    I finally got DD-WRT installed on the Netgear WNDR3300 router.

    I did the 30-30-30 hard reset routine, used the Netgear GUI "Router
    Upgrade" menu item with "dd-wrt.v24_std-wndr3300.chk" that churned
    for about 90 seconds and and asked for a new user and password. Then
    another hard reset and it looks like it might work once configured.
    I will try it when I can shut this system down without disrupting

    There were some problems along the way but that's what it finally
    boiled down to.
