Netgear N300 WNR3500L v1 custom firmware

For years I have had a Netgear N300 router which has served me well, but it has been lacking several features, one of which is local DNS entries.

After a recent firmware update it had become somewhat unstable, dropping the internet connection, thus requireing a manual restart at times.

I therefore decided that I wanted to change to a custom firmware, and the choice landed on the tomato firmware. This post will try to recount the journey of upgrading my router.
