I flashed my WNDR3700v2 through the regular process using the images provided and from stock fw 126.96.36.199. Everything went fine and I have v17201 build running on the device.
I am now trying to disable the web gui access through the WLAN and cannot find where to set up this functionality. In other DDWRT builds this functionality was under Wireless-->Advanced Settings-->Wireless GUI Access. On the build I flashed there is no <Advanced Settings> tab under <Wireless> but an [Advanced Settings] checkbox under <Basic Settings>. However the -Wireless GUI Access- feature is not there.
Are you aware if this feature was put somewhere else?
I need some dd-wrt for my wndr3700 v1 to be used as repeater bridge, I've check few verions already and it was no this option, /why?
Could someone give a link to any version suitable 4 wndr3700 v1 where will I have repeater bridge option?
I found info that is no repeater option on routers with this chip, however I should be able to use it as a repeater bby setting client mode with virtual network,
no matter how many times I've tried to set it, it doesn't work:(
My primary router is some cisco from upc, working in mixed mode, with WPA personal encryption
Double-checked, no SNMP on the Services tab. The only services I see are:
- DHCP client
- DHCP server
- IP over DNS Tunneling
- PPPoE Relay
- SES / AOSS / EZ-SETUP / WPS Button
- Secure Shell
- System Log
- WAN Traffic Counter

The wiki for this model appears to be inaccurate, but I was able to flash the advertised "Web Flash BIN" (r31924) on the Netgear WNDR3700v2 with the steps below. The firmware build advertised in Router-Database (presently r21061) can not be flashed via the factory default firmware (Netgear v188.8.131.52). The non-viable firmware has filename wndr3700v2-factory_NA.img and is organized under the heading "Netgear WNDR3700 / WNDR37AV v2". Flashing with the prescribed steps in the wiki reliably produces a failure mode characterized by a blinking green power LED and continual boot loop. ICMP echos have TTL=64 indicating that something other than the bootloader is running (that would have TTL=100 according to another user), but no SYN-ACK is received when attempting to open TCP:80 to request http://192.168.1.1/.
Using the newly flashed DD-WRT GUI, upgrade the firmware again and select "After flashing, reset to: Don't reset" with the latest supported "Web Flash BIN" from the wiki.
GOTCHA: after flashing any firmware you must allow somewhere around five minutes for opaque internal processes to complete or you'll soft-brick the device. It can be restored by entering recovery mode and flashing again via TFTP.

Noob, haven't been able to get into router after flashing through gui.
Started following these instructions precisely. Everything has worked as stated so far.
I've made it all the way to Step 5: The Waiting Game. I flashed using the TFTP, but the power led light remains orange after about an hour. Onve in a while all lights come on like it's installing or loading or resetting or something, but still never turns green.
Sorry for reopening this old chain but I'm confused and am hoping for a bit of direction please.
I've got an old wndr3700 v1 with latest (but old) stock firmware.
I want to use this router as a repeater to my Linksys wrt3200acm, so understand I should flash to the right version, which I've downloaded.
Going through the stock firmware GUI I found error messages when using the wndr3700-webflash.bin or wndr3700-factory.img files.
Then I found info on TFTP for flashing from the stock firmware to a dd-wrt version. I've got TFTP running, with my laptop on a fixed IP, then I try to get the wndr3700 into recovery mode... but it doesn't want to know.
The power light goes from steady red to steady green... no flashing and no amber?????
I've tried the 30/30/30 but the same thing happens. Either a red (that turns green as the router boots) or green then then boots.
I get no reply (destination unreachable) when pinging 192.168.1.1 (although the default address for the router is 192.168.0.1, which gives General Failure).
If I try to flash with TFTP (to either address) it just waits for a bit that gives a failure error message.
I think the issue is I can't get it into recovery mode.
