you are right , 1.71 is the max on the indexed sites:http://www.buffalo-technology.com/en/pr ... trade-pro/
but I had logged a call with buffalo about another issue(6 flashing red lights on start up), that time support had send me a dnld link , and I think I had got the 1.73 from there (if I am correct)
if you want I can try and log in to that page again( requires the biffalo call # + serial number of the machine). the machine has gone back and I recd my money , so it would be a lil difficult to get the serial number I guess.
this logger : [21:39:47] JS error:  Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property '262' of null ( I am assuming, this is the key to all the issue...I have asked buffalo support too on this)
will update once I get any response.
you mentioned <try only this flag to flash the old FW>
if I do this , I am afraid I may get into a EMI situation (emergency mode)
I had this about 7 -8 months back , then I had to upgarde to 1.71 to resolve it.
so if I go back in time, I shudder that I may get myself into the emi mode again..?
unless, are we sure that ,that wont happen ?
