To get support, they'll need serial output and some other info, anyway.... might as well set it up for serial recovery so you can get the serial console output....


Thanks, buddy. Did find a video on Youtube about opening the unit, and also some of the CFE source codes in Asus Merlin's repository, which could be a good reference.


No worries. Of course, ideally, the best option is to donate a device to the developers directly to let them break it, er, figure out how to add support with the understanding that it won't be returned.

Anyone heard anything about progress of any upcoming DD-WRT build for this router?. The router is getting "old/older" for everyday and nothing actually points to some kind of progress here in this forum !.

Next router is going to be a well supported top notch Asus router with good Merlin support. I believe that is the right way to go in the year of 2018.

Just wish that I would have done my homework before spending 280 $ on this forgotten piece of hardware

But what a heck. It's just coins and paper after all Smile

So bought myself a Asus AC-RT86U. My life is so much easier now. Everything works as I expected.100%. And development is truly fantastic.With Merlins custom firmware.

So my tip to all Netgear consumers of this router is these words: "Sell Netgear and buy Asus".

Plain and simple !!!

Sun will smile upon your face again

Only BS had this router, netgear did not send me one. BS accidentally broke his unit, he told me that most things were already working in the port.

I pray for an alternative Rolling Eyes

Same for me, the stock firmware is the worst one that I've ever seen, really unstable and the performance is not constant. A DD-WRT port would save this router since the harware is not that bad.

Also still holding out hope. Mine isn’t even coming out of the box again until there is a port available.
