Netgear WNDR3700 2.4ghz broke?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I have a WNDR3700 set up to run two wireless networks

2.4Ghz WPA2-PSK - Pikachu
5Ghz WPA2-PSK - Raichu

They run simultaneously since my android phone and older laptop only use 2.4, but my wife's laptop, work laptop, and netbook use 5Ghz.

So the attached devices page wasn't working the other day when I was adding a printer with a static IP, so I updated from V1.0.0.6 to V1.0.0.8

But now my 2.4Ghz network is offline and won't come back! I've verified it is enabled and the 2.4Ghz light is on on the front panel. It just sits there solid, unblinking, and invisible to all my 2.4Ghz devices.

Ideas?

If not, how do I downgrade the firmware?

I wish my WRT54G hadn't died on me... Thing lasted 6 years LIKE A BOSS. All this new network equipment is crap in comparison.

I love the fact you named your networks after pokemon lol

Also have you tried to downgrade the firmware yet to see if it sovles the problem?

When I get home I'm going to try upgrading to a beta firmware posted on Netgear's site (1.0.0.10) and if that doesn't work I'll downgrade back to 1.0.0.6 but that would suck since my Attached Devices page listing DHCP leases would stop working...

/sigh such is life... Kind of wish I bought the Linksys E4200 now :/
