Just realized that my Netgear R7000 upstream speed was only 1.7Mbps due to a firmware issue.

Can I flash from v3.0-r37985M kongac to the latest version in the router database, version 3.0 build 40559?

Will a backup restore all my settings...openvpn, firewall, guest network etc?

hmm... not very wise to load settings file from a different builds...
do not use that build from routers database

last firmware is here
ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas/2020/

yep, reset prior update, you could do a reset after and than manually rebuild settings...

Hey! Thanks for the quick response !...

It has been a few years since I have had to mess with the R7000. Only when I upped my modem speed did I notice the Upstream throughput was very low, and subsequently discovered the router had a past history with this issue that was corrected by firmware.

So you recommend
1> doing a reset (hold the reset button for 10 seconds or use the factory reset from the GUI menu?) which will clear all the settings.
2> Next flash with the latest firmware from your ftp link.
3> Then I can reenter all my previous settings....if they apply to this version of firmware. Right?

Sounds like I have my work cut out for me Smile, since I have openVPN, VLANs, Guest network, passwords, firewall etc.
