The Bittorrent client on the LS-CHL F/W 1.01 does not seem to work reliably. Verified torrents, except for a rare few, never begin, seeds are never detected, and the torrent just hangs there doing nothing. Once in a while a torrent will work, but 98% of the time I find the torrent not moving. These are verified good torrents which work fine with any number of desktop clients. I have moved the port, but to no avail. I have tried manually setting the throughput and using automatic, but nothing seems to change. Is this a firmware issue?
I am running the latest firmware, 1.01-0.43.

I would force flash the firmware, directions are listed below
After the firmware is uploaded then set the unit back to factory defaults

Ok, I tried this, but it doesn't work. The LSUpdater.ini file has the following parameters:
Title = BUFFALO LS-CHL Updater Ver.1.00
WaitReboot = 480
WaitFormat = 500
ProductID = 0x00000010
Name = LS-CHL
VersionCheck = 0
Debug = 1
When running an update, the following message is produced:
PC and LS-CHL firmware version are same. Updating is not necessary.
Apparently the VersionCheck flag is not being heeded.
I still don't see why updating the firmware is appropriate since it is currently the latest version, unless that version is buggy. Maybe I should downgrade it, and would try that, but there are no previous version available in the Downloads section.

If you right click on the program tab at the bottom of your windows bar you will see a debug mode.
With in the Debug mode you will be able to choose to force the firmware.
Forcing the firmware and setting the unit back to factory defaults with in the web interface will over write any corrupted files that exist on the kernel.
