I have an old WZR-HP-G300NH, and I thought I ordered another one, it said WZR-HP-G300NH on the package, but when I opened it up and looked at the unit the back read Model No: CB-GK10B. It looks physically the same but I'm wondering if it's actually safe to install OpenWRT on it given the strange model number labeling on the box. It's brand new, I want to use it, but I don't really care to brick it.

Used latest stable (Attitude Adjustment Release 12.09) with the migrate directions listed for the WZR-HP-G300NH, worked great. I enabled telnet on DD-WRT though and used a local HTTP server to get the disk image. I did not have it plugged into the internet at the time.

I would NOT use backfire to be safe.

Which firmware did you use? There's a whole bunch of'm in there...downloads.openwrt.org/attitude_adjustment/12.09/ar71xx/generic I'm planning on flashing it from dd-wrt after downloading the file on windows and connecting with WinSCP. –  leeand00 Jun 27 '13 at 0:06
