Sorry to step in on this thread, but i am new to this and trying to change my Netgear R7800 router. Do i need to install DD-WRT on router before installing your firmware or do i just install your firmware?

No any necessity to flash

No any necessity to flash intermediate firmware if you have NG official firmware installed. Just install my build from WebGUI of router.

I followed the steps here to flash my R7800 with the latest version of Voxel firmware (1.0.2.72SF). After going through step 4 it seems like the flash was completed correctly because in the GUI at routerlogin.net it says "Router Firmware Version (Voxel) V1.0.2.72SF" in the upper right corner. I can't however seem to move on from this point to log into DD-WRT. When I try to go to 192.168.1.1 it says the site can't be reached. Does this mean I didn't correctly flash the new firmware? Or is there something else I'm doing wrong?

Everything seems to be working fine for the most part except I am having trouble with my wired connections at times. They seem to drop intermitenetly without warning. The connection always reestablishes itslef quite quickly, but the interuption can cause havoc for certain things like gaming or unsyncing my Phillips Hue lights. Also only one of the ports registers as having a Gigabit connection (i.e. the status lights are amber instead of white) despite having all Cat6 Ethernet cables for everything that's hooked up.
