For your R7000, the correct file is "dd-wrt.v24-K3_AC_ARM_STD.bin"
The dd-wrt.v24-K3_AC_ARM_STD.bin.sig is used by DDUP to check the file is well downloaded.
The file is to use only if you are already on dd-wrt.
If you still on stock firmware, use the file "dd-wrt.K3_R7000.chk" to switch _________________ Netgear R7000 on DD-WRT v3.0-35550M kongac ( 28/03/18 )

is it the dd-wrt.v24-K3_AC_ARM_R7000P.bin file or the dd-wrt.v24-K3_AC_ARM_STD.bin you mentioned?
Don't use the "R7000P" unless your device specifically says its a "P" They are different.
For the initial flash use the dd-wrt.K3_R7000.chk file...then use the dd-wrt.v24-K3_AC_ARM_STD.bin file after that or use the ddup utility.

Looking for more test units (newer models only) for the project...got a brick?...PM me to make a hardware donation. (USA) A donation is not a debricking service....it is a way to "Give back" to the dd-wrt project.
I do NOT provide personal assistance through chat or phone....so please don't ask.

hello does anyone have an Idea why I can not upgrade from the administrator tab. I am on firmware r28444 and would like to update, I found the files in the ftp site, they all fail. I have R7000 not the p. starts to load counts down to 299-297 and I get page can not display.the router freezes up.
I tried older version of DD-WRT for the R7000 in the ftp site,
I tried the telnet proceedure, I logged in and erased Nvram and rebooted, went to 192.168.1.1 DDUP is not found.
I went to netgear and download an older stock version.
