Netgear R6300v2 support


I own a Netgear R6300v2 and have had Tomato on it. However, I prefer OpenWrt to Tomato and DD-WRT and have been waiting for OpenWrt.

I have just noticed that there is a build for Netgear R6300v2 in /releases/18.06.1/ folder. In the LEDE archived forum, I found that 2.4G wireless was partially supported and that 5G was not at all. I am wondering what the status is and how stable the 18.06.1 firmware is on this device ?



Devices with Broadcom WiFi chipsets have limited OpenWrt supportability (due to limited FLOSS driver availability for Broadcom chips). Consider this when chosing a device to buy, or when deciding to flash OpenWrt on your device because it is listed as supported. See broadcom_wifi for details.

(DD-WRT has an agreement to provide the closed source drivers in their firmware.)

Thanks, lleachii!

I am currently using a WNDR3700, running 17.01, as main gateway (no wifi). It is still good but a bit outdated. I want to replace it with the R6300v2. With wifi disable, how stable is 18.06 on R6300v2 ?
