[edit] Installation

Do not 30/30/30 reset ARM routers! Use the GUI Factory Defaults reset.

  • Use builds in the netgear-r7000P directory (some are missing the factory-to-dd file)
  • Initial flash: GUI reset then flash factory-to-dd-wrt.chk (BS) or dd-wrt.K3_R7000P.chk (Kong)
  • Upgrade: netgear-r8000-webflash.bin (BS) or dd-wrt.v24-K3_AC_ARM_R7000P.bin (Kong)
  • Reset after upgrade not usually required, but if you have issues, reset and manually set up first.

NOTE: The R7000P build target is the same as R8000, so older builds were named netgear-r8000-webflash.bin
Where do I download firmware? & forum build threads for build recommendations

The R7000P is misidentified as R6400v1 in builds 36816 up to 37715, so users should avoid them.

[edit] Disable LEDs

In the GUI, go to Admin->Commands and save the following as a Startup Script, then reboot:

for i in 2 3 8 9 10; do gpio enable $i ; done
for i in 11 12 13; do gpio disable $i ; done
et robowr 0x0 0x18 0x1ff
et robowr 0x0 0x18 0x0
et robowr 0x0 0x1a 0x0

This can alternatively be ran manually (line by line or separated by ';') from telnet/ssh/Commands Reference: dcglabs' forum post

[edit] Forum

Do not use the Tathagata build.
