|I have a Router Model Belkin F7D3302 v1 which is running the Firmware Version "DD-WRT v24-sp2 (03/25/13) mega - build 21061" and would like to update it. Nothing wrong with the router per se, just want to stop running 6 year old software if I can avoid it.
The router database page https://dd-wrt.com/support/router-database/?model=F7D3302_v1 recommends this mega build: "DD-WRT: Factory flash dd-wrt.v24-37305_NEWD-2_K3.x_mega_f7d3302.bin"
Howevver, when I upgrade to this version (over the web http://192.168.1.1/Upgrade.asp ) the firmware doesn't upgrade. There is no error, it goes through all the steps, the router reboots, but stays at the old version. I suspect this is because of the version jump from 2.6 to 3.x. Can someone perhaps point me to a workaround?
Also, would it be safe for me to upgrade to "DD-WRT Broadcom Generic - NEWD K2.6 - Mega dd-wrt.v24-37305_NEWD-2_K2.6_mega.bin" or would that brick the router? This one is listed on the page for F7D3301 but not for F7D3302.
