Experimental R7500 build:

This build does not include support for the quantenna radio 5G and won't likely ever get support for it.
You can flash from Netgear webif by uploading: R7500v1-factory-to-ddwrt.img

Flashing back to Netgear fw through webif is not supported. To flash back to Netgear firmware,
login via telnet or ssh, then run command:

erase linux

the router will reboot and start tftpd server (flashing power light indicates tftpd ready).

Now push oem firmware through tftp client:

put R7500-V1.0.0.94.img


This build is not supposed to be an alternative to oem firmware as there is no 5G support. It is
rather a proof of concept:-)
This build however prepares dd-wrt for full R7500V2 support which has two supported atheros radio
