Hello,

I have recently found a Buffalo WHR-G300N for sale for a rather low price, although I'm aware of the current issue with the fact of version 2 of the router not being supported. My main question is, is there a chance that this will be supported in the near future, as from the router specification I can see that it has 8mb of Flash and 32mb of RAM which assumingly won't make it impossible to port to.

Any advice would be appreciated

Where do you see that it has 8Mb flash?
You are either wrong on the flash size or on the router model.

It is showing in the router database as having 8mb of Flash, although when checking the wiki it says that only 4mb is available.

maybe whr-g300n v2 can support dd-wrt...
whr-hp-g300n have same Atheros 7240 chipset with whr-g300n v2 and hp have 8mb flash and g300nv2 have too, hp have 32mb ram and g300nv2 have too... but maybe I'm wrong...
http://svn.dd-wrt.com:8000/dd-wrt/changeset/13744
^what u think about that? if u edit whr-hp-g300n firmware with this svn can it work with whr-g300n v2?
can someone accept this?
or am I wrong?

brainslayer uploaded a whr-g300n v2 compatible firmware a couple days ago and it works fine for me.

If anyone has noticed the router has now increased to £60 on ebuyer although I have been able to find it on dabs for £25

Be warned though today (Sunday 30th May) is the last day it will be at this price.

Thanks for the screenshot, although you're slightly late with the message as I have already purchased one Smile

Was it just a simple flash from the WebGUI with the file or did you have to use TFTP?

I flashed "webflash" file and it works fine...
I reset g300nv2 to factorydefaults
then I flashed "webflash" image via webmanagement and wait
and finish
then go 192.168.1.1
Thank you brainslayer.

I would very much appreciate to get pm's with the boot loader of WHR-G300Nv2 attached.

Everyone ought to do backup of their boot loader and save it in case they later on brick their router during experimenting or updating.

It is a weekly occurrence here in the forum to see users requesting a copy of the boot loader for their router, users who has bricked their routers but didn't take a copy when the router was working.

You can retrieve a copy of your boot loader by pointing your browser to 192.168.1.1/backup/cfe.bin
This only works if you have dd-wrt firmware on the router.

In case anyone else is interested my router arrived to day which I swiftly installed the DD-WRT build previously recommended. It was extremely easy and I'm now very satisfied with my new router Smile
