The major features are: Support “AP mode” and “Auto IP” in AP mode & Support DFS channel in Australia, Canada, and Europe. Perhaps Support “Port Forwarding Enhancement” may be important for some but I use a separate much more reliable router which alot of other people do already. If only the DFS channels were also available in the US also..


So I'm gathering that if I use it as a router and wireless AP, and don't use port forwarding, that there are few if any concrete benefits to the new firmware?

In AP Mode w/ Auto IP you should be able to use all 5 ports plus time server access. Hence you get a wireless 5-port switch, w/ limited usb NAS support.

Yeah, you won't get much concrete benefits, but surely they've upgraded/fixed parts of its OpenWRT core, so in theory it should be more reliable.. though, may not necessarily always be true :rolleyes:

Why do some devices show "unknown" instead of the name?

I have been using an XBOX 360 to play video content from my ReadyNAS streaming via DLNA over wired connection. No issues with 7.98.

Wiped all settings, flashed 14.98, ReadyNAS cant be seen. Everything else seemed ok (populated Attached Devices table, finally).

Wiped all settings, flashed back to 7.98, all ok, ReadyNAS visible again. :confused:

Well I suffered from the blank attached devices with 1.0.7.98 but it works perfectly with 1.0.14.98

Hi, I have two Netgear ReadyNAS Duo and ReadyNAS 4000 units and they are recognized and working fine with both firmwares 1.0.7.98NA and 1.0.14.98NA. Perhaps it may be a network config setting on your ReadyNAS? I have nothing fancy nor special configured in my ReadyNAS that I can recall. I did nothing special to get them recognized. They are automatically recognized and show up with both firmwares. So please check your configs, reboot the router and see if your ReadyNAS shows up. I do have hard assigned ipaddresses to my ReadyNAS' also. They show up fine.

By 'recognised', do you mean by the XBOX? I could see my Duo fine on the network with 14.98, as with 7.98. The issue was the XBOX picking up the DLNA service when using 14.98. Not sure what I could change on the Duo to affect it - I did try restarting the DLNA service, rebooted everthing that was or ever had been connected to the network...and tried going back to 7.98 (success) and then back to 14.98 (no-go)

It feels like its a router setting...I use an allocated IP address for the Duo - as I say, the Win7 and Mac computers on the network could see it ok.

Re: New Firmware Posted: WNDR3700/WNDR37AV Firmware Version 1.0.14.98

I'm not using the USB at all in this router so I cannot speak for that or any of its features. I am using port forwarding and it's working like a charm. The version 1.0.14.98 works wonderful as my router has been going steady for a week now with no reboots. Just this weekend I've installed it on the remote router. So we shall see tomorrow if there are issues with this router when 2 of them connect together using 1.0.14.98. I doubt there will be, but I have to test it anyhow. I'll let you know.

Re: New Firmware Posted: WNDR3700/WNDR37AV Firmware Version 1.0.14.98

I just setup a Synolog NAS and Dune media player and have my 3700 connected to a LinkSys WET610N located in my stereo cabinet.

I have not had much success with Blu-Ray streaming. I first had to disable Enable Video Network in the 5GHz settings which removed most video stuttering. I still get the occasional audio drop.

Has anyone else had this issue and does the 14.98 solve this?

A 50' CAT 5E ethernet cable connected between the two works perfectly.

So far, both router using firmware 1.0.14.98 are working quite well connected together using port forwarding.

Re: New Firmware Posted: WNDR3700/WNDR37AV Firmware Version 1.0.14.98

It's odd that the routers don't auto select 1.0.14.98 when you check for an update. I've read some issues with media devices being connected. I don't have anything plugged in to the USB on mine. Are there any major issues with this 14.98 firmware?

I believe that version has been removed from the servers, and I might de-sticky this thread if the next version doesn’t appear soon.

The instructions are at the dd-wrt and openwrt site. You can try these:

How do you flash via TFTP?

Re: New Firmware Posted: WNDR3700/WNDR37AV Firmware Version 1.0.14.98

tftp was installed by default but vista & 7 no longer install it by default for security reasons. Linksys use to make a version of it available for free on its ftp site. I believe WinAgent makes one, and tftd32/64 is a daemon but it also includes a client as well. Also make sure you tell the windows firewall add the client & remove it from the firewall after you've finished using it. I've used the WinXP tftp client & PumpKIN for many years simply because they work and was free. I use the command line version mostly but the GUI versions are VERY nice as well. Perhaps others can give you advice on this matter.

Re: New Firmware Posted: WNDR3700/WNDR37AV Firmware Version 1.0.14.98

I forgot to mention that TFTP DOES NOT VERIFY that you are flashing the CORRECT firmware before proceeding like what most WebGUI flashing do. You can easily DESTROY the bootloader which will require JTAG to recover because although TFTP will write it correctly to flash according to the layout specified, the "incorrect" firmware when booted may perform writes in areas that it is NOT suppose to. So, be VERY careful and double check the firmware before proceeding.

Re: New Firmware Posted: WNDR3700/WNDR37AV Firmware Version 1.0.14.98

So, here is my story ...

Upgraded firmware to 1.0.14.98 when it came out, and before it was taken down. Everything seemed fine.

My broadband connection (via TWC) is 30 down and 5 up.

The other day, I noticed my two computers that are hooked up to the router via Gigabit Ethernet were only pulling 15x5. Called TWC and argued with them for awhile, but long story short, finally just reset both the modem and the router. This, after discovering that while my wired connections were only getting 15x5, my WiFi (on 2.4) on another desktop and two laptops were getting 30x5! This was Sunday ...

Reseting the router got my speeds back to where they should have been, and all was fine until today. I tested the wired systems against speedtest.net, and was getting 25x5. Not that big a deal, but I was suspicious. Sure enough, I tested one laptop on Wifi and ... 30x5.

Reset the router, and wired connections are golden again.

I am actually not using any of the really "advanced" features at the moment (no AP mode, no IPv6, no bridging, etc.), so this is really a mystery to me. I understand why the wifi connections won't always get 30x5, but the wired?!

Any thoughts are appreciated.

You should first call TWC and apologize to the minimum wage support staff :rolleyes::rolleyes:

The firmware was pulled because they various found serious issues with it.

Reset & flash-back to previous for now....
