According to the dd-wrt website the netgear wndr3400v2 N600 is compatible with dd-wrt. However when I try to find the firmware for this router I can not find it. Can anyone help me find this and also help me with installing this to the router?
Thank you for the informative and constructive post - thanks for taking time to post. You are clearly well versed in the website structure and where to go for the relevant information.
Regrettably for myself, the other poster in this thread and the sales guy who also the used the router database in the shop to assure me of the compatibility - who are perhaps less familiar with the website - this was unclear.
In terms of constructive feedback this message needs to be much better communicated to avoid further confusion.
by the way for the record this router only compatible of DD-WRT, Tryed other open source versons but no luck. _________________ D-Link DIR-615 D2: DD-WRTv24-sp2 (07/24/13) std (SVN revision 22118)

I too bought this router thinking it was compatible with dd-wrt. I'd consider donating it although I would like to get it back at some point (hopefully with dd-wrt loaded on to it).
I'd be willing to pay postage both ways and even some sort of $ bonus if I could have some assurance it was going to the right place - an actual dd-wrt developer with time to work on it, not just a black hole.
The router's factory firmware seems to NAT everything and has a short timeout - so even two systems plugged into it as a hub lose TCP connections after about an hour. Very annoying.
If it'd be easier, I could provide a linux shell account/tunnel to my network and "remote hands" - pacific time business hours.

Is this still alive. I did the same thing as the other people.. referenced the database lookup and found that WNDR3400 was support and made the purchase only to get it home and find it was WNDR3400v2. Are there any updates?

Yeah its alive-ish I got this router last week for he same reasons and well now We are stuck i guess?well julian made the offer but I e-mailed her and she said she hadn't donated her router,wanted the staff to contact her first i think
I'd love to but I just blew my last bit of money on this router,broke broke over here,my old router died but how long can you ride a linksys 45g anyhow?
Anyhow We should just keep this thread alive.
BTW i have never used DD-wrt or any open source firmware But I have read good things about it including upping the transmission signal so i can get more then 2 bars on my upstairs desktop(only computer I own)
Well, it's been 8 months and nothing on this router? I'm interested in taking it further if someone would like to point me in the right direction. I know Linux and am familiar with compiling. I noticed that it looks like the Asus RT-N53 uses the exact same hardware. What would be involved in converting it to a Netgear image?
