Router: Netgear WNDR-3700V4
Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r28976
CPU Model: Atheros AR9344 ver 1 rev 1.2 (0x2122)
upgrade from:28882
Status: not working
Reset: none

Power light just flashes. Never seems to boot. Unable to get in touch with router. I have never done the tftp? thing before. Will have to do some reading.


i already warned of that above..

anyway see http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Netgear_WNDR3700


Netgear WNDR4300
Status: brick
Reset: no
Errors: flashing power light

I tried last night (shouldn't do an upgrade just before bed---makes me stupid...) & spent 2 hrs fiddling with tftp to get my timing right to revert back 28942...Guess I'll wait for the next one....

Note to self---Hmmmm, pays to READ the post before trying an upgrade Sad

Router: TrendNet TEW-812DRU V2
Status: barely usable
Reset: Yes (I'm assuming this means the router reboots? Yes)
Errors: Stuck in reboot cycle.

I'm not even sure if I was supposed to test this release on my router, but I was hoping to get onto a more up-to-date version.

The router would constantly reboot with this release of DD-WRT, and the interface would only be accessible for a quick few seconds each time it rebooted. Luckily, I was somehow able to get it to reflash to my original version.

Can I upgrade my Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH with the latest firmware?

My router is listed in the ftp download page though under

Index of /betas/2016/01-27-2016-r28976/buffalo_wzr-hp-g300nh/

Please advise.

You can do it via TFTP. It still bricks the router if you try via web interface. I tried upgrading from 28444 to this version.

Any tip on how to upgrade via tftp? There seems to be more than one way to do it, but which way worked with you?

I am currently on DD-WRT v24-sp2 (03/29/14) - build 23838

This is how I do it on my Mac. If anyone has a better workflow please share:
Step 1:
Configure your computer to static IP
IP: 192.168.11.5
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.11.1

Step 2:
With the router on, enter the following command on Terminal
sudo arp -s 192.168.11.1 xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx (where xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx is your router's MAC address)

Step 3:
Turn the router off, enter the following command on Terminal
tftp 192.168.11.1

on tftp mode write:
mode binary
put buffalo_to_ddwrt_webflash-MULTI.bin (don't press enter)
** you may need to write the full path to the firmware file if the shell wasn't on the firmware file directory

Step 4:
Turn router on. In a few seconds the router will accept tftp connections but you won't know exactly when. So right after I turn the router on I keep repeating the put command until it doesn't give me an error message (up arrow then enter)

Step 5:
If it succeeds it will say it transferred a file in X seconds. After that you'll need to wait for your router to do the upgrading job. It will flash the red led in front for a few minutes. Once it's done the router will boot normally. So you reconfigure your computer's network for DHCP and access the router at 192.168.1.1

I hope this helps. You can always refer to the wiki in case you find yourself in trouble:

Ok I need some clarifications, which file should I use for flashing, I am already on dd-wrt...

buffalo_to_ddwrt_webflash-MULTI.bin
or
wzr-hp-g300nh-dd-wrt-webupgrade-MULTI.bin

and in which directory should I place the .bin file?

However, for the sake of trying, I used wzr-hp-g300nh-dd-wrt-webupgrade-MULTI.bin and placed it under Users under my account...

I am getting "File Transfer timed out"

buffalo_to_ddwrt_webflash-MULTI.bin always with TFTP. Doesn't matter where the firmware file is as long as you point put to the full path of the firmware file.
