I have read a lot of the pages on this forum as well as the announcements, however, I am still not clear which is the stable firmware to flash my R8000 as suggested in one of the announcement pages, or the steps to "successfully" flash.
Appreciate your help.
PS. Not a newbie to flashing stuff, but yes to dd-wrt. Cheers!
They are each done through their respective web interfaces, so not much to instruct about flashing process.
Always best to flash over wired Ethernet and when running DD-WRT you may want the factory defaults tab.
Here are user manual and FAQ for R8000 in case you perform hardware reset for restoring factory settings.
This is something you may want to do before flashing, or while still running netgear factory stock firmware.
