Thanks, but the "firmware" files are only for the update of the existing application and the "utilities" files are for NAS Navigator2 which does not detect our TeraStation. That's why we need the TSNavi.exe file.

Anyway, thanks again.

Guidelines and more / TeraStation TS-RHTGL/R5 Teranavigator download
« Last post by Marc Paulais on September 23, 2020, 09:35:49 am »
Hello,
we want to setup our old TeraStation TS-RHTGL/R5 with a new PC but no longer have the TeraNavigator-CD.

We only found the TSNavi.exe for the TS-RIGL/R5 on the net, but it apparently does not work for the TS-RHTGL/R5 as the installation can not be completed.

Does anyone know where the TSNavi.exe for the TS-RHTGL/R5 can be found?

Thanks a lot.
Marc

Wireless / WZR-HP-G300NH and Gargoyle/Openwrt
« Last post by Moosewala on September 22, 2020, 04:32:17 pm »
Well, I received a refurbished wz-hp-g300nh today to replace my whr-hp-g300n (which I sold).  As you may (or may not) know I have been frustrated with both the 'user friendly and dd-wrt (both buffalo branded and community releases) performance in managing the atheros chipsets.  I decided to test out Gargoyle/Openwrt to see if anything it is any better.  I also decided to test the signal strength between the versions, all measured with the unit in the same exact location/position at a distance of 22 ft.   I used InSSider to take the measurements.

 

This unit came loaded with the 'user fiendly' fw.  I have it setting right next to my wzr-hp-ag300h so that I can compare the signal strength between the 2.  I also used the signal measured with the 'user friendly' as a baseline for all further tests.  User friendly=-50, wzr-hp-ag300h=-50.

 

Next I upgraded to the buffalo released dd-wrt 16783.  As expected it had the TX power limited to 17dBm.  While I had the dd-wrt firmware loaded, I also ssh'd to the unit and saved off the mtd partion data for the u-boot, u-boot-env, nvram, and ART partitions, so that if anything really drastic happens I have them to restore.  dd-wrt=-51

 

Next, I tftp'd Gargoyle 1.3.14.  Setting up Gargoyle as an AP was extremely easy.  I was somewhat surprised (ad slightly dissapointed) that the Gargoyle web interface would not allow a TX power setting above 20 dBm.  You could set the power to 27dBm via the CLI, but anytime you uodated anythig with the Gargoyle interface (or re-booted) the power went back to 20 dBm.  Gargoyle w/TX @20dBm=-47

 

Next, I decided to see if I could fix that nasty restriction of 20 dBm of the Gargoyle interface.  I found the controlling script (/www.basic.sh) and found the edit of the tx power input.  I changed the limits to 30 and retried the interface.  Now I can input 0 - 30 dBm using the Gargoyle interface.  One thing to note: if you put in a value greater than what the regulatory limits are (27 dBm in the current version of Gargoyle/Openwrt), the entry will not be written to the wireless config file and will default to 20 dBm regardless of the setting by the Gargoyle interface.  Gargoyle w/TX @27dBm=-45

 

Next, I decided to see if I could increase the TX maximum power to the max allowed by the FCC.  To do this, I modified the regulatory database (regulatory.bin) and set the limits to 30 dBm.  I rebooted and checked the limits reported in dmesg and sure enough, I now have things set at 30 dBm max.  Used the Gargoyle interface and set TX power to 30 dBm.  Gargoyle w/TX @30=-44

 

In summary here are the measured RSSI's:

wzr-hp-ag300h w/dd-wrt:            -50

wzr-hp-g300nh w/user friendly: -50

wzr-hp-g300nh w/dd-wrt             -51

wzr-hp-g300nh w/gargoyle @20dBm: -47

wzr-hp-g300nh w/gargoyle @27dBm: -45

wzr-hp-g300nh w/gargoyle @30dBm: -44

 

One other note:  The advertised max data rate was 300(N).

 

So... the ath9k drivers in Openwrt work great!  Tx power CAN be managed!

 

As an AP, Gargoyle is easy to set up and seems to have most of the features that would be needed.  So far it seems stable.

 

If you are wanting to use it in client mode, though it seems to have it's limitations although you can set it up vi the Openwrt UCI.  I have some more testing/exploring to do for client mode.

Storage / LinkStation admin login webserver issue
« Last post by Challa1 on September 22, 2020, 04:28:29 pm »
When I log into our LinkStation as the admin user, I am taken to the Local User page for the admin user on the Users/Groups tab.  The problem is, the Users/Groups tab is the ONLY tab available and I cannot leave the local users page.  All the other settings tabs for network, shares, backup, etc are missing.  I need to restore some files from backup, but cannot get to the backup page.  Has anyone ever seen this before? It appears the internal webserver on the unit is freaking out.

I have rebooted it, tried different browsers, different machines, accessing it through NAS Navigator, resetting the admin passowrd (the only thing I CAN do), and even tried to SSH into it (SSH is disabled).  I am at a loss here. I submitted a support request to Buffalo, but I thought I would ask here while I wait.

Thanks!

According to the e-mail I just got (I'm still at work), it just booted up. 6+ hours later.

Which nas do you have?
Is there an AUTO position on your power switch?

No switch on the back that I see, just the power button on the front. Uninstalled NAS Navigator, and 5 minutes later, it went offline. I could ping it. Attempting to open it in the browser gives a 404. Waited about 10 minutes (had to leave for work), and now an hour later it hasn't come back online - I'm pretty sure. No e-mail notification that it came online.
