Anyone know if I flash my R8000 with DDWRT that my EX8000 mesh extender will still work? Also what is a stable build to flash my R8000?

Flashing your R8000 will have no affect on connection between that and extender.

Thanks very much. I just wanted to make sure that my EX8000 will still work. I've used DD-WRT back in the ages and have lost touch since.

Yes it will work, but if you want to match 5 GHz radio chips the R7800 is a better choice.

R7800 is also better in terms of hardware, driver and dd-wrt support.

I'm using a R8000 and am yet touch wood to find anything that doesn't work with it.
