Buffalo, the american bison

Buffalo and DD-WRT collaborate
Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH
Buffalo WHR-HP-G300N
Basic Features
  • Wireless N
  • 4 x 100mb/s ports
  • AOSS
  • DHCP
  • Cable Router
  • Atheros AR7240 rev 1.2 CPU (400MHz)
  • 32MB Memory

Since the second half of 2010 the WHR-HP-G300N ships with a Buffalo supplied DD-WRT firmware installed by default. Older versions of the router are the same specifications and allow the DD-WRT firmware to be installed from the buffalo website/FTP server.
Buffalo refer to the DD-WRT firmware as the "Pro" firmware and the original firmware as the "User Friendly" firmware. Not to be confused but the "Pro" DD-WRT firmware is much more pleasing on the eye than the "User Friendly" firmware if not easier to use!

Initial Installation

Buffalo now provide an official DD-WRT build direct from their own FTP site.
Acoring to Buffalo documentation the new DD-WRT firmware is installed by default on the WHR-HP-G300N however mine had the original firmware
The DD-WRT firmware is named as the "Pro" firmware and is installed by default. A "User Friendly" firmware is included as optional.
To download the firmware grab the zip file from ftp://whr-hp-g300n:whr-hp-g300n@
Extract the firmware from the zip and use the web based firmware upgrade interface as usual to upgrade to the "Pro" DD-WRT firmware from the stock "User Friendly" firmware
