Buffalo WSR-1166DHP

  1. Enable SSH from the DD-WRT NXT web interface (Network services → SSH)
  2. SSH into the router with TeraTerm or Putty
  3. Run the following shell commands:
    cd /tmp/
    wget https://downloads.openwrt.org/releases/18.06.0/targets/ramips/mt7621/openwrt-18.06.0-ramips-mt7621-wsr-1166-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin
    sysupgrade -v -n -F openwrt-18.06.0-ramips-mt7621-wsr-1166-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin
  4. Wait for the router to reboot. It will take 5+ minutes to complete.

OpenWrt provides firmware images only for the original WSR-1166DHP. This firmware might also work on the WSR-1166DHP2, but it definitely will not work on the WSR-1166DHP3 or WSR-1166DHP4 because those models have the RTL8197F SoC instead of the MT7621A SoC.
