Recently I've bought router Netgear AC2100.
Unfortunately, the netgear software doesn't support repeating Wifi.
I tried to find dd-wrt software for it, but there it seems that R7200 is not supported.

Does it have some specific hardware that couldn't be patched?
If not and it has a Soc similar to some other model, whether it is possible to use that version of dd-wrt?

I can't find anything to go on as far as finding hardware specs on that router. Do you have the FCC ID #?

I think this may be the possible Mediatek model.

Basically I've bought it here https://www.walmart.com/ip/NETGEAR-Nighthawk-AC2100-Smart-Wi-Fi-Router-R7200-100NAS/770680374

Even though the walmart site claims "walmart only", it looks the same as the router mentioned in above message.

In addition, it feels strange but even having the router physically I have no information about it - no documentation, and the only thing labeled at its back is the serial number.

Should I unscrew it to get some more information?

"Another" MediaTek model. The only way you'll get more info on this router is to open it up and look at what is on the board. Not sure if telnetenable works on this device to get into the nvram variables. Also not sure if there is a serial header to use to do a serial dump from to get any valuable information on it. Seems like a lot of device manufacturers are going MediaTek since Marvell is rather crap. Guess to support 'new' devices, BS will have to take the plunge and start looking into the MediaTek details, or people will just have to suck it up. FWIW, most of the MediaTek devices I have encountered that are not currently supported by DD seem to work fairly well on stock firmware, and considering where they are sold mostly, most consumers don't necessarily care about custom firmware. They also *gasp* enjoy having a phone app to insecurely maintain their router *cringe*.
