    is there a "Asuswrt-Merlin" firmware for Netgear R6300v2 ?
    I saw on ebay:
    "NETGEAR 100% New R6300V2 DualCore WiFi Router Merlin AsusWRT FW DD-WRT 100%Work"
    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/182181000115

    Let the Chinese colleagues say
    who are present here
    they once suggested adding a their project (installing applications) to tomato (good idea) but the tomato situation is complicated and no one has taken up the topic.

    I tested on r6400, r7000, r8000 because I had such routers in my hands.

    I like tomato, but ... Rmerlin & XVortex has better Asus drivers
    Netgers run faster on RMerlin than on OFW and tomato , this is my subjective feeling

    When downloading a firmware or returning to OFW, you need intermediate images

    And if it is safe, who can know it.
    It seems to me that if you look at the OFW Asus, it can be the most dangerous when it comes to the back door, PRISM etc.

    Hello Pomidor1 !
    I use the Netgear R6300v2 router, with the installed firmware Merlin AsusWRT FW - 378.56_0-X5.9. What should I do to upgrade to a newer version? I've never done this ...
    Please tell me how to do it right, thank you in advance.

    download this image and just look for the router's current page, I do not remember exactly but in administration it probably is.

    Wait until you flesh and after the appropriate message switch off and turn on the router.

    in the event of trouble, reset the router with nvram cleaning using the 30/30/30 method

    Ok! Thank you !
    I seem to have one of the very first versions of Asus MerlinWRT !!! Interestingly - in the latest version 7.7 there is a Russian language?
    Only I do not know anything about reset the router with nvram cleaning using the 30/30/30 method :)
