Hi. I have this Netgear WNDR3700 thats only a few days old. My pings were really latent over wireless so I wanted to try dd-wrt and see if the Netgear software may have been the problem, try and open it up if you will.
I uploaded the file that said initial flash and figured I'd run the Webflash after. I did that and when I ran the webflash upgrade the router lost connection over http.
I can still ping it and get my wireless signal but I cant http into it.
I read about the 30/30/30/, but this router does not have a reset button anywhere on it. I tried a power cycle but got nothing from it.
ok so maybe I'm a little slow. I found the reset button and did a 30/30/30. Router came back up to normal after about 6 minutes.
But now when I try to save any changes to my router I get a blank page and the changes dont save. But that doesnt matter because the connection over wireless now is very poor so I'll go back to the factory firmware.
