I see that the new version supports the ex 6200 extender which I have.

I assume it's same as the r7000 which is load the .chk right?

Yes it loads the ex6200 chk and only the chk, since it has only 8MB flash. Flashing the bin will not work, but should not brick the unit.

There will be soon an article on myopenrouter, that explains how lights and some other stuff works on the ex6200.

Anyways, flashing dd-wrt will transform the extender into a router, giving you a wan port + 4 lan ports.

I think it is a cool unit small and powerful, has a dual core arm 2x800Mhz.

Buttons lights etc. are fully supported. Due to the 8MB flash it will only come with samba/ftp/vpn and the basic stuff dd-wrt includes. No things like webserver,adblock, asterisk, minidlna...

If you don't need such features it is a much better R6300V2, since it has some nice external antennae.

P.S. Flashing back to oem through dd-wrt webif is of course supported.

Thanks Kong.
If I want to use it as an extender with the wpa2 security can I still do that or am I limited there since now I'm putting a router into extender mode so I have to downgrade security and speed?

The ex 6200 now gets me 30mb wireless and 63mb when I use an AC unit which is full speed. Using 5ghz to 5GHz

you should use WPA2-AES for repeater/repeater bridge modes to maintain speeds and connection:
