13977 does not support transmission or samba, for now. [just read the dd-wrt forums]

so you risk to brick the router and you haven't the same feature.

 

the alternative is openwrt that looks that everything is working already.

 

but i think i'm gonna pass for now :)

Official dd-wrt support by Buffalo for wzr-hp-g300nh is coming in July. Really makes me happy.

download the 13977 versione from the site. upload it as a normal official release, wait 6 minutes and you're done. easy as hell.

 

i don't suggest you to do it, anyway. you will lost nas and torrent functionality, and it looks like it as some speed problem [you can't get over 130mbit lan].

 

it's pretty stable, works fine by the way...

 

and remember: you can't go back. a lot of people bricked their router trying to go back to the official.

 

the solution is wait the new official firmware or a fully working dd-wrt one.

Currently, converting to DD-WRT will void your warranty as this is a non-Buffalotech firmware.

Will those owners who purchased the WZR HP G300NH before June/July be able to update to the DD-WRT and stay within warranty after it becomes available from Buffalo on this device?

Buffalo Technology (upper management, not me) is working on the answer to that very question, as the new FW will be the result of the joint venture between DD-WRT and Buffalo Technology.

I for one vote yes I just purchased this router from Newegg just before this was announced. Do you know if Buffalo is changing anything hardware wise in the WZR-HP G300NH DD-WRT release of the Product line? If not we as early adopters of these devices should be able to upgrade as long as we follow detail info on doing so released from Buffalo itself.

I know our votes don't count. But never hurts to ask.

Of cause you can: see  http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=410298#410298 - note that you must be registered there to see the file. I installed the current (13977) ddwrt build from the official fw web interface, played with it and flushed back (again in the web intf) with the official fw. The image provided there is 1.65 so you'll have to upgrade it to 1.72 if you want the newer version.

BigDawg - the hardware should remain the same as long as it has  the same part number and hardware revision.

Before you buy you may want find out if this is true from the guys here at Buffalo. This is a quote from lolcatz over at DD-WRT forums .........."I was told by the representative that the upcoming DD-WRT firmware support includes a hardware revision by buffalo, and that current routers are not guaranteed to work with DD-WRT, and that actually you lose your factory warranty if you try to upgrade your router with any DD-WRT firmware. " Can any of the guys with Buffalo confirm this? If it is..... those that definitly want DD-WRT, may want to wait for the July release of this router.

EDIT: In order to stop this rumor, I just want to be sure everyone reads the next post by   Thanks for the definitive answer on this.
