    Kong DD-Wrt or NG 6300V2 firmware upgrade on a NG AC1450 router?

    Ordered a refurbed Netgear AC1450, to support the needs of a wireless home surveillance system, VoIP, and general net use.
    I know its an AC1750-6300v2 that has been gimped for Costco.
    As is, the firmware is a problem child.
    Plan on flashing firmware upon arrival but not sure which option to use.
    Stability and reliability are primary concern, then VPN, QoS etc.

    The Kong firmware I'm considering is the older, but supposedly more stable v24-K3_AC_ARM_STDold.bin version.

    Just wondering if anyone has "been there and done that" and has any advice?
    Leaning towards the Kong build.

    Thanks in advance,
    A

    You'd probably get better results on a techweeny site like dslreports.com.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    It replaced a new (but economy) 802.11n router
    throughput went through the roof, speedtest.net results are similar, but torrent speed increased 500%
    security camera image quality, major improvement... etc.


    Got lucky, newegg ran out of them like the next day too.

    wish it was something like that...

    Came home about three weeks ago to find back door kicked in and my house robbed.

    Sorry to hear that, man. That is one luxury we have living in an apartment: the sense of security being one of many units in a secure, coded building, several stories up.

    Edit: That being said, my girlfriend's car had the drivers side window smashed in a month or two ago. About half a dozen cameras on the building and they didn't "see" anything. Go figure.. I'm pretty sure those "cameras" were purchased at Toys 'R Us.
