DD-WRT and NetGear WNDR3700

Flashing DD-WRT on WNDR3700 was quite easy. Follow the standard instructions:

  1. Download the latest version of DD-WRT
  2. Connect using a LAN cable
  3. Use stock firmware's GUI to upload the latet version of DD-WRT
  4. No Need to do a 30/30/30 reset
Once the DD-WRT was flashed, the ath1 (5G) was only connecting at 130 Mbs. Where as the stock firmware was able to connect a a rate of 300 Mbs. After poking around a while, the following settings worked and I was able to connect at 300 Mbs.
  1. In the Advanced settings for wireless on the DD-WRT GUI, select Wireless Network Mode as N Only (5 GHz)
  2. This will enable setting higher channel width. Select Turbo (40 MHz) in the Channel Width
