I am uncertain what chipset, the TP-Link Archer AX6000 V1 router uses. But it's so rare that any manufacture releases code concerning a Wi-Fi 6 router. If I had to guess, I would assume Intel, since it seems they flooded the market with WiFi 6.

Anyway, TP-Links seems more focused than not on v2 and their other routers, so they have released the GPL Code. I'm sure someone who knows a thing or two can use this somehow.

Here is the page it is located - https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/download/archer-ax6000/v1/#GPL-Code

And this is the direct download for v1 of their GPL Code https://static.tp-link.com/resources/gpl/Archer_AX6000v1_GPL_code.tar.gz

If this was the wrong place to share this, I didn't know where or who to alert (sorry).

It's already been stated that Broadcom AX devices will most likely never see DD-WRT support. It really doesn't take much to look up information on new devices unless there's been no FCC information released.

CPU1: Broadcom BCM4908 (1.8 GHz, 4 cores)

AX Router support for BCM

Broadcom is not forthcoming with SDKs or proprietary driver updates, whatsoever. The only way I can see Broadcom SoC AX devices getting DD-WRT support is by using the stock firmware kernel and binary blobs which will probably not give you any better functionality.
