My WNDR3800-1CHNAS is currently running:

openwrt-22.03.3-ath79-generic-netgear_wndr3800ch-squashfs-factory.img

I seem to remember there used to be specific librecmc images for the WNDR3800CH too, but they seem to have been removed.

So, as suggested in issue #107, I flashed via LuCI either of these (version 1.5.13):

librecmc-ath79-generic-netgear_wndr3800-squashfs-factory.img, or librecmc-ath79-generic-netgear_wndr3800-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin

and I ignored the warning message that they are meant for WNDR3800, not WNDR3800CH.

After flashing either image, I lose the ability to connect via LAN to my router (although the LEDs seems to show that the router is booting ok).

My only way back is to re-flash openwrt via nmrpflash.

What should I do to have a working librecmc on my WNDR3800CH?

Thank you very much in advance.

I second the WNDR3800-1CHNAS support request!

These are offered on Ebay, and I bought one specifically for LibreCMC, not knowing it was the Charter Comm "-1CHNAS" variety, and went through the same trouble. Yes, OpenWRT runs on it, but then it sadly has a bloated non-libre kernel.

The OpenWRT page https://openwrt.org/toh/netgear/wndr3800 says the WNDR3800-1CHNAS hardware is "Identical to WNDR3800 except NETGEAR_BOARD_ID", and
"WNDR3800-1CHNAS will not respond to the normal WNDR3800 images. Applying this patch does create a usable image: https://github.com/nakarotori/openwrt/commit/c1bb068f18e24f90b155520205b8b54688b98951 "

I don't have enough experience to change the source and compile it for each new release. However, if the difference from the supported WNDR3800 is minor, can LibreCMC include this variant in the supported builds?

Thank you!

These may be found on eBay, and I recently purchased one to use with LibreCMC. run 3

Use caution when flashing unofficial slope or custom firmware to avoid possible hardware damage.
