The router database recommends 17201 as the best, what do you guys use on your 3700?
Since i'm currently on stock, is it alright just to flash the .img of any build and then 30/30/30 reset or first flash 17201 and then upgrade to a newer build?
I need one that has the least problems with WiFi, i noticed some build have USB problems which i could care less for because i have a NAS already. I care more about router stability performance of WiFi as main purpose to is stream HD movies over the LAN from the NAS.
P.S does webflashing still semi brick the router with 17201, and i read your not supposes to reset settings when upgrading build, is this true? If it is should i reset settings after flash or just preform 30/30/30 rest?
I have a wndr3700v2. I have stopped using ddwrt for quite awhile since it didn't quite work effectively on this model. Been utilizing openwrt/gargoyle however there is a wifi drop bug for the past few months with openwrt + ar71xx.
I'd like to hop back to good ol' ddwrt but like the OP, I'm clueless as to the performance of these ddwrt builds.
I've personally found 17987 working best for my WNDR3700v1 so far. I tried up to 18024 but I do like the LEDs working (especially useful when trying to figure out which channels are functional and which aren't on my router).
My WNDR3700 has been running for 28+ days so far uninterrupted on 17987. Never did have much luck with 17021 for whatever reason so was on 16785 for awhile prior to the 17987.
Hopefully we'll get a new release soon (with working LEDs
