    • Edit zrouter/boards/Buffalo/WZR-HP-AG300H/board.mk
      Specify board flash size
      BOARD_FLASH_SIZE=32M
      

      Specify board memory
      # Board have 128M of RAM
      KERNCONF_OPTIONS+=    AR71XX_REALMEM=128*1024*1024
      

      Set maximum firmware size
      # Image must not be biggest than GEOM_MAP_P2 (upgrade part.)
      FIRMWARE_IMAGE_SIZE_MAX=0x00760000
      
  • Build
    • make TARGET_PAIR=Buffalo/WZR-HP-AG300H. This will produce Buffalo_WZR-HP-AG300H.zimage under $OBJ_DIR/...
    • Prepare TFTP image. I have used buffaulo-tftp utility from OpenWRT (in future should be included into build)
      (echo -n "# Airstation FirmWareNrun u_fwNresetNN" | tr "N" "\012" | dd bs=512 count=1 conv=sync; dd if=Buffalo_WZR-HP-AG300H.zimage) > tftp.tmp
      buffalo-tftp -i tftp.tmp -o Buffalo_WZR-HP-AG300H-tftp.bin
      

      Resulting Buffalo_WZR-HP-AG300H-tftp.bin can be flashed via tftp. (I believe Buffalo_WZR-HP-AG300H.zimage can be flashed via OpenWRT upgrade utility, but I never tried)

What doesn't work

  1. Wireless - any attempts to enable WiFi doesn't change anything, enable, visible, save configuration, restart - nothing changes
  2. UI Basic Settings/Internet for DHCP always shows 10.0.0.10/24. While UI Status/Device Information shows correct leased IP address
  3. NAT doesn't work - the computer behind the device can't reach internet, most likely due to 'KLD ng_ipfw.ko: depends on ipfw - not available or version mismatch'
