Need firmware for Netgear Nighthawk AC2400-100NAS

Hi All,

      I need DD-WRT/OPEN WRT/Tomato firmware for Netgear Nighthawk AC2400-100NAS. I guess AC2400 this is equivalent to R7000P. I downloaded the firmware of R7000P from DD-WRT but, the file format is in .CHK, router web GUI accepts only .img file. 


Please direct me. It will be of much help. Since the WAN port on my router is damaged, i want to change the WAN to one of the available LAN port. 


Thanks in Advance.

As I currently own an AC2400, it is most definitely not an R7000P as they have different processors.  According to the list of supported machines for dd-wrt:

The AC2400 is not listed.  DO NOT use a R7000P firmware; it will brick your router.

Both Openwrt and tomato have similar listings of supported machines.  Search the web for them.

Good Luck,
