    New version of my custom firmware build: 1.0.2.37SF.

    Changes (vs 1.0.2.36SF):

    1. libxml2 package is upgraded 2.9.4->2.9.5.
    2. expat package is upgraded 2.2.3->2.2.4.
    3. confuse package is upgraded 3.2->3.2.1.
    4. wget package is upgraded 1.18->1.19.1.
    5. libubox package is upgraded 2017-02-24->2017-06-17.
    6. curl/libcurl is synchronized with OpenWRT/LEDE.
    7. CIFS kernel modules are added (possibility to mount remote shared disks from console).
    8. Host tools: several patches are added (genext2fs lzma m4 mkimage).

    Example of mounting remote shared disks:
    Code:
    mkdir /mnt/cifs
    mount \\\\192.168.1.10\\ShareName /mnt/cifs -t cifs -o "username=UserName,password=PassWord"
    
    The link is:

    https://www.voxel-firmware.com (thanks to vladlenas for his help with hosting).

    No reset is needed to upgrade from my previous versions.

    FW working great here. Just checking my understanding of it though. The core is fundamentally the same as Netgears? You add and update various packages? The GUI, etc., are unchanged?

    Yes I upgraded almost all Open Source packages leaving only enclosed (enclosed includes WebGUI). Core (as a skeleton) is fundamentally the same as Netgear's to have possibility of using pre-built proprietary kernel drivers.

    @Voxel Hi , I use your firmware which is good,however I am thinking of switching isp here in the uk to sky,I currently use a DrayTek Vigor 130 modem,but to use Sky as an isp DHCP 60&61 is required on the R7800,does your firmware included this as I think the stock does not and I’m not sure how I check if it’s available in the GUI.
    Thanks for any help

    It seems with the new SMB update in the last firmware update Time Machine can no longer see shared drives as usable drives for Time Machine. The shared drives are still accessible but Time Machine can't see them. Can someone else confirm this issue?

    You probably use stock firmware 1.0.2.36, but this thread is for custom firmware (not stock).

    You have this notification because you have used 1.0.2.35SF, but NETGEAR released 1.0.2.36 stock firmware. 1.0.2.36 > 1.0.2.35SF ('>' means 'greater than')

    I have Voxel's 1.0.2.37SF installed and when I check for a Firmware Update using the Netgear Firmware Update Assistant it states the following:

    New firmware is found. Do you want to update the firmware? (Yes) (No)


    Current GUI Language Version: V1.0.0.288
    New GUI Language Version: V1.0.0.299

    Should I install this or not?
