Netgear WNDR3300 v1

This device is NOT RECOMMENDED for future use with OpenWrt due to low flash/ram.
DO NOT BUY DEVICES WITH 4MB FLASH / 32MB RAM if you intend to flash an up-to-date and secure OpenWrt version (18.06 or later) onto it! See 4/32 warning for details.

1) This device does not have sufficient resources (flash and/or RAM) to provide secure and reliable operation.
This means that even setting a password or changing simple network settings might not be possible any more, rendering the device effectively useless. See OpenWrt on 4/32 devices what you can do now.

2) OpenWrt support for this device will end after 2019.
19.07 will be the last official build for 4/32 devices. After 19.07, no further OpenWrt images will be built for 4/32 devices. See OpenWrt on 4/32 devices what you can do now.

Confirmed to work with at least Kamikize 7.09 (2012 Oct 04)

The process I followed:

1. Upload this DD-WRT mini through the regular WNDR3300 web UI.

http://www.dd-wrt.com/routerdb/de/download/Netgear/WNDR3300/-/dd-wrt.v24_std-wndr3300.chk/2193

2. WNDR3300 will reboot into DD-WRT and be set to default 192.168.1.1.

3. Browse to http://192.168.1.1, set credentials, then browse to the administration tab and upload an OpenWrt firmware. I used this 7.09 WRT150N firmware:

http://downloads.openwrt.org/kamikaze/7.09/brcm-2.4/openwrt-wrt150n-2.4-squashfs.bin

4. WNDR3300 will reboot into default OpenWrt.

5. Like the Linksys WRT150N, you will need to “ipkg install kmod-brcm-wl-mimo” and “wifi detect > /etc/config/wireless” to get basic WiFi working. To the best of my knowledge this supports only 2.4GHz – 5GHz is not working but that could be my own limited understanding.

May work with other builds but this was my successful starting point.
