I bought this lovely "ship" on "Black Friday". It's really fast but still it's not running DD-WRT wich is a true shame.

Please all developers out there ...have a look on this one.

Thanks / Henrik

Email these people: hardwaredonation@dd-wrt.com

It should go to Brainslayer, in Germany. Or possibly Kong, not sure where he is from.

I guess Kong will be the best answer as he is more acknowledged on broadcom devices and has been developing
DD-WRT firmware for Netgear routers for a long time...
just contact him on PM i guess

linksys EA9300 has almost identical hardware. gpl sources are available
https://www.linksys.com/us/support-article?articleNum=114663
these next-gen broadcom chipsets are likely to appear in devices from most manufacturers soon. third-party firmware support would be fantastic.

edit - not true. EA9300 has quad-core bcm4908

Thanks anyway.....My dreams might be true one day. I really don't like the Netgear's original firmware.
Mainly because of these things.

1. OpenVPN server is a joke. I can connect One time only from My smartphone to the router. When I'm disconnect the tunnel from My phone the connection is still active on the router. So I then have to turn off/turn on the OpenVPN server.
Also there's no config fields in GUI at all. For 300 dollars things should be more advance in My opinion. Like DD-WRT 😁😁😁

2. Second issue is that block sites doesn't work at all!!

3. Not 100% Stable with the original firmware from Netgear. Disconnects WIFI sometimes. 5ghz SSID

Thanks everybody for getting interested in this matter
