But parameters, (all, including name+password), are saved, only until power is cut. Then it's back to defaults...
So, I tried the 30/30/30, many times, innovating with new ways... tried also the telnet + erase nvram (+ 30" reset)... tried both Micro & Std...
Unfortunately parameters are never saved for good
Now, trying a previous version (also beta...)...
Edit => same problem. Parameters not saved.
Hey, yeah I made the same experience on WLA2. I switched then to openwrt and didn't have this issue, but it wasn't the most stable build (mind you I used 8.x then, current is 12.x). Currently WLA2 is lying half-bricked somewhere, so I can't verify this but perhaps using newer version of ddwrt would have the issue with retaining the config fixed. Hope it helps and keep us informed on which version/build you stabilized.
After trying a number of dd-wrt versions, old or new, all had the same bug and I ended up switching off the router.
Being myself a C/C++ dev, had also a look at the code, as it seems the bug lies into where the code writes data (typically RAM and not flash) ; or it could be "simply" that after a cold boot, the device does not read the same area and concludes data is corrupted and re-inits. But would be a really hard task to debug the tremendously large code! (not mentioning the difficulty to test it...).
Also, would need the router's technical reference (what address starts Flash, how to write to it etc...). This doesn't seem to be on Buff's everyone's site..
Checked the openwrt site, and cannot find a version that suits the Buffalo WLA2-G54C...
Could you kindly give a hint on this one?
The G54C being pretty low in flash/memory (4M/4M).
Installing an openwrt fw that fixes the router would be great.
