I am in the process of installing two R7800's.

The first thing I did was to look in the supported devices database for the Install guide/Wiki, no link there which actually baffled me.

A websearch on an Install guide or wiki (for installing /first flash) does not find anything on the DDWRT forum.
There is the R7800 thread with 175 odd pages, but that does not qualify as an install guide.

Maybe I did not search hard enough but is there really no Install guide or Wiki about the R7800?

Before all you good folks are going to give instructions, I do not need them (I think Wink )

But If there is no Install guide I could make one in the process (with links/instructions about backup settings, enabling telnet, first flash, tftp, serial recovery, links for best settings (there is a wiki for that and of course the invaluable advice of @MSOEngineer etc.)

But if it already exist that would be even better, more time to drink a beer Smile

egc, of course I don't own a R7800 but alot of folks that do use Kong.
simple install instructions is in this link --- see the 'Readme' file.
As you probably know it's usually NO problem to go from Kong or BS builds.
I have NO idea if the R7800 BS 'factory-to-ddwrt.img' works but the 'dd-wrt-webupgrade.bin' works fine, AFAIK.
BS 'factory-to-ddwrt.img' has never worked for the EA8500 .... only Kong builds.
However BS 'dd-wrt-webupgrade.bin' works ok....using one now on the main EA8500.

I'm sure others can tell you more. Thanks for all your good work Cool
