I've just downloaded and "upgraded" my router to DD-wrt. It seems like DD-wrt is still supporting the router with upgrades I tought.

So i've downloaded the chk file in
Netgear WNR3500L v1
WNR3500L Firmware - Webflash first installation
dd-wrt.v24-21061_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini-WNR3500L.chk
2017-09-07

The date says 2017-09-07, but after my install it says
DD-WRT v24-sp2 (03/25/13) mini

Is the date on DD-WRT page just a hoaxs? and there not supporting upgrading this router any more ?

I cannot find any newer realeases under Other downloads either?

My goal is to have a freash upgraded router that has the KRACK bug fixxed..


(And PS do not tell me to buy a newer router :s )

Start by reading the wiki : http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Netgear_WNR3500L

Do not use the router database, but use: ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas/2017/
Use the latest at the moment 33555.
K2.6 builds are in the Broadcom_K2.6 directory.

The latest K3.x builds are smaller so it is possible that you also can use a K3.x build, but you have to research this further

Read the build thread: http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=311800 for others using this build on your router.

Confirmed,

Agreed/ The R33555 release is the first release since the 7/27 release that flashes. It needs to be 7.3MB.

Are you also confirming that dd-wrt.v24-33555_NEWD-2_K3.x_mega.bin works on WNR3500Lv1? I recently tested dd-wrt.v24-33607_NEWD-2_K2.6_big.bin on WNR3500Lv1 and only a wifi connection to the router could be made all lan/wan ports are broken.

Just double checking as this is not a K2.6 build and is a mega build. Both advised against in the wiki...

Do you use K3.X builds and which do you recommend?

33555 is the only K3x build I'm aware of that has been tested to work, I have searched the forum several different ways and have found nothing saying otherwise. Per the wiki, it specifically states that v1 can only use K2.6 builds...
