Wendell Pinegar, in which case you can use the ****webupgrade_MULTI.bin files to upgrade to vanilla DD-WRT without the need for the factory-to-ddwrt versions...

Hi!

Noticed one hiccup using the latest version on my router. The PC I was using is connected with WLAN to the router, and suddenly the signal went from maximum to about a half and speed dropped a lot. Also, when I tried to Access the router's web management with this PC, it asked for my credentials but said error 400.. After a router reboot this was fixed, but does anyone know what caused this or is anyone else having this issue? But like I said, it only happened once so far, so maybe it's not going to happen anymore.. Thanks :).

Hi JaniN83; that sounds like a background noise issue rather than a firmware issue... It's possible rebooting the unit simply forced it to use a less noisy channel to broadcast on...

Has anybody tried r24118 yet? Does using the webupdate version retain settings (when upgrading from r23919)?

Haven't tried it and not sure I'm going to after reading the posts in the following forum: http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=897131&sid=3ffc113fd87a9a99a9fa015db63448de

It's not really Buffalo specific, but many are reporting errors there on different routers.

Hi all, as i have said several times, unless you actually have a problem don't upgrade for the sake of upgrading...

I have three G450H routers... 24118 has worked without fault on two of them (Both EU/UK versions BTW); HOWEVER the US version of the G40H in my possession was bricked by the update and i am currently going through the lengthy and particularly technical process of un-bricking the thing...

For this reason i would reiterate DO NOT update to 24118 unless you have to fix a problem that cannot be fixed by reverting to an older revision than you currently have or by only going as far as 23919, i will always post once i have successfully got a revision to work on all three of my routers... Until then, and even when i do post, you update at your own risk as whilst the model may be the same there are always different hardware revisions and regional versions that means the update may not work for you... Only official Buffalo versions up to r20025 are guaranteed not to brick your router...

If you have a US router i would avoid risking it at all for now as i am unsure why 24118 works on the EU/UK versions but bricked my US router at present...

@crammed i have always said to RESET all settings to their factory default with an update... So if you want to try and retain settings you are welcome to try, but always be prepared for there to be issues further down the line... This could be anything from settings that do not work correctly or at all through to instant bricking of the router on update if a settings functionality is removed or changed drastically... For the sake of pen and paper and a few minutes copying settings over manually it's not worth the risk trying to retain settings...

@coypu76 i said several posts back i had only updated link in First Post, please do not add other links to confuse people.

At present, all BETA releases are found at

ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas/

I use the ftp links because the dd-wrt.com website takes longer to load and isn't always up to date...

There is also a new release r24160 that can be found at
ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas/2014/05-27-2014-r24160/buffalo_wzr_hp_g450h/

I shall update the FP once i have tested on all my G450H's without problems...

Hi all,

Just an update on the 24xxx revisions and the G450H i am still having real issues with these versions on US based hardware, my EU/UK routers seem fine with updates, the US one seems to either brick or drop connections.

Unless you have an EU/UK router my advice remains the same, do not risk the update if you have a US hardware version of the router, if you want to risk it with an EU/UK router please only update if you have issues that need fixing.

Otherwise stick to 23919 or another 23xxx revision that works for you.

I'll update if i find a solution or a 24xxx revision appears that doesn't brick my US router...
