You are absolutely right, and that is what I tried but there is a restriction to upload max 3 files apparently.
I will ask the second poster to upload the file

Very excited, thanks for everyones efforts!

I have a 6700v3. I had tried installing a version of Kong for the 6400 but don't have both radios. No 5ghz right now

What is my best path to try the new official 6700v3 Kong version?

I have never had to tftp before so I tried to push the netgear firmware back to the device from the first post using windows tftp and the ddwrt instructions and also the tftp app but never had any luck.

Do I have to modify the 6700v3 stock firmware file? I probably am doing tftp wrong, would appreciate any suggestions.

Hoping I can get this thing up and running Kong DD WRT soon! Thanks again everyone.

I tried last night to install the 9/3/18 version inside the webgui for WRT, but when it rebooted it still reported it was the May version for the 6400v2 I tried, well I guess it really said it was a netgear 7000

What is your boardid?
Telnet to your router and post output of:
Code:
nvram show | grep board


You could try to go back to stock with the file on the first page of this thread

Or try via telnet / ssh ddup --latest or whatever the CLI method is if you are already on Kong build of DD-WRT. Are you sure the file below is the one you used? I'm pretty sure <Kong> keeps his local repository updated with the commits he made to the main repository for both devices.

http://desipro.de/ddwrt/K3-AC-Arm/TEST/dd-wrt.K3_R6700V3.chk

You may have to revert back to stock firmware and then try again, but if you already had DD-WRT on the device, I don't see how it would've failed unless you needed a .bin file and not the .chk. Someone needs to remind <Kong> to update his suppored devices list as well.

Answered my own question. You may have used the wrong file.... probably best to revert to stock firmware and try again with the .chk file I linked in my previous post.

Hello Kong,

does your new FW version will help me with the following two issues I have? I am flashing the router for a friend.

1. Installed is v3.0-r36247std from DD-WRT (request from Astrill). I cannot upgrade or downgrade. The update runs to 100% and then restarts the same DD-WRT again, same for the Netgear stock from Netgear website. Or upgrade stays at 0% or 1% for minutes.

2. I get an error message when I try to install the Astrill app: -sh: eval: /tmp/astrillvpn: Permission denied

Would be great to hear that this will be fixed by flashing the firmware to your version.

Wrong thread?


I don't think so since I am trying to install DD-WRT on the R6400v2 or upgrading it to a stable DD-WRT version.
The router is now detected also as 7000P instead of 6400v2.

Your first post did not mention the router name or build or version or board and you refer to dd-wrt version v3.0-r36247, which obviously had other issues with R6400v2. Your query has probably been answered in this thread - or on one of the few threads on R6400v2 (not too many threads, though - so doesn't take too long).

Had you read this thread itself, you would have seen references to Kong's new builds 36820 and now 36840. Please try these first as they might resolve your issues - else provide feedback in the specific page for the build.

Issues faced with different versions of R6400v2: https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=312828&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=180

Threads for feedback on specific builds:
Build 36840: https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=316543&start=0

Build 36820: https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=316516&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

... more importantly, there is a risk of you bricking your friend's router due to your haste. Please read the third post of this thread. Then you will not need to rely on the second post of this thread.

Yes, you are right. Missed the information.
Thanks for the reminder.

I am still learning, therefore. Does Upgrading is not possible means the router is already bricked? I hope not.

The router does not seem bricked.
Read the instructions in the first posts and download the attached guide of the first post.

Get your boardid (it is in the guide) and try to upload the file needed for first flash.

It is possible that Astrills builds are protected and that you have to use TFTP to upload the build (in the second post : guide to unbricking)

Thank you egc,

The version installed I got directly from the DD-WRT Database, there is no Astrill build.

I will try later today to follow your guide. I will post my success or no success Smile keep finger crossed.
