upload button greyed out after choosing chk file

Hi all,

 

Total Newbie here--I downloaded the most recent firmware for my r7000p, reset my router, but when I choose the chk file, it doesn't allow me to upload it. What am I doing wrong? 

 

Thanks for your help!

The ".chk" file is for

The ".chk" file is for flashing from stock/vendor firmware to custom only. It is an intermediate step. If you already have custom firmware (any variant) installed, use the ".bin" -  i.e dd-wrt.v24-K3_AC_ARM_R7000P.bin - file for flashing. If the probem persists, you may have a bad file image which is failing the pre-flash signature check. Hard to say without more information. Best of luck!

yes, that is what I am trying

yes, that is what I am trying to do. I reverted my router to stock firmware, and then tried uploading the bin file. Downloaaded the chk file from this site, so not sure how it could be bad. Is there a way of checking it before trying to upload it?

 

thanks for your help!
