-**NOTE:** 
-Buffalo WZR-600DHP shares the same FCC ID FDI-09101889-0 with Buffalo WZR-HP-AG300H. This brings in a plausible hypothesis that in fact both models are identical except for their model numer.   
-For FCC documentation, see [[https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/ViewExhibitReport.cfm?mode=Exhibits&RequestTimeout=500&calledFromFrame=N&application_id=369568&fcc_id='FDI-09101889-0'|here]] 
-Indeed, WZR-600HDP is a replacement model for WZR-HP-AG300H, and their hardware look almost identical. However, the known procedure how to install OpenWRT for WZR-HP-AG300H does not work for WZR-600DHP. BuffaloTech is not responsive in assisting in regards to this matter. 
-===== Firmware ===== +===== Installation ===== 
-Buffalo provides two types of official firmwares: Pro version and Friendly version. Both are DD-WRT based, and downloadable from Buffalo tech's website. Don't let naming fool you; Friendly version is not friendly in fact.+Note: In OpenWRT versions prior to Barrier Breaker 14.07 there was no specific firmware for the WZR-600DHP but the same firmware as the [[toh/buffalo/wzr-hp-ag300h|Buffalo WZR-HP-AG300H]] could be utilized due to the similar hardware. In this case after installation OpenWRT will report the device as the WZR-HP-AG300H even though it is the WZR-600DHP. In addition the factory image could not be flashed to OpenWRT through the standard OEM web interface firmware flash process because the firmware image was not specifically designed for the WZR-600DHP. Instead you needed to install the sysupgrade version using the wget and mtd commands through the OEM interface Administration -> Commands interface.
-In USA, Buffalo WZR-600DHP is shipped with its Pro version. "DD-WRT v2SP2-MULTI (11/0/12) std" (Filename: wzr600dhp-pro-v24sp2-20180-download.zip). +Because this router is individually supported since the Barrier Breaker 14.07 release it is suggested that you install that version as it will be much easier to install.

 +==== Installing using the Factory version using the OEM web interface ====
 +Since the Barrier Breaker 14.07 version of OpenWRT it is possible to install OpenWRT through the OEM web interface using the standard flash upgrade method in the web interface.
 +  - Download the openwrt-ar71xx-generic-wzr-600dhp-squashfs-factory.bin file to your PC
 +  - Load the OEM web interface (192.168.11.1, admin/password) from a DHCP configured computer
 +  - Click the Administration -> Firmware Upgrade tab
 +  - Click the browse button and find the openwrt-ar71xx-generic-wzr-600dhp-squashfs-factory.bin file on your PC
 +  - Allow the firmware upgrade a few minutes to complete. The router will reboot at least once.
 +  - Check your PC to see if the DHCP address of the PC has switched to the OpenWrt address of 192.168.1.x
 +  - Once your PC has a 192.168.1.x address you can load the OpenWrt web interface at 192.168.1.1 and complete your configuration.
 +==== Installing using the SysUpgrade version using the OEM web interface ====
 +It is possible to easily install OpenWrt SysUpgrade versions using the OEM web interface (Buffalo branded DD-WRT) as long as you can connect the router to the Internet and do not use the firmware upgrade web utility. What you need to do is:
 +  - Load the OEM web interface (192.168.11.1, admin/password) from a DHCP configured computer
 +  - Click the Administration -> Commands tab
 +  - Enter the command "wget -P /tmp http://downloads.openwrt.org/attitude_adjustment/12.09/ar71xx/generic/openwrt-ar71xx-generic-wzr-hp-ag300h-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin" and press the "run commands" button. This will download OpenWrt to the /tmp directory.
 +  - Verify that the file downloaded by running the "ls -al /tmp" command. You should see the "openwrt-ar71xx-generic-wzr-hp-ag300h-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin" file listed in the directory contents.
 +  - Run the "mtd -r write /tmp/openwrt-ar71xx-generic-wzr-hp-ag300h-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin linux" command to flash the new firmware. This will take a couple minutes to write to flash and automatically reboot.
 +  - During the flashing process you will get some output to your web page including "Unlocking linux ... Writing from /tmp/openwrt-ar71xx-generic-wzr-hp-ag300h-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin to linux ..." you will also see a solid red //"DIAG"//-LED
 +  - Once the //"DIAG"//-LED begins flashing check your PC to see if the DHCP address of the PC has switched to the OpenWrt address of 192.168.1.x
 +  - Once your PC has a 192.168.1.x address you can load the OpenWrt web interface and complete your configuration, when you load the page the first time the //"DIAG"//-LED should stop flashing and go out.
 +==== Installation using the TFTP method ====
 +->  [[doc:howto:generic.flashing.tftp]]
 +=== Specific values you need ===
 +| Bootloader tftp server IPv4 address | 192.168.11.1 |
 +| Bootloader MAC address (special) | 02:aa:bb:cc:dd:20 |
 +| Latest firmware tftp image | See Firmware Download Quick Links (**''NOTE:''** Name must contain //"tftp"//) |
 +| TFTP Transfer Window | 4 seconds |
 +| TFTP Window Start | approximately 10-20 seconds after power on |
 +| TFTP Client Required IP Address | 192.168.11.2 |
 +=== Flashing Notes ===
 +  * Connect ethernet to one of the router's LAN ports
 +  * Configure tftp'ing host's ip address, e.g.: $ sudo ip addr add 192.168.11.2/24 dev eth0
 +  * Pre-populate arp table on tftp'ing host, e.g.: $ sudo arp -s 192.168.11.1 02:aa:bb:cc:dd:20
 +  * The red //"DIAG"//-LED begins to flash rapidly when the router has received the image and is currently booting the new firmware.
 +  * Successful flashes via tftp using Windows 7 directly plugged into the router have been done.  It helps to add arp entries and disable media sensing as per the generic tftp instructions.
 +  * Flash should have reset all settings as well.  The IP address of the router should be 192.168.1.1 now since 192.168.11.1 is only for the bootloader at boot-time
 +  * If your router has two red flashes of the DIAG LED followed by no flash and repeats then the flash failed or the image given is corrupt.  You can still recover with tftp.  Start over and try again.
 +==== Installation using the remote shell method ====
 +It is possible to flash the SysUpgrade version from the command line of a running DD-WRT, using the mtd command:
 +  - Shell into the command line, cd /tmp;
 +  - Copy the image file to /tmp by whatever means is handy (e.g. wget, scp)
 +  - mtd -r write openwrt-ar71xx-generic-wzr-600dhp-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin linux
 +  - wait;
 +  - be happy.
 +Note from the boot messages that the linux partition starts at offset 0x60000 from the beginning of flash.  It would probably be wise to confirm that before proceeding.
 +==== Japanese version ====
-==== Flash Layout ====+[[http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=727242&sid=d725e7fba4c94483220cddf61c8a1fff#727242|Source]] 
 + 
 +On the Japanese version of Buffalo WZR-600DHP, you have first to change a setting on a hidden maintenance page. 
 + 
 +  - Load the hidden maintenance page: http://192.168.11.1/cgi-bin/cgi?req=frm&frm=py-db/55debug.html, username is **bufpy**, password is **otdpopy + <your admin password>** (example: **otdpopypassword**). If you get a message "under construction", clear your browser cache (or open in private navigation) and retry. 
 +  - Run commands from text field: 
 +    - ubootenv set accept_open_rt_fmt 1 
 +    - reboot 
 +  - **''NOTE:''** you can also start tftp server if needed. 
 +  - Now clear your browser cache again, and open default web interface (192.168.11.1), but this time using the credentials provided above (**bufpy**). 
 +  - Go to Settings page (管理設定, //kanri settei// in Japanese), and you will see a few new links, including one that will allow you to flash firware from any file you upload. 
 + 
 +I didn't know which OpenWrt firmware file to use, but the original user who brought this procedure successfully flashed an DD-WRT firmware, so I did the same first. 
 + 
 +From there, I was able to flash OpenWrt, following [[#installation.using.the.oem.web.interface|Installation using the OEM web interface]] above.
