Updated 2/21/2017

DD-WRT v3.0-r31495M std (02/21/17) for NETGEAR R9000 (changeset 31495)

  • Flash R9000-factory-to-ddwrt.img build from NETGEAR firmware.
  • Once dd-wrt is running, you have to use ddwrt-netgear-R9000.bin to flash future updates.

Currently known issues:

  • 2G and 5G leds are not operational since they cannot be controlled through gpio.
  • Current opensource wireless driver has no support to control these leds.
  • 60G interface info is currently not correctly display in status pages and due to missing 60G client, 60G operation is untested

If you want to revert to NETGEAR firmware, flash: ddwrt-to-netgear-fw-R9000.bin
