FlashingEdit

Initial flash of DD-WRT firmware is done though Netgear update GUI using a device specific .chk file

If the firmware you are loading is before svn11600 then you will need to update the firmware using this file first before upgrading to a newer build. After the initial .chk flash (after svn11600) any generic .bin file can be used to upgrade firmware to the router using the DD-WRT Firmware update tab.

These are the notes provided by Eko.

Files listed are located here

Notes:

Flashing Netgear WGR614v8, WGR614L, WGR614WW

For first flash (running original Netgear's firmware) or for tftp please use dd-wrt.v24-11604_NEWD_mini_wgr614v8-L.chk file.


For upgrade when already running DD-WRT (IMPORTANT!):

- if your DD-WRT build is less then 11600 please use dd-wrt.v24-11604_WGR614v8-L_mini.bin file. Then you can upgrade to any build listed below.

- if your DD-WRT build number is greater then 11600, you can upgrade directly using any build listed below. Keep in mind that as newer builds come out (higher svn numbers than 11600) they are also compatible.

Compatible builds:

  • dd-wrt.v24-11604_NEWD_mini.bin
  • dd-wrt.v24-11604_NEWD_mini_hotspot.bin
  • dd-wrt.v24-11604_NEWD_std.bin
  • dd-wrt.v24-11604_NEWD_std-nokaid.bin
  • dd-wrt.v24-11604_NEWD_std-nokaid_nohotspot_nostor.bin
  • dd-wrt.v24-11604_NEWD_voip.bin
  • dd-wrt.v24-11604_NEWD_openvpn_jffs_small.bin
  • dd-wrt.v24-11604_NEWD_openvpn.bin


Additional wiki information about the WGR614v8 can be found here. Some of this data is outdated but it could still provide to be useful.


Simplified Updated Installation NotesEdit

Installation on a brand new WGR614L running stock firmware goes like this:

1. Set a static IP such as 192.168.1.8 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0 on the PC you will be using for the flash. Preferably a WinXP machine.

2. Connect the PC to the router (unplug everything else except the ethernet cable and power supply on the router)

3. Perform a 30-30-30 Hard Reset on the router.

4. In Internet Explorer, go to http://192.168.1.1 L:admin P:password

5. Cancel the router’s automatic firmware update checking, then click on “Router Upgrade” in the menu at left.

6. Upload the special .chk firmware file which can be downloaded here

7. Wait 5 minutes after the router says it is done, then perform another 30-30-30 reset.

8. Repeat steps 4-7 except in step 6 you can now use the .bin files, recommended as of 6-27-2010 is build 13525 Newd.

9. Login and start setup.

The WGR614L uses NEWD builds, use any Newd-2 or K26 Newd-2 at your own risk The max flavor you can put on the WGR614Lv8 is Nokaid. The Peacock-Broadcom Faq explains why.

For the recommended builds I would use either Mini or Nokaid

Enjoy, Buddee
