R7000 hard reset

I have read in 2 different places on the DD-WRT website conflicting/confusing and contradictary information about hard reset.

As I understand it the R7000 is an ARM router.  In 1 place it says that the Hard Reset does not work on ARM Routers.  And yet in other places it states that a Hard Reset is a MUST.

 

I am waiting flash the router until I know if the hard reset is needed or not.  Can anybody provide a difinitive answer please.

No, it's not necessary to

No, it's not necessary, or suggested to preform a 30-30-30 reset on an ARM based router. I've seen posts stating this has actually bricked their router.

Follow tis guide to flash.

Grab the latest Kong firmware here

It is confusing becuse there is no REAL definitive place to get this information. The information is streached over several forums.

Good luck...

I agree with mesteele101 that

I agree with mesteele101 that you SHOULDN'T do a 30-30-30 reset on an ARM CPU.  BUT you need to reset the stored parameters. So you NEED TO DO "Factory Defaults" from the GUI after flashing new firmware. This performs the ?reset? function on the ARM systems.  Some say to do this also BEFORE flashing the new firmware.

hi,

hi,

I followed your guide and was quite happy until I got to Step 6.

 

I did not have any cables in the R7000 except the power and the ethernet from my PC.  My router setup is with the R7000 normally connected via an ethernet cable to my ISP router.   I was unsure if the cable was to be plugged in all through or plugged in at a particular point in the procedure given in the guide.

When it is connected to my ISP Router the IP address range is 10.0.0.1 - 254/  On the NetGear Genie Network Map the Router is shown to have the ip of 10.0.0.1.

When I log into the router the Basic Internet Setup page shows the router with an IP of 192.168.1.93.  The Question on the same page regarding does Internet Connection require a login? is answered No.  So I am not sure what I put in the DD-WRT screen that is shown in step 6.  The guide shows PPOE but I do not know if the guide is written for the R7000 to be standalone, or connected to an ISP router.

This also then confused me with the rest of the input shown in the guide for Step 6.  Do the settings shown apply to the situation where the R7000 is connected to the ISP router?  Would that lead to IP ranges of the 2 routers overlapping, etc.  confusing!   Would the Gateway/Local DNS and Static DNS IP's all be 0.0.0.0?

Sorry to trouble you but any help you can provide would really be appreciated.

The R7000 is connected to

The R7000 is connected to your ISP modem. If your modem includes a ROUTER than you may need to jump thru additional hoops to disable the router. CXontact your ISP and they should be able to tell you exactly how to do this. Theyt may have a standalone modem that can replace you All-In-One modem/router.

The local IP Address will be your Internal gateway (kinda confusing), and it should have already been populated. If not, populate it with the correct setting.

Configuration type: Automatic configuration - DHCP

Fortunately for you, you do

Fortunately for you, you do not use my ISP - Telefonica.  They are absolutely no help whatsoever.  Looks like my project to setup a VPN is stuck for now.
