 +====== Buffalo BroadStation BHR-4RV ======
 +Buffalo BroadStation BHR-4RV router w/ 4-port AUTO-MDIX switch, the board is identical to WZR-RS-G54, only without the WiFi.
 +
 +
 +===== Hardware Highlights =====
 +^ CPU ^ Ram ^ Flash ^ Network ^ USB ^ Serial ^ JTag ^
 +| BroadCom BCM4704KPBG | 8MiB | 32MiB | 4 x 1| No | Yes | ? |
 +
 +
 +===== Installation =====
 +  - -> [[doc:howto:obtain.firmware]]
 +  - -> [[doc:howto:generic.flashing|Install OpenWrt]]
 +
 +==== Flash Layout ====
 +Please check out the article [[doc:techref:Flash Layout]]. It contains an example and a couple of explanations.
 +
 +==== OEM easy installation ====
 +
 +This section deals with how you install OpenWrt from a device freshly opened.  Plus the steps required such as reset to factory defaults if the device has already been configured
 +
 +**Note:** Reset router to factory defaults if it has been previously configured.
 +  *Browse to http://192.168.1.1/Upgrade.asp
 +  *Upload .bin file to router
 +  *Wait for it to reboot
 +  *Telnet to 192.168.1.1 and set a root password, or browse to http://192.168.1.1 if LuCI is installed.
 +
 +==== OEM installation using the TFTP method ====
 +
 +If you want to upgrade using TFTP you follow these steps (as an alternative to the above install process.
 +
 +==== Upgrading OpenWrt ====
 +->  [[doc:howto:generic.sysupgrade]]
 +
 +If you have already installed OpenWrt and like to reflash for e.g. upgrading to a new OpenWrt version you can upgrade using the mtd command line tool. It is important that you put the firmware image into the ramdisk (/tmp) before you start flashing.
 +
 +=== LuCI Web Upgrade Process ===
 +
 +  * Browse to http://192.168.1.1/cgi-bin/luci/mini/system/upgrade/ LuCI Upgrade URL
 +  * Upload image file for sysupgrade to LuCI
 +  * Wait for reboot
 +
 +=== Terminal Upgrade Process ===
 +
 +  * Login as root via SSH on 192.168.1.1
 +  * Use the following commands to upgrade.
 +
 +<code>
 +cd /tmp/
 +wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/XXX/xxx.abc
 +sysupgrade /tmp/xxx.abc
 +</code>
 +
 +  *If sysupgrade does not support this router, use the following commands.
 +
 +<code>
 +cd /tmp/
 +wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/XXX/xxx.abc
 +mtd write /tmp/xxx.abc linux && reboot</code>
 +
 +===== Basic configuration =====
 +-> [[doc:howto:basic.config|Basic configuration]] After flashing, proceed with this.\\
 +Set up your Internet connection, configure wireless, configure USB port, etc.
 +
 +
 +===== Specific Configuration =====
 +==== Interfaces ====
 +
 +The default network configuration is:
 +^ Interface Name ^ Description ^ Default configuration ^
 +| br-lan | LAN & WiFi | 192.168.1.1/24 |
 +| vlan0 (eth0.0) | LAN ports (1 to 4) | None |
 +| vlan1 (eth0.1) | WAN port | DHCP |
 +| wl0 | WiFi | Disabled |
 +
 +==== Switch Ports (for VLANs) ====
 +Numbers 0-3 are Ports 1-4 as labeled on the unit, number 4 is the Internet (WAN) on the unit, 5 is the internal connection to the router itself. Don't be fooled: Port 1 on the unit is number 3 when configuring VLANs. vlan0 = eth0.0, vlan1 = eth0.1 and so on.
 +^ Port ^ Switch port ^
 +| Internet (WAN) | 4 |
 +| LAN 1 | 3 |
 +| LAN 2 | 2 |
 +| LAN 3 | 1 |
 +| LAN 4 | 0 |
 +
 +==== Failsafe mode ====
 +-> [[doc:howto:generic.failsafe]]
 +
 +==== Buttons ====
 +-> [[doc:howto:hardware.button]] on howto use and configure the hardware button(s).
 +
 +The Linksys WRT54GL has two buttons. They are Reset and Secure Easy Setup. Here, we merely name the buttons, so we can use them in the above Howto:
 +^ BUTTON ^ Event ^
 +| Reset | reset |
 +| Secure Easy Setup | ses |
