Dear all,
I tried to search in the forum (and in the router database) but there is absolutely no mention of the Netgear WNDR4300.

It is claimed to be the successor of the WNDR4000 and, according to its OpenWRT specs, it seems to be quite powerful:

- Atheros AR9344 based chipset
- 128mb NAND flash
- 128mb RAM

and all sort of things that common routers have (wireless N, 5ghz band, usb port).

Does somebody know if there is some work going on by the DD-wrt folks about this router?

Thank you!

With this unit having NAND flash, it is doubtful that the devs are porting for this unit currently - they'd need a unit on their desk, should you be willing to donate one of these units to the dd-wrt devs, i'm fairly sure it'll speed up the porting process for dd-wrt.

porting of WNDR4300 is done now. i will upload it in some minutes here. since WNDR4300 is identical to the WNDR3700v4 except for a different 5 ghz wireless card, just the WNDR3700v4 was required which i got 2 days ago

and here is it. flash it with netgears web interface or tftp recovery. since you can recovery the device with tftp at any time (if the image is broken, tftp turns on automaticly, or simply use the reset button at power on for turning on recovery) its safe todo any experiment with it. you can debrick it without any serial at any time.

MOD Edit: You must be logged onto the forum first to see the attached files. So log into the forum first, then access this thread for the test build.

Hi BrainSlayer!

Where can I get the latest firmware to work with Netgear WNDR4300?
I went on this link but could not find a WNDR4300 folder...

ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/others/eko/BrainSlayer-V24-preSP2/2013/02-11-2013-r20675/

Thanks

Thanks Malachi !!!
I could successfully install the DD-WRT firmware from BrainSlayer.

A question about setting up VPN connection to a VPN Provider like HMA or GoldenFrog.
Which tab of the interface do you use because I see VPN in 2 different tabs:
- 1st in Setup > Basic setup > WAN Connection Type
- 2nd: Services > VPN > PPTP Client
What is the difference?
Which one to use?

Thanks

Please, JFBO. Can you report how your router/network works after a couple of days of testing? I'm honestly interested in purchasing this device but I would like to know something more about it. If you can provide some information, it would be awesome!

simply use the wan page. the other pptp client is for manual special configurations. it was made a long time ago and is still there for historical reasons. so simply use the wan pptp options and all should be fine

small update: solves cpu load problem


use the .bin file for direct dd-wrt upgrade. the img file is for dlink factory to dd-wrt upgrades (or tftp recovery)

Looks good!
Flashed and everything I use is working great.
Will report back if I encounter any problems.

Hi, which of the files above should I use? Sorry, I'm not clear on the difference between a direct dd-wrt upgrade and a dlink factory to dd-wrt upgrade? I'm very new at this.

Thank you!
