Did a fresh install on another Netgear R8000 yesterday and found two problems.

1. Was unable to break out of the Netgear firmware with build R31923 - incompatible firmware type error. Used current ...

I assume you are looking at Kong's site http://desipro.de/ddwrt/K3-AC-Arm/

The .chk file is the one used to break from the Netgear firmware and get dd-wrt onto the router. The .bin file is the stan ...

I'm thinking of upgrading my X8 to X10? confused if I should do that or should I go towards a linksys?

Could someone link me to the build that worked for @labo, I had the same problem as he did and I'd like to give it a try on my unit.

There was a test build that was on Kong's download site - think ...

I came here to check if I should update to the latest firmware of kong or should I leave it the way it is.

The wifi bands are associated correctly without auto and the astril applet works well.

For info, I tried the latest BS builds and it seems that 30949 is the last one to work properly on the China / MP1 variant. Builds 31533, 31544, 31571 all say "Image too big for partition : Linux ...

I tried to update my working Netgear R8500 (China build, MP1 variant), from BS build 30949 to the current builds (31533, 31544 and 31571), but they don't apply and the router reboots into the 30949 im ...

To solve a particular problem, I need to run the -m hashlimit module in iptables, however this is not part of the base build for either the BS or the Kong build. Other related optional modules for ipt ...

Nice work all.

@malachi, As you have a hardware issue (missing wireless device on stock firmware), I'm not surprised that the new build has had no effect. dd-wrt is good, but even it can't fix brok ...

Yes, mine looks pretty much the same...

Looks like your inbox is full or you are not reading your pms, since you have serial, you can try the new 8500 build in test folder, it most likely works.
