I signed up for this forum for the sole purpose of just saying THANK YOU! to the OpenWrt Team and it's contributors. I have been suffering from bufferbloat on my network for about 2 weeks. Ever since my wife wanted to get Netflix, online gaming has been a nightmare. I started to do some research on this and found OpenWrt. At first, I was a little pessimistic about trying to flash my router because I didn't want a paper weight on my desk. However, once I found my unique firmware image for my WNDR3700v4, it was a piece of cake (no pun intended ). With SQM QoS, this eliminated almost all bufferbloat and I get an "A" on DSL report's speed test. Wife can watch Netfilx, kids can traverse YouTube, and I can play LoL and Overwatch with no issues.
It's projects and communities (might I remind, mostly voluntarily) like this that bring exceptional technological advancements to systems all across the technological industry which should be implemented, in the first place, by the product manufacturers. If I did not discover and implement OpenWrt, I would be SOL because I just can't afford to go by new routers, all willy-nilly. I am the sole provider for my family of 4 so money is tight but I will, the first chance I get, be donating to this project. What little that may be, I know that it helps. I hope and wish others will do the same because this project/community is far more deserving than anything I can provide!
I would like to ask one question regarding support. As I said, I am using my WNDR3700 for OpenWrt but I have a Netgear R6350 acting as a WiFi AP. I would like to eliminate the WNDR and strictly use the R6350. However, I did not find this router model on the list for supported devices. Is there any chance that I can get some insight on this and possibly which direction to start looking? Once again, I don't want a brick, so I am being very cautious with my implementation and very keen on my research.
Once again, THANK YOU ALL!!! You have been a lifesaver for my networking needs and look forward to keeping up with this project!
