New DD-WRT firmware for Netgear R7000

DD-WRT has finally gotten new wireless drivers and the r7000 does not have the reboot issues anymore. Works great, especially Kong's private build.  Here is link to the lastest.

Yes. He only keeps his latest

Yes. He only keeps his latest at this site, unlike other areas of DD-WRT. right now it is 26120. Understand these are his test builds but he uses the r7000 for testing. Currently folks are saying guestnet does not work. Brainslayer supports many different routers.
I assume you are aware of the DD-WRT forums. Can get all the info and more there.

I was running DD-WRT on my

I was running DD-WRT on my r7000 but always had an issue with dropping connection every night aroung 11:45 exactly. The router never showed a reboot. But the 2 XBOXs would get kicked offline and the one wireless laser printer would just grab some random IP address that didnt make any sense. Even if i set the printer to have a static IP it would grab an address that didnt even exist on the network. Any thoughts why? Im wanting to try this new build to see if its fixed but that was very agitating. Could i have missed something entirely?

There is not a change log. What they use is a system for tracking firmware changes.  Here is the link to that. If you would go to the DD-WRT forums you would be able to find answers to your questions and lots more.

Uptime 1 day, 10 hours, no reboots. Kong`s 26120m. Awesome! First stable rom for me after kong`s 24345m. Stock firmware (1.0.3.80 or 1.0.4.15) hands up internet when I turn on PC wich use LAN. With this bild 26120m all worcks fine. Finnaly. Lets cross fingers to go BraynStaller with Kong go this way!

Do I need to install an "initial" .chk using the current build (2016-11-10) or should I use the updated .chk (2016-11-15) file before updating to the bin?
