I cannot flash the router after flashing to build 24500. The router is functioning fine, it just refuses to update and reports back the flash has failed. I have tried to tftp flash from 2 different pc's and also my MacBook pro. Still no love. Any suggestions? Thanks


Which fw are you trying to flash?


I was trying to flash to 27410. Finally got a good flash through the web interface after doing several hard resets. Not sure what the problem was but I'm glad I finally got it sorted out. Thanks for the quick reply.

last but not least, i cant stress enough the value of using the command line firmware upgrade tool ddup.

telnet in as root & run ddup from the command line.
I use it with the argument to pull it directly from kongs server.

Love the tool.

ddup --help
will show command line options.

Hello I can not get r7000 router to update. I am running Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r28444 std (12/05/15)

I tried older versions of ddwrt and older stock netgear they all fail.
Any Ideas?
I tried to install

dd-wrt.K3_R7000.chk
dd-wrt.v24-K3_AC_ARM_STD.bin.sig

root@DD-WRT:~# nvram show | grep DD_BOARD
size: 35357 bytes (30179 left)
DD_BOARD=Netgear R7000
root@DD-WRT:~# cat /dev/mtd4ro | grep NET
U12H270T00_NETGEAR
NETGEAR96
NETGEAR96-5G

root@DD-WRT:~# ddup --help
-sh: ddup: not found

this worked, I found a post from "brimmy"

telnet into your router
command = erase nvram
command = reboot
wait until router is booted telnet again into the router
command = wget ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas/2017/12-29-2017-r34311/netgear-r7000/netgear-r7000-webflash.bin
command = write netgear-r7000-webflash.bin linux
wait for the flash to be completed you will see done, then
comand = reboot
telnet once more into the router to check that the firmware was placed.
