thumb up excellent performance and coverage – performs extremely well with dd-wrt firmware

Netgear’s firmware has well advanced with extra features for convenience and VPN support however wifi connection issues randomly may arise

Upgrade to dd-wrt firmware

This router has been upgraded from Firmware Version V1.0.9.34_10.2.36 to a dd-wrt firmware.

Please refer to the dd-wrt.com site for the detailed documentation and instructions.

myopenrouterCheck also the articles on MyOpenRouter.com.

This R7000 model was initially flashed with the dd-wrt.K3_R7000.chk. Once this was succesfully completed and tested, it was upgraded to the Firmware Version: DD-WRT Kong Mod for NETGEAR R7000 (2018-05-31) (dd-wrt.K3_R7000_20180531).

The dd-wrt firmware works stable and provides an equal perfomance as the stock firmware but with more features for wireless channel controls and use of VPNs. The user interface is the big drawback and is not recommended for novice users.

Configure a Guest WiFi network with dd-wrt firmware

Refer to the the tutorial: ‘Guest WiFi + abuse control for beginners

My objective of a guest network is to offer isolated, yet protected, access to the Internet. Guest users should not have access to my private LAN. This can be achieved with the following settings:
Wireless Basic Settings (‘Virtual Interfaces’): AP isolation enabled.
Network Configuration: Unbridged, NAT enabled.
You will need to assign a dedicated network range and enable DHCP.
