In case you are wondering why the links to my builds are dead:

Unfortunately I have been advised now by my company to cease all public dd-wrt work as it may be in conflict with my internal projects.

I'm not going to question this decision and will not comment on it any further.

Well this is sudden and unfortunate. You did some great work for which everyone here is grateful.

Hopefully someone can pick up from where you left off.

Sad
Thanks for your excellent work. My R6300v1 was neglected by Netgear but your build made it a great device with solid firmware.
Very Happy

Dag nabbit really wish I'd saved a few builds before it went dark. Now I guess we're at the mercy of Netgear and biannual stock firmware releases at least until Tomato matures.

This is bad news, I've been using your builds since the E3000 days and they were always the best and most stable.
Many many thanks for your hard work, you will really be missed, you can be sure of that!

Given the seriousness of this announcement is there anyone from the DD-WRT project group that we can count on for Netgear R6300/R6300v2, R7000 specific builds?

Honestly I suspect we have been spoiled by Kong and the amount of time he was contributing to this project caused some discord with his current employer.

that sucks man. and just when i got a job and started to earn money, i was going to pay you to add support for a couple of routers in mind and improve some features in your builds.

hope you come back soon. i really enjoyed using your firmware.

Thanks for everything you've done, Kong. You've been a stellar resource. I truly hope someone picks up the IPv6 work you've done. To my knowledge, yours are the only builds that actually support it.
