Tired of all these Ads on my un-jailbroken phones and tablets, I decided to reconnect the Netgear Nighthawk R7000 that was sitting in the dust. Long story short, I recently moved to a new place and some cartons are still unpacked!
Well, it didn’t go that well. After several reboots and crashes, and also after trying to update the firmware I discovered that www.desipro.de no longer offered the auto-upgrade feature I was used to. Kong is still a thing though, but the firmwares are now hosted exclusively on their FTP in beta status.
Therefore, it’s time for a complete update on HOW TO CONFIGURE DD-WRT on your favorite router!
