Availability of Open Source Firmware for Netgear D7000 Modem Router


Help Compile and Promote additional 3rd Party Resources and Support for Netgear's Nighthawk AC1900 VDSL/ADSL Modem Router. (D7000-100UKS)

This specific model is a 802.11ac Dual Band Gigabit Modem/Router for the UK market and advertises itself as: 'Works with DSL ISPs like BT Infinity, TalkTalk Fibre and more' . I myself am using it with Plusnet's Unlimited Fibre Extra Subscription. 

After a bit of Googling and searching the normal sources of Information (openwrt.org / dd-wrt.com etc.) I get the impression there currently isin't much Information or Community activity focusing on this particular model. I'm wondering why this might be, I mean it's only an R7000 with a A/DSL Modem built in... isin't it?
Does any one have any Ideas or resources they are willing to share? 

Thanks in advance.

NB: Just to be clear this Topic is for the D7000 and NOT the R7000.

Hi, I am also looking for an

Hi, I am also looking for an alternative firmware for this  router I just bought in Australia. I wanted to replace the combo of ADSL modem (Huawei) + router (Asus AC66U) with this one which has both modem and router both built in. I thought this would be better than the previous one but for my surprise I do not have all of the features nor stability I had with the previous combo. The DDNS is not usable, I configured the first day and was only availabable for the first day, and then never again, so I can't use DDNS and thus can't use my IP Camera, nor the VPN that has buit in. I wanted to change the DDNS but I found that there are only 2 providers they allow you to use (No-ip and Dyndns.org and Netgear which seems to depend on No-ip). It would be good If they allow you to use other providers such as https://freedns.afraid.org . I contacted NETGEAR Support but they insisted me on using the public IP or contacting No-ip service. Hope they hear us and fix/support the issues listed here.

Hi again, Is anyone

Hi again, Is anyone experiencing  connection  issues? From time to time I have to reboot the router in order to conect again either through wifi or wired. The strange thing is that I can see the Wifi SSID broadcasted but can't  connect with any device (nor cellphones, nor laptops). If anyone is experiencing the same  issue, please let me know, I need to know if this issue happens only to me or if there is anyone else. I have just opened a ticket regarding the DDNS issue shown above and today had  expanded it by adding this issue also.
