 +=====Install via DD-WRT Interface=====
 +
 +My device a WHR-HP-G300N-EU Would *not* work via TFTP, AFTP, CURL or anything and was reluctant to get the soldering iron to a new device.
 +
 +Download the firmware ​
 +[[http://​downloads.openwrt.org/​barrier_breaker/​14.07/​ar71xx/​generic/​openwrt-ar71xx-generic-whr-hp-g300n-squashfs-factory.bin
 +]]
 +
 +With a web browser navigate to 192.168.11.1,​ select the Administration tab, Firmware tab, choose the file and click "​Upgrade" ​
 +
 +Voila
 +
 +**Note (Feb 2015)**
  
 +- install of dd-wrt-buffalo-to-ddwrt via tftp or from buffalo interface works. Then, however, dd-wrt didn't accept (anymore?) any of the Barrier Breaker 14.07 versions (''​openwrt-ar71xx-generic-whr-hp-g300n-*''​).
  
 +- so after reinstalling the buffalo factory fw via tftp (actually, Japanese version, as it doesn'​t accept the US version and was purchased in Japan) and then could, from the interface, upgrade to ''​openwrt-ar71xx-generic-whr-hp-g300n-squashfs-factory.bin''​ (nothing happens during the upgrade [WAN lamp fixed] so waited 5 mn ... then removed the cable ... Actually was OK. However, just in case, did, from OpenWrt interface, an upgrade to the ''​sysupgrade''​ bin to have something clean for sure).
 +Works very well!
