Buffalo WZR-450HP2

Bufflo WZR-450HP2D has the same hardware and is working and stable using this device firmware image. To flash just do a firmware upgrade from the stock firmware (Buffalo branded dd-wrt) with squashfs-factory.bin

  1. Build an image using the instruction here Build system usage with the following configuration:
    • Target AR71XX
    • Subtarget generic
    • Profile WZR-450HP2
    • Images ramdisk --→ gzip (will not work unless GZIP is selected, unselect squashfs not needed)
    • LUCI (luci is necessary to be able to connect to router from the browser)
  2. After it is build find and rename openwrt-ar71xx-generic-wzr-450hp2-initramfs-uImage.bin (must be the initramfs or u didn t do the previous step correctly) to wgr450hp-ddwrt-uImage-initramfs-gzip.bin and copy it to a new folder
  3. Download an tftp SERVER (example tftpd32) and make sure it can connect to the internet (firewall etc.)
  4. Set your pc ip to and gateway to (i got this info from wireshark by listening to ethernet and searching for arp and the file name also from wireshark by listening to ethernet and searching for tftp)
  5. open tftp server and set it to ip and to the folder containing wgr450hp-ddwrt-uImage-initramfs-gzip.bin
