The guide specifically mentions not to use a build before 36995.
In the guide itself also is a section about recovery.
I bought this router months ago, and flashed what I thought was the latest stable build (36104) at that time. When things went sideways, I shelved it.
I tried doing a recovery with nmrpflash, but could not make it work. The IP of the router isn't in the list of ports. Although I can ping it and access the UI from 192.168.1.1, nmrpflash doesn't see it. It shows all zeroes for net0 when I run nmrpflash -L

I succesfully flashed my R6400v2 (boardid ) from stock Firmware Version V188.8.131.52_10.0.57 to BS dd-wrt v3.0-r41328.
By using EGC's Netgear_R6400v2_(R6700v3)_Guide_v1.08.doc ( see first post in this topic) it was a piece of cake.
It was also no problem to downgrade the stock firmware.
Warning! The firmware version you are trying to upload is older than the one you had.
Do you still want to continue?
Current Firmware Version V184.108.40.206_10.0.57
Uploaded Version V220.127.116.11_1.0.42
Small remark : the settings-help-files are sometimes not really helpfull : some settings are explained or explained onces are not available in the settings.
Thank you for the detailed instructions. I have been waiting for a long time to flash my R6700v3 and it finally worked. My fault on not researching the recommended routers before buying one, but my old one was starting to have a lot of issues.
Flashed with recommended starting build and then did today's bin.
