I've flashed my Netgear WNDR4300 with trunk r41336 and have run a series
Everything looks great! I can restore backed up settings, I can
configure it from scratch too should I desire.
Sysupgrade works fine on my WNDR4300 via the web UI. Paul if you're
still having issues with this on your WNDR3700v4 it may be specific to
that model; I do not have one of these to test on unfortunately. But
sysupgrade on the WNDR4300 works and works well. All settings are kept
when sysupgrading too.
If it helps Paul out I can email him my config file, write me directly
for it; that should eliminate any mistakes that have been overlooked.
Easy to do.
Will run the router for a few hours on the test bench and do some
traffic through it, should that play nice then it's problems resolved on
my end :)
