The WZR-1750DHP model has at least two hardware revisions:
|Model||Version||Current Release||Firmware OpenWrt Install||Firmware OpenWrt Upgrade||Firmware OEM Stock|
Please add the installation procedure here.
Reverting from OpenWrt to the
wzr1750dhpd-v24sp2-23709c.bin vendor image is safe and easy to do through the LUCI web interface
J14 is the CFE console and Linux console at
ttyS0. It ships with a four-pin header installed and is compatible with PL2303 adapters.
The J14 pinout from the key pin (a white triangle) is:
The positive pin does not require power, but it can keep the SoC running, and it must be disconnected to completely reset the hardware.
As of OpenWrt 15.05 (Chaos Calmer):
As of OpenWrt r47881 (Designated Driver):
The USB error in the dmesg is:
hub 1-0:1.0: USB hub found hub 1-0:1.0: config failed, hub doesn't have any ports! (err -19)
As of LEDE 17.01:

This build does not have a USB driver and can be rescued only through TFTP.
Uploading the openwrt .trx as a firmware upgrade using Buffalo's stock web interface is rejected as invalid firmware. Note that with stock firmware revisions v2.27 (and probably higher), uploads of non-Buffalo firmware and firmware older than v2.27 are blocked by the web interface. If you have a unit shipped with such a firmware, you can manually override this check as documented at https://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=783040 and summarized here:
One option is to first go through DD-WRT as described nicely at http://kdpeter.blogspot.co.at/2015/03/buffalo-wzr-1750dhp-openwrt.html?m=1 and summarized here (note that the first 2 steps will already by done if you followed the above steps to downgrade from v2.27):
The second option is to go directly through TFTP with uboot. Buffalo routers typically default to address 192.168.11.1, and the WZR-1750DHP uses the same in uboot. Timing is difficult to get right, one option is to start the following on the command line (assuming a Linux host) immediately after plugging in the router (connected to a LAN port):
sudo ip a a 192.168.11.7/24 dev <your ethernet interface>; atftp 192.168.11.1 --verbose -p -l openwrt-bcm53xx-buffalo-wzr-1750dhp-squashfs.trx
* Note: I have not yet managed to make this work on a new WZR-1750DHP running Buffalo firmware v2.27! It seems that this firmware will (currently) no longer support flashing anything non-Buffalo. *

flash -noheadercommand to the nflash1.trx device.
The console transcript on the WZR-1750DHP should look like this:

Double-check that the nflash1.trx argument is entered exactly correct here and then start the TFTP client…
