Was just asked to install better firmware on a Netgear R6350 router. According to WikiDevi, it uses a (MIPS-based) Mediatek chipset and is internally similar to, if not identical to, the Netgear R6260. Does DD-WRT support it? Any of the Kong builds? All pointers to good alternative firmware appreciated! (Note: Posting this under "general questions" because there is no category for this specific brand of chipset, as there is for Broadcom.)

MediaTek belongs with Ralink. I’ll move it there.
If it’s not listed here, then it’s not supported.

OK, Ralink then. In any event, this router looks a lot like the Netgear routers sold in the US, and has a chipset they've used in several models, but its label has a corporate address in Ireland. So, I suspect that there's already a build that will work with it - or is close. Advice appreciated.

I'm digging it up as i'd like to get wrt ported to it.
It is basically R6260 with marginally different PCB layout and support for faster AC standard (1750 vs 1600).

FCCID: PY317300390
CPU: MediaTek MT7621AT (MIPS 1004Kc @880MHz 2C/4T (Dual Core/Quad Thread) 32KB I-Cache, 32KB D-Cache, 256KB L2 Cache, w/ SMP capable)
RAM: 128MB DDR3
Flash: 128MB

Will drop hi-res photos soon™

Just make sure the hi-res photos are 800x600, and if you have to take multiple photos to get all the details because of that, then do it. The easiest way to get support for this device is to buy one and send it to the developer. Outside of that, pictures, serial dump and other technical information posted may or may not help. If the chipset / SoC is already supported, then certain details may be all that's required.

Ya you'll need to send an r6260 or r6350 to the dev for support. They have the same FCC and board IDs.

In the meantime, OpenWRT supports them in their snapshots; have you tried that?
