Netgear WNDR3700v2 no WAN connection

Reported by: Dude_Virus Owned by: developers
Priority: highest Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: packages Version: 10.03.1
Keywords: Cc:


I have a netgear wndr 3700v2 router which works fine with the stock firmware. The issue with the stock firmware is that the wireless signal strength is low plus it causes an issue with my dell streak by constantly rejecting the wlan by saying incorrect security. I decided to update the firmware to open wrt however there is an issue.

I installed the firmware from the 1st link and it got installed correctly. I reached the gui of the router page. Now come the main problem.

My isp has provided a static ip so i need to enter the static ip and dns. Well i have done that but the router doesnt detect the wan connection. There is no light on the wan port and I am not able to access the internet be it via wired connection or by wireless.

There is no mac registration required by my isp and I have confirmed with them and no mac is blocked. The internet works if i connect a different router and configure the router as per the static ip setup. Also i have power cycled the router and the modem and have even reset the router. I have even tried to reset the nvram but still i do not get a WAN connection. I can confirm that the modem is fine as if I plug the modem directly to my mac system and enter the static ip details in the network configurtion i have an internet connection on the pc. I can confirm that the router is also working as on the stock firmware the moment i enter the static ip details and save the settings i get a WAN light and the internet works.

I reverted to the stock firmware from the open wrt version and then tried the setup and it works. I then reinstalled the open wrt once again and still the same. I tried the router at my friends place who also has a static setup and the stock firmware works whereas the wrt doesnt. Any help as to how to solve it.

I'd guess this is the same issue as #11898.
