I have recently purchased a Buffalo Airstation WBMR-HP-G300H router. Using the stock firmware I successfully connected to my UK Talk Talk ISP using the settings as per attached "Stock Firmware Settings.png". This proves the hardware, connections and settings are working. After checking the DD-WRT router database I downloaded "buffalo_to_dd-wrt_MULTI.enc" (V24 PreSP2 Beta Build 21061) and updated the firmware using the stock web interface. I also downloaded "wbmr_g300nh-webflash-firmware.bin" and flashed this to the router using the DD-WRT web interface. Both updates applied fine. I then configured the DD-WRT as per attached "DD-WRT Firmware Settings.png" file. The routers in built ADSL modem will not connect as illustrated by the attached "DD-WRT Firmware WAN Status.png" file. I have tried most combinations of WAN connections types, Annex Types but have still not been able to connect to my ISP.
Can anybody offer any advice on what steps I need to take to make a connection with this router to my ISP?
Could anyone also point me in the right direction as to how to reinstate the stock firmware for this model?
Thanks in advance for any help that might be able to offer.
Hi gadgetpig thanks four you help. I have tried both firmware versions you have suggested. Afraid I still cant connect. With all firmware I have tried I've noticed too the DSL light doesn't flash as though the unit isn't even trying to connect, (phone line definitely connected). The DD-WRT firmware doesn't have a G.DMT modulation option.
If you or any one else can offer any further suggestions I'd by happy to try them before I give up .
Incidentally where did you find links to the alternate firmware versions? The router database only has one firmware version listed.
Stupid question, but have you tried to unplug the power cord? My WBMR refuses ADSL connection after flashing and setting it up, if I don´t unplug the power cord and let it sit for a while. It has been like that since the first build to WBMR.
Incidentally, another member named "iodadi" has the same model as you,and appears the latest build is working ok for him. You might be able to PM him directly and ask what ADSL setting he uses. Is there a way to change DMT setting to auto or autodetect?
Hello again gadgetpig - thanks for the link to the beta's. Tried the latest build same results I'm afraid. I will try to PM iodadai for ADSL settings. There were no auto detect for DMT / Modulation in any of the builds, including the latest that I could see.
I'm using WBMR-HP-G300H with build 23919 and have the same problem. However, for me
1. I did 30/30/30 reset without connecting any cable accetp phone tine, LAN cableto my PC.
2. after that,it's working. you can config (click apply) and use it.
3. but if I reboot the router or press reset botton or reset from web GUI, it just cannot connect to ADSL. I have to do 30/30/30 again
have you try 30/30/30? _________________ Buffalo WBMR-HP-G300H

Hi winmx I have already tried this build with no success. It was suggested by gadgetpig early in the thread. Thanks all the same. I have posted a message to my ISP to check which settings should be used for the annex setting. Guidance I have read so far is to set this to either G.DMT or auto, neither options appear in any of the builds I have tried.
I will report back progress if and when I get a response.
Yes I have found TalkTalk use PPOA too but I haven't been able to get it to work. Strange too how the stock firmware worked with a PPoE setting.
I don't get a payload type option when PPOA is selected so I couldn't try suggestions 1 and 2. I did however try 3 and 4. While neither worked suggestion 3 did cause the ADSL light to flash around every 5 seconds for around 5 times, (not the same type of pattern I'd expect though). While I did briefly get hopeful - no connection was made. This only happened when Annex was set to A.DMT or B.DMT.
Thanks anyway for your help. I'm hoping the talk talk community forums will give me definitive settings, especially Annex type, that I can test with 30/30/30 resets fully. I have just carried out soft rests and cycled the power between most of the tests carried out so far. I'm back at work now and don't have a great deal of time to test.
