Firmware doesn't see .chk file it wants a .img file
  1. OK, so I installed the initial firmware for my AC1900 (R6900V2) with Release V1.1.0.24_1.0.1. Do I just have a router the WW-DRT firmware won't work with because it's only looking for a .img file it won't see a .chk firmware? I've done the 30-30-30 and restarted the router, after installing Netgear's original firmware. Am I doing something wrong or should I just give up and accept that I won't be able to use the features that I  know a Kong firmware would give me? I know the firmware is for an R7000 but in my GUI for the router, it specifically says AC1900 so I thought I would be able to use the R7000 since it is also an AC1900?

My best guess is that it isn

My best guess is that it isn't supported... yet. It seems to be a fairly new model... I can't find a lot of info on it. Lately Netgear has put out identical or similar routers and slapped different numbers on it. It is becoming quite confusing. I know that the original 6900 models were Costco routers... might just be a matter of time...
