A German user over at the SNB forums has posted a bootlog that he got connected over a serial console and it seems that the WNDR3700's firmware is already based on OpenWRT.

I've attached the bootlog if anytbody's interested.

And the WNDR3700 is not realtek Base, it use AR7161, same as DIR-825 B1, that large realtek chips is 8336SR, the gigabit switch. the AR7161 is under the small heatsink.


So it possibly isn't incompatible?

i guess so, because it's obviously broadcom based... maybe someone has to contact brainslayer and send him a device for testing.

Can you clarify why the WNDR3700 is obviously Broadcom based? I don't see any Broadcom chips in the previously posted FCC pdf.
Someone else also started a thread for the Netgear WNDR3700 in the Atheros WiSOC based forum

So what I'm hearing is hope is not lost? There may yet be a chance this will run DD-WRT?

yep, it's quite realistic that this device will work with ddwrt & openwrt.

I'm new to the dd-wrt forum and totally unknowing how to go about installing a new firmware (non-vendor) into a router... but since I bought the Netgear WNDR3700 and must now work with the appalling UI I started looking around for an alternative and dd-wrt seems to be the most likely candidate.

Is someone working on a dd-wrt version for the 3700, or is the latest build simply going to work on it?

Is there a way of safely testing this by me?

I don't think that your router will up after the upgrade. Please wait for a compiled version for WNDR3700.

I hope DD-WRT gets ported to this router quickly because the factory firmware is full of bugs. Outgoing VoIP calls do no last more that 30 seconds, even with port forwarding enabled. I do not need port forwarding on DD-WRT for VoIP to work. Static routes and/or their implementation of RIP-2 is not working either. DD-WRT works fine with a Windows 2008 router on my network, but the Netgear firmware does not. I only had the router for less than 12 hours, but I already found a few show stoppers. I am going back to my old Linksys.

I got the VoIP problem fixed by disabling SIP AGL on the router. Static routes still don't work for me.

i would suggest that you contact brainslayer and ask him if he is planing to release a build for this unit.

I asked him and here is the answer:
