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:

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.

Any chances of DD-WRT on this device?

If another router has not been shipped to the developer as a donation since the one in hand is damaged, no router detection information dumps provided, etc., then the chances are none.

Hello, I have dumps all mtd pars of R8000P and serial output. I can share the dumps and serial output.

You can try by adding a request in the bug tracker:

I ended up having to buy an 8000p on an emergency basis (work from home, router bit it, only one available) a few weeks ago, and once I got my network stable again, came here planning to get back to DD-WRT only to find this thread and be sad.

I'm not in a position to donate a full router, but would gladly chip in if we can get 10-15 folks willing to send enough donations for the developer to buy one (figure that's easier than trying to import one). I've donated to Brainslayer in the past (like going back to the WRT54G days), but in this case I'd want to use the donation specifically to try and get an 8000p Port.

Anyone left lurking on this thread that'd be willing to chip in?

(and for those wondering, I had to re-register as I can't remember what ID or email address I used way back when. Smile )

TBH you are far better off finding a deal on a Qualcomm Atheros router. R7500v2, EA8500, R7800, R9000.

The driver support from Broadcom is a big sigh. R8000 users are relying on an experimental driver ATM.

Re-register been there done that, lol.

Why was no ticket opened with serial dumps added to the bug tracker? I guess adding it is not that important? I don't feel like I should anon yet another device to Dresden.

Trust me, had I had the time to worry about it, I definitely would have been looking at other options (Netgear Genie makes me want to cry). But in the case, I had an hour to have a new router up and running because of a workshop I was running that afternoon, so my option was what was on the shelf at Best Buy that day. Then I didn't think much of it for a while, and finally went to get around to getting DD-WRT so I could get things like I want them, only to see the sad news. But hey, it's 2020. Not like I expected something to go right. Very Happy
