Netgear Nighthawk R6700v2 Ac1750

Postby austin199680 » Wed Oct 31, 2018 10:48 am

This router is amazing when it is working, however it constantly disconnects, and always at the worst of times. Since the support could only tell me to do what I had already done to fix it or spend 120 dollars a year to get actual support I have decided to install a custom firmware into the device. I found that it meets all the specs, but have no idea how I would even begin to determine the routers architecture to decide which version of gargoyle to use. Any advice on either what architecture it is, or how I would go about determining this?

It does not appear to have Openwrt (and therefore Gargoyle) support sorry.
It is the only one in that series (versions 1-3) that has any chance of ever gaining support, but would require development activity upstream.
Routers: Various ar71xx/mvebu/x86-64 for the latest releases

I wasn't able to find much in terms of custom roms for this device. says there's no dd-wrt for this device.

It's not listed in so bad luck. ... 1&start=15 shows an entry from a year back with a partially working build of dd-wrt, but nothing since.
