Hello guys,

I have an old router I have been using since 2008 or before that.

It is a netgear KWGR614; that's it Very Happy
I lost its box and package so I do NOT know any more information about the device. So, I looked about upgrading it to dd-wrt ...



Help me out please..

RealTek device. Not supported, probably never will be, most likely. Only has 4mb flash, so not really worth the hassle, I s'pose.

That's 'bout same as WGR614v7 I swapped out recently.

Its old atheros radio still worked ok but ain't really worth nothing now days.
I felt sorry for my neighbor still running it and gave him an extra E1200v2 I had laying around.
That helped bunches since they have a few iphones, ipads & Neflix on TV wireless Cool

Yeah, I'm sure almost doubling processor speed helped a LOT.
