Did not come with dd-wrt, had to install it by myself.
on July 9, 2016
My unit did not come with dd-wrt. Either Amazon or Buffalo messed up and flashed/sent me the wrong unit. I contacted Buffalo support and they said that they do not provide support for installing third-party firmware. The dd-wrt firmware provided on the website was rejected by the webui update tool. After like 30 minutes of digging around I figured it out:
Here's how to install dd-wrt on this thing.
1. Download dd-wrt by googling "WHR-300HP2D firmware help" which should bring you to a dd-wrt forum post by "Panduh909." Later in the thread there is a link posted which you bring you to the download link for the firmware. Download the firmware-us.bin file.
2. Connect to your router, use ipconfig and copy the gateway address into your browser. (Mine was 192.168.1.1)
3. Go to the admin tab, upgrade, and "Upload file from computer." Select the downloaded firmware and click upload.
It'll take a few moments, but then the router should be running dd-wrt!
