1) I really wish gamers wouldn't expect so much out of wireless networking. Wire your gaming devices up with cat 5e or cat 6. That is your only hope to be a lo-ping-ho. Yes, I said it, because it just seems like most folks here are bitching because their World of Warcrapt is lagging or some silly shit because they are willfully ignorant. /noapologies

2) I have seen no public commits on this, so BrainSlayer obviously didn't decide to complete porting it because his test device got damaged as <Kong> previously stated.

3) https://dd-wrt.com/donations/

4) https://dd-wrt.com/router-detection/

5) https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Broadcom_detection

6) Maybe someone with one of these needs to do some homework or donate or open a ticket and cross their fingers.

EDIT: There are three devices with identical hardware that could be supported if this were to happen. They would be the R8000P, the R7900P and the R7960P:

https://wikidevi.wi-cat.ru/Netgear_R8000P

https://wikidevi.wi-cat.ru/Netgear_R7900P

https://wikidevi.wi-cat.ru/Netgear_R7960P

I must admit, it would be nice to have these supported, but is custom firmware locked out?

I also found this tidbit elsewhere, but not sure if it applies. The Asus and the 3 previously mentioned Netgear models all share identical hardware, just not sure if Netgear uses an encrypted CFE:

This AC86U has encrypted cfe so dd-wrt won't be running on it any time soon, if ever.

Any progress on that? I don't actually have problems with this router's native firmware (and hardware), not sure why people don't like it... Lack of features seems to be the main problem.

None on all accounts. I presume no donated hardware for the cause.
