I have recently got the new Netgear D8500 Router
http://www.netgear.com.au/home/products/networking/modem-routers/D8500.aspx?cid=wmt_netgear_organic

From everything I can tell the mainboard and chipsets are identical to the Netgear R8500 but with an additional DSL modem daughter board added.

Is it likely DD-WRT build will run on this? Bootlog attached

DDWRT doesn't support ADSL routers. Probably one or two old ones.

Not so worried about the DSL side of things. Would be more interested in just getting DD-WRT on it to start with.

You'd have to be willing to sacrifice your unit to test if it works or not.

I would not try though as I've currently searched, there is no available stock firmware to download for the D8500 from Netgear's site in-case you soft-brick it and have to tftp back to stock.
